i haven' got my codex on me, but i don't remember seeing anything about it in the codex, and i cant see anything in the FAQ, so I'd say no.

It's a psychic power that says it sucks models into the warp.

Orb makes no mention of it.

I would argue, fluffily no you don't, as it sucks the targets into the warp if they do not avoid it. Good luck repairing from that

However, rules wise, I don't know. Its not a stat based attack - does it say like instant death or anything?

The Space Marine codex states that it takes effect "without recourse to a saving throw of any kind." So I don't think WBB would have any efffect. The model would already be off the table.

It makes sense that way. I'm pretty sure I don't want to get a WBB from an attack like that simply becuase it makes no logical sense to me.

It is one of those things that can be agrued either way. The model is not there so you should not get a save, but by the rules you can technally say that it is not listed as one of the types of attacks that will ignore WBB, therefore you get one.

Interesting.

Your Necron casualty is gone. There's nothing to come back.

Therefore, by common sense, WBB doesn't work.
