You can't argue semantics and nit pick about RAW wording when it supports your case and then make ambiguous assumptions and ignore the RAW when it doesn't.
PG 84 Of your Rule Book:
"Roll 2D6 and multiply the result by 3, rolling once per unit only. This is the maximum range that any non-barrage weapon can fire."
Seems pretty obvious there.
PG 49 of the Eldar Codex:
"Any unit wishing to target the Shadowseer or unit she is with must roll 2D6. This is their spotting distance in inches."
Veil of Tears has nothing to do with line of sight, nor with range. It has to do with targeting. The test is rolled to target the unit. Night fight is rolled to determine range. Since a Vindicare ignores targetting restrictions, it is a fair argument to say they ignore Veil of Tears.
But, this is the joy of the internet! We can argue about rules all we want here and not lose any time in our games, but if it ever did came up in a game, I would just say roll a D6 and be done with it.
