    I was reading through the SM and SW dex's and I came accross something.

    In both dex's it says "models wearing terminator armor can only take weapons and wargear marked with a (instert either t or a * here).

    well...bionics doesnt have a * in the space marine dex or a T in the space wolf dex. Can terminators in fact take bionics, or cant they?

    If so, then my usual command squad are a little...illegal.

    Termies can't take bionics as wargear...they already have a 5+ invulnerable save...so it really doesn't do you any good anyway, but if your termies have bionics on em just for looks that should be fine.

    WAAAGH!

    Well this is easily answered to why that is. Bionics don't give you an invulnerable save what they do is that if your guy is killed then roll 1d6 if it is a 6 then your guy gets back up with one wound. Not sure if that is it exactly but it is something like that. This is after your guy is all the way killed so only on your last wound. A guy with 3 wounds only uses it if he is killed all the way not just losing one wound. And remember he comes back with only one wound so if he had 3 then he only has 1 when he comes back. The SM codex does a horrible job explaining it but that is my take on it.

    The DH codex explains it pretty clearly. Just hope for a 6.
