Can infantry block enemy shooting at vehicles? is this different for walkers, can walkers be blocked from enemy shots by infantry?
Infantry can only block infantry, vehicles are not affected....but vehicles do block LOS to infantry...so the rule is a bit twisted.
"Da Orks is da best cuz we ar ded ard an killy, mean, green, krumpin machines, hav da most dakka, da stompiest dreads, da shootiest gunz, da biggest bosses, an we uze choppas...WAAAGH!"
what about something like a wraithlord can infantry block that even though it is like huge compared to say a guardian, what are the rules with that?
the ruling is, that infantry can block LOS to anything that is less than or equal to 2 times their height...so something like a scarab swarm cannot screen for destroyers, but basic necron warriors can
so if wraithgaurd are tall enough to block a wraithlord (more than half of it's height) and guardians are big enough to block wraithguard... if you had guardians with wraithguard behind them and a wraithlord behind the wraithguard you wouldn't be able to shoot the wraithlord or the wraithguard right...?
Wolfraider, is the rule you mentioned about units/vehicles with AP value not being able to be blocked by infantry in the rulebook somewhere, I can't find it.
All I can find is that models can block other models less than or equal to twice their height. So I'm debating whether or not my dreadnaut can be blocked from LOS by SMs since he is right about twice their height. Anyways, thanks
The ruling can be found in the Rulebook FAQs, both online and CA2004-versions.
