I didn't see this specific situation so I guess I will ask it here.
If you have a warmachine (not guess range) on a hill and there is a non-large target behind a large target that is not on a hill, can you see the non-large target to shoot at it?
Or does the fact that it is a large target negate the fact that you can see over it (because you are on a hill)
I can see nothing in the rulebook that says you can't....
i think (as long as you are playing a friendly game) you should be pretty reasonable about it.. you could say a sinlge model on foot might be able to hide behind a giant or stegadon, but behind a flying creature isn't.. hiding an entire unit wouldn't be possible at all i think
but also the height of the hill might be an effect. (a giant is large, but not THAT large ).
but if you play per rules, there is no exeption bout large targets meaning you can shoot over it.

Ehh actually no. If a large target, with its base, is positioned, so that no bases are showned behind him, then you cannot shoot at them.
Its a different matter with terrain though, in which case you should try and work it out with your opponent, and decide upon line of sight.
EDIT: Yeah, what I meant with the large target question, was if there were enemy models hiding directly behind a large target.

Well, this is a question that has a lot of answers. Depends on how you agree with your opponent. But if you want official, the BRB says you actually eyeball it. Get down at the level of the warmachine on the hill and see if the unit behind the large target is visible. Can lead to some people manipulating the terrain and monster models though if you are not careful.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
