Everyone wants to know what is going on in Psychic Awakening: War of the Spider. Let’s start with the obvious – who are the “Spiders” of 40K.
This is less of an analysis of what may or may not be in Psychic Awakening. But with a quick tour of Lexicanum, we came up with quite a few “Spiders” for your consideration.

Warp Spiders – The Eldar Aspect Warriors made an appearance in The Greater Good, and have ancient models.
Illuminator Szeras – Pretty much a metal spider. Also a dude who is all about improving his Necron form and has an old finecast model.
Tomb Spyders – Someone’s got to make the Scarabs.
Harlequins – fast, deadly stalkers of the… webway. Get it!
