        Hasnt anyone ever noticed that its really strange that if skimmers
end the turn over impassable terrain they have to land (ie crash - even when a
normal unit wouldnt have a problem ie difficult terrain - they still crash)
yet if involved in close combat they , amazingly are still suspended high
in the air so that anyone can shoot at them (ie CC). What do they do-
dive into the ground in a suicidal frenzy at the end of the turn? Reaeeeeel a:
convenient b: inconsistent.
        I like the 'stop over impassable terrain ' house rule.
