Default Question on a deepstriking Crisis Suit?????

If I deepskrike my unit of Suits, (Stealth, or Crisis) do they still get their 6" move during the assult phase?

And if they do get the 6" move, can they charge a unit?

Sorry if I posted this question in the wrong spot, I didnt see any sub rules forums, Im still new to this site.

EDIT: Wow! It just so happens once I made this post I see a link to a sub rules forum. Damn, that allways happens. Sorry guys, just so I dont need to make the same post again can I just get an answer, it is just a simple yes or no.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, the answer is no. They don't get to move or assault in the assault phase when they are deep striking.

I didnt think so, but I was not sure. In the game that was played the other day we allowed them to make the move on the roll of a 4+, an they where able to. At least now I know the real rules.

Thanks again.

Yeah...its one of the reasons I often don't DS my crisis suits. The scatter problem is mostly solved with the devilfish, but being stuck awkwardly close to units is often troublesome. By deploying normally, you lose the surprise factor, but dont have to worry about that one turn without JSJ.

I've always found deep-striking a harassment unit (twin-linked missile pod crisis suits) behind enemy lines to be very beneficial, especially if they've somehow massed up in a far corner - lets me fire at vulnerable flank/rear armour on their vehicles and usually out-ranges most return fire.

Risky, but against IG I like to deepstrike behind Mortar squads and Basilisks. If it works, you get a few kills first turn, and ensure that they don't do too much damage. However, if you scatter too far you generally fly off the board.
