March 30th is my deadline. Since I am broke I have to make due with the models I have. Basically I have a Necron Battle Force (ie: 28 Warriors, 7 Scarabs, and 3 Destroyers) plus a Necron Destroyer Lord, and Tomb Spyder.
Since it is combat patrol I of course cannot use the Necron Destroyer Lord because he breaks one of the fundamental Combat Patrol rules. So I sketched up two ideas of what I am going to use and I need your guys help (yes you!) to help me decide what to use in each situation.
1 Tomb Spyder
So with idea two at least I can produce Scarabs but I run the gambit of wounding my Tomb Spyder. With idea one I will have a fast hard hitting combat patrol. While with the second idea the Tomb Spyder will greatly increase the survivability of my few Necrons.
So I'm hoping to go up against some Ravenwing, and to be honest, besides that I don't know what to expect.
Well i don't even know anymore, I got myself even more confused since I started writing this...should I just get rid of the scarabs and get a third destroyer and more Warriors? That way at least it will help against Phase Out. But I would need to Scarabs to help me out in CC...dam I'm confused now. :hmm:
And if Phase Out applies in Combat Patrol that is a scary thought. I would only have to lose 300 points...
Well working with what you have:
2 x 11 Warriors?
If you really want a mix:
I have ever played a small battle like this but destroyers will be your best unit.
22 Warriors in 400 points will be strong.
I am concerned about this statement:
While with the second idea the Tomb Spyder will greatly increase the survivability of my few Necrons.
Makes me think that you think a Tomb Spyder works like a Reserection orb.....It doesn't.
I suggest you read the rules and WBB, Reserection Orbs and Tomb Spyders as they all have different effects on the game. Because a if you are taking a Tomb Spyder in List 2 is only good as a monstrous creature not as a WBB point.
In Combat Patrol, no model may have more than 2 wounds. That, unfortunately, rules out your scarab swarms.
So I have a question though...if I took a Tomb Spyder would I be able to spawn scarbs or is that completely off the table?
So I guess my best bet is to just use all my destroyers and as many warriors as I can get...but now the question is...
Tomb Spyder...yes or no?
Firstly, the minimum squad number for the destroyer is 3. You cannot have 2 in a squad. Secondly, in combat patrol you cannot have any models with more than 3 wounds. Not 2.

Yup, I guess that is what I'm going with because of my limited resources. But that's okay. Thanks guys.
regardless of the two wound rule, if a tomb spyder produces a unit with three wounds, i still bileve the unit would be legal, yes? because they are basically just an extention of the ability of the tomb spyder.
