    Terminators. Teleport Homer vs. Locater Beacon

    So during a game the other day, the guys and I got into a bit of a tuss over this.

    I had a squad of Terminators deep-strike within 6 inches of a locator beacon in order to avoid scatter, yet one of my friends insisted that Terminators could only avoid deep-strike scatter by landing within 6 inches of a teleport homer.

    His justification was that the teleport homer is a specific piece of wargear that specifically refers to Terminators and deep-striking. I brought up the fact that because the locator beacon is non-specific about the means of deep-striking (teleportation vs dropships etc) it allows me to teleport terminators without scatter.

    What's your opinion?

    THe locator beacon allows for any kind of deepstriking unit to not have to scatter, so yes the terminators can deep strike without scattering.

    pg 67 Codex Space Marines:
    Locator beacon is described as, "a signaling package containing a teleport homer, broad-spectrum communicators and geo-positional tracking."

    As it contains a teleport homer, your Terminators are able to teleport using it.
