    I think raw you can hit swooping monstrous creatures with blasts, just cant target them. Personally I am okay with this since they can claim cover from the ground while flying….

      So do Fliers. They claim cover exactly the same as ground vehicles

        Wouldn’t that mean they need to be 25% obscured? Not the same as “toe in cover” for mc/FMCS

    Frankie, go play another tournament to dethrone me for #1 Dark Eldar. It’d be embarrassing to get beaten by a rainbow themed Dark Eldar army that took 3 tournaments to pass you up! =P

    Do wrecked vehicles block line of sight?

      I’d say yes. It says leave the model in place and treat it as difficult terrain. So if the model blocks los (like a wrecked monolith), treat it as such.

      ““In any other circumstance, a Wrecked model is left in place, and is treated as a Citadel scenery model with the difficult terrain type.”
