I seem to remember this being defined in an older edition... I remember that banners and wings did not count, but weapons and armor did.

Maybe I'm thinking of Fantasy. I need to check my rulebook lol.

I may be missing it, but I can not even find that in the new book. All I can find is on page 30: models can only fire if they have line of sight.

I understand the ideas of wings or banners not counting, but I am unable to find it in the rules. Or like a recent game, I couldn't fire at a Dreadknight because the model see the shoulder gears/pistons, but not the "body" of the model. Thus why I am making this inquiry while waiting for a game.

From the rulebook...

"For one model to have line of sight to another, you must be able to trace a straight, unblocked line from its body(the head, torso, arms or legs) to any part of the targets body"

by that definition, you must be able to see (head,, torso, arms or legs) ..

so weapons, banners, wings etc are no..unless they see part of the arm, legs, torso etc...

next paragraph ..

"Sometimes, all that will be visible of a model is a weapon, banner or other ornament he is carrying. In these cases, the model is NOT visible. Similarly, we ignore wings,tails and antennae even though they are technically part of the models body"

Thank you for quelling the trolls, Dylan. On the other hand, I'm a little sad that I didn't come to this thread sooner because I enjoy making some popcorn and watching people make petty comments on a "discussion".

And thank you to Techpriest Enginseer for answering the question at hand. I have had this question come up a few times recently so it's nice to to reiterate the rules.
