Default Aegis line and short models

Can a model behind an aegis line that is to short to see over it, still fire at units beyond the line? Jokaero are really short lol.

You need Line of Sight to be able to shoot something so if they can't see their target then no they can't fire over the ADL.

Perhaps a little box ?

Alternatively positon the short models at the edge of the aegis so theyre partially covered but can see past it

LOL. Thank you Legolas.

The Jokaero must be tiny. The middle of the big sections of ADL are quite low.

Ya they're about half the size of a space marine. Maybe a little smaller. I totally added the boxes. Helped me take 1st in a tourney today. Thanks for the suggestion Mag.

This can occur with alot of walls/parapets (imagine IG HW teams behind defense lines). I usually play it as yes they can see over (providing they are in base contact) and can shoot but can also be shot and assaulted by the enemy.

That's just a house rule of mine.
