FMC and Jink

Post  Rhaevyn on Mon Jun 16, 2014 4:44 pm

Not sure if we went over this before. but rules as written it appears that being a FMC gives you the Jink special rule.... weather your glideing or swooping.. yes?

It doesn't say, "when swooping, you can jink" it says FMC has the Jink special rule.

Just making sure that i didn't miss anything here

rulebook wrote:SPECIAL RULES
In addition to the special rules that all Monstrous Creatures have, Flying Monstrous Creatures also have the Jink and Vector Strike special rules.

FLIGHT MODES
Flying Monstrous Creatures can move using one of two flight modes: Swooping or Gliding.

That's kinda scary... but if that's indeed exactly how it says it and there are no hidden sidebars anywhere or have it merged into the Jink rule itself then RAW yes, they do *shutter*

Are there any limitations on charging after jinking?

So a winged Nurgle Prince, opperating in Jump Infantry mode, could simply just bum-rush across the field with narry a care?

It'd be good. But anything that ignores cover/jink is going to mess him up in a hurry.
