Unit Focus: Cryptek with Canoptek Cloak
Crypteks are scientific geniuses responsible for maintaining and developing the technology that sustains the Necrons and allows them to crush their foes with contemptuous ease.
Occupying a privileged role in the hierarchy of a tomb world, Crypteks are equipped with an array of unusual equipment to help them perform their roles. Forgebane allows you to equip your Crypteks with one such piece of equipment, as well as making the Cryptek available in plastic for the first time – but what exactly does it do?
The Canoptek cloak is a new piece of wargear available to Crypteks, providing some simple but welcome enhancements.
For just a handful of extra points, you’ll be able to significantly improve the flexibility of your Crypteks. As well as providing direct benefits for the unit itself (who doesn’t appreciate the ability to Fly?), this increased mobility will allow you to keep pace with a much wider range of Necron units.
Over the years, the Necrons range has evolved considerably, now featuring a number of fast-moving units. From Tomb Blades to Deathmarks, and even the classic Destroyers, generals have had to balance mobility with leaving units outside the protective auras of their Crypteks – but no longer. With the Canoptek cloak, you’ll be able to keep pace with these units, allowing for a more mobile force than ever before – we’d recommend pairing yours with a Catacomb Command Barge to take full advantage of your bonuses to Living Metal repairs.
The new plastic Cryptek will be available in Forgebane, alongside a Detachment of Necrons for him to lead. You’ll be able to range up the field with your Canoptek Wraiths, or hold back and make your Lychguard incredibly difficult to kill. You can pre-order your copy of Forgebane this weekend – in the meantime, let us know what you’re going to do with yours on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page.
