    Could daemons lose before the game even starts?

    The answer is yes!

    since everyone has to come in on deep strike, a horde imperial guard army with a shat load of troop platoons all having the light infantry doctrine could be dangerous. If the troop platoons are cheap enough and he has enough of them, he could space all of them evenly enough so that the whole board is covered with guardsmen.

    This means that all the deep striking daemons will die no matter where they go.

    Not true...you can always try to deep strike into cover..not allowing them to see anything...granted if you are a daemons player you should expect some casualties to come from ds'ing in...but as I said best thing to do is aim for cover and pray you hit. Deep striking can be really effective if done correctly.

    I see what you are saying but it would take a lot of guardsmen to be able to do that effectively...

    well, considering that your opponent can't deploy in your deployment zone...I don't think this will be an issue.

    But with infiltrate it doesn't matter because there are no enemy models nm the field.

    Is that actually a rule? I don't think it is. The only limitations to the Infiltrate special rule is the fact that you must deploy over 12" if within LOS or over 18" if out of it. There is nothing (that I can recall) that states anything about deployment zones.

    I see what you mean, but for one troop choice these could be a total of 105 guardsmen, I think at least. I mean there probably won't be anyone in a tourny with this kind of list, but I am just saying it is possible.

    I see what you are saying too, but as I said it will still be hard to completely cover the whole board. Without leaving some gaps to fit some guys in.

    There is no way to kill an entire Daemons list in this way; even if you take nothing but bare Guardsmen, you will be very hard pressed to cover the entire table even when spacing out to the maximum 2" for unit coherency.

    It's an interesting concept, but not one that would be very efficient, effective, or most importantly, fun.

    I would not play against someone who tried this more than once, personally, even if it doesn't work (which it will be hard pressed to do).
