So really the skyshield is the only real fortification in the game and heaps better then FoR or Bastion.

Looks like we need a seperate faq just for skyshields yay cant wait.
Keep in mind the FOR and Bastion are also fortifications, so while the battlement on top is only 4+ cover they would also give 3+ cover to any model obscured by the building sections (eg a tank behind them).

But yes, everyone who has ever played with or against a skyshield seems to have reached the conclusion it needs an FAQ.

ICs don't give fortifications infiltrate due to the order of events during deployment, instead they confer outflank. The Fortress of Redemption has to come in from a side edge (unless combined with Positional Relay or similar rule that allows the player to pick any edge).

I just read this on the internet....so it must be true!!

PS I have a skyshield in my new list hint the reason I wanted clarification oh well looks like my defens3 just got betta.
I'm imagining Khan and a squad of bikers starting the battle on top of one. Turn 1, they goto the edge, look down and ask Khan, "The (censored) do we do now?" Before revving their bikes a whole bunch.

Mongolians always struck me as raiders not siege defenders. :)
I imagine the battle at terra was interesting for them.
Defend the wall? Screw it. Charge!

Go back far enough in 40k lore and the white scars were wiped out completely as a chapter not long after the heresy before they were retconed back in.

Anyhow on topic just a spanner question to throw in. Assuming both side have deployed skyshields with the flaps down. Add a guy on each platform out in the open due to the shields down, would there be a cover save? while I don't think there should be, Matt's explanation would say otherwise.

Slightly confused by this.

If the flaps are down and the guys are out in the open then no cover saves (assuming you have a clear line of sight to them) or invul saves.

If one guy is in the open and the rest hidden, the first guy gets no cover save, the others get one (the 5th ed rule of 50% of the squad obscured doesn't exist anymore).
