Let's say, that a Nordgaard player completely obscures Fjellgangr's (SV 3) base with a unit of Fjell warriors (SV 1) all within 2" of him, does the Fjellgangr benefit from cover when being shot?

I can't find anything in the rulebook that would say no (maybe I'm just blind), but this would be pretty strange for dwarves to act as an effective cover for a giant.

They give him +2 def against enemy shots.
Actually that is Fjell Warriors primary objective in 1st and 2nd round Smile

I'm not really sure that makes sense fluff-wise... Then again, it doesn't have to Tongue

Maybe dwarfs are small but they have great spirit and that's why they can cover even a giant Tongue

At pag. 76 in the paragraph "shooting over models" it's stated that a model with higher sight value than the screening model does not benefit from screening or cover. However in the latest errata this was changed and now the screening/cover modifier is applied.

He indeed gets cover. And note that he is a small giant as the model suggests as well... Wink
