Default Necron C'tan Help!

Hello everyone. I read the special rules for the C'tan, and it says:

"If a wraithcannon inflicts instant death
on a C'tan it will not be transported to
the warp but will take a wound without
the benefit of its invulnerable saving throw."

Does this only work for a wraithcannon, or anything instant death?
please let me know.

“Each must find their own way. If those in our heartland had witnessed the savageries of the void as have we they would know this. The hand of each of the great starfarers is turned against the other, none will join their strength together just to see their ancient enemies prosper. Neither should we."

Commander Farsight

Chaos Daemons can be a problem, Skulltaker hits on 3+ and causes ID on a 5+ to wound regardless of T. Not nice... Just make sure you roll well in the inv save.

All that is important is known.

Skulltaker rends on a 4+. He is very nasty for the Nightbringer. 4 attacks, hit on 3's kill on 4's.

Take the deceiver (as you should) and then laugh... I cant really think of any shooting weapons that'll cause instant death to a C'Tan other then the wraithcannon, and the deceiver never need be in combat with something it doesnt like. TBH the nighbringer shoudn't either, since those things that can kill it tend to be quite slow (same speed as him).

Ah that was it, last played him as a WFB character when he gets killing blow on a 5+. Anyway, he is uber-evil and can kill C'tan better than almost anything else.

Funny how wraithcannons do not work on him yet d-cannons do.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

It's a matter of power source. D-Cannons are heavier powered projectors.

Important thing to remember as well is that people might try to use Force Weapons against the C'tan to Instant Death them. Watch out for this because in most cases this will not be possible: Librarians are only S4 and CAN'T hurt C'tan with Force Weapons, minimum S5 is required, and then they still need to roll a 6+ to wound.

All that is important is known.
