I recall reading somewhere that skimmers cannot enter terrain, only hover over it... but for the life of me, I cannot find where. Does anyone have a page reference for this?
Also - if this is the case, how is line of sight handled when it comes to area terrain? Lets say a skimmer has part of the hull resting over the back of a size 3 piece of area terrain when it stops its movement. Is the entire vehicle then considered hovering over the terrain? Additionally, what about line of sight to and from the skimmer? The BGB states you can see 6" into and out of terrain, but does this apply to the skimmer if the terrain piece is more than 6" wide? Or are you seeing and being seen over it?
Any page references in the BGB that clarify this will be much appreciated!
i thought that skimmers could either go in or hover over terrain, but not both...
if hovering then if its in any area terrain, its as though that terrain doesnt exist when targeting TO and FROM the skimmer, so your enemy can shoot the skimmer.
so, obviously the 6" rule doesnt count there... as for the hull resting on the terrain, its up to you if its in the terrain or not...
this is on pg 61 of the BGB, under skimmers, but it says nothing about going into the terrain, so maybe i was wrong... only hovering
The short answer to where to find it is in the quick reference. Otherwise I can show you about 15 ways they differ from normal vehicles in movement and never say that they may enter terrain, just choose to hover over it.
Skimmers over any bit of the area terrain will count it as ignored. so can be seen and see all others in normal LOS. Meaning the only way to hide a skimmer is to park it BEHIND level 3 AREA terrain, or behind a large enough piece of normal terrain to block LOS.
You can do a search through my posts, as I've answered this time and a again, particularly on the quiz a newbie thread. Has multiple examples too.
