[Archive] Deployment Tactics

Xander:

What units do you normally deploy first? last? What sort of arrangement do you like to have?

I generally save my war machines for last, so the opponent can’t set up out of site, and so I can make sure they can see everyone.

metro_gnome:

well i like to lay down the wolfboyz last… warmachines close to last…

green infantry usually ends up on the table first… due to the M4…

then the M3 Dwarf blocks… warmachines… and cav…

Hashut’s Blessing:

Usually, my friends and I just do an army at a time. It’s quicker. But, I would say put down a unit of Chaos Dwarfs first (CC troops), then start with the expendables, then the core, then heroes, lords, warmachines.

metro_gnome:

caureful with that…

your opponent may end up placing many of his good unit far away from your anvil blocks…

your dwarfs will have to work to get into a a combat position…

its what i would do… anyway…

Hashut’s Blessing:

I take very few anvil blocks. Generally, I try to magic and shoot their army whilst moving to them.

w3rm:

GAR! I like setting up my important units last (Taurus, war-machines, Anvil Units ect.) Always up first are the green skins.
