If a Basilisk Is fired Indirectly how do you determine cover saves???
As the Basilisk shell comes from above how do you determine who does and who doesn't?
Also on a similar point If shooting at a vehicle If you place the template over the rear armour and It hits do you take the front AV or the rear AV according to the rule book you take It from whichever direction the shell was fired but as I have mentioned does the shell not come from directly above hence the name 'Indirect'?
Thanks In Advance
If they are IN a piece of scenery then they get the normal cover save with a -1 modifier. If they are out in the open, then dont get any save, no matter where they are. (except for wargear things like kustom force field)
Hope that helps.
Cover against Barrage (and Ord Barrage) weapons is determined from the center hole of the marker.
If the Cover in question is set cover, like sandbags, a wall, etc. and there is nothing between the hole and the models, You don't get a Cover save. Essentially, the shot is on the same side of the Cover as Your models are.
If it's area cover (like woods) or a special rule which grants Cover save, You get the Cover save nevermind where the hole is because there is no set cover for the marker to circumvent.
4thEd rules, page 31, right column, "Barrage Weapons - Firing Barrages", fifth paragraph, line five: "... the centre of the marker..."
For dealing with vehicles, note 4thEd page 65, right column, bulleted paragraph below the picture: "In the case of a barrage weapon..."
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
