i was think it would be cool to have an entire army of tomb spiders and scarab swarm army. you can keep putting in swarms with tomb spiders and those WS 2 attack will hit eventually.

I would think of scarabs as a nice meatshield..

yeh I forgot about that..

if you play using only scarabs, you would immediately phaseout, since there are no NECRON models on the table..

you wil have to talk with your opponent to make it a special FUN game..

messing with the force organisation chart isn't real nice, but having a fungame with models can be done with the consent of both players.

phase out occurs when there are only 25% of the original number of Necrons on the table..

lets say you have 40 necron models (lord,warriors,immortals,flayed ones,wraiths,destroyers,heavy destroyers) if you get to 10 models after your last WBB rols. then the Necron Player loses the game regardless of mission.

so that the lowdown point about necrons, but utilise their powers well, and you may have only a few casualties at the endgame.

yea, i guess that kinda game would be fun, lol, coming with like 300 scarab swarms would be p[lain EVIL. lol, ive been typing the Necron codex(still) and im bout halfway through now, and i just realized every time i spelled the word 'gauss' i spelled it 'guass'. i had to go back and change it EVERY where it was used....
oh well...

well it would be sorta like Dark Angels for SM except masses of scarab swarms and tomb spiders and they wouldnt phase out because they would have special rules about phase out and such.

they would have different rules than regular necrons
seprate army list
they would have a differnt hq choice

also i would like to add that they probably would phase out because, tomb spiders are making swarms every turn, and if you have 10 spiders that 10 swarms a turn and that would be a uber army. unless you roll a 1

guys guys guys, slow down here. first you need to check how many tomb spyders you can actually have in an army. and im quite sure that you can have max 3 of them. and if you want to start out with max scarabs you will get 30 bases. but i don't think a strat like that would work, no monolith, no heavy destroyers, no destroyers, no wraiths. you would have tomb spyders, scarabs, a lord and some warriors. perhaps some immortals to. but you will lack some of the most important units to a necron army.

(but now that i think of it, maybe you can field 9 spyders. but that would be 495 pts)

Ummm as I see it, you wouldn't really have to worry about phase out, as Neither T.S.'s nor Scarabs get W.B.B.

Destroyer lord (ps,lf,gof,ws)
52 Warriors
30 Scarabs
9 Tomb Spiders

2001 pts
Phase at 13
Have the Scarabs go base to base to screen all your other troops... the Tomb Spyders pumping out 9 scarabs a turn.

I don't know man. That sounds like an interesting way to play that is for sure. yeah they don't get the WBB roll, but them setting up a screen for the 52 warriors to just move up and open fire...


Would be very interesting.

::Ahem::

If GW is willing to print, in an Army Book mind you, something as silly as an All-Snotling army list, SURELY you peeps can see that the idea for an all Tomb Spyder/ Scarab Swarm army has a bit more merit than mentioned above.

C'mon guys...you have imagination enough to fight your way out of a paper bag...disregarding the WBB/Phase Out rule entirely for an army of nothing BUT TS and SS shouldn't be that hard.

Why field Warriors in it at all? If there are no Necrons on the table, there's no roll. Consider it say...a rogue or forgotten batch of Tomb Spyders that has been abandoned or cut off from the rest of the Necron fleet. Hence, they won't phase out, because there's nowhere to go.

Anyway...bottom line is why the hell not? If you can dream it up and find a vict...erm...person to play against you, go for it.
