In some of my other posts I’ve talked about how the Necron lord is really only a delivery system for the various pieces of ‘cron wargear like the nightmare shroud and solar pulse. More so then ever the lord is key since his wargear is not a for of psychic power so the shift to psychic powers and way to easily negate them is not an issue. Bring on your psychic hoods and rune staff!
As a delivery system the destroyer body is almost mandatory as a foot lord limits you so much- unless you go veil of darkness, but that is sixty points (!) and does scatter with the deepstrike. The destroyer body brings you up to T6 base and gives you a 12”-24” threat range essentially giving you the same reach as VOD.
Given the current game can you argue for a foot lord over a destroyer lord?
