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.

Achaylus72 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+.

Barnster 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

That's right; I think it is pretty cool too. I can't think of any other Rapid Fire Sniper in 40k. Is there an other?

Immortals are pretty nasty, Deathmarks are cool looking but I think Elite slots can be better spent on Stalkers.

Immortals are slightly more durable versions of warriors their gauss gun has a higer ap than warrior flayers as well personally i don't think the upgrade is worth the fairly substantial price hype
It's extremely worth it, especially since you can swap their blasters for tesla weaponry instead which looks to be pretty good.

The decent necron units seem to be wave 2 eg stalkers and scythes
Yeah, I think we're gonna see some nasty armies with Stalkers and Scarabs... just wait and see!
