    Warp Spider Exarch and Spinerette Rifle

    Ok, so I'm fairly new to 40k. Got about 1k 1.5k of Eldar painted and based. I want to make a Warp Spider Exarch with a Spinerette Rifle. I already have two others with power claws and dual death spinners. My big question is what does a spinerette rifle look like and how does one model one?

    As far as I know, this weapon has never been officially designed, so feel free to make your own. I even tried googling for it... got a few hits from other forums where people ask the same thing :-)

    Wow, are you going for three squads of Warp Spiders? Crazy if you are, that's really cool. However I've got nothing new, just think that it'll logically look like other 'spinner' weapons.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll think of something I'm sure. I've been loving the modeling and painting so far. Playing... well, right now I tend to lose to a friend of mine who plays marines. I'm going to try out several different tactics, including the Warp Spider overload to see how they work.

    Isnt it a wee bit difficult swarming with models that cost that much?

    Not exactly swarming with Warp Spiders, just using several smaller units (not 10, somewhere between 5 and to jump around and frustrate my opponent. While he's chasing those (especially the Spinerette Rifle Exarch, as I know he fears its AP1), I'll advance with some other troops (probably Wraithguard, Harlequins, Dire Avengers, Striking Scorpions... something.).
    Right now, that's just one tactic that I'm thinking. I know its expensive, but if all else fails I have a bunch of Warp Spiders that I love the look of.

    The AP1 is actually more for scaring tanks since it is only one shot, maybe one marine dead, its real reasons to exist are pinning low leadership armies and hitting rear armour with insta-penetration.

    This I realize, however my friend just fears anything that denies his power armor save a chance of working. Before I had much and we were playing 500 pt games, he kept gloating as his marines saved from every shot of my Guardian squads. Right now, he's a little cocky and I want to catch him off guard.
    He's read the stats on all my units a number of times, and that AP1 just makes him cringe as he realizes that one of his prized marines will go down if it hits. I know that he's been working on a razorback and a predator, so the spinerette rifle could also be useful for dealing with those. If my wraithlord or fire dragons don't deal with it first.

    If you do it right it would not exactly be swarming. The WS speed lets you fight on your terms. So if you jump them all to a similar area and have them fire on the same target while placing them with their second jump so they won't be attacked you have kept them safe and are able to "swarm" each one of your opponents units at a time.

    As a space marine player just starting to field an Eldar army, I would offer that Dark Reapers would make me cringe far more then 1 guy with an AP1 Weapon. 5 Reapers with an exarch and tempest is 11 attacks (3 with blast) that melts space marine faces.
