    Railguns

    NOw don't bite my head off if it's a stupid question, but i'm a stupid guy(as repeatdly told by many friends and family) The Railgun's 2nd option of shooting with submmlition attack. It is an ordance attack.. so does it scatter, IN the rule book it says so, but i remember reading somewhere that Railgun's ordance does not scatter. Of course that could just be my fantasy making up false memories :lol:

    The Railgun's submunitions shot is not an ordinance weapon. It just uses the ordinance template to determine how many models are hit.

    the submunition round is like a big Missile Luancher with Frag. Roll to hit, then place template.

    Also note that GW tried to clear up this problem by no longer referring to the larger of theblast templates as the ordnance template. In the 4th Ed Black Book, it is now simply referred to as the large blast template. People, of course, still refer to it as the ordnance template (or the pie plate, my term of choice), but the ruebook did do a pretty good job of clearing it up.

    Well, the problem is that while the new Rulebook clears things up, there are alot of codices using the old terminology.
    Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
    Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

    It does not scatter as to fire it you use the tank's bs skill
