Welcome to Librarium Online!
Any advice on how to get the maximum effect of deepstrike against SM and CSM? I play LotD so all units can deepstrike (deepstriking vindicator lol). I normally deepstrike behind cover about 24" away from the enemy and charge them, but then I just get slaughtered on turn 3. Advice pls
well. since you dont get Sm LIbrarians, your buggered. The only thing in 4th ive evr heard of working is a termie squad DSing with a Librarium, the librarian using fear of thw dark, rouing the untis, termies shooting and assaulting next turn.
i have no idea about LOTD. this should be in the Chaos SM board.
A wise man once said: Blow me @$$wipe :lol:
nope LotD stands for Legion of the Damned, a cursed founding legion who is still loyal to normal Sm, and definetly not chaos. they can take librarians by the way. not sure bout termie armor though
If you're going to DP 24" away you might as well not even DP. Just start on the table during deployment. You'll be about 24" already and can start out on turn 1. DP is meant to get you in close or behind their lines.Originally posted by Log@Dec 19 2004, 07:17

DP up close to a unit you think you can seriously damage with shooting, since that's all you'll be able to do the first turn. You want to try an break them if possible, or at least make them ineffective at shooting back or assaulting you. Try and have a piece of terrain between you and their most effective shooting unit, and stay out of range of any killer assault unit. Best bet is DP behind a devastator unit, or rear armor if you have a good tank hunter unit that can shoot on arrival.
If you're going to DP your whole army, land off one flank of the enemy. Don't let them focus their whole army on you.
I think WolfRaider about has it.
The most worrying thing about the Legion Of The Damned from an opponents point of view is that they can deepstrike during set-up anywhere outside your opponents deployment zone, and possibly even scatter into it.
The idea of a Dreadnought or Vindicator starting play in their deployment zone is un-nerving to say the least. You need to take advantage of this and deploy everything, 1st turn, and in the enemies face.
If not, they are losing their biggest asset.
