My issue with Deathmarks are they are far too situational

Against nids with trygons and mawlocs and daemons eg DPs greater daemons they are good (Read excellent!!), otherwise they start to be considerably more mehh. Few eldar players take wraithlords most will take falcons and FPrisms and they lack any ap punch

Deathmarks will likey be seen in a lot of tourni style armies as an insurance unit though due to their low cost for their potential against certain builds

In fact the Spear of Russ is not in fact a spear at all, it's just the name given to the occurrence when someone accidently picks Russ up and throws him at someone.

The problem with that rule is that it makes every deathmark unit you have wound one unit on 2's, though from reading this it seems that taking one unit is probably the best thing to do anyway.

Sometimes i wonder 'Why is that frisbee getting bigger?', and then it hits me.

They're Elites and the Elite slot is pretty cramped for 'crons.

NECRON DEATHMARKS
The Deathmarks are shadowy assassins who excel at turning up just when your opponent wished that they hadn't. Deathmarks are at their best when deploying from Deep Strike, and unlike other units in the game can do in your opponent's turn - they just have to wait for an enemy unit to arrive from reserve! Better still, as soon as the Deathmarks arrive, you can have them mark a single enemy unit you don't like the look of. From that point on, any Deathmark unit that shoots at that unit (or attacks it in close combat) will Wound on a roll of 2+.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

Yes, but you get to pick a target for every squad you deploy. So if you have two squads you get to pick two targets and they both get 2+ on the targets.
