Hi all,

Just played a casual game and we came up with a little issue in regards to skirmishers. I run archer screens as an empire player. Two questions, first does an friendly archer screen block my line of sight? Second, if it does not can I shoot/charge past a friendly archer screen to an enemy within range?
Since it was a casual game and i would like to do things only that i know i can do we decided to not allow either since this never was an issue and we ingeniously did not have the rulebook on hand.

Yes, it blocks line of sight. No, you can't charge/shoot through them unless you're a unit of skinks and the charging unit is a unit of kroxigors.

See diagram 65.1 on p. 65 and the rules under Shooting on p. 67 of the BRB.
Basically (re-)read the Skirmish rules.
