Necron Unit of the Week Series: Canoptek Reanimator


Recommended Posts


Welcome to the Necron Unit of the Week series for 10th edition! Each week will see a different unit from the Codex, Imperial Armour, and Legends datasheets featured for discussion. The goal here is to discover and chronicle tactics for the featured unit so that new players and veterans alike can use this database to inform their strategies with the wider knowledge of the forum. The game of Warhammer 40,000 is ever changing though, and as the rules evolve throughout the edition everyone should feel free to return to older threads with the release of new FAQs/errata, changes in points values, information gathered from games played, and of course the Codex being released. These threads are also great places for newcomers to the Necrons to post their questions about tactics related to the featured units.

Please note that the purpose of this series is not to lament what the current meta deems “ineffective”, or that another unit “does it better”. Those units will get their own threads.


This week’s unit is:

Canoptek Reanimator


Do you take multiple Reanimators in your army?

What unit do you try to keep them nearby to?

With 12" range you 'll probably wont need more than one, provided you can keep it protected.

In the few times I played with it, it was closer to units that terrain kept it safe....


When was the requirement for LOS introduced? I can't find it?

Hm, must have been a ghost in the machine when I was typing. I can't find it in any current document, so my apologies on the mistake.

What would be nice as an addition to this series: 

a picture of said model, and maybe some pictures of models painted by members/fraters/... (put in the Necron equivalent). 



That being said: I dont have one.

Only played a couple of 10th ed games, taking a breather really, but I found the Reanimator much better than in 9th. The d3 extra Wounds per Reanimation really helped out in keeping a few key units (Warrior and/or Lychguard bricks) topped up and healthy. It also seems to be a little bit more durable, or at least it felt that way. It will never be really useful as anything other than a support piece, but for me I think it is well worth the price right now.
