Welcome to Librarium Online!
OK an issue arose the other day during a game, I had my Broadsides behind a unit of snipers along a flank, a unit deepstrikes nearby (closest unit is snipers and second is broadsides) and decides to try and shoot the broadsides.
Question: does he need to test and see if he can see the snipers? i
Question 2: if he cant see the snipers (low spotting roll) does he need to test for target priority or can he shoot the broadsides since they are the nearest unit that they can see?
Thanks for the help in advance.
1) If you're talking about Sniper Drones, they have Stealth Fields and thus can be ignored for target priority.
2) He has to declare that he is attempting to shoot at your Sniper Drones, and if he fails his spotting check, his shots automatically miss. He may not target another unit.
