Hello, I'm a rather new Necron player, and I was curious about a special ability that a Cryptek has called lighting field when upgraded to Harbinger of the storm.
Now the text says whenever a unit makes a successful assault against the Cryptek or his unit they take an immediate D6 strength 8 hits. Now here is my question are casualties caused by lighting storm counted as casualties for combat resolution or are they simply removed and do not get their attacks?
Also...abyssal scepter it seems really underpowered since it is against leadership, and not wounds. Am I correct in this thinking?
Thanks in advance guys!
Yes, they count.
The Abyssal staff uses the normal to wound chart but you use their leadership value instead of their toughness value.
That's not really all that bad for an AP1 template that's so cheap points wise.
Thanks for clearing that up my opponet and I were confused about it, but it is good to know we did something blindly correct.
Not to mention if you put a despair cryptek in a deathmark unit, the ap1 flamer wounds on 2s against their target

Even if you don't place them with Deathmarks, they're still wounding on 4+ against most opponents, 5+ against the majority of others, and 3+ / 6+ against only a few. For an AP1 weapon that auto-hits, that's pretty damn good!
I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.
