Default Fast Vehicle vs AP1 Weapon

ok i have come across this a couple of times and i cant work out which has preference.

situation - an eldar fast vehicle has moved more than 6" (therefore penetrating hits are downgraded to glancing), and is shot at by an AP 1 weapon (glancing hits are upgraded to penetrating).

which takes preference, the fast vehicle or the AP 1 weapon? any comments to help clarify this is much appreciated.

The fast part of the Eldar vehicle will downgrade any shots fired at it into glancing hits. The AP 1 will do nothing to change that.

Fast vehicle moving over 6" always wins against auto-pens.

sorry, but after rechecking both the eldar codex and the 40k rule book, its ambiguous at best.

the two rules completely contradict each other, and until games workshop errata's the problem I would say just flip a coin for the matter. Either that or you and your opponent can agree beforehand which takes precedence.

To blindly follow others is to live the life of a lemming. Be yourself, no matter what others may say.

In my experience, the skimmer moving over 6" rule has always superceded the AP-1 penetration rule, without question.

in my GW store they have always said AP1 rule applies, but they've alwyas failed to offer any proof.

GW clairified a long time ago, skimmers win against any rule.

As Malcor said, GW has clarified, skimmer wins over auto-pen. This was answered in another thread. please use the search function in future. -S
