Default A friend of mine were playing my space marines vs his Khorne Daemon army

He was trying to tell me that khorne Daemons can deep strike in and assault, I could not find any where in the codex that would allow him to this. Now my question to you all is can Daemons deep strike in and assault?

I just wanted to thank everybody here for helping me out with these issues thank you everyone!

From what I've gathered they can't assault after Deep Striking, so your friend was in the wrong. Would it have affected the game much?

Yea it would of cause he deep striked 2 squads of blood letters, and a squad of 5 blood crushers right by my tactical squads and pretty much wiped them out. It was just a friendly game though I just wanted to know for the future

No there is nothing in the Daemons codex that lets any unit assault after deep strike, IIRC.

But I am certain that no Khorne Daemons can do this. The only action Khorne Daemons can do after deep strike is run (or shoot, but most Khorne stuff can't shoot anything), which can't be used to assault.

thanks for the help, I just wanted to make sure about that cause it just seemed way to good, to deep strike and assault them in the same turn. My next question is, if you are playing Khorne Daemons how do you counter this draw back? because if you deepstrike them to far back there out of assault range, and to close there going to get rapid fire/assaulted .

Normally I try to DS them behind something where they can't be seen. Of course that doesn't always work, so I then run them to attempt to either get behind what I was trying to get behind, or spread them out sou they don't get fried by blast templates so badly.

I I have to DS into the open, then I just put everyone to one flank so hopefully only part of my enemy's army can shoot me. Then I just weather the fire, and pray to make my Invulns.

Then that just means I can assault them, or they've already done the work for me. >

haha yea thats a good point if they assault the daemons, sorry for asking so many questions but if you deep strike into an enemy unit or into terrain does it not kill your unit of daemons?

Drax you roll on the deepstrike mishap table which you cna find in the rulebook. They sometimes can die form that.

i think your friend was getting confused with the rules for lesser deamons in the chaos space marines codex. They are allowed to assault after they are summoned.
