    Question about firing arrows. If a group of good archers are on top of a hill and a unit of good warriors are below them at the foot of the hill and a unit of baddies are visibly in front of the goodies at the foot of the hill, can the good archers fire at it? The ROTK rulebook doesnt clarify anything about elevation and firing bows OVER a friendly unit. If im wrong, could someone please tell me the page number? :blush:


    PS The arrow volley rule is not what im lookin for. Im talkin about closer range. ^_^

    Thanks!

    As I read the rules it says nothing about not being able to do this as your line of sight does not in any way pass through the space occupied by your own model so there is no reason to not be able to fire using the normal rules. The rules say you must ahve line of sight and that your own models obstruct line of sight if they come between you and the target, in this case they don't so theres no problem.

    I ran into this a couple of weeks ago. As long as they are not in combat with friendly models, and you can draw a line of site to the target without it hitting a friendly model, you can shoot at them. Thats what the GW guy said during the match anyway .
