Q1: An Earthshaker gun with the Indirect Fire-upgrade is known to many to be a formidable weapon against troops hiding away from LOS, but what happens when a line of fire CAN be drawn from it to the target? Can it fire a normal ordinance blast using the Earthshaker's non-barrage stats and without the extra D6 for scatter? I find the "...if fired in this way..." line in the IG codex a bit vague. <_<
Q2: What if a Basilisk with the Indirect Fire-upgrade moved and fired in the same turn? The Earthshaker gun could obviously not fire a ordinance barrage in this way, but would it still be considered an ordinance barrage weapon if a line of fire could be drawn to the target, as in Q1? Once again, the "...if fired in this way..." line haunts me. :ph34r:
Thanks in advance.
Q1: Yes, if you take the indirect fire upgrade you can either fire as an Ordnance barrage (remember the 36" minimum range) or, if you have LoS to the unit, as a direct Ordnance.
Q2: If it moved, it could obviously not fire indirectly. But it could still fire a normal Ordnance shot, but it would roll another D6 for scatter (and pick highest), since it moved.
NB: note that "ordnance" does not have an 'i' in it.

Ah, great. Thank you Anacron, you just made everything perfectly understandable. I wish GW could be that clear sometimes. ^_^
Oh and about the ordnance spelling... English is not my main language and i just spelled it the way i pronounced it. Which propably was wrong as well.
