I'm new to librarium online and 40k -(have played whfb for a while though) and i was wondering if someone could give me a hand with a rounded combat patrol list able to face anything reasonably well.
i was thinking something along the lines of:
5 warp spiders
with exarch with dual spinners and withdraw
8 dire avengers
with exarch with twin catapults and bladestorm
2 vyper jetbikes
with scatter lasers
ive heard mixed things about the vypers and so am unsure about them, but thought between the bikes and the spiders i should be able to deal with light vehicules.
on a side note - i was wondering about converting the warp spiders using guardians as the base, with necron bodies - the back half- as a carapace and a modified gauss gun as death spinners, but ive not ever had my hands on the back half of a necron body. does anyone happen to have both eldar guardians and unmade necrons so they could tell me if they thought that was a vague possibility.

Hi and welcome.
A couple of things to think about for your list, dropping withdraw, with only 5 bodies any melee they get into is possibly going to be deadly to the spiders. And maybe changing the vypers for warwalkers. They are not as fast but can get more shots for less points.
Never been much on conversions so can't help there.
Warwalkers > Vypers in my opinion: WWs are 30 pts each which is dirt cheap, get some scatters in there (I use starcannons with them, but 3 with a Starcannon/Scatter on each is a costly 210, 180 if you just use scatters) thats 12 str 6 shots..mmm.. in 500 pts CP I'd use 2 WWs, saves you an extra 30 points.
If you you thought my post was helpful, or you just liked it, use the Rep button.
Thanks for the feedback guys,
so you think something more like:
5 warp spiders including exarch with dual deathspinners
2x warwalkers with 2 scatterlasers each
10 dire avengers including exarch with dual shurican catapults and bladestorm
which comes to 399
Also, i was told that a number of the games would be played using cities of death- which i havnt had a chance to read yet, do you think that this type of list will work, or might the warwalkers not be such a good choice? (just guessing here as i dont know the cod rules yet..)
I dont think Necron/Eldar merge will be easy. If I recall Eldar Guardians are 2 piece body - Necron Warriors are 1 piece single mold. So you would need a craft saw (and steady hand). Even after that I could not say how closely the edges would match.
