If you check out the terrain rules, core and advanced, it states a unit must be IN cover (Inside the terrain feature) to gain a bonus from cover.

Being obscured isn’t enough, you must be inside the terrain to gain any cover save from being 50% obscured.

Reference the basic terrain rules, and the rules for woods, ruins and (to a lesser extent) battlescape and you’ll see they keep mentioning the whole unit must be inside the cover. In fact the only terrain rules that grant cover without being inside it, is the Imperial statuary.

Great batrep as always! Really enjoyed the new graphics and intro! Well done Lawrence! I’ve said it before but you guys put on the best batreps and 40k content out there. Keep up the good work!

Really liking the new graphics. Really tough game for Myrmidon but as you say Lawrence, that’s effectively a 7th ed list and everythings changed for 8th so it doesn’t work as well. I would have to agree with the Colonel as well, that probably was his best ever list, Baneblade chassis haven’t been that scary for a long time.

Gotta completely disagree with the Colonel there; ignoring Line of Sight doesn’t mean you ‘ignore cover’. It just means they know the enemy’s rough positioning. They know; for example that a unit is moving through quadrant x, not necessarily that they’re up tree #32. Someone can duck underneath a table from an airbursting round from something that ignores line of sight; but can’t against the siege cannon because it evaporates that table and it’s sheltering peons too.

Looking forward to the time you guys (in game) remember that Tyrants have an invulnerable save too 😉

“The ratling sniper, Mark Whalberg,” Rico’s failed charged, the narrations of carnage… The table looks great, the scenery is awesome… So fun to watch these reports. Jamie – Your army looks amazing, man. Just spectacular. In the game, your target selection was on point. Bone – My man! Good Mawloc placement out the gate, but you had so many beautiful line of sight blockers go unused! Make that super heavy move to get shots off! Tactics to deal with armored flamers – Overwatch is resolved exactly as shooting is in the shooting phase, except for that you hit on 6’s… Read more »
