Fellow battle brothers (and sisters),
A friend and I have recently started playing 40k, and as such it seems like we come up with a host of new rules questions everytime we play the game. A few that came up during our recent game were related to the Auspex Scan strategem. Our questions are as follows:
1. If multiple units are being deployed from tactical reserves in the same turn, can the player using Auspex Scan pick which target to shoot at as long as all of them are within the range specified in the stratagem (12 inches I think)?
For example, in our game my opponent deployed a squad of raptors, a sorcerer in terminator armor, and a demon prince with with wings (we realized later that he couldn't deploy his prince this way, but that's another matter). His contention was that I had to shoot the raptors, since they were deployed first, but to me the wording of the strategem doesn't support this line of thinking? It seems like I should be able to shoot any of the 3 if all are deployed within 12 inches?
2. My second question is in relation to drop pods: If he deploys a unit in a drop pod, my understanding is that Auspex Scan can only be used to fire at the drop pod, not at the unit inside after it disembarks? Is this correct?
3. My last questions doesn't deal with Auspex Scan, but is related to the units disembarking from the pod. If a unit of Grav Devestators disembarks from the pod, do their grav cannons get -1 to hit from moving? We weren't sure about this.
Thanks in advance for any insight, we both appreciate it!
