I likey... a full canoptek list might be in my future. Very much the matrix, but I think amassed, a nearly full, if not complete canoptek army would look awesome

Its not better then scarabs or wraiths, so I don't see what the fuss is all about.
Its not that killy in combat (unlike wraiths), not as tanky (wraiths agains), and doesn't really add anything with its str 6 ap 2 melta (really, you're having problems with armor as necrons?).
But unlike many FW creations, it isn't garbage to take, so well done to FW.
I would say they are about equal to Wraiths frankly, but I have only seen 2 necrons games in 6th, so haven't really had time to see how they function yet.
Verry cute modells, and for the rules: i think they would be nerfed into IA 12

Like a previous poster said, were is there rightful place? Wraiths are about as survivable but do CC better. Is a Low Str (AP2 not AP1) Melta weapon with a 12" range really that scary when taken into context with lots of 24" or 12" Rapid Firing gauss?
I see them fitting in with a heavy Tesla themed Necron army, where gauss weapons are at a premium and need reliable portable vehicle or heavy armor killing options. Lots of Tesla Immortals, a unit of these guys backed up with 2 units of Scarabs and a few Spyders might be interesting.
These provide mobile support to an army like mine composed of triarch stalkers. Whereas before I wanted to use wraiths for their overall usefulness, not having a weapon to fire in the shooting phase doesn't synergize as well as these things do. Now I have twin linked melta shots with these guys ( doesn't matter that they are S 6 when they get in melta range, and AP2 is the new AP1 in some respects.) T 5 means no instant death ( which is what my wraiths currently fear) and that stealth will boost whatever cover they have ( so I would equate that to a 4+ invul. Then we say three wounds and the fact that, like wraiths, they have rending but ALSO entropic strike? This means that those bigger tougher vehicles are going down for sure, and now your wraiths have something they can keep up with and protect from close combat ( screen with wraiths for more fun).
Interesting. The Forge World website says it's available for pre-order to despatch on Aug 31st. I ordered a set last week and it's already showing as shipped. FW orders generally take about a week or so to get to California so hopefully they'll arrive by tomorrow or Monday. It'd be the first time FW would send me something earlier than anticipated. Took them 2 months to fulfill my Storm Eagle and Tartaros Terminators order.

The points cost doen't look that far out - it is the same as a nob biker before upgrades - both are mobile, both are fairly resiliant, although the necron more so, the orks have the edge in close combat, , and have more shots to make up for the worse balistic skill, unit size is equivalent.
When on forge world where do you go to find the rules for units they are listing like you have here
