playing on a map we decide to have a ravine going through half of the board
me tau, him 'nids.
he said that the tau skimmers couldn't cross the ravine because they would fall to the bottom....
now i thought tau tech would allow them to say fly like a helicopter and that it didn't matter how low the ground was.
now then that may lead to some wierd things(i move my skimmer 4 ft into the air and it sits there hahah death from above) that may be a 'bit' over powering.
so any thoughts?
Tell him to read the rulebook (page 61). Skimmers may ignore terrain entirely.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

Is a building considered terrain? I had similar thoughts only I was thinking about a particular building piece that I use. Send something that hovers up to the top of it and at the very least you have no chance of being close combat assaulted. Still worry about being fired upon, but no fear from power fists, melta bombs, etc.
a building is avoided by hovering over it, but you can be targeted as though the terrain you are over wasnt there. You can also target others the same way.
but no, i dont think you can be assaulted unless jet-packed troops make it up there...
