A very useful post, Although I tend to just work out how my army will set up when I'm building it and only make minor tweaks in response to scenery and opponent but then I play Empire infantry horde/ ogre gunline so neither army really worries to much on opponents play. My other army is Chaos dwarf and to be honest after a few good earthshaker round I have plenty of time to redeploy.
I might try and build my next army differently just to try something new.

impressed with your post - as a vet player its nice to see posts that explain the core of the fantasy game, the tactics of deployment and movement, its what stands fantasy apart from 40k. unfortunatly many people come into fantasy from 40k and think that a tooled up vampire is about the closest thing to a space marine commande they can get so run with it.

Movement and deployment win wars - thats why i play tombkings

Great tactica. I would add that observing how far your opponent places their units at the beginning is important as well. When the tape measure comes out it useful in determining how far their troops actually are from yours. Experienced players may not have to do this but I find it useful still. It is good to know if those skeletons are in charge range at the beginning of turn 1 or not.

I don't know if this is mentioned elsewhere, but to add to rpthomps, it is also useful to pay attention to how far in and how far an opponent places his troops into the board, and about how far from each side, for the purposes of guess range war machines. A little of Pythagorean Theorem is beautiful if you are attentive and decent at math.

That is the one that says that for a right triangle, a^2+b^2=c^2 where c is the length of the hypotenuse and a and b are the lengths of the other sides.
