Hey everyone,

I had a question and I don't have my BRB with me at the moment.

But, if a Flyrant has warp blast, and it's been faq'd that FMC's have the skyfire rule while swooping, does that mean you can uncork a Warp Lance at another flyer? Or can pysker powers not be used while swooping?

also do this? (p49)

A: Yes.


No problem there... nothing prevents PWS (Psyker While Swooping).
Now you have to just roll 6 at the beginning of the game.

There is nothing to say for or against it, but, a flyrant still gives 12" synapse in the air. The only down side is, you have to finish your move in range or some venomthropes.

I said they were beefy last edition, and now they're are down right mighty.

Just for some balance, it will need some help from Venomthropes, it's the +3 jink save that's crucial imo.

He's not a total deathstar, but definitely needs some TIE fighter wings to help him out. =)
