    Opinion - Drop army cheap win

    right...

    so say someone's running an all Deep Strike army...

    has the second turn

    and manages to not arrive on the field until their turn 6...


    since they're the only ones getting shots off, basically in a VP scenario, they win...


    granted, probability's low of this happenening...
    but in this case, how would yous guys deal with it?

    Flood the objective areas.

    Either your opponent spreads out and does little damage to your army as a whole, or he concentrates towards one point and you win because he can't do anything to the rest of your army.

    Rule #1 of scenarios: Play to the mission.


    Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.

    Chances are:
    1 )They'll come in piecemeal
    2) They'll come in long before turn 6
    3) If they ALL come in on turn 6, I would congratulate them.
    4) If the don't come in, you get the points=)
    5) As pointed out, play to the mission.
    My armies:
    16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
    7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
    6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
    4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
    1,500+ of Legion (just started)

    in general when playing against a drop pod army that does the late entry its easy to push them off the table or away from the scoring objective. Drop pods aren't destroyed if they land on your figures, but if you spread your force out so they can't fit and flood the objective as above their not going to win.

    Drop pod armies seem to be the thing now but just stay composed and pick off one unit at a time. Remember other units can't move into drop pods that aren't their own, and if a unit doesn't evacuate a drop pod blow it up.

    I would race straight to the convenience store and buy as many lottery tickets as I could afford before the rift in reality closed and normal laws of statistics began to apply again.

    -that would be quite an amusing senario, where it to occur. it would probably end in a tie, as in one partial shooting phase the DSing player probably couldn't pull off enough kills to make it past the tie barrior, although he would have more victory points, it probably wouldn't be enough to win.
    Procrastination- hard work often pays off over time, but laziness always pays off now.
    Indifference- it takes 43 muscles to frown, and 17 to smile, but none to just sit there with a dumb look on your face.
