Just a quick question that has come up when reading the 5th ed. rulebook: Do models now count for the "vertical impassible terrain" the Flesh Hook rules refer to.
In short, do Flesh Hooks allow you to move OVER other models by making a difficult terrain check?
Same question goes for Vehicles.
Anyone able to help me out on this?
You cannot occupy the same spot as another model, and since your move would require you to at some point, no you cannot. Vertically impassable is irrelevant.
Jump pack / etc. troops are allowed to pass OVER the same spot as another model so long as they do not land on them, but flesh hook fexes and such don't have the ability to do that, so they'd have to at least for some point of time occupy the same place and that's a no-no. They're also NOT vertically impassable terrain anyway (so it's moot), they're other models.
A side question revolves around buildings with walls and going up levels ... since the Fexes don't treat the walls as vertically impassable, can they simply treat the wall up as difficult terrain, and therefore move however far they want as long as they roll enough horizontal distance on their difficult roll?

No, other models aren't vertically impassable, you simply can't go within 1 inch of them. Thus flesh hooks don't let you jump over other models, as cool as that would be.

more witty remarks to come.
hmm, thought it wouldn't work, but it would be cool in apoc battle where you could walk over an allied tanks or something, instead of going around it
But thanks anyways!
