my friend was talking bout deep strikeing in tyranid armies what is it really
hmm i dont even have a rule book yet lol
When a lictor pops out of a bush close to that IG command squad, its deepstriking.
When a ravener pops up out of the ground and opens up with its devourers, its deepstriking.
When terminators foolishly teleport onto the battlefield within charge range of your genestealers, they're deepstriking.
Basically, its a special rule that allows you to teleport a unit onto the battlefield when it becomes available from reserves... provided the unit has the special rule and you're playing a mission that also has the special rule.
can they just teleort anywhere on the field they want to?
The tyranid lictor cant deep strike anywhere, hes got special rules, but pretty much yer, u can. U have to roll a scatter dice to see if u land on target or if u scatter from the mark and if u land off the board, in terrian or in an enemy unit ur gone.
But i think ur mate is on about an OOOOLD SCHOOL tyranid army. It was in the journal. I cant remember what the hell it was called but u could pretty much deep strike ur army. It might have just been ur vanguard models i cant remember but there was extra point costs on everything and it wasnt very legal lol.
Somebody will remember wat the hell i'm rambling about...
EDIT: Memory Returns
I REMEMEBER! It was called a 'Seeding Swarm' and it was from the old 3rd edition. Basically u could drop pod all ur army onto the board. There were limits like 0-1 Hive Tyrants, no guards, no biovores, no rippers and one thrope but it was funny to use. No opponent is going to like deep striking genestealers :shifty:
