In the last thread that was closed someone mentioned that Ordinance Barrage weapons are 2D6 and take the highest? Thats the same thing as ID right? Like firing my Defiler indirectly if it scatters you roll 2D6 and add them together or no? i've been playing it where you add them together... i've reread the codex but i am still slightly confused. It would pretty cool if you just rolled 2D6 and took the highest on indirect...
On a sidenote, I've heard some people say that Indirect Fire uses small blast template because it is Barrage... is this correct? I saw the other thread from October but there didn't appear to be any concensus. To me, it should still be the large blast template...
Indirect fire weapons are ordnance barrages - any weapon with a "G" in its range profile is a barrage weapon and follows those rules.
Being a barrage weapon does not affect the rules of the weapon itself. An indirect battlecannon still follows all the other rules for a battlecannon (for example).
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Not all indirect fire weapons are ordnance barrages. (Weapons that use the large blast template) But they do follow the rules regarding pinning, scatter, etc. For example, mortars, Lobbas, D-Cannons, Shadow Weavers, use the small blast template, but are still barrage weapons.
Ordnance weapons barrages (Indrect upgraded Earthshaker, indirect upgraded Defiler, whirlwind missiles) all use the large blast template. But vicitms under the template are a -1 Ld for their pinning test.
I don't know if I really helped, or if I confused you more. :wacko:
