So I read through the "5th edition" thread, should i be getting anything else? Or is this army functional enough as it is out of box.
Well the Warrior Phalanx box definitely gives you enough models to make a 1500 point army quite easily...
But with 5th ed. it is debateable how effective said army will be.
A lot more people now are propogating the use of Heavy Destroyers over Normal Destroyers than they were in 4th ed. because it is now incredibly hard for normal ones to take out tanks andf H Destroyers become almost the only reliable way...
However; others disagree (and you can always modify normals ones to heavy ones).
Apart from that...
You will need the 5th ed rulebook and the Necron Codex.
Then youre ready to start playing!
As for cheapest place.
I got my phalanx off eBay from a British seller.
Cost me $180 AUSTRALIAN including shipping...
In Aus its sells for $316 and the value of whats inside = $540. (From what i remember).
Youre deal sounds ok though.
