An interesting situation arose in a game against a Necron player a few weeks back.
I killed his Deceiver and it exploded (as stated in the C'tan special rules) out to 6", taking about 8 Necron Warriors with it (yay!). No saves are allowed against this explosion, so we assumed that the We'll Be Back rule wouldn't apply to the killed models...but since it's not "a close combat weapon that ignores armor saves" it technically allows the WBB roll. How do you resolve this?

Starcannons ignore your save, but you get WBB. So do plasma guns, etc. I would play it the same way you do those.

Actually I think that anything that ignores armour ingores wwb
They don't get a WBB if you caused HtH wounds without saves. Or if you cause shooting wounds of double the toughness.
Assuming that an exploding Ctan causes shooting hits rather than HtH, it would depend upon the strength of the hit and toughness of the necrons wounded.
So. They would get a WBB roll because......
Its strength is too low to be double that of any necron of any type.

the only way that the necrons won't get there we'll be back roll is if the model is hit with a weapon that has a strength value that is double toughness of the necron in question.
so they would get there WBB roll from a exploding ctan
