Sorry, but I don't agree with this. I've fired at an OverLord before with
my Shokks with the full consent of my opponent. If the Snotlings missed in
anyway at all, then they fell to their deaths. Otherwise they either tried
to tear the Overlord apart or they materialised inside its structure and the
physical law that no two particles of matter can occupy the same point in
space at the same time came into play and the thing blew up. We both
thought it was fair and it was also the only target this particular SAG
could see and shoot at. I laughed very hard when I rolled a "Hit" and a
double six. We still play with those rules for them (I've never hit the
buggers again! Can you say skydiving snotlings?).
