Default A Question on Poison

In the new Space Marine Codex, the Hellfire rounds are listed as having the following trait: Poison, 2+. What does this mean, exactly?

They are poisoned attacks that wound any model hit on a 2+.

It also means that the re-roll to wound when hitting a target with a Toughness equal to or less than their Strength, though I'm not sure if Hellfire Rounds have a Strength now (I'm pretty sure they do).

Hellfire Rounds have no Strength.

The "re-roll to wound" rule only really applies in close combat; most (if not all) shooting weapons that use Poisoned attacks have no Strength value.

Fair enough. Thanks for the correction.
