Hello LO, help me with this rule and tactic i'm going to pull off during my next game and wanting to know if it is viable
During my shooting phase, i have say a hellhound 4 inches apart from an infantry squad. During the phase my hellhound has an open view of an enemy unit and decides to shoot its inferno cannon. Afterwards i claim my infantry squad to run having say a result of 4+ (in this case lets say 6) and i move them a max of 6 inches and place it in front of the hellhound, causing it to be obsured. Is this a viable tactic and can i use it or am i doing something illegal?

as you declare each action and then resolve it there is nothing wrong with this only way for it to work however is as he said if your models cover over 50% of the model ( i don't think an IG squad would work but a unit of Ogryn would)

There's nothing wrong with this, and it's a fine tactic for normal tanks in general.
That said, what's the point of doing this with a Hellhound's Inferno cannon? You can never get cover saves from a template weapon attack.
Actually I find it hard to believe that a squad of units in front of a tank would ever block los from a turret mounted cannon to another squad. This said, Perfectly valid tactic. But it is very tauwardly (cowardly) of you and the imperial war machine
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
Just to jump on the bandwagon, everything you said sounds perfectly legal though I'm dubious that a squad of IG would be enough to cover 50% of the facing on a hellhound.
perhaps if the guardsmen were all 400 pounds and had Napoleon Hats on.....
Vehicles can't use intervening models like area terrain. They must use true LOS for being 50% obscured. However, you can simply get some cover from infantry and claim cover with a -1 modifier for a 5+ save.
