Has anyone had any luck with this? Since u can give him wings, and therefore he counts as jump infantry "in all respects" doesnt that mean u can Deep Strike him? I have never seen people talk about it... is it just not effective?
I know not what weapons World War 3 will be fought with. All I know is that World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones.
This doesn't answer the question and I'm curious myself but...
A Flyrant would more often than not be able to fire turn 1. Turn 2 at the very latest. Deep striking means you have a 50/50 chance of engaging in turn two. (minus Lictor modifiers if used) Consider that you only have 1/3 to land exactly where you want and in cover. If you fail every single AP 2 weapon will target the Flyrant and probably take him down. The idea of deepstriking such a valuable unit sounds risky at best. They need to be in cover at all times since they're much squishier than a walking tyrant with guards.
I agree DS is too risky. He moves more than enough to get where he wants, and no DS mishaps to screw you.
I'd recommend Having Flyrants be shooty. He'll probably take some hits before he gets in CC anyways, so better to stay at a distance. If your really want to go CC, make him walk there and give him some guards to absorb damage.
Yes you can DS a flyrant. I've attempted it a couple of times and it's not worth. They're so mobile anyways that you can in range quite easily. On top of that, there's the psychological effect of having such a powerful critter moving around from turn 1. If you could assault the turn you arrive from DS (like lictors) then it would be worth it, but as it stands DSing is a risk (due to the mishap table) and there's always the change that it won't arrive till turn 5.
It can be fun to do, but I wouldn't recommend it for tourney play.
"The internet perceives censorship as damage, and routes around it."
Reasons NOT to DS your flyrant.
1) danger of mishap
2) no cover, every gun will be aimed at it
3) can be assaulted
4) may not arrive until turns 3,4 or 5
Winged Hive Tyrants can Deep Strike?
I NEVER KNEW THIS!
(Haha no one is going to like this...)
Actually any Tyranid equipped with wings could DS. I was just looking, and thinking about doing an army like that. Might be fun. Three squads of winged warriors for FA, Winged HT for HQ, three Lictors, and scuttlers on all my troops. Nothing on the table first turn and it all comes on from places other than my own board edge. At the very least it would be interesting to try out for a game or two.
On DSing the HT, I think the main reason you don't see it mentioned is the danger, and the fact that he is firing turn 2 almost guaranteed, if he starts on the board.
it's a monstrous creature
can't deep strike
unless there is a unit type called jump infantry monstrous creature, which there is not
well it's dumb because it will deep strike and get blown to bits
