    Anyone have any unique tactics for the Triarch Stalker and Canoptek Spyder

    I just bought 2 Spyders and a Triarch Stalker and I have had some success but all I'm doing is Scarab Hiving and Marking tanks I don't blow up and having my tank hunting warriors (thank you Nemesor) finish the job, so is there any other tactics that you guys can let me in on also share you unique stories as well.

    The stalker with Destruction Crypteks are golden...twin linked S8 AP2 all over is brutal.

    Canoptek Spyders will almost undoubtedly get separated from their little cousins at some stage, in which case they can make quite a mess of big nasty things with their Monstrous Creature status. Also, I tend to field mine - I have 3 atm - in singles so that I don't lose the lot due to concentrated firepower if the enemy gets a chance.

    Otherwise their main job is to give birth. Yes they do have the ability to repair things or protect units from psychic attacks, but these upgrades cost points which can be better used for providing Crypteks or other wargear upgrades for the Overlords.

    No they are not 'monsterous creatures' like in the rule book. I think he meant just 'HUGE' as a model. The S7 CC attack is not armor negating....just want to clarify that.

    actually they(spiders) are monstrous creatures and thus have all the rules associated with it. aka ignoring armor and 2d6 to pen vehicles.

    Why tank hunters on warriors? It only makes them effectively s5 against vehicles. Doesn't it?

    I think Dark Trainer is on about the Triarch Stalker (as they are S7), and not Spyders.
