I have a friend who regularly plays Tau. He sticks all his troops capable of doing so into Devilfish, then pops them out, rounds the Devilfish into a lovely round shield, and proceeds to fire mercilessly at everyone in sight, as they may be shot under. Furthermore, he moves his models such that they are adjacent to the vehicles.
Given the okay to shoot under skimmers, I would assume that it would be possible to move under them too. It would seem reasonable to me that if you don't end the turn under a skimmer, movement underneath it would be reasonable. However, if you are playing a dedicated assault game, and the enemy is so close to the vehicle that you cannot assault the units without ending the turn under a vehicle, what do you do?
What he's doing is legal, just utilising the rule that says you can't be within 1'" of an enemy unless you assault.Originally Posted by Johenius
This tactic he's using however is very stupid unless his opponent has no anti tank weapons. You simply immobilise or destroy the skimmer (which has convienently exposed side and rear armour) so it no longer floats and crashes to the ground, hence blocking his LOS and forcing him to waste a turn moving. Problem solved. :closedeyes:
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
Although skimmers do not block LoS, they still occupy the area they are in. So although you can see past it, you cannot move through it.
You don't generally want to be walking under a tank - the driver might stall it at the wrong moment .
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
