The Warp Spider Squad is an Eldar jump infantry unit. Their name is taken from small spider-like creatures that inhabit the wraithbone structure of Craftworlds and can "melt" into it, reappearing at another location. Warp Spiders use teleport packs to relocate through the Warp – a highly risky technique, especially for Eldar, who are stalked by Slaanesh in the Warp.
