    I know that you know how I feel about 'One box and done' Kill Team Rosters. I also know from your next post that he isn't likely to get another box anytime soon.
    Whatever you have, is what you're gonna get.

    The Core Rules are extremely simple - almost deceptively so.
    Almost every rule that actually matters, is found on individual units, in their respective Codecies.

    A Tyranids-specific question - the Tervigon can produce Termagants, either in new units or to replenish existing units. How do you count the points cost for these Termagants?
    a) If you are replacing models from an existing unit, pay no points. You may respawn Termagants indefinitely.
    b) If you are creating a brand new unit or taking a unit above the model count it started the battle with, you must pay the Reinforcement Points.

    What? It's almost like you haven't read the rule.

    "Units within 1" of any enemy Fiends of Slaanesh cannot Fall Back unless they can <Fly>."
    You may be thinking of Skarbrand...Who sucks outside of this one gimmick.

    Drukari Wyches could pull off this trick, I think, as their No Escape rule doesn't specify non-flying. Provided they win the roll off of course.

    That explains it! None of the Tyranids that can fly have that rule. I guess that goes along with being Fast Attack rather than Flyers.
    The Greatest Threads Of GiantITP (in my opinion):
    A story of the exact wrong way to run a campaign.
    The best thread derailment of all time.
    The "canonical" list of Mostly Useless Magic Items.
    A ridiculous campaign.
    Weird dreams.

    Its probably more because they flap and jump around more than straight-up fly. Though it'd be nice if Gargoyles had that cuz they have no real reason to get near the ground
