The more aggressive Necron Overlords fight not on foot, but rather from the deck of a Catacomb Command Barge - an armoured, repulsor-driven skimmer. While embarked upon a Command Barge, a Necron Overlord is able to oversee the battle, ensuring that his troops are engaged with appropriate targets and that everything is going to plan. More often than not he will become bored of watching the battle and command the barge's pilot to fly him into the midst of the action, where he can launch daring attacks on unsuspecting enemy units, his warscythe decapitating his foes as he flies past.
Annihilation Barges are the Necrons favoured anti-infantry support platforms. Each is armed with a linked pair of tesla destructors - enormous energy cannons that fire ferocious arcs of eldritch lightning. The tesla destructor is primarily an anti-personnel weapon, though only the most heavily armoured tanks can risk its wrath with utter impunity. Its energy discharges wreak terrible harm on living targets, searing their flesh and boiling their blood. Furthermore, the bolts will often leap from target to target before they are finally grounded, leaving a trail of smouldering carnage across a broad swathe of the battlefield.

The model looks beautiful if it's fully put together and painted up nicely. Also, I recommend to people that they magnetize the gun emplacement and the lord. That allows you to swap this out and use it for either purpose. It is however a very annoying model to put together, and I recommend that you paint it before you put it together fully, as there are several areas that are very difficult to get into for detail work, but still visible enough that it needs to be done.
As far as using this in a Necron army... there is never going wrong with a 90 point annihilation barge ESPECIALLY in small games. Command barge is always a win for an overlord or hero, but really the twin linked Tesla destructor on an Annihilation Barge is just sweetness especially against horde armies. The seller sent this the very next day after ordering and it arrived sooner than claimed, which is always good. It was new in box as advertised and there were no defects or damages in any way. Your necron army probably needs a couple of these!
This is an amazing set, you get your HQ, a possible chariot, and a beastly heavy support all in one. You don't need to glue either the Anni Barge gun down, or the Overlord to the Comm Barge. This way you can switch to which would be the most useful against your opponent.
Great set, Amazon prices are to kill for!
