Default Mind War

So it says in the rules that IC cannot be targeted in the shooting phase unless they are the closest unit to the shooter. But in the Eldar Codex in says any model within 18" of the farseer may be targeted for Mind War. if there is a unit closer to my Farseer but there is an IC a little further away but within 18" I cannot target the IC. Is this correct?

Two different words there sir; Unit and Model. The IC protects him from being shot at as a unit, but nothing protects him as a model. Things that target specific models ignore the basic shooting rules. If an IC is in range, he is fair game. (Same with Gift of Chaos, Assassins Sniper Shot, etc)

Pondering...
