Ok, I got splatted into space-puppy sushi when my ven dread drop podded inside 4d6 of an inquisitor (lord?) in my opponents army. What exactly was it I got slammed by? Since it was a RTT I didnt have time for getting the details (and know the player to be an honest player)
I don't have a Witch Hunter or Daemon Hunter codex, but the Auspex in Codex: Space Marines gives the model a free shot at infiltrators. It doesn't work on deepstrikers, though. . .
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

it's pretty simple, and nasty when it comes to it, he had a Mystic in his =][= retinue, the Mystic allows the unit a free shot at any daemon or deepstrike unit before they can move (if within 4D6") not bad for a measly 6pts
AND, if he has more than 1 Mystic in his retinue, he can hand over the free shot to any other unit within 12" of the =][=, so if you're going to use them, make sure you have some very heavy firepower near by and you can blow anything out of the air and keep the battlefield in your favor

The priest(i think) grants the inquisitor a free shot at any deepstriking demons within 4d6 inches. so methinks that your friend is wrong...... unless im wrong........ which certainly can happen. :wacko: hope this helps. Good Luck.
*EDIT* BLAARRGGHHHH!!!! Defeated! Scott beat me to the punch! and i was wrong!!!! Blasts!
Note that the mystic lets you shoot once at the drop pod or the dread but not both. You get one shot at each summoned demon unit/deepstriking unit within 4d6, even if they all come in in the same turn. I always equip my shotty Inqs with auspex and give them a mystic.
