Vindicare assassin can target whoever he wants. period. But what about special screening rules? I think there is one for necrons and another for tau sheild drones. What happens then? I mean he is a sniper...
I don't know if my translation is accurate, but it says that a vindicaire can shoot any target "which he can see and which is within range". So LOS is required, and screening blocks LOS.
The things like tau drones and similar ones are also dealt with in the vindicaire rules, which say that he can pick his target "regardless of any other circumstances, such as the IC rules". The protection of a drone is such an "other circumstance". Only LOS and being within range is required for the vindicaire to shoot a target.
That doesn't change the rules as laid out by ArchonAstaroth. It only means that you may have LoS in some situations that you would not have if you were on a flat surface. You still can't shoot through screens, only now some screens may not be in the way of your LoS.
