critical zone is also for units that are then able to rapid fire

@hthehidden: Thats only really if you are a shooty army that can move and shoot, like IG because you can see where your opponent is moving and move on away, if your assaulty you definately want to deploy as you want to get forward as fast as possible, plus its hard to shoot you with night fighting.
LEGION3000 (Over a year ago): - delete
You can't assault in the same turn you deep strike, so no this wouldn't work.
Also it is called "NULL Deployment" not "no deployment".
And who are the Noobs making these tactics? You can't re-arrange your deployment once you deploy. (unless you are using one or 2 special characters). Somebody is playing bad house rules.

Very important note for armies with soft faces, y'know, the kind that can't take a hit (cough-tau-cough). When you deploy your shooting units in the back you need to be aware of whether or not your opponent has any flanking units. This can wipe out a gun line pretty handily. You will want to deploy them a little more forward in your deployment zone, like 6" or more, so you have some maneuvering space should you be snuck up on by Snikrot or Wolf Scouts and such. You will buy your shooty units another turn to shoot typically, which could make all the difference.

I was told to never deploy if you are 2nd in dawn of war
SanguisDominus (Over a year ago): - delete
he "No deployment" one would work well with my 'nids, 'cause I can't mishap when deepstriking, and I can deepstrike my Trygon and bring everything on from reserves from where the Trygon deepstriked.

I haven't tried these tactics before but i think it would work. First off have three assault squads on reserve. In the second turn pick out your opponents most dangerous squad. Then deep strike in around the enemy squad. (Hopefully they don't scatter too far)Then assault the enemy squad. Then the overwhelming number of attacks should be enough to destroy anything.

Be careful though because it chews up a heap of points. This strategy is best used in high point games.
thethickaman (Over a year ago): - delete
just a tip i might find helpful to newer gamers (and maybe some older ones)

never end your turn when you think you are done. this might seem obvious but when you're in the heat of battle people tend to forget important things; this can be more blunt like forgeting to move, or much more subtle like using a special ability. always tick off each unit in your head at the end of each phase and ask "have i done everything i needed this unit to do".

it may seem simple, but whole battles can be won or lost by a single forgotten action.
good luck and happy gaming.

@Cow: Yeah this guy must be playing with some made up rules or just phrasing counter assaulting poorly
Alaskan95 (Over a year ago): - delete
i like to use Im Guard i am sort of a nube but my army has defeated orks and chaos wut i figured out that if you use this army you put the tanks in front like a reguler lem russ or one of those walkers long range in cover guard men right behind the front line of tanks
Cow (Over a year ago): - delete
WAit wait wait, how does counter deployment work? Why does he say "or at the same time etc."? If you are deploying second, you setup your stuff to counter your oponent. If you deploy first, this is not possible. That's all there is to it, no moving guys around for half an hour or whatever he said. Am I getting this wrong, can some one help me out?

Also leaving you whole army in reserve is a viable tactic. Its annoying to play against but its not cheesy. For Eldar its just fine. Eldar trickery, not Eldar cheese.
And other armies have that possiblity too, I wont bother to mention them, but they aren't cheesy at all. They fit well in the game.
JackRussel (Over a year ago): - delete
deep striking is waaaaay to unreliable, you could possible loose half your army by deep striking. Outflank is much more effective if you want everything coming on from reserve, unfortunatly very few armies can do it, however, bringing on everything from reserve works alright if your fast like eldar but if not then your coming on in peice meal so your pretty easy to deal with.
Wargamer247 (Over a year ago): - delete
I no this is just a suggestion but I have made a tactic that has been very useful to me I call it the unbreakable wall

If you can get 4 or 5 vindicators and place them side by side with an inch between each one that way you can get some of your close combat squads closer to the enemy with less chance of them getting hit by enemy fire because a vindicator has good front armour so it is harder for your opponent to break the wall this will also give a cover save to all units behind your vindicators
