I have a few questions regarding the orbital strikes for Daemonhunters.
1 - Can the specific piece of terrain change each turn? Or does it have to be the same bit of terrain for the entire game?
2 - When placing the ordanance marker how much of the template has to touch the bit of terrain?
3 - Do you have to tell your opponent what bit of terrain the orbital strike is coming from.
1. no it has to be same terrain all game.
2. I believe the center only.
3. Well when it finally comes in yes. Before that no but you do need to write it down.
I believe the Daemonhunter's Q&A say that the you must cover the terrain as closely as possible. It also says that you can choose any terrain peice you want though, including that river spanning the whole board. Heh, good stuff.
You can put the ordnance template anywhere as long as part of it is touching the terrain peice (the center of the ord does not have to touch)
Daemonhunter Q&A(hope there's no copyright problem, this is on the GW site)If the terrain feature is too small to contain an Ordnance Blast template, try to get as much of the template on the terrain feature as possible
I'm assuming that even if the terrain feature is big enough for the template you must place it entirely on the terrain feature, then it scatters.
However, you can choose a terrain feature that spans the entire board. If I choose a river, say, and choose to place the template anywhere on the terrain piece. If the river was wider at one section than everywhere else that would mean you can ONLY place the template in that one spot. That goes against the idea of the orbital strike and the Q&A that says it can be placed anywhere within the terrain piece.I'm assuming that even if the terrain feature is big enough for the template you must place it entirely on the terrain feature, then it scatters
Basically you select a point anywhere on the terrain piece that you want the strike to land. You must then place the template so that it includes that point plus as much of the terrain feature as possible.
