    los and shooting wounds

    Myself and about a dozen 40k players all recently started playing fantasy, and we're still feeling our way through small 750 to 1k games. One question that came up this weekend was in an ogre vs. woodelf game. A unit of 5 leadbelchers targetted a unit of dryads. Of 10 dryads only 3 were visible due to a large forest. The question is, can the leadbelchers fire on the unit since less than half aren't visible, if so can only the 3 visible dryads be wounded or would wounds after the first 3 fall on units concealed by the terrain? Thanks in advance.

    As long as all the leadbelchers can see at least one dryad, then they can shoot at the unit as a whole. The fact that some are behind cover doesn't come into consideration.

    I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.

    I didn't mention that only 3 of the 5 belchers could draw LOS to a dryad. So those 3 belchers can see 3 dryads each. They roll well on the artillery dice and end up putting 7 wounds on the dryads, so 7 models die although only 3 are visible?

    It actually works much like 5th edition 40k shooting. Only those who can actually see (ie, in the firing arc, have range, and visibility) can shoot. So in your case, only the 3 of the 5 belchers could shoot.

    Then additionally, just like 5th edition, they can kill as many as their shooting allows. If you can hit one model in the unit, you can kill them all with your shooting. It's not limited to LoS / range.
