Default Running under skimmers.

What do you say to people who want to run under the skimmers to assault your firewarriors?* Is there really anything in the rules that says this cannot be done?* I know there's been some arguments on "fluff" but what do you think about rolling difficult terrain and letting your opponent do this?* This come up in my most recent battle but the fish got blown up in the shooting phase so in the assault phase he just climbed over the downed skimmer and we didn't have to settle it.* But I think rolling difficult terrain to try should be ok.* Anyone out there do this?

Edit
oops, will a mod please move this for me? thx

this shoudnt be in army lists, but you cant, tere is an obscure rule in the BGB that I cant give a pg. ref for that states you may not come withing one inch of an opposing model without charging it, this is the principle the FoF is based on :P

So its not that they cannot run under the skimmer its that they would have to charge the skimmer before they charge the fire warriors? That's interesting.

Precisely. It's probably just because you'd have to move the models... and anyways skimmers can float in the shooting phase and land in Assault...

It's an assumption of what they're probably doing... Kind of joking...

in the movement phase you can't bring your models within 1" of an enemy unit. therefore, you cant run in, on or over a live enemy unit. you can run over dead vehicles as they count as difficult terrain.
