Can a Flyer with Hover mode deep strike in Hover mode?
Skimmers that are not also Heavy vehicles have the Jink special rule.
And that's what Deep Strike states.DEEP STRIKE
Some units make their way to battle via tunnelling, teleportation, flying, or some other
extraordinary means which allows them to appear in the thick of the fighting.
In order for a unit to be able to Deep Strike, all models in the unit must have the Deep
Strike special rule and the unit must start the game in Reserve.
Since Hover makes you act like a Fast Skimmer and does not confer Deep Strike, what Fliers are actually left having the DS rule? I know all of the ones I use (Stormravens, Night/Doom Scythes, and Vendettas) do not have the Deep Strike rule....so which ones still do that don't also have a FAQ likely removing it?That aside, there's nothing preventing a Flyer by Deep Striking in Zooming mode
Nope, it's about Fliers and Deep Strike. Venomlust came on with a list of FW fliers that have DS (which I don't have the books to verify the rules for) and Vaz mentioned some 30k stuff that has specific rules for how DS and Fliers work, so are there any 40k fliers that still have the Deep Strike rule or is this resolved?Anyway, that's not what the thread is about.
That seems odd to me since if you're gliding you count as a Jump Monstrous Creature, and Jump units can Deep Strike standard.I think i also remember seeing that flyers deepstriking have to start in flying mode even if they have the hover rule, though i am not 100% sure. I know a daemon prince or greater daemon with wings that deepstrikes (even through possession) seems to have to start as souring, rather than gliding. The exception to this is where the rules for the deepstriker say that they have to start in hover mode, such as the dreadclaw and khardris assault drop pods.
