Default Auspex?

Ok, so this is clarifying a disagreement at an earlier game:

Quote:
AUSPEX: ... If enemy infiltrators set up within 4D6" of a model with an auspex, then that model is allowed to take a 'free' shot at them ... The normal shooting rules apply.
What about line of sight? An infiltrating unit can only set up 18" or further away; the average 4D6 roll will be only 14", max is 24". If line of sight applies, the chances that the Auspex may be worthwhile is very, very slim: not only must your opponent be very brave, but you must also role very well. Odds are much better if LoS does not apply--as if the auspex worked while the units were moving into these positions.

I think they make it like this because if they like automatically hit them or had a very good chance it would be too unfair.

It does what you would expect it to do for 2 points. But if it does world you can have an entire tac squad getting a free round of shooting.
