    Swarms are considered to be constantly in motion, so I would say yes, as the tallest post for a swarm base is just half the height of a warrior, and I found nothing in the Necron Q&A to say either way.

    Simple answer: models block line of sight to models up to 2.5 times their own height. So compare the scarabs height to the warriors and you&#39;ll have the answer.

    In the Necron Codex it does say that the swarms are sometimes large enough to block out the suns...So yeah.....I guess they could block LOS as well.....

    BiD already answered the questian correctly there... so to avoid confusion Scarabs do NOT block los, the actual model can block anything up to 2 times its heigh, and im pretty sure warriors arn&#39;t that small.

    Where did "2.5" come from?

    I always thought it was up to twice, or 2x their height?
