Have been looking at the entry for the demolition charge for the veteran squad and need some more direction on it. As it is an assault thing i understand i can still assault after, but more to do with the large blast bit, does that mean it has the potential to scatter 2D6-Balistic Skill making it a bit smegging useless or is it as long as it within 6" I can choose where it lands and it automatically lands there?
It's 2D6" - BS. So yes, it can scatter off of the target and/or right onto your squad. That's part of it's charm.

Unfortunately I believe that the demolitions charge is subject to the scatter. It is a large blast template weapon.

I see that as it blowing up in the guy's hands
Copy, Improve, Innovate
Which is why it is so much fun to do it with a maxed out special weapon squad. You'll probably die, but there will be dead marines (and equivalents) everywhere .
Praise the Emperor and pass the promethium!
When you hit a Termie squad with 3 flamers and a Demo charge though... awesome.
I love demo charges. Back in 4th I used to deepstrike flamer/demo squads, good old times...
Yes demo charges will scatter onto your own guys, but your target is probobly more important than your guardsmen anyway.

Demo charges are fun. You may end up blowing up your own guys, but hey, that's what keeps the game interesting. Besides, you're playing Imperial Guard! You're supposed to throw troops away! Just don't use them with desert themed armies. It has... unfortunate implications.
