A friend of mine was playing a game with another opponent today and this came up. When we play I allow him to measure the distance from terrain, units and table edge when placing a model for deep striking. He does this so he can hedge his bets on the deep strike roll.
The question that came up today is, is measuring distance from objects legal for deep striking? I personally do not have a problem with this, but if someone can point to a rule that says you can't it would clarify things.
"The internet perceives censorship as damage, and routes around it."
Do the DS rules allow You to measure? They don't, and thus You don't measure.The risk of scattering into terrain, models or off-table is one of the aspects of Deep Strike, and a calculated risk the opponent must take.
