Some questions about fliers
In the BRB under fliers, it says that a zooming flier can shoot up to four of its weapons at full BS. The very next paragraph says that all shots against a zooming flier must be resolved as snap shots. Forgive me if this is a total noob question....but if one flier shoots at another flier does it use its own BS or is it a snap shot?
Also, can a flier still elect to zoom after a unit has disembarked? It says models cannot embark or disembark from a zooming flier, but the decision for it to zoom comes after that decision to disembark. I get that people can't jump into (or out of) a flier that's zooming across the battlefield, but the idea that a flier could zoom in, have its units disembark, then zoom away makes sense in the logical part of my mind. I feel like that's what storm ravens (in my particular instance) are meant to do.
These were some things that came up in a recent game, and since my friend and I are both new to 6th and the dudes at the local GW often offer poor advice I thought I'd shoot it out to the forum and see what comes back. I'd appreciate any help with these conundrums!
