How do you redeploy the unit.
This week i played with a large squad of 32 gaunts that had WoN. I placed them in a huge line touching base to base so it was about a 32" line of gaunts on my deployment zone. Also all of my synapse was dead at this time.
Do you place them on the board and then test for instinctive behavior or do you test and then place them on the board?
Or what if you don't want to move and just want to shoot. do you place them on the board and just shoot or would you need a test first to even move then on the board.
If you test for them and they fail do they immediately die because they are on the board edge?
Im not totally sure the exact ruling on this, but to my knowlege, you place on the board an act noramlly for that turn only. Then you test for behavior. Otherwise you would have to pass the test, to even come on the board, where you will probably fail afterwards and run off. Ill check the FAQ to make sure.
Edit, checked FAQ and got nothing, however id be inclinded to think you may as well bring them on, becuase unless your opponent is really close, your just going to run away next turn anyway. perhaps you may want to also post this on the rules forum?

Your friendly neighbourhood gargantuan creature
Another question regarding WoN, How many of my gaunts have to die before i can place them back on the table edge?
I know this is a noobie question, but the codex im reading is German so its a little hard to understand
WON gaunts come in as normal for the turn they enter play as if they've just been in synapse. At the start of the following turn they must pass the test. But at no point would they count as being able to capture an objective unless a synapse creature is in range
Is it true? I was under the impression that you could capture objectives with them just fine. Where does it say that they need to be under synapse to control objectives?
You can capture if you continously pass ld tests, but i'm too realistic to consider that an option lol (sorry should have mentioned that as well)... If they fail the test they fall back (units falling back can not capture), or if you opt to lurk with them then they can not capture points either (2nd bullet point on instinctive behaviour)
Do remember that we DON'T fall back towards our table edge under normal circumstances. As long as we have synapse on the board we fall back toward the nearest synapse creature. So having them die and come back on early like turn 3 is not a bad thing.
Thanks for clearing that up, Anarkhia. It works then as I suspected... they can capture on a successful Ld check or in the turn they come into play
