I had a question I haven't seen an answer for:
If you don't get first turn and someone shoots at your falcon/vyper whatever, do you not get the moving over 6" glance rule?
I mean you wouldn't come into battle moving still. Maybe there is a rule somewhere on this, if someone can direct me to it that would be great.
All units are stationary at the start of the game.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Thanks Rork but can you tell me where in the book I can find that rule?
But that is not the point, the point is: can you find a rule that says your skimmers are moving over 6" before the first turn? No, you can't. If you have not had a turn yet, it follows that your skimmers have not moved yet. Therefore, you can suffer penetrating hits.
Tips to avoid this problem: hide your skimmers behind terrain; remember they do get the Obscured Target benefit if they are partially hidden behind terrain. Give them holo-fields to reduce the damage. Use loaded dice for the first turn roll. :tongue:

I just thought there was a rule somewhere.
In the games I play we have relatively no terrain...maybe 2 structures and a small woods. If u position stuff correctly in the start of the game you can see everything if you put support weapons on ethier end of the table.
It's cool I have been playing right, I just was just hoping I was playing wrong .. but im not poor skimmers.
Might want to get more terrain? 2 buildings and a wood is not the 25% that should at least be placed on a table.
you really need more terrain. who are you playing against and which of you gets to set up terrain?
not having enough tends to lead to things like not being able to keep your skimmers and transports safe...
I always like to play whit lots of terrain, around 40%, but 25% can be fun to.
Wood is rather easy to make. Just take a piece of cardboard, wrap some tape around the edges to make it smooth, stick a couple of trees on it and paint and flock it. Repeat!
Yeah a thrird party guy who doesn't have an army yet sets the game terrain up. The only reason why we use fewer building is the games seem to take along time if we don't.
Yeah I think it hurts my army in the long run, terrian really helps eldar esspecially my spiders.
If you guys have any terrain set ups you have pics of I would love to see them. But all I have seen online is about the same thing we use..around 2 bulidings and a woods or 2.
The more terrain the merrier, its one thing you can't have to much of...well that and starcannons >.<
