Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey everybody, this is my first time posting and im realtivily new to warhammer. I picked necrons becuase i love skeletons. Anyway heres my question about VoD (veil of darkness)
1. If u VoD a squad of lets say warriors right next to a leeman russ, could u attack that turn or would you have to wait for your next turn? Im not sure on this one, i think that you can attack because it says in the codex "at the start of its movement phase instead of moving normally......immediately placed back together anywhere on the table using deep strike rule"
It says that they only follow the deep strike rules for the placing of the squad, not the rest of the turn. My friend disagress with me, i need some more opinions. Can you attack with the same squad the you VoD behind enemy lineS? Thanks 4 ur help
1)VoD is EXACTLY like deep strike, so no assaulting the turn you use it, it will scatter etc.
If you VoD right next to a leman russ you can shoot it (but don't forget you count as moving for shooting purposes) but you cannot assault it.
As long as you don't go within 1 inch of an enemy unit you can VoD nearly anywhere (but since you scatter you have to think carefully).
Yeah once again Outsider is right on the money.
I would like to just add I find it is best to deepstrike about 6 or 7 inches from whatever I am trying to keelorize. It was figured out by someone much smarter then I statisticly, that is the best way to do it. Dont ask me what that means but I have been doing it for a while now like that and never had a problem.
6 or 7 inches is the average scatter distance I bet.
So unless you have poor luck you will land nearly where you want to.
Dang almost forgot always try to VoD 6 or 7 inches straight out from the corner of the unit you are taking a dislike to. Hmm how to describe this, never mind I will break out the camera and show you what I mean after I go pay my water bill.
Yeah, the 6 or 7 rule comes from statistics. Rolling two die, you have the greatest chance to roll 7 versus any other sum total (die1/die2: 1/6, 2/5, 3/4, 4/3, 5/2, 6/1). There are 36 combinations of 2 die rolling, 6 out those 36 sum up to 7. Next come combinations of 6 and 8 that have an equal chance to be rolled.

See I told you someone smarter then I could explain the 7" thing for you.
Now on to my explanation of VoDing to the corners instaed of middle. In this pic you will see the stupid Blood Angels have once again made there way out of the mini closet and taking ofver the kitchen table. What is our Necron hero to do? Ahh yes VoD with his Immortal brothers that should make short work of them.
So our INtrepid hero VoDs about 7 inches away centered on the BA and rolls his scatter dice coming up with a 9 and a arrow signified by the red arrow. BTW this is the first time I have ever actually used the red measuring sticks that come with the basic game.
Then after we adjust his posistion for the scatter roll you see things are not well and alot of Necrons are gonna die. Err I mean umm well whatever you call it when Necrons are Destroyed.
Now lets take a look at the same situation if you use HarleyXJGuys patented VoD method. First your inital posistion.
Then your new final posistion with the same scatter roll.
As you can see this is much better, also you should note I just used Immortals for this example. In a real game using Immortals if you got the room VoD further away so you dont get counter assaulted after you bust you Gauss caps. For this example just assume there was alot of terrain, coffee cups and dinner plates I would figure.
In our last image we see our hero with his Immortal homies fixing to do good things for the C'Tan cause.
