    In the main rulebook, read about Ordnance Barrages.

    For other weapons, read their description in the respective codex. Example: Space Marine Codex (newest version) page 41, see under "Ranged Weapons" and "Type". If the weapon pins, it says there.

    Right, so barrages ect pin, as do SR's....

    As for checking in the codex, looked in the IG codex and cant any reference to pinning in the weapons sheet at the back...

    so is it just barrages and SR's that pin?

    i know...im stupid.....

    No, there are other weapons, but you'll have to check the codices of the other races for details. We are not allowed by GW to post rules on fansites, you see. (COPYRIGHT AND LEGAL INFORMATION)

    The current edition is the fourth. If Your rules are either the hardcover book with a skull and a hammer on the cover, or the small rulebook from the Battle of Macragge boxed set (Tyranids and Space Marines), You have the most recent rules and are good to go. (Y)

    Grey Book is 4th edition, u r cool with it.

    As previously stated, pinning weapons are described as such in their corresponding codex.
