Do flying monstrous creatures such as greater demons, winged demon princes, winged HTs, Harpies, etc all have to take dangerous terrain tests? I'm assuming they do, but just want to make sure.
They do if they're moving as jump infantry in the movement phase into difficult or dangerous terrain.

Monstrous Creatures without wings are still subject to Dangerous Terrain Tests, and even Monstrous Creatures with Wings are still subject to the same Jump Pack Rules as normal troops, i.e. dangerous terrain tests when landing (or jumping off from) difficult terrain.
Thanks for the replies, gents! It's much appreciated!
It's idiotic, because how often do you see birds and other creatures with naturally occurring wings fly into tree branches and protruding rocks?

Mr_Wayne: "Some people believe that the World Eaters do not field any ranged weaponry. Those people often die at a distance."
they fly into windows often enough. theyre also not carrying a msssive axe and wearing armour (i hope)
Not to mention that birds tend not to be flying around in a warzone with bullets and hellspawn and gretchin flying about everywhere. You could say that sure, the massive winged thing landed and twisted his ankle, or you could say in midflight he got something in the eye (say, a bolter), and then took a futuresteel beam beam to the face.
It's really up to you to think of a reason why your character got fragged when landing in dangerous terrain, not GW's.
...though if you really do need reasons... roll a d6 and consult the following chart!
1) Twisted Ankle
The model landed the wrong way and is removed as a casualty while he sobs like a baby from his hurt foot. Expect much ridiculment!
Intent on landing carefully in the midst of the nasty terrain below, the model failed to notice that he's not the only thing flying around, and gets pinged by a wayward transport.
3) Something in the eye
Whether it's a bolter sticking in the optics, or the visor is smeared with what used to be a gretchin, the model's vision is too impaired to realise that there's a wall in the way.
4) Looks safe enough
The model lands safely on a branch/gargoyle/rooftop and strikes a heroic pose. Sadly for the model, the branch/gargoyle/rooftop does not meet safety standards, sending him tumbling to his doom.
5) Hey, that looks like a...
Normally, your normal infantryman can spot obvious mines, booby traps, or leaf covered pits as he walks slowly through rough terrain. Jumpinfantrymen falling from a great height, however, probably wouldn't spot that big obvious trap until...
6) Pardon me
The model lands safely. Sadly, someone or something else lands at the exact same spot a moment later.
