Hi!

I'm having some trouble concerning bladevane attacks. CAN you bladevane a swooping flying monstrous creatures. Rules say that you can bladevane an unengaged non-vehicle unit, which a flying monstrous creature is neither. But on the other hand, when swooping, a flying monstrous creature can only be hit by snap-shots, which bladevane attack is uncapable of. So.. My question is.. Can you do it?

Check out the main rulebook FAQ.

Quote :
Q: How do maelstroms, novas and beams – or indeed any
weapon that doesn’t need to roll To Hit or hits automatically –
interact with Zooming Flyers and Swooping Flying Monstrous
Creatures ? (p13)
A: Only Snap Shots can hit Zooming Flyers and Swooping
Flying Monstrous Creatures. Therefore, any attacks that use
blast markers, templates, create a line of/area of effect or
otherwise don’t roll to hit cannot target them. This includes
weapons such as the Necron Doom Scythe’s death ray or the
Deathstrike missile of the Imperial Guard, and psychic
powers that follow the rule for maelstroms, beams, and novas.
So no you can't bladevane flying monstrous creatures.

That's because Vector strike was specifically ruled in the FAQ to be able to target flying opponents.

After doing some digging I have to check.. Is it legal in game terms to perform a vector strike with reavers against a flying monstrous creature? I couldn't find any help from the FAQs and this clearly bothers me now.. :/

Reavers don't have vector strike. If they did it would be legal to use against a flying MC as per the BRB FAQ

A: Yes.
