Whenever I play a game I always find myself absolutely clueless when it comes to deployment. With over 100 games of lizards I sort of know where I want my units to go and where I want them to be on turn 3, but if I'm playing another army then I'm literally just putting units down in random places
For me, deployment is the toughest part of the game. What is it for you?
Is it movement? I'm also pretty bad at movement. I tend to move the wrong units at the wrong times, usually boxing myself in >.<
Is it target priority? Do you charge/shoot this unit or that unit? Do you spend an aeon deciding?
What about guessing ranges? Some people have this down to a tee but others (like me) are usually wildly off >.<;;
Would like to hear what others think
Throwing the dice! I can be phenomenally unfortunate. Other than that I find the magic phase is the one that slows me down as I try to think how many dice for this, how many for that, what do I have bound etc etc.
Arms are an instrument of evil, No measure for thoughtful men until there fail all other choice but sad acceptance of it.

Deployment is something I struggle with, although I have been getting much better recently...
Movement is occasionally tricky (oopsy, should've moved them first...!), but normally fine.
Target priority is the bit I've had most trouble with in the past, but I'm feeling much happier about it now. Normally I know what can hurt the bits of my army I don't want to be hurt, and what to do to stop it from doing so...
Guessing ranges is something I'm fairly good at, especially at <18", but beyond that it gets a bit iffy...
My dice are also amazingly bad.
I mean, it's like I dated, then killed, a witches daughter, then spent a night playing loud, obnoxious music through her wall, then smashed all her windows with a baseball bat, then poked her with a stick.
Seriously, I must be cursed or something.

Not sure if this counts, but painting my stuff is the toughest part for me.
It used to be that I could paint up a storm but I didn't ever win the game. Now it seems that the better I get at gaming, the slower my painting becomes!
As for playing the game, I think the hardest part for me is army selection, which can make or break your entire battle plan. It takes a while to understand how things work and create an effective, balanced force. Once you get the hang of it, though, the magic starts to happen.
I always get over critical with my own lists and always strive to get the most out of them it takes me a while to get happy with a list but when I do I stick with it for ages.

Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

For me, it's remembering the little details--like rolling for deepstrike, putting frag grenades on my Daemon Prince, etc. Once I fielded a Night Lord list with two Fury squads but only one unit capable of summoning them...then the unit died. Just didn't think it through....

I am the worlds worst at guessing ranges!I am totaly clueless at this!
Mind you I try not to worry about it too much,not all games have 'guessing ' ranges in.8Y
I know what you mean about deplyment. I'm a new player with fewer than twenty games under my belt, all against the same two armies. Last game was sort of a lightbulb moment. I play Necrons, and I realized that I have to stop worrying so much about countering my opponents deplyment. As soon as I start deploying off of his deployment, I've already ceded the initiative. I realized for me its all about firing lines. The two guys I play really have to come to me. Knowing that, I need to deploy based on the lanes I know he'll have to take. In the past I've spread out my warriors to cover objectives and the like, but end up with them in places they'll never get to rapid fire because of cover. That's still the hardest part for me. I'm also lousy at range. I built my own house, so you'd think I'd know what one foot increments look like, but I always end up closer than I need to be. Target priority is also hard. I tend to obsess about tanks when a round of shooting up a unit that's closing in might be better.
