Pariahs

Crafted from a terrible symbiosis of Necron technology and human evolution, Pariahs represent the next phase of the C'tan's ideal for the galaxy. These humanoids cut through the enemy with ease, slicing through any reckless enough to stand in its path. Being undead, it fears nothing, making it morale-immune, and it is also clad in the latest Necron metal, representing the strength of the Necron-human fusion.

Tactics

Pariahs are very fast compared to other Necron units. With their awesome amount of hitpoints, high grade infantry_heavy_high armor, and fast reinforce time, they can be used to absorb damage for your army. Their Warscythes are effective against all infantry armor types and commanders, so use them to attack anything that your army has trouble with. They are very capable of going toe to toe with other high tier melee units and are capable of knocking down infantry units with their attacks. They also reinforce in a mere 6.8 seconds with a full time bonus. Although reinforcing at this rate will drain the Necron economy, it will also be hard for the enemy to kill them faster than this given their high health and strong armour.

Pariahs can take down commanders with relative ease, forcing the enemy to hunt them down in order to restore their commander to full health. The reduction to a target's maximum hitpoints takes effect even if the target is invincible and is consistent across all armor types, making Pariahs effective against uber units, particularly melee uber units.

The best way to deal with them is to use artillery and other area effect attacks that can kill large numbers at once, bypassing their high reinforce rate.

Pariahs are one of the few Necron units that do high Daemon damage.
