    flying, stupidity & trees, oh my!

    hey guys!

    I love putting my tzeentch sorcerers on discs of tzeentch for the 20" fly move, typically I'll place them near woods as cover from sniper casters however I have an item on them that if used causes stupidity, so here's the question!

    if I role stupid on a flying mount and end up shuffling forward into woods, what is the result?

    I know I can always just end my movement facing away from the woods to fix this issue, but hypothetically what would happen anyways?

    If you're thinking about the fact that you can not fly and land in a wood then there really is no problem at all. If you fail your stupidity test then the creature doesn't fly, just moves 3'' on the ground.

    Not necessarily 3" but half it's movement rate (which might differ for the different flyers) but otherwise herman1004 is spot on
    It ain't easy bein' green... :-)

    What he is referring to, i think, is that flyers that are caused to flee and would end their flee movement in a wood, are automatically destroyed.

    If your Sorcerer has a normal move still available, then he wont die (unless you want him to ) and you use his normal movement to determine flee distance. However, i THINK, if he ONLY has the flying move that you gave him available, then he dies.

    Edit: Wait! ignore me.. maybe.. Ive confused Stupid with Fleeing. This may need some looking into...

    yeah, just saw disc's have a movement of 1" so chances are his stupidity won't ever cause him to enter woods and even if he did then it's land movement and he won't be effected, thanks guys

    Getting him out of the woods, however, will be a oryal pain....

    All they could do is tree sing the woods in front of him to where it's basically touching his base and hope he fails his stupidity test... WE can't actually tree sing woods to engulf a unit (friend or foe).
