Blade shield specifies that "this model gains +2 def against ranged attack roles". I know if this model is shot by what I'd consider to be a normal ranged attack, the model will get +2 def, but I'm curious as to if my models receive this bonus or not when being targetted by a,

Spray attack,
Magic attack,
Spell attack (from a warcaster/warlock)

Spray attack is can be either melee, ranged or magic attack. Being a spray attack have nothing to do with this, and what really important is the type of attack.

Only if the attack is ranged attack it gets Blade Shield.

Magic attack is a magic attack, not ranged attack, so it is not affected by Blade Shield.

Offensive Spell makes a magic attack, so no.

A ranged attack is any attack that either specifically states it is a ranged attack, or that is made by a ranged weapon (green pistol icon). Spells and magic attacks are not ranged attacks.
