    You can tankshock from reserves. If you deep strike, you’re coming from reserves. How do you tankshock with a deep striking vehicle? You place it on top of an enemy unit?
    That should be totally legal. The enemy infantry unit moves away if they succeed. Or they can make a death or glory attempt and if they succeed you would stop 1″ in front of the unit.. hum.. where is that? ^^

    In the 3rd edition Necron codex the monolith had an awesome rule, when it came in by deep striking if it landed on other models you moved the models out of the way and made room for the monolith lol

    What is the wording for vehicles deep striking over enemy units? Are there different rules for skimmers deep striking or something in the rules that says they may not mishap?

      It’s a rule in the liner section that says when ever they are forced end their movement over an enemy model you would move the skimmer so it’s not over the enemy anymore

        Would that get you more than 1″ away though?

    It’s too bad the Raider can’t DS tank shock, it was a pretty fluffy concept and seems to have rules to support it, maybe next edition ….

    Novastar: Such an awesome idea, making some dog tags up! 🙂

    The nashorn is pronounced “Nars-Horn”, they smoked Shermans from over 2kms away, if they were in a prepared position (had already run test shots to correct aim).

    I’m guessing that the lightning claws themselves are transparent resin add-ons. The plastic claws have been removed, to get that lighting effect to work. Does your professional team include anyone with experience copying shapes in resin? If so, you guys could do some awesome weapon conversions with these kits!
