ok, i was just wondering on the entrance for abaddon in the chaos codex, it says that his sword causes penetrating hits on a vehicle if it hits. but if he hits a skimmer that moved more than 6", is it glancing or penetrating? and what about ap1 weapons?
I'm actually not in my sixties. For some obscure reason, my age is set 50 years older than what it actually is.
Also known as Jianaran
Judging by what it says about ap1 weapons on page 66 of the rulebook a skimmer moving fast still reduces ap1 hits to glancing. As for drach'nyen i'd apply the same philosophy as ap1 weapons for his attacks(simply treat his sword as an ap1 CCW) thus they would be reduced to glancing...but its a matter of speculation on that part.

The rule quote you're looking for is here http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4...r_faq_v4-0.pdf
where it says that ALL HITS are reduced to glancing, no matter the source if the skimmer moved more than 6" in the prior turn.
16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
1,500+ of Legion (just started)
You dont even need the PDF to be that clear on it:
Abadon hits the vehicle, he causes a penetrating hit, the effect of fast speeder moving at speed does not prohibit penetrating hits, it clearly converts the penetrating hits to glancing ones, presto - abadons pen hit goes glancing
Everything you have been told is a lie!
