Played mission C last night, with Ogan and his shield generators. I have a few questions, as the wording on the card is a bit fuzzy.
The card says "...Any shooting attack passing into or through this area from outside will hit the force field. It can be attacked directly. If all spaces are covered the force field is removed..."
1. If a model INSIDE the FF shoots out or through it, does the shot hit the FF? By card wording, I would think not. Which implies that friendlies or ENEMIES who have gotten inside the area are not affected by it.
2. If an enemy is shooting at someone inside the FF, do you use the defense dice of the target or of the FF?
3. Is there any good reason NOT to target the FF first, to bring it down and destroy it, before shooting at someone inside?
4. Regarding the all spaces covered line, I assume this refers to an AOE attack that would cover all of the FF spaces?
1.) If you are inside and firing out or firing just inside it than you are not affected.
2.) I think you use the defense dice of the target. If the shield is already weak shooting at the target means unabsorbed damage would go to the target.
3.) Initially shooting the FF first is a good idea as it is only 1 dice but if you are throwing a lot of dice you could miss the chance of damaging the target.
4.) I believe the all spaces covered is refering the the 3 shield squares on the card.
