We Daemonhunters play a lot of units that end up in Reserve. I was wondering: do you have to inform your opponent which unit you are rolling for, or is there an accepted way of keeping that secret? Orbital Strike, for example, is somewhat ruined when your opponent starts to guess where you're going to put it.
I believe that you have to say which unit you are rolling for. But for the Orbital Strike you can hold it back and keep your opponent away from terrain!
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
You have to say what you're rolling for out of common sense. If you don't tell, then you could easily just bring in whatever unit you want most with the first successful roll.
Well, I always wrote down on a piece of paper the order of reserves units I was rolling for, so that a third person (say, the person who set up terrain) could vouch that I wasn't switching up units. Oh well, it wasn't that important.
Write down all the units in reserves and number them. Keep this hidden. When rolling for reserves indicate "I'm rolling for #1", "I'm rolling for #2" etc... When the roll succeeds you can show your opponent the slip of paper indicating which unit has arrived.
I have found that the more open with the game you can be the better it is for both players. Nothing is more frustrating than having an unexpected rule cause an argument during the game. So always play nice and you always have opponents to play against.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
