Default Claws

Hey
Having read my codex, i noticed about 3 units have the weapon 'Claws' but no where does it mention what they are? are they just CCW's or something more sinister? 'cos at the minuite flayed ones are looking rubbish!
Cheers in Advance.

It is just like in new codexes it says people have a close combat weapon. AKA just a knife. It means nothing to be honest it just says what they use as a weapon.

So on a wraith it says 'claws' they are the claws on the model they attack with. it confewrs no extra rules, or anything special it is just listing the weapon.

Another question why do Flayed Ones have a ballistic school?

I think you mean skill.

It's mostly just for fluff reasons I guess. Everything 'has' some kind of ballistic skill, even if they don't use guns. On the rare occassion they simply cannot use ranged weapons for some reason then I think they use a '-' or a '0' to represent this.

'Claws' are a similar deal. It's just something to put in the gap where the weapon entry is.

When GW finally gets round to updating the Necrons they're probably gonna be changed to rending (fingers crossed).

You also need a ballistic skill to use turrets etc during planet strike games, so units without a ballistic skill can't use them.

Great ok thanks. So they are not really anything special. That makes flayed ones look a bit crappy. Not worth the points for a squad. Cheers

FLayed ones are actually very good. My 4 man squad beat up a 5 man SM assault squad, whose serg had a powerweapon. I lost one Necron.

And your forgetting their special rules.
