PostSubject: Flyers and cover   Sun Jan 31 2016, 19:40

Played against a tyranid player a few weeks ago.   He flew his flyrants into a ruin.  

Per the rule for swooping on page 69  "...a flying monstrous creature does not take dangerous terrain tests..."

Vehicle flyers have similar wording on page 84

He claims that he would still get the benefit of the cover save.    I can't seem to find anything in the rules to contradict what he said.   We both agreed that it didn't make sense, but neither of us could find anything RAW to say he didn't get the save.

Any help here?

He is also a MC. MCs get cover save if a toe in in terrain. It is a stupid rule, but that's how it is.

Even if he's flying? For flying I'd use true line of sight...

Sensible idea so obviously it's not a GW rule! Very Happy

Don't all units get a cover save even if a toe in terrain? (i.e. our flyers would too)

No. Flyers (vehicles) don't. And normal vehicles have to be obscured to gain a cover save
