The Warp Blast hive mind power is of type "Assault 1 Blast" and the book says "a standard to hit roll is required for the creature to get the blast on target." Is this a standard artillery to hit roll (i.e. scatter dice) or is it a standard to-hit roll on a d6? And presumably if I fail the roll it's not "on target" -- does it go off-target somehow or does the attack just fail?
Warp Blast is treated exactly like any normal blast weapon, such as a Plasma Cannon or a Frag Missile. The only weapons that scatter are either Ordnance weapons and weapons with the Barrage characteristic. Warp Blast is an Assault weapon and doesn't have the Barrage characteristic so it doesn't scatter.
Ostsol is 100% correct. The bug looks at the enemy, has a brain spasm and the enemy explodes. End of story.Originally Posted by Ostsol
Don't worry, it's only kinky the first time...
Indeed. Only ordnance weapons use the scatter dice, but don't forget that your opponent doesnt have to take the models out from under the template, just the number that got killed by the blast. Stops you using them as sniper weapons to kill veteran sergeants or heavy weapon troopers.
Guess weapons and artillery scatter too (ok most of them are ordenace but some use the smal blast and some use the template).
Don't forget that you MUST center the blast on one model.
Those weapons are barrage weapons, If I am not mistaken.Originally Posted by zhaf

Correct. There is no such thing as a "Guess" weapon anymore.Originally Posted by justinb67

This means You actually have slight leeway with placing Blast markers, and means it's a bit easier to score a few extra partials or perhaps even a solid hit.
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
wait what about spore mines does their rule of centering the ordanance blast marker on the spore mine superstead the center it on an enemy model rule? ( im tlkin bout when a enemy shot within 2'' of it causing it to automatically explode not when it touches an enemy modle in base 2 base contact.)
Cool... thanks... then I can kill some more models for every WBlast hit .Originally Posted by Uzi-99
But what about the centerng rule? When does it aply?... I'm shure I've heared that and my opponents have said it when I've used Warpblasts.Ordenace weapons scatter... so you can't choose exactly where they land... except of when you score a "hit" on the scatter dice and then you can place the OrdBlast marker where ever you want.Originally Posted by insomnia
I don't think that the centering rule aplies to ordenace weapons or spore mines.
