    So you can't teleport the Sarus Astrolith Bearer and then plant his banner, nor you can't plant and then teleport him... am i right?

    IMO yes, you CAN teleport the the Astrolith Bearer and then plant the banner.
    The teleport of Lords of Space and Time activates in the Hero Phase, so you teleport the Bearer. Unless you don't roll a 6 ", it counts as its move in its next movement phase
    in the same hero phase the ScarVet plants the Astrolith... the limitation is that he cannot move in the following movement phase.

    The Bearer doesn't move in the movement phase: it has been moved in the hero phase, a thing that "counts as move", to avoid further movements

    Well, by fluff it makes sense. When you plant the banner you cannot move, and you are planting it after the teleport.
    The teleport count as move, so it would negate abilities as the one of the Irondrakes, that can shoot twice if they didn't move in the previous phase... but you are planting the astrolith before the movement phase.

    I'd also say it works. Planting the banner prevents him from moving in that round starting at that exact moment.
    Normally that means he cannot move at all because planting the banner happens in the phase before he can decide to move.
    In this case the movement happens before he can decide to put plant his banner, so he is moved, plants his banner, and regardless of the teleport maybe allowing him to move later, he cannot do it because he planted his banner.

    Pretty sure it works. The Astrolith Bearer cannot move in the movement phase after teleporting (usually) and also cannot move after planting the banner, so doubly unable to move. Which is just fine. May as well give that model the Prism as it is definitely not moving in the movement phase anyway.

    Yeah the prism is perfect for support units like him.

    Just re-read the rules and I'd agree with you as long as you teleport before planting it!

    I, too, agree with that. And I think that it's a good way to put your astrolith where it could be used perfectly.
