people talk about using the ctm to move into open, firing, then behind terrain and repeat.
my question is how will terrain help?
Most terrain is size two, tanks and vehicles being size three the terrain aside from large trees wont block los. At most it will provide "concealment" but eldar vehicles are skimmers so that is pointless if you are moving.
I was wondering if all you people are wrong and cheating, which i hope isn't true, or if you guys are using more large trees than i am. Or the most likly possibility being that i miss understood something.
if i am wrong than the ctm is a much better buy than i thought and i would like clarity on this
When you combine Speed and Power you get Lightning.
We have a decent selection of "buildings" (these look remarkably like GW boxes turned upside down). There is maybe one or two of these in most games. There are large trees, like you mentioned. There are other random bits of terrain that can block LOS, like walls and stuff like that. Usually there is at least one thing that is size 3 and that is all you need. Large hills occasionally suffice as well.

I think what's up here is that everyone elses uses more Size 3 terrain than you do.
Buildings, woods, ruins we all count as size 3, which means vehicles can hide behind them, and the CTM suddenly becomes more useful. Even though I don't actually use any, 30 points quickly gets expensive when you have 10 vehicles in your army.
And tarzen is correct on the rules here, skimmers cannot "fly high" or "fly low", or anything like that: they are as high as the model used to represent them.

personally i use a variety of terrain and not many ctm's.
ctm's are nice but the fact of not everyone using abandoned builds and large structures on the playing table will hinder.
instead of ctm's, just make sure you move the full 12" every turn to get the "hull down" effect.
