Can you shoot under a Monolith because it acts like a skimmer? At one point, most of the time Tau did this, you could shoot under a skimmer. IN the rule book it talks about a skimmer not landing but on the same page not staying up in the air. As you can imagine it would be of great help tactically to know if you could have a armor 14 floating pyramid to keep enemies off you while not stopping you from flaying the weak flesh of you foes.
As always best of luck in your conquest of the living and any/all feed back would be welcomed!
That is true but if the monolith is on a flying base you can see under it or is LoS from the figs head only not the whole model?
Ya, it Is tricky. The enemy seeing me isn't really a problem, the problem is getting assaulted, losing and having an I of one.
Thanks Lost Nemesis
It's got a flying base in the codex.
The Monolith does not come with a flying base in the box. At least mine didn't. In this case, because the game now uses true LOS, anything blocking view ... well, blocks view.
If you have mounted your Monolith in a flying base yourself, then your models can fire underneath it if they can see underneath it. As long as 50% of the target model(s) can be seen, you can fire - but the target would get a cover save if they are obscured.
In the 2nd scenario, the opponent would very likely not be able to counter-assault you from under the Monolith, simply because the models would not fit. There isn't enough room, so they would have to run around the Monolith.
This is, effectively, the "Fish of Fury" Tau tactic. If your Monolith has a flying base, then Necrons can perform it very well indeed as they can repeatedly teleport through the Portal (which, if you're smart, is always angled away from the enemy).
