    5th edition Tomb Spyder 1500 list

    With 5th edition round the corner and troops becoming all important to the game I've been toying with the idea of massed warriors supported by spyders:

    HQ lord with no wargear

    Troops 5x 10 warriors

    Heavy Support 9 tomb spyders

    Total: 1495


    The list is probably destined to fail but I just want to see my opponents face when there's 9 MCs on the table.

    I would take a res orb if your lord is going to walk with the troops, lose one spyder? But you're right, you're missing some of your best units (Immortals, destroyers, etc). Assuming you could get the spyders up there, it would be interesting alright...

    Well the idea with Football practice, is there are TOO MANY tomb spyders for the enemy to kill before they get close. Add in a scarab base/spyder jumping them up to 5 wounds will help guarantee their survival. And once they get up to claw range it's likely too late for the opponent to deal with them.

    Really I'd suggest dropping one unit of warriors to get an Immortal squad out there for some fire support. Or some destroyers but immortals would fit the phalanx + FP pairup better.

    I'm so tempted to buy 7 more spyders but I'm not big on skipping rent....

    I'd say your mad but i've seen this list used before and its nasty by my account. Also although there deployed seperately they count as one unit so unless your opponent destroys all 3 spyders he won't get a kill point for the unit!

    And like everyone else has said get a res orb you can get it by turning 5X10 into 4X12 that should free up enough pts to get one.

    Drop your lord and some warriors and get a Deceiver, it will be well worth it.
