Engineer shield breached and Grenadi ...
Here's the scenario: Dwarf vs Dwarf... 5 turns in to a game vs random player.
I have Engineer and Grenadier. Grenadier is shielded by Engineer.
Other player has pre-scrolled upgraded Gunner at entry point.
Their turn -- Two moves, then they are in splash damage range of my 2 units. Gunner takes their scrolled shot and KOs *both* my engineer and my Grenadier in that one AP -- even though the Grenadier was shielded. (Then gunner stomps both of my units. (sad face)
My question: is this expected behavior? I thought the shield offered one extra AP turn while it was "burst open." Other units would take the splash damage from the gunner of course. Subsequent AP could then be used to deal damage to the formerly shielded unit.
If this is the expected behavior then I am surprised I haven't seen it before.
Thanks for any insight. I have posted some screen shots of this happening to help others make sense.
(Note their gunner started on their entry tile so took two moves to get within range of my units.)
