Hi, I dont actually play necrons and therefore dont have the codex and dont know all the exact rules for every entry. But recently I've seen more and more of these "Wraithwing" and "Spyde Wall" armies out there, and I have to say they do look really interesting.
So I was Wondering if any of you experienced necron players could tell me a little about it is this two types of armies work on the table.
I'll warn you up front. I haven't actually played either of those armies, but I know the theory to it quite well.
Wraithwing: 2-3 full units of wraiths, usually with a destroyer lord with phase shifter and warscythe, turbo boost to a position close to the enemy and out of line of sight (wraiths and phase shifter can move though impassable terrain) then assault any dakka, tanks or HQ they can. This does not work particuarly well against CC elites, it is to kill anything that shoots at 'crons, while the 'crons shoot the CC specialists...hopefully the terminators die before they get close.
Spyder Wall: I'm less familiar with this, but like the wraithwing, you use 2-3 full units of Tomb Spyders which (while slow and clumsy) are CC beasts, ignoring armor as MCs. This is complimented by having each Spyder make 1 scarab to increase the units wounds. The drawback, while very hard hitting, it is slow...painfully so.
Hope that was helpful,
Dark Lord of the 'Crons
And every spider is 1 kill point...
I've tried the Spyder Wall a few times and it is deadly. Almost unfair, sometimes.
The idea is that you get 9 x Tomb Spyders, each pumping out a Scarab Base to increase their 'wounds', so to speak. These form a wall in front of your Phalanx, giving everything a cover save.
Against MEQ armies the Tomb Spyders will tear everything up, except TH/SS Terminators perhaps, but you've got masses of Warriors behind the Spyders pumping out Gauss shots for stuff like that.
