Default Deathstrike Missle Launcher's and how to use them.

To use this great weapon you have to give it some cammo and hide it behind two Leman Russes Actually I suggest taking two of these bad boys. This way they would have to get rid of the armor 14 tanks in front to get to them or try to get through the +3 cover save the missiles will have.

The plus side the enemy will waste a lot of shooting to destroy something that can't be destroyed. Also if you roll a 6 it will auto fire anyway.

It's really not a bad weapon and can take out things like a nob bike squad with one shot.


Please respond in a dignified and useful manner. I wanted to say my two cents but the thread got locked before I could. Since i said my two cents if you want to lock this I don't mind.

Just curious, but why are you acting like this will get locked so soon, if at all? ???

The other Deathstrike thread I saw wasn't locked and I don't see the IG players here going on crazy rant fests over the Deathstrike.

I don't like the fluff behind them being in a 40k game, but they are a very interesting unit to play with.

Camo is pointless. It is almost another infantry squad. Don't take it.

The way to protect them is to give your enemy too many options.

take my doomsday list.

They either go after the strikes and manticore then get eaten by devil dog/bane wolf and usually a knife fighting squad with yarrick and another unit in a valk.

They go after the dog/wolf/yarrick/valk and the strikes will hit them.

They go after my psykers and the two above mince them.

they go after my troops and everything eats them.

Target saturation with mid level threats is the way I protect and use mine. Hiding them in terrain or behind my psykers chimera.



I repeat. CAMO IS NOT WORTH IT. If your relying on your deathstrike that much that you need to pay 30 points to keep it 16% safer... then you need to learn 40hammers better.

i think the best trick to using them is to simply take 3 of them and a bunch of ither stuff so they have too many targets. basically target saturation as stated above. I just takw 3 strikes, that way if they pop one, big whoop, the rain shall still be brought!

I agree with JD.

In my mech list I use phycological things to give my tanks cover. it is hard to concentrate when a vlak is coming towards your flank and 4 chimeras are running into oyur lines.

Equally pointless thread.

If a thread has been locked, it was for a reason. Don't restart them.
