Question PoS from WE book allows any character to get picked out of a unit. Does that character still get a "Look out sir, Arrg!" roll?

Along the same lines, When picking a character out of a unit, with the Hunters Talon, does the character have to be in a location the shooter can see him in TLOS. For example, a sniper was sitting on one side of the unit, the mage was on the other side of the unit, can the mage still be picked out?

Look Out, Sire! is not for attacks that pick out a character, it is for template attacks, including cannons and certain spells without a physical template (crack's call).


If a spell affects an entire unit, or the entire front rank (wall of fire) or a shooting attack that specifically singles out a character out of the unit (sniper) then a Look Out, Sire! is not available.


And to shoot a specific model you have to see that specific model of course.

thats kinda precisely what look out sir is for...Ďa ranged attack with unique targeting rules, which allow the player to deliberately aim his shot at a character inside a unití.

He means that if you are specifically allowed to target just the character with the attack, they do not benefit from the 'Look out Sire!'

Just like targeting someone in a unit with Buboes (WoC spell), they would not get the 'Look out Sire!' regardless of unit size.

For templates, yes. For things that target a single model, no.
Cannon ball aims at a model too, but its included in the 'templates' attack.
Sniper is aimed at a model, but its not a template, its an attack against the model, the LoS! rule does not apply in those cases.

Look out sir was put in there because an experienced player that knows there ranges can "snipe" characters out of units with cannons or stone throwers.
