Hey guys, just checking the rulings on line of sight or arc of sight on war machines. Specifically, I'm wondering if a bolt thrower can turn any direction it wants to shoot at an enemy? In the rule book it mentions that during the shooting phase, the bolt thrower may pivot to face its enemy. Does this mean that the bolt thrower can turn say turn around to shoot at an enemy that starts the turn behind it?

yep, as the bolt thrower and the crew have 360 line of sight. Enemy starting behind you? scouts? if they were scouts they could not possibly deploy directly behind you unless they were out of sight of everything... including warmachines with 360 line of sight... and in/behind "interposing terrain"

thank you for help. When i said starts the turn behind them, I'm talking hypothetical situation.
