What I saw that is REALLY cheeky is Stealthsuits, Ghostkeels and Shadowsun (perhaps others?) have the infiltrate special rule. It says you can deploy them during deployment and anywhere on the battlefield that is not within your opponent's deployment zone and is more than 12'' from any enemy unit. Follow with me here.
This means that if you go first for deployment you can set up either of those units right on the cusp of your opponent's deployment zone. They haven't set any units down yet, and you're not in their deployment zone. You could do this to "sour" deployment areas, especially if you get to go first (you go first if you deploy everything before your opponent).
Of course the risk to your troops is great - if your opponent seizes, or if you do not go first they are as good as dead. Still, if you can pull it off you can get some nice alpha shooting going. Heck, you could even use it as a delaying tactic. Perhaps shoot up a unit, then charge them since you're right in their face. Get a round of combat with them, then fly out of combat to get another turn of shooting, etc.
Either way, sounds fun.
