I dont have the NQ with the collosal rules, but i do have 2 of the cygnar storm walls. We played longest night last night, and i was trying my best to use the covering fire to pop the thralls as soon as they left the tents. The metal storms entry under covering fire says that it can place the aoe anywhere in the models line of site and range of the weapon. But i was told that i can only place it in the corresponding field of fire 90 degree arc for each side. Which to me sounds a little contradictory.
So can someone please outline all the shooting restrictions, so i know what guns can shoot at what. I was initially under the impression the two fields of fire only limited what models the fists could hit, and what grid took the damage from enemy models, but clearly i was mistaken.
So either A; both the range 14 pow 15 gun and the metal storm on the left side can only shoot what is in the left 90 arc. and the same goes for the right side.
B; All Guns arent actually restricted by field of fire, just the melee weapons.
C; Big gun and metal storm making d3 shots are restricted to field of fire, but covering fire shots are not restricted to field of fire.
Needless to say they werent as effective as id hoped cause trying to get the collosal lined up to get the covering fire shots to control the thralls and yet still be able to fire the pow 15 at my opponents models was rather difficult.
