Shooting (3)

Postby lerostratos » Wed Dec 05, 2012 10:27 am

Page 87 : "Bucklers, Shields, Large Shield and Spara never add their ARM bonus against shooting attacks to their unprotected right side or rear"
Page 52 : "Units with shield may not use them, and their ARM check is adjusted accordingly, if they are hit by missiles from the rear"

Question is about the right side (for standard formation, not phalanx or shieldwall) is it protected or not with shields ?

Another question concerning hills and shooting. The rule says " Troops deployed on a hill are permitted to fire over friendly troops and have LoS over obstacles such as walls and copses." and precises that ennemy troops can shoot units using a hill with the same restrictions. Can units on a hill fire over ennemy troops ?

The rules says "troops using a hill are vulnerable to enemy units using massed fire with all weapons and ignoring interposing terrain in the same manner against them"... nothing about enemy unit. If you have an enemy unit in the plain and behind on a hill an other one, I think you can shoot on the hill with anyone who has a LoS.

I add a question about elephant : they can see over units and be seen. I supposed the same rule applies, and that's why an escort gives a -1 to hit.

Yes, you may shoot over enemy troops.
