Yes, you can deploy your entire Genestealer Cults army via “Blips”…
Warhammer Community have confirmed today that you can indeed deploy your entire Genestealer Cults army via “Blips”
A few of you have got in touch this week to ask how the Ambush marker deployment mechanic works in matched play games.
We just wanted to clear up that the intent is certainly that you can deploy your entire Genestealer Cults army using Ambush markers if you like – in any type of game. Any and all units that have the Cult Ambush special rule can take advantage of this, though you still can’t start with more than half your army underground. Not even the Genestealer Cults are that sneaky!
Deploying using Ambush marker is a very thematic, though fairly unusual, mechanic, and it does throw up the odd question on specific interactions with some other deployment rules. Don’t worry – these will be covered in a designer’s commentary in a few weeks. For now – enjoy the new codex!
This is rather cool and confirms that all sorts of deployment shenanigans will work during matched play! It seems that “deepstriking” units is still limited to half of your army, however you can indeed have your opponent take turn one not knowing where any of your units are!
They’re all around us, man!
