Skimmer

Unit ability

[TODO: add introductory text.]


Where your unit has the Skimmer ability:

  • You may ignore terrain when you move the unit — though you must still take a dangerous terrain test if the unit is in dangerous terrain at the start or end of the move, and you may not place the unit on impassable terrain.

  • In the Shooting phase, you may make a 'pop-up' attack with the unit. In such an attack, the unit rises up so that it can see over intervening terrain and target an enemy that lies beyond.

    • When you make a pop-up attack with the unit, you can draw a line of sight over intervening terrain.

    • The unit remains 'popped up' for the remainder of the Shooting phase — it returns to ground level at the end of the phase. In the meantime, your opponent can also draw a line over intervening terrain to shoot back.
