Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was looking at the Eldar Phoenix at Forge World and I was wondering how these actually work.
Can they get shot down? Are they worth their points?
Does anyone actively use a Eldar craft in their point list? Also can you use it in non-apocalypse battles in a 2000 point list?
In friendly games, anything goes.
As to how fliers work, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post how they work here, but needless to say they're hard to shoot down without anti-aircraft (though not impossible)
They wouldn't be -that- useful in a regular game. One lucky shot and they go kablooie
The rules for flyers are in Apocalypse and Imperial Armor.
Flyers are generally very high cost and they don't do much aside from acting as a heavy weapons platform. Nevertheless, they're very hard to hit and even harder to shoot down.
I don't have any, but I'd use them just because they're cool.
