well, you shure? its...mindblowing. RAW that could be gamechanging.This is actually covered under Zooming Flyers under the Hard to Hit heading. Essentially anything that doesn't roll to hit can't target zooming flyers, regardless of skyfire.
Strangely it doesn't read the same for swooping monstrous creatures, they just have the usual skyfire scenario, which I'm guessing is your conundrum.
If you really want to play it like that, it looks valid, as Skyfire states you fire at normal ballistic skill when shooting FMCs, and the Hard to Hit for FMCs literally has the exception for Skyfire without any mention of template weapons.
I'm not sure if this was intentional, maybe something to do with FMCs not moving quite as quickly as full blown flyers, but there you go.
it seems it's like this. well, some flyrant is going to weep!:taunt:Yeah this is a weird one.
FMC - Hard to Hit means against Swooping FMC, shots resolved at such a target can only be resolved as Snap Shots unless the model or weapon has the Skyfire special rule.
Vehicle - Hard to Hit means against Zooming Flyers, shots resolved at a Zooming Flyer can only be resolved as Snap Shots (unless the model or weapon has the Skyfire special rule). Template and Blast weapons, and any other attacks that don’t roll To Hit, cannot hit Zooming Flyers.
Skyfire - A model with this special rule, or that is firing a weapon with this special rule, fires using its normal Ballistic Skill when shooting at Flyers, Flying Monstrous Creatures and Skimmers, but it can only fire Snap Shots against other targets.
Of course a 'Blast' or 'Template' weapons that have skyfire would not need to snap shot, so defeats the whole "you can't fire at me as you have to snap fire and can't with a blast/template weapon".
BUT for FMCs as said above you can hit them with Blast or Templates so long as you didn't need to snapfire (so would need skyfire), BUT for Zooming flyers you could not as it says "Template and Blast weapons, and any other attacks that don’t roll To Hit, cannot hit Zooming Flyers."
Strangely this also means that even a Template or Blast aimed at something else but scatters on to the Zooming Flyer can't hit it... even with Skyfire.
