I dont think i umderstand really how shooting works. Say i have a unit with ranged weapons and want to fire at a group of guardsmen next to a group of conscripts.
Do I chose to target the guardsmen unit as a whole, or a single model? If i target the unit as a whole, can the defender then choose for the attqcks to be evenly divided between everyone within 3'' of the guardsman closest to the conscripts, so that I fire largely at the conscripts instead? How does LoS interact with this? If the target model is at the edge of the range, can those within 3'' but outside of range still be wounded?
Id love a bulletpoint list of the procedure, if anyone wants to help thanks a lot!
You choose units that are more than one model as a whole.
As far as multiple units go "All non-melee weapons may target a single unit or split attacks as evenly as possible among all enemy units within 3” of a single model (defender chooses how)."
So what this means is, you could either target the guardsmen entirely, or target both units, so long as the unit of conscripts is within 3" of at least one of the guardsmen models.
The "defender chooses how" part is for situations when you have an odd number of attacks per unit. So in this case, lets say you were firing 3 attacks. The defender could choose which unit the 1 attack goes to and which unit the 2 attacks go to. But that is still dependent on you choosing that firing option. If you chose to target one unit only, the defender wouldn't have any say in the division of attacks.
Also, keep in mind "Groups and Wounds: When a unit with more than one model takes wounds don’t roll on the wound table, instead each wound kills one model until only one last model remains. Roll on the table as usual for the last model takes."
Which specific model buys the farm in a group isn't covered. I've always played it as defender's choice. This could mean that the defender ends up choosing a model that is out of range of the weapon that fired.
