any deathing tactics. especially against orks.
Your best bet as Deathwing against Orks, is, not surprisingly, a refused flank tactic. The bread and butter of Deathwing strategies.
Are you player pure DW, or are you player DW mixed with bikes?
Either way, choose to go second, and deploy last. Hopefully the ork player deploys all along the board in a line.
If you are playing Death/Raven, sit the bikes near the table edge that has the least stuff on it, or at least the stuff that you can wipe out the fastest.
Before the start, turbo boost Scout Move up his flank and sit pretty just outside 12 inches.
Turn 1, Deathwing Assault his ass. Drop your termies down at that magical
12" mark away from his boyz. Open fire. Kill as much as you can.
In theory, you should have most of that side of the board cleared. Barring vehicles and fast attack, he is going to have to spend the rest of the game walking towards you. All the while, you are backing up and unloading stormbolter and AC fire at him. If you play it right, he will never reach you.
If you are playing pure Deathwing...
When you get to deploy, smack down all your termies on one side of the board. Spend the rest of the game shooting down his boyz as they charge towards. Just keep backing up. Deathwing must be played as a mobile firing line against orks and other melee armies. You cannot allow the opponent to reach your lines.
Focus fire. Wipe squads out.
