Hey I was just wondering (and I can't seem to find) what order armies are suppose to be deployed in? I know there are variations but is there a certain formula for the majority of pitched battles?
Such as: core, special, rare, characters?
That makes sense to me...
Thanks in advance
How we used to do it at the Preston store back when I played in 01/02, we used to deploy one unit/character each, then the opposition would do there's
But that, was a long time ago :]
In the BRB, page 2 and 3 "deploy for battle" has all the rules covered: a bit special for characters and warmachines but that's basically all (some units like tunnel teams and so on have their own deployments to be found in the respective armybooks).
It ain't easy bein' green... :-)
Someone once told me that in 40k you have to deploy your army in some specific order. It doesn't work that way in fantasy. Just pick a unit that doesn't have a special deployment rule and put it down. All warmachines go down at the same time so if you pick one, you pick them all. Then characters are placed either in units or on there own.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
it's in the RB but here it is basicly in nutshell
after determining who depolys first, each player (starting with the first) deploys one unit (eg a unit of Dwarf warriors) then the other player deploys a unit (eg Dark elf Corsairs) this continues untill both armys are out of units to deploy. now some things have special deployment rules eg) Plague censors and Empire detachments are deployed at the same time as the unit they were bought with is.
big one to remember is ALL warmachines are deployed at once so that's all Cannons, Stone throwers, Bolt throwers, and others
characters are deployed last after both sides have deployed. then scouts are deployed

It's also gone now from the new 40K rulebook, written unsurprisingly by the same author as 7E fantasy =)
Thanks so much guys
