I was looking into the Astra Militarum units and posts and what I was finding is that they are designed to unleash a torrent of fire and specialize in taking out light targets. They have the ability to take on heavy targets but are better suited to fight against infantry when using lots of infantry.
So, I remember looking at the purestrain genestealers last night and noticed that they fill pretty much the same role. They don't really have a way to shred up monsters/vehicles. It seems the Primarch is designed to be able to do that. But at 150 points and possibly ending up behind your own lines on bad rolls for our version of deep strike what might be a better way to handle this?
Should we plan on not using our deep strike and just deploy our units behind our gun lines to then counter charge? Should we risk the bad deep strike and potentially have a unit not be able to do anything most of the game?
What say you?
