Default Heldrake fire is flamer at other FMC?

may be sounds like a dumb question but its this possible? My friend plays with 3 Flyrants and Im playing game today and fielding my heldrake for the first time, can it flame other flyers?

I'd think yes, since a flyer can choose to make use of skyfire

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

I would say no, template and blast weapons can't have skyfire.

Scsco nailed it. Regardless of who's firing, template and blast can't be used against air targets. It's why the Stormraven with Plasma Cannons ends up in a 'bomber' role.

you mean cannot snap fire.

EDIT: also, checked, they CAN have skyfire, but they specifically CANNOT target flyiers in zoom mode...so, it's a no.

Well, flamer and blast templates can't hit flyers in swoop mode, right?

oh not really. they have skyfire but cannot target the zooming / swooping models... clunky solution, as usual.
