ATTN MATTHIAS? Flyer Shooting at Flyer

Postby Lord Krungharr » Wed Apr 11, 2012 7:10 pm

Does a flyer shooting at another flyer reduce its shooting range by 12"?

In the Apoc rules, it says that when anything shoots at a flyer its range is reduced by 12".

Also, when a non-flyer shoots at a flyer it measures to the base of the flyer, so that's clear. But when a flyer shoots at a flyer we shoot at whichever armor side we're facing, but do we measure to the hull or measure to the base in that case?

Yep, all weapons' is pretty all-inclusive.

Also, you do not measure to the base. You always measure to the hull/body/fuselage for all things with flyers, like normal vehicles.

Yeah, that's what I figured for the range.

I re-read the INITFAQ for the Apocalypse units and rules and apparently we always measure to the base when shooting at Flyers (I think I skipped this page or something):


APOC.94D.01 – Q: When firing at a Flyer do you
measure range to the base or up to the actual
model?
A: As the height of flying stands varies dramatically, when
not in ‘Hover Mode’ measure all ranges to and from Flyers
using their base instead of their hull [rules change]

Ah, missed that one. It's nice when they label it as a rules change so you know what it's "supposed" to be :D.

Maybe when they fly so fast the speed morphs their shape into an egg, like that movie with that kid who got abducted by the silver alien ship who meets Sarah Jessica Parker. What was that called? I can't remember.
