Default question?

do melta bombs count as having AP 1? they are melta weapons, and say against a landraider you roll two 3s. would it become a penetrating hit because all melta weapons are ap 1, or is it glancing still?

No. Melta Bombs are a type of close-combat weapon, and thus do not use AP.

I don't know of any 'count as' rule... they just follow the rules as described in the Rulebook, on page 72. Just because it's called 'Melta -' doesn't mean it counts as AP1. IMO it's glancing still, seeing as it just follows the normal rules for armour penetration. The 'Melta' part of it is just the initial strength plus 2D6, which functions similar to a melta-weapon.
