Default So this came up today, never really had to think about it before.

A squad of 10 immortals are killed, leaving none left standing on the battlefield. A tomb spider is standing nearby. No other ones are standing on the battlefield, only the fallen over ones are on the table.

They gone or do they get a WBB roll?

If they don't get a WBB roll I gotta rethink my 1500 list. :

Hard to say, because for page 13 Necron Special Rule ' Tomb Spyders' it states:

Quote:
... it may self-repair if there is both a Tomb Spyder within 12" and another model of the same type on the battlefield.
Now this is the tricky part, because it doesn't answer whether the other model is allowed to be dead in order for the self-repair to work.

In case you're not getting me let me re-phrase the quoted in Italics:

Quote:
... it may self-repair if there is both a Tomb Spyder within 12" and another model of the same type either dead or standing on the battlefield.
Now that answers the question whether the model can be alive and dead in order for self-repair to work.

In my opinion , I'd say Yes, you can have the WBB roll. Because there is a Tomb Spyder within 12" of the Immortal Squad, and also because there are other models of the same type on the battlefield. (Unless they were killed by a close combat weapon that allows no armour save, or twice the toughness, then I'd say No.)

Just checked the WBB rules and it states that they are in fact ignored for checking WBB, among other things.
