hi

im just wondering if skirmishers are affected by "no marching wihtin 8" " rule?
and vice versa.


they weren't affected in 5th ed.

flyers and dwarves are the only exceptions to the march blocking rules that I know of. skirmishers are march blocked and march block others.

Flyers aren't an exception either.

Indeed,flyers can be march blocked like everything else.

Indeed, though they may always make their normal Fly move of 20" (never doubling it) regardless of the enemy's proximity.

However, flyers rarely resort to marching (since it does not double aerial movement rate), unless forced to move on ground.

Indeed, that is because it is usually faster to fly than it is to walk.

Indeed, since aerial motion tends to be more efficient than ground-based on a creature suitably evolved for flight, showing a surprising amount of realism for a GW game.

Indeed, but still mostly inaccurate when you consider that not everything that has wings flies at the same rate or lands every few minutes.

Indeed! Eagles may soar, but weasels are not sucked into jet engines.

Ah, the old issue about European versus African swallows, and the effects of coconuts on the movement.

However, I think there is one flying unit that only moves 15" per turn - the disc of Tzeench.

Indeed, but that discythingy is not so much flying as it is hovering menacingly forward.

Indeed, Bat Swarms fly 10"!

I have a feeling that the designer responsible for that had never seen a real bat flying around - they look quite fast to me.

On the contrast, the big fat bloated undead fell bats seem to be capable of flying at full speed. :rolleyes:

Hovering indeed, like a Slann palanquin? (For the life of me I cannot see Slann and Fly in the same sentence.)

I think I remember a piece of fluff where a Slann uses his tongue to snatch a fly that happened to pass too close by.

Of course this has nothing to do with the rules forum.

Hello and welcome kakmonstret.

Sometimes a thread can churn out very heated responses.
At least these responses have been good natured and friendly in nature.

Yeah kammonstret. Welcome to the forums. Listen to DD, he speaks with the voice of the experience, this was funny in a way not often seen around.
