True. I forgot Flyers can outflank.

Only if you field a RoW which allows them to or if they have some kind of special rule.

So... no Caestus Assault Ram for SickSix?

Flyers come on as normal from your own table edge as reserves, unless they have rules which let them do otherwise (if you wanted).

So a Caestus is entirely legal once you don't deploy it via deepstrike.

I have always assumed the covenant of fire doesn't stop you putting down units that can deep strike, but don't have to.

Otherwise the list of things you can't take is massive:

A half dozen flyers
Land speeders
Javelins
Jetbikes
Assault marines
Etc

If it were to restrict all the above, it'd be a boring RoW.

It is such a good RoW that I quite want to take it, but at the same time it's very restrictive and forces you to go for elites over fast or heavy, which is fine, but seems to lead to fairly predictable lists.

Don't all Flyers enter via deep strike?

Some flyers are allowed to deep strike, but their usual deployment is out of reserves.

Is anyone running Assault Marines in A COF List? And if so how do you find them?

I was thinking of adding 10 with Melta bombs & possibly some Inferno pistols or hand flamers to add another dimension to the squad.

Just as an alternative AT threat for when Armoured Ceramite is prevalent that isn't from our already taxed FA & HS slots. Particularly in say 2/2.5k games.

It's pretty atypical to what Sallies usually field (given their legion rules etc), but not a bad shout I bet. 

 

Probably fairly decent at intercepting armour going for your own tanks.
