Hi! I'm still kinda new to the game, but me and my friend has settled on 8th ed and has played a few games now. My friend who plays orks and goblins usually takes 3 spear chuckas and a tone of archers. This just crushes me every time. I still find the game fun and all, but I was wondering about firing over friendly units. Is it possible? We have figured that an archer och warmachine has the range to shoot over head of friendly troops unless they are close to the enemy or firing archer/warmachine. But maybe the game is not ment to be played like that? Is it just line of sight, and that gets blocked if friendly units are in the way? Even if a bolt thrower has 46" range, the enemy is 36" away and a friendly unit is in the way, but 16" away from the bolt thrower?
