"Spiders" were siege weapons deployed by the Ferrozoicans during the Siege of Vervunhive.[1]


Named by the defenders of Vervunhive, the spiders were the largest of the common siege vehicles used by the Ferrozoicans. A spider measured over 100 metres long and had a number of weapon emplacements studded along their backs, each mounting either a gun battery or a rocket launcher. The most distinctive feature of the spider, though, were its eight clawed wheels, designed to climb the hive's walls rather than break through them.[1]
