Barrage weapons and trenches
had a game just now and a few 'funny' things happened.
so I don't end up spaming the forum i'll parse them out.
First one: I had a unit of scouts in a trench with stealth, a failed pinning test making them go to ground for a 2+.
A barrage unit (biovore for the record) fired and landed all three templates right on my model all direct hits. now, my opponent (who had a7th edition rule book and I did not) said that since the barrage weapon had hit in the middle of the trench, so that there was no direct obstruction (say a wall) between the center of the template and any of my models, the trenches 4+ cover was negated since, as mentioned there was nothing between my scouts and the center of the blast, so I had only a 5+ cover (go to ground + stealth) save, needless to say I lost a lot of scouts.
my obvious question is, is that correct? did the barrage by virtue of not getting a wall between its center and my models, strip the cover away?
I think we were counting it as ruins and it was a GW trench with a bottom , so not just two walls with some guys in the middle (question still stands for that case I feel)
note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.
