Default ordinance blast question

I play tau and play against mostly marines and eldar so I don't see too many ordinance blast weapons.

My question is that do all ordinance blast weapons count as large blast or does it need to specify large blast for it to be large blast? From the codex reference sheets that I have seen, I have noticed that ordinance weapons have sometimes been classified as both blast and large blast weapons.
(example / space marine demolisher Range 24 Str 10 AP 2 Ord. 1/Large Blast
/ necron particle whip Range 24 Str 9 AP 3 Ord. 1/Blast )

Do ordinance blast weapons actually count as ordinance large blast weapons or are they still just regular blast?

If it says blast/large blast/ordnance they are the larger blast template.

If it says small blast it is the smaller blast template.

Hope that helps!

Just wait until Apocolipse comes out, mega blast template, vortex grenade template, quad templates.... larger flame templates(24" long, 8" at the widest point) > >

Only in the case of ordnance weapons though. This rule doesn't extend to all weapons with 'Blast' in their stat line. Eg. Missile launchers are 'blast' weapons, but they use the small blast template.

To make it clear...

Template = Flame Template.

Blast Weapon = Small Blast Marker, unless specified otherwise.

Ordnance = Large Blast Marker.


So, if you see "Ord. 1 Blast", it means it is an Ordnance weapon, so you use the Large Marker. If it says "Heavy 1 Blast", it is a Blast Weapon, and uses the small marker.
