i have a doubt

Ryan fron the Cygnar Black 13th Gun Mage Strike Team has a Attack called Mage Storm with this rule text:

"MAGE STORM (*Attack) Make a ranged attack with this weapon with AOE 4. Models hit suffer a POW 12 magical damage roll. The AOE is a cloud effect that remains in play for one round. Models enterĂ*n or ending their activation in the AOE suffer a POW 12 magical damage roll. This model does not suffer damage from mage storm.

there is two questions:

1.- the POW 12 from the attack has to be managed as Blast damage, dividing POW between two?

2.- This aoe Cloud effect block LOS an give concealment to the models inside?

thanks for the help

1) If an AOE states that models take a specific POW X damage roll then this is not blast damage. If it says they take a POW X blast damage roll then it is blast damage. If it says neither, it is blast damage by default.

2) This is correct yes. It is a cloud effect of pain, but still a cloud effect nonetheless.

Mage Storm is not blast damage, and the POW of 12 is dealt equally to all models hit, for the reasons bakaryu said above.

It is a cloud effect, so yes it will confer concealment to those that brave the damage.
