View Full Version : Can flyers move 20” and still shoot?

Since flyers don’t have a move stat that is doubled when they march, can they fly 20” and still shoot? E.g Wood Elf warhawk riders or a lord on a Dragon.

Also does anyone know if a Spawn Tzeentch or a Dragons breath weapon counts as magical.

Flying, regardless of distance, does not deny the model the opportunity to shoot.

By default models can shoot with a -1 to hit modifier if they moved in the movement phase.

Circumstances may prevent shooting, such as marching, reform etc. Flying in itself does not prevent shooting.

A Dragons breath doesn't count as magical, I'm sure. The sole exception to this might be the special once in a game breath of the chaos dragon special character.

Firewyrms "breathe magical flames", according to beastiry.

Frequently fly my Terradons 20" & let them throw their Javelins.

Flyers just can't fail a charge, move their 20", and shoot.

I don't think that anything can shoot after failing a charge.

Er...what about the Empire Steam Tank??? I think I remember reading that it can even shoot while in melee.
