Is unit coherency measured base edge to base edge or same point to same point? With 20 units would you be able to stretch 40" total, or 60" total? Also with the 3" blast template does that mean you automatically threaten any unit using the hit model as a coherency point?
Thanks.
It is measured from edge to edge - there is a diagram in the BGB that explains this, I believe.
As a result, the ordnance template (5") should cover roughly three models if the target unit is in a single line, while the blast template will likely only cover one in the same scenario.

As Rork said, its measured edge to edge. If you put them in a single line maxing out the 2" between each model, if one is killed from a template, then the answer is Yes, you would now loose coherency.
There are also certain things in the game that can single out a model. Eldar Mind War comes to mind.
Actually, the Large blast template is just under 5". So its possible to set up your unit in coherancy and only have 1 model hit by the large blast.Originally Posted by Rork
So lets continue to assume set up as a strait line.Originally Posted by Rork
Is the 2" from a unit in CC rule based upon the same edge to edge rule(E2E), or Pt to Pt(P2P)? So that if you assault one end of the line there are only two models you can inflict wounds upon(E2E), or can you only inflict a wound upon the model in base to base(P2P)? (assuming no leaping)
Sorry I didn't look these up in the book, at work and had a dicussion with a friend about it.
Yes, you can only kill models within 2" in assault, so therefore charging one model into the end model of another unit will mean the most you can kill is two models.

Cele's example is correct.
Keep in mind, the 2" for assaulting is measured from the base of your own model that is in base to base. So if model A is in BTB, then you measure 2" from say, the back side of model A's base to any other of your models.
So essentially, any model that is 2" from edge to edge of model A, can be hit and can hit back, in an assault.
not true.Originally Posted by InnuitFireman
The templete is exactly 5".
as a model is .98 inches base, or 1 inch to round it, and a model must be within 2 inches of that, that gives us the most that you can be apart is 2.49 inches, still being clipped as a partial under the large templete.
If you argue against this, then you've been spacing your units out too far.
My armies:
16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
1,500+ of Legion (just started)
You're right. I dunno how I got the idea that the blast was under 5", oops.Originally Posted by tarzen
I believe that the small blast is slightly under three inches diameter. Perhaps you were mixing it up with that.
