I was playing a battle today and some interesting questions came up:
1) If you pass your target priority test and your line of sight goes through or is partially impeded by a squad with the shrouding do you have to roll to see the unit behind it?
2) If you shoot through a squad with shrouding into another squad with shrouding do you have to roll twice?
3) Can you even shoot through an entire unit to hit another unit behind it? (I strongly disagree, but I haven't been able to read to rule book to extensively lately. I would think it blocks line of sight, but my friends say the book doesn't specify that infantry block line of sight.)
Thank you much.

1) no. a rule of thumb is that infantry does NOT block line of sight. only large targets.
2)no. troops that are firing at a squad with shrouding are being actively manipulated. it's not just some hologram that distracts people. besides, whether or not they can see a closer unit wouldn't matter anyway.
3)yes, again, infantry does not block line of sight. however, you still have to take a target priority test.
