Guest Posted August 14, 2015 Report Share Posted August 14, 2015 Stronghold assault's skyshield landing pad has this upgrade, "ready for take off" which allows a flyer to start on the table in hover mode for turn 1, provided they start on the skyshield. Anyone actually tried it? Viable? Got a "replacement" storm raven and am kicking around the idea of testing it with the hover deployment. 75pts for the skyshield and another 5pts for the upgrade, but that's a whole extra turn of shooting, plus it would allow a turn 1 assault out of the SR, should the enemy get close enough. Skyshield provides a 4++ to shooting, so the SR isn't exactly crippled by starting on the table, plus by not entering from reserves, you functionally nerf the enemy interceptor weapons. Thoughts?
