Simplified, would you class a unit locked in combat as the nearest target?
To expand, you can shoot a character only if its the closest target. To quote:
- Quote :
- A CHARACTER can only be chosen as a target in the Shooting phase if the closest vsible enemy unit to the model that is shooting.
The question I'm seeing if how this relates to:
- Quote :
- Models cannot target enemy units that are within 1" of friendly models - the risk of hitting your own troops is too great.
So, lets say you have a unit, lets call them some Kabalite Warriors.
They wish to fire, and a Characters WOULD be the closest visible target, if not for another unit. Lets call them a Tactical Squad. But said Tactical Squad is within 1" of a friendly unit.
So if I can not traget the tactical Squad, does this mean they don't count for nearest enemy unit? Meaning I can shoot the Character (Which to complete the mental image, I'm going to call a Librarian)?
