I know that this has been asked in the past and I have tried to find the thead that it was on without much luck so please dont beat me up.
When deploying orbital stike onto a a battle field prior to deployment of troops do you have to show some sort of representation. Such as a flag or the sort. Or can it be a total surprise when it comes into play as long as it written down somewhere prior to it going off.
I could clarify this a little but it has been a long night. Sorry
if i have understood what you mean then you do not have to tell your opponent where the orbital strike is placed...just write it down on a piece of paper...

The DH codex FAQ (pg 6) has this question in it.
Q. When using an Orbital Strike, should the opposing player be made aware of the target terrain before deployment?
A. Certainly not. That would quite spoil the surprise when it arrives.
HELL YEAH. Now that is what I like! HEHEHEHE Surprise and MURDER the damn tanks. Lol I expect that the Melta Torpedo thinga ma bob is the besst agains weeky units like Gretchin, or Grots as they call em.
Reember though, you have to target a specific peice of terrain, not just out in the middle of a field anywhere you please (although thaqt would rock).
They sound great but are a little harder to use than you think.
A Rhino? SLOTH!
Yeah, but if it is a large piece of terrain it can go anywhere on it. I usually find even if it doesn't hit anything my opponent immediately runs all his troops away from that piece of terrain. Useful to deny an area or force your opponent to come a particular direction, especially if you can get it landing early in the game.
i have a question though where on the piece of terrain does it come down? do you pick? can it be changed each turn?
like the corner of the hill so it may scatter into his troops off the hill, or what?
A terrain peice would be a hill, a grove of trees, a river, etc. In the Q n A it is stated that the ordnance may be placed anywhere within this terrain peice, but you MUST try to fit as much of the template within the terrain as possible. Where within the terrain it goes is up to you. Dont expect to make up for points in most games, its of more use for strategy (manipulating your opponent) much like the vindicare assassin.
