Uh...Remember - Biovores are a template weapon. You choose a spot on the map - not a target. So you are technically targetting the area under them, which you can see. Then if it deviates, it deviates. Then remember - spore mines just drift mindlessly. If they run into the guy, oh well. If not, have a synapse detonate them.

Shrouding restricts the enemy's line of sight - biovores don't need line of sight at all. Therefore biovores or guess weapons are unaffected.

Wrong. Guess range double their scatter distance if outside the spotting range.

Well, if they arent then they arent affected by the shrouding rule. Just do whatever makes sense. If they attack would imply that they know where the GK are, then I dont think they should be targeted, as they are supposed to be shrouded/hard to see.

Well this is how you work - you choose any spot within 48" of the vore, say what kind of mine you are shooting, and then you put it there. Then you roll deviation.

Its not guess in the since that you dont guess the range - you just pick where it lands.

Biovores are their own type of weapon, so they are "immune" to shrouding or night fighting or any of that stuff.

On the other hand, they already have a large deviation so its not really unbalanced.
