Necrons benefited from max sized units more than any other army (except maybe orks and daemons) in 8th, but I don't know if that is still true in 9th, as most armies are MSU based.
I assumed this is the same in 9th; though am not sure and am thinking of including some immortals or splitting the warriors into two groups.
This is also the reason why I am not using any LHD; even though they do more damage than Doomstalkers, I feel anything less than ample ablative wounds leaves them too vulnerable.
Also, I know that a C'tan is not a competitive choice, but I just think they're neat.

The new reanimation protocols rules really reward taking Warriors in 20 man units. The Transcendant C'Tan is not horrible. It's not as good as the named C'Tan, but it still has play. One thing to be mindful of is that you don't gain access to the new Command Protocol rules unless you have a Noble as your Warlord. Perhaps not a huge deal at this points level, but something worth considering as the army grows.
