Hi all, we're in a game right now. The Nids player targeted my Etheral. When we measusred he was half an inch out or range. So I think the shot is wasted. He thinks that the spore mine lands at longest range and then follows the mine rules. So what do you all think?
I agree with your friend, I see the spore mine landing and acting using the spore mine rules, since you can fire them at nothing and let them float around anyway, where WOULD the mine disappear to otherwise?

Fenrir: and magic.

The shot is wasted. The only time you place a Spore Mine from a Biovore shot is if the shot scatters off target and fails to make contact with a model. Out of range shots are never covered in the Codex, so would fall under normal Barrage rules (I.E., be wasted shots.)
Hurrah for mixed answers! Heheh.
The only problem with the spore mine being destroyed is that there are rules in place to fire a spore mine at nothing and have it still exist. Why would a spore mine that can't quite make the distance to the target be any different than a spore mine shot at nothing?
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone

Yep, targeting void space was 3rd edition, no longer legal.
