Throw & prone questions

Hi.

I have some questions.

First, when you throw a model, can you change its facing ? I think the answer is no.

In that case, what's happened to te facing when you don't throw toward ?

 

What is the correct placement 1 or 2 ?

 

Second question :

When a model is prone, the rules say that the prone model doesn't block line of sight, but does a prone model bring cover for its allies behind ?

Third question :

Does a small element of decor or a small sized mini block LOS on a medium sized prone mini ?

 

Thank you for your futures answers.

Throw attack was changed from a place to a throw to avoid changing the thrown model facing. So I'd say that the correct placement is 1 because you can't change the original facing.

In answer to 2

If the model is not blocking line of sight I would argue it isn't obscuring any of an opponent's volume and therefore not offering cover.

3 I would argue that being prone doesn't change how obscuring works for a prone model.

I tend to agree, I'd say that a prone model has no Volume while determining LoS unless it's being targeted, in which case you use it's normal Volume to determine LoS.

Agree with the two above...

 

remember that cover is when a model cannot  see the entirety of the base from any point of its own base. If another volume doesn’t block LoS, it can see the full base and there fore it’s not on cover.

 

Miniatures do block LoS, however I’m not sure if insignificant models do so as well.

 

regardingg terrain, you should always agree with your opponent prior starting which terrain features block and which do not :)
