Ignoring Concealing Terrain

Question

I can't understand this wording.

Quote

If a sight line drawn to a model passes through Concealing Terrain, that model has Concealment. When drawing sight lines, a model in Concealing Terrain may ignore that terrain’s Concealing trait if any single sight line drawn between the two objects passes through 1" or less of that terrain.

Does it mean model can ignore concealment while standing inside of terrain and 1" or less from its closest border? Or just 1" from any side?

In which cases on this image model A can ignore Concealment?

situation 1 is the only one where Model A could ignore concealing.

In situation 2 no sight line only passes through 1 " of the terrain, and in situation 3 its not a model in concealing terrain.

It helps me to think of a rifleman lurking at the edge of the woods to shoot a foe in a field.  The rifleman has stuff to hide behind but there isn`t enough stuff in the way to obscure his shot. Any deeper than 1" though and it gets tougher to see through the thick.

What will happen if both models stay inside the same Concealing terrain? They both can't ignore it when targeting each other (distance between them is unnecessary)?

If they're both in the same concealing terrain, you still run the exact same logic checks.

1) Does a sight line pass through the concealing terrain? Yes

Concealing might apply.  Let's check to see if we get to ignore it.  I'm using attacker and defender here, but it doesn't actually matter who's targeting who.

1) Is the attacker in the concealing terrain? Yes

2) Does even a single sight line pass through 1" or less of the terrain? (AKA: Are the two models within 1" of each other) Depends.

So if the two models are within an inch, they don't get concealment from each other.  If they aren't within an inch, they do get concealment (assuming the action cares about concealment).

Situation 1 the model would still have concealment as you are only ignoring the concealing trait for a single sight line(the sight line from the furthest edge of the model to the edge of the terrain), but that rest of the models base that is on the side of model B would still be drawing sight lines that go through more than 1" of terrain.

It doesn't say all sight lines need to be within 1" of the edge; it says "any single sight line."

Oops, you're right. Misread "if" as "for". What I get for reading too quickly.
