    Whirlwind and guessing range?

    I haven't played a Space Marine army since the latest set of rules came out so I need you to bear with me when I ask this. I've dicided to take a Whirlwind and rember that with the old rules they were guess range weapons(you guess the range you want the shot to go at the start of shooting and it scaters from there) but I can't find any rules for guess weapons. The codex says that it has a range of 12"-48"G but as far as I can tell the G means that it counts as a Barrage weapon(p.31 of the rule book). It even says that you pick any target within range and center the the blast on a model. Now im hopeing that they did away with guess range weapons, it is the future after all. They should have guidance systems, laser sights, and what not, but if im reading this wrong I could realy use a heads up.

    12"-48" G stands for guess range; first being minimum range and the second the maximum. This does not imply that its a barrage weapon, this is usually explictly stated when it is in fact a barrage weapon.

    Firing sequence:
    1. Chose a target (model)
    2. Messure if its in range (otherwise it automaticly fails)
    3. Throw the scatter dice
    4. Look where it lands and who is hit (inc. partial-rolls)
    5. Roll to wound
    6. Opponent rolls for armour saves (if possible)

    There ya go.

    Errrm...if you have a look at P.28 BGB under "Maximum Range", it mentions what to do if a range has a "G" next to it and states very clearly that these weapons are Barrage Weapons.

    The second part of Prittstift's sequence should include the *placing* of the Blast marker before the measuring to it: this is the Guess Part of the weapon's range. You estimate if your target, upon which you have placed the marker, is within the parameters of the weapon's stated ranges. Some Barrage weapons have a Min-Max range, others are just Max Range.

    Hope this helped a little.

    Bs?

    Are you saying that Ordnance weapons do not have to check BS when they fire? If so, could someone please provide a citation?

    Follow the instructions on p29 for firing Ordnance, step by step. Nowhere does it tell you to roll to hit using Ballistic skill. You just use the scatter dice.
