Although the Intercept skill on the Swooping Hawk squad is only worth 5 points, is it worth taking at all? I don't really intend to go attacking tanks with it, so I am not sure it would be useful in any situation.
Anyone else have any opinions?
If your list is lacking in anti-tank, then it could be very worth while. If your list is not, then not so much.
Everything I have told you, even this, is a lie.
In 4th, hells yeah! Skimmers of any kind needed a 6+ to hit if they moved more than 6". My Tau opponents HATED my Hawks with the Intercept rule! But in 5th, skimmers need to move at faster speeds in order for them to gain that advantage. Seriously, even in 4th, how many skimmers did you see move faster than 12" - except our guys, of course. So, yeah, you could drop the Intercept and still be ok.
