Deadeye vs. Bodyguard
So we had a little rules question about the interaction between Duri's Ki Feat, Deadyeye, and the Bodyguard Trait. Would Deadeye prevent the use of Bodyguard? Deadeye states:Until the end of the current activation this model ignores Cover and the Tiny modifiers to Ranged Attacks. The Opposing player may not nominate a new Target for this Ranged Attack. Bodyguard is a bit more complicated: If an Enemy model declares an action that would move it into BtB with a [Descriptor] Friendly model, or Targets it with a Ranged Attack, this model may switch positions with the Friendly model before the action begins if the following conditions are met: The Friendly model is within X” and in LoS The Friendly model was not in BtB with an Enemy model at the start of the activation This model is not in BtB with an Enemy model This model is not Exhausted or Prone If the Enemy model has Fear, the bodyguard must pass a fear test Both models switching positions can fit within the space the other model occupied on the table without moving any other models If bodyguarding a larger based model, your opponent places the bodyguard anywhere within the area covered by the larger base then you choose facing. The Enemy model's action is then resolved with this model being declared as the Target. If this model has the Fear trait the enemy model must make a Fear Test as if this model were its original target. (Taken from the Wiki) My feeling is that bodyguard still activates as bodyguard is switching figures when target is declared and the bodyguard becomes the target... no target is nominated like when declaring a shot and the LOS of the shooter crosses the zone of control of another enemy figure. Anyway I can see both possibilities so just looking for some guidance on this corner case situation.

apologies for the wall of text... I thought I had spaced out my paragraphs!

Bodyguard still works against Deadeye.
Nominating another target in the text refers only to the part under a ranged attack where you can select another model if the shot would pass through that models ZoC.

Thanks! That was my thinking but wanted to get some further guidance on it.
