    Icon Mechanics

    I am just starting Chaos Daeamons and I have a question about the mechanics of Chaos Icons. There are two ways I can think of that it might function:

    1. Measure 6" and put the unit anywhere within that distance.
    2. Place the unit, then measure. If the unit is within 6", you don't roll for scatter, but if it is not, you must roll for scatter.

    Which of these is correct, or are neither of these correct?

    Also, does the entire unit have to be within 6", just the center model, or any model?

    you take the center model (since to deep strike you take one model, roll scatter then after landing place models in circles around the center) and place it down within 6" of the Icon then you don't roll scatter and start placing circles around the center

    You're permitted to measure this one.

    Having played with icons in CSM as well as teleport homers and the like I can answer this one pretty well....

    In a strict game of 40k, when you deepstike a model you first place it on the table where you would like it to land... Then once in place you measure distance from any icon, homer, ect... If you are within the 6" zone you stay put and if you are out of the zone you roll deviation....

    That said in friendly games I would let my opponent measure first.

    The question essantially is can you do any measuring when you go to deep strike

    The way I read it, yes, you are allowed to measure out those 6 inches BEFORE placing any models for the deep striking squad, in order to assure they are within the distance to not scatter.
