Played a game against PoM last night and was unsure how to rule the following situation.

eCaine charged PoM?s Revenger ending up base to base with him. He shot him (using :Gunfighter:) but Revenger?s repulsor sheild pushed eCaine back 1?. So now he?s out of his ½? gunfighter range but within the Revenger?s 2? melee range (with reach)



Should Revenger?s Repulsor Shield ability trigger against gunfighter attacks?
Can eCaine perform ranged attacks if he?s 1? away from an enemy model with reach?

Repel only works against melee attacks, gunfighter attacks are ranged attacks with a melee range.

1. No. Gunfighter attacks are still considered to be ranged attacks and the defensive aspect of the Repulser Shields Repel ability only triggers on melee attacks.

2. Assuming that the enemy model is engaging him with it's reach weapon, but is outside his .5" Gunfighter range, then the answer is no, he can't make ranged attacks.
