    Melta bombs

    I can't see anywhere if melta bombs are AP1 (to add 1 to the damage result)
    It'd be logical that they are, but can anyone else clarify this for me?

    Close combat attacks do not have an AP value.

    Quoted for truth. Grenades are a special type of CC attack (at least, the anti-vehicle ones), so AP doesn't play in.

    Blast. I had worked that out for normal cc (And there's a difference between no AP and AP - )
    But thought someone may be able to guide me to a page that says: *All melta weapons are AP1, so melta bombs would be.

    It is a decent strain of thought that melta-bombs would be considered AP 1; however, as stated above CC attacks don’t have AP. Though perhaps in the case of melta-bombs they should.

    I think always hitting on the rear armour, and the fact you automatically hit if the vehicles hasn't move makes up for it... unless it's a walker of course.
