Ok so my friend has Necrons and has an unbuilt Tomb spider and Necron destroyer lord.
He's thinking about mixing it together to make what he calls a Scarab lord.
Now obviously he won't do this unless people are going to allow him to use it, and my other gaming friends and I will probably allow it as long as...
A) the model looks at least half decent.
The rules are significantly unbalanced.
I ask you on his behalf to help him come up with an interesting/reasonable but not overpowered/ completely stupid, set of rules...
Thanks for all responses
You oculd have the lord mounted on the tomb spyder body, and then place a few scarabs scuttling over him.
As for rules the obvious choice would be to give him the artificer ability of the tomb spyder, to stop it being unbalanced you could count this as being chosen as wargear (and so in the 100 points limit on the lord). maybe about 50 points or something.
Aside from that i'm not so sure.
Could force him to be with a unit of scarabs, that might be an interesting unit, give him the deepstrike ability of the scarabs, keeping within the normal rules could force him to have phase shifter, but say that its just that he is cloaked in a shroud of scarabs that can deflect shots and obscure him.
Hope this helps (Y)
The avatar is the emperor as a pimp. Well, i like it.
Honestly I would do this, but use some of the normal rules for a Lord. Use:
Destroyer Body - To keep up with the movement of Scarabs.
Lightning Field - Since people wound scarabs a lot they will take a lot of hits from it.
Chornometron - This lets you overrun or not be overrun easier.
Phase Shifter - This just adds a bit more survivablity to your lord, but you don't need to take it.
WarScythe - Since this will be a CC unit.
Basically just attach him to a unit of scarabs and run around really hurting things.
tell me, would it look something like the one in my avatar?
