Games Workshop Warhammer 28mm Necron Triarch Stalker 49-18
About this deal
This army aims to provide a generalist build. It’s got units that can comfortably push the centre, with the option of the Deceiver shifting up one or both of the Ghost Arks early on, or stashing the Skorpekh Destroyers in some terrain somewhere. It has ranged threats in the form of the Heavy Destroyers, who can probably atomise a key target early, and optionally come in as reinforcements if the enemy has units especially good at murdering them like Crimson Hunter Exarchs. The Tomb Blades provide board control and premium anti-horde. Finally, the opponent has to deal with the ever present threat that the Skorpekh Lord and his Destroyer buddies can teleport across the board and throw out some coin flip re-rollable charges. Arks for Days The Ankh of the Triarch, ancient royal symbol of the unified Necrontyr Empire used by every current Necron dynasty. Necrodermis - The armour of Triarch Stalkers is made up of the same living metal Necrodermis that makes up all Necron bodies and vehicles. Its remarkable regenerative properties allow it to automatically repair damage to itself; whether this is the regeneration of parts of its hull, the reknitting of metal plates, and the reconnection of circuits and other delicate systems to bring its weapons online again. Many a foe has celebrated prematurely after landing a solid hit on an Triach Stalker only for it return its lethal firepower after a few moments of repair. We are a small team of Warhammer Enthusiasts and miniature collectors, hoping to support and further promote the hobby. Heat Ray - A Heat Ray is a weapon that can either be fired in a focused beam, which can devastate armour with fusion-based Melta energy, or in a dispersed beam which acts like a Flamer and can burn enemy troops out of cover.
The spyder could be useful, most of all the posibility of deny psychic power, but it's a slow unit (the scarabs move 10"). Triarch Praetorians often rode to battle in the hexapedal combat walkers known as Triarch Stalkers. Like an enormous mechanical spider, a Triarch Stalker looms over the battlefield with its multiple slicing limbs and devastating weaponry. There actually is some shuffling around of value here, but overall it probably doesn’t change much about how often they’re seen. The Obelisk, community voted worst unit in the entire game, goes up by 40pts, ensuring that it will continue to get nowhere near a table. The Tesseract Vault, on the other hand, goes down a few points to 550. I’m squinting at this just the tiniest bit and wondering if I should finally finish mine, but realistically that’s still too many points to place into one basket, especially at a high CP cost.They hold a great responsibility - to ensure that the Necron Dynasties never fall. Triarch Praetorians are the only type of Necrons to have remained awake during the long hibernation of the Necron race that took place after the War in Heaven : they view the outcome of the war as a failure, and they chose to forsake hibernation as penance, preserving what they could of their culture and readying the galaxy for the time when the Necrons would rise again to reclaim it. 
If the number of dice in that pool is greater than or equal to the Wounds characteristic of any of the reassembling models, select one of those models to be Reanimated. A Reanimated model: Lawbringer Phalanx – When the vermin of the lesser races run wild, a thorough scouring is required – often on a planetary scale. In such times, the High Judicators who guide the Triarch Praetorians in their work will breach their ancient vaults and retrieve an Apotheosis Orb. An Apotheosis Orb is similar in function to a Resurrection Orb, but vastly superior in form and function. Whilst the orb functions, nearby Praetorians can use its energy to infuse themselves and their weapons with fresh strength and resilience. Triarch Praetorians are implacable warriors under normal circumstances; the presence of an Apotheosis Orb transforms them into a nigh-unstoppable crusade. Only by shattering their leading Triarch Stalker, in whose control panel the Apotheosis Orb is nestled, can the foe have any hope of victor. A Lawbringer Phalanx formation typically consists of a single Triarch Stalker leading two or more squads of Triarch Praetorians. I share your opinion about the praetorians and scarabs. In my opinion, they are the only useful units in the index each turns (average 2 with DA vs 3 from 3 HD), and the HD can move and shoot heavy weapons normally. HD don't have
Envision your Triarch Stalkers leading the charge in your Necron assault, surging ahead of your legion to confront resilient adversaries. Every Necron commander understands the necessity of countering tanks, and the Triarch Stalker’s specialized heat ray excels in this role. As tank numbers dwindle, it seamlessly transitions to eliminate infantry threats. What’s in the Triarch Stalker box Moving up to the super-elite infantry, the Lychguard and Triarch Praetorians, I think things once again look more interesting in 9th. Triarch Praetorians got a tiny point increase (3pts for rods, 1pt for pistol/blade) and the pistol/blade build in particular thus gives you a pretty nifty volume brawler. They’re also much more mobile than most Necron options, able to actually make it to the mid-board to perform actions unaided. They’re still competing with a lot of stuff, but a squad of ten feels like a semi-plausible thing to try that can operate mid-table without much in the way of help or support. Lychguard get a slightly bigger (but still modest) price rise of 4pts each, enough to make warscythe ones look pretty garbage, but the shield ones are worth a real look now. Being able to sit indestructibly on an objective is a pretty big upside these days, and Necrons now have way more CP to play with, so powering defensive stratagems for them is much easier. Most notably, they’ve never gotten rid of the Dispersion Field Amplification and Reclaim a Lost Empire combo (because what Necron list could afford to blow 4CP a turn before), so in Nihilakh you can push these to a cool 2++ against shooting as long as they’re near an objective (which if you go first, they can be pretty much straight away thanks to the Deceiver). That’s pretty good, and certainly on my long list of things to try. Twin-linked Heavy Gauss Cannons – Heavy Gauss Cannons are devastating weapons best used to penetrate heavy armour. They are the same weapon as that mounted on a Heavy Destroyer. In the ancient Necron dynasties, the Praetorians were responsible for maintaining the Triarch's rule and to ensure that wars and politics alike were pursued in accordance with the ancient codes of behaviour of the Necrontyr. As such, they acted outside the traditional political structures, and held both the right and the means to enforce their will should a Necron Lord, Necron Overlord or even a phaeron's behaviour contravene the edicts of old. Lastly we have the Heat Ray. It's a Multi-melta which we know is the gold standard in 9th edition, which will cause problems for anything up close and provides us another anti-tank option. Infantry it's useful as a twin heavy flamer so isn't helpless up close. The biggest weakness of this weapon is Immortals and Warriors often fire at stuff the Heat Ray is wasted on, but pairing with a Doomstalker or lots of Gauss blasters and reapers can hurt a vehicle you focus on.
