    Flying Armor save??

    Someone told me flying grants an additional +1 to armor saves. Is this true?

    The said the PK was a 2+ armor save.

    To my understanding its only a 3+ (Mounted +1, Shield +1, Heavy Armor +2) am I missing anything for this. I am fairly confident that their is no bonus on armor for flying.

    Insight appreciated in advance.

    I think you have it right. Maybe the guy mixed the save up with flying cav being skirmishers and getting -1 to shoot at...

    There's nothing in the rulebook to suggest this, however I don't have the Bret army book so there might be something in there to add.

    They were probably confused that in 8th edition, models get +1 armor save for being mounted on monsters, which mostly include flying creatures like dragons, manticores or hippogryphs.

    Pegasus Knights have a 3+ save because they aren't barded.
