i was just wondering if troops can block line of site to a squiggoth. IF they cant then a squiggoth isnt really that great due to the fact that it will die if it gets hit 6 times with an ap 4 gun. i defidently think they should get a 2+ save.
i was also wondering in a feral ork army if u dont use squiggoths due to the fact that they die easily and they are so huge, what else can u use thats good?
I wasnt sure if modelss block line of site because maybe it would be like the wraithlords and only need models to come up to around its knee.
No, troops can't block LoS to a squiggoth. A 2+ armor save would make them ridiculously hard to kill. They have a high T and multiple wounds... they're not going to disappear that fast. Your description assumes that the AP 4 gun is going to wound every time it hits. It isn't.
my friend killed it on the 1st turn with 8 shots thats y i think they are kinda easy to kill. i think they deserve at least a 3+ save dont u?
dump some grot in front of it. 5+ cover save.

the grots can give it a cover save? i didnt think they could cuz they tiny and its huge
They can't. The rule states "Any ork mobs which are shot at 'through' a Grot mob...."
A squiggoth does not count as a mob. You can't use grots to shield anything but normal boyz.... vehicles, guns, kans, or squiggoths don't benefit.
As for it's death in the first turn: That'll happen if the enemy has little else to shoot at; the same thing happens to hive tyrants all the time.
"my friend killed it on the 1st turn with 8 shots thats y i think they are kinda easy to kill. i think they deserve at least a 3+ save dont u?"
What was he shooting at it? He must had been really lucky, or have a crap load of heavy weapons.
he was shooting at me with 2 hive tyrants im not sure what they had
they had venom cannons....

than he can't have fired more than 6 shots, the weapon has as many attacks as the creature carrying it, ( bonus for St is not included )
