Default Ordnance 1 question

A question popped into my mind regarding Ordnance 1 weapons, are they large blast? If not, do you roll to hit with scatter or as normal?

Its something I have been unable as of yet to get answered, and if you could please help it would be most appreciated!

It is regarding the Valkyrie rocket/missile.

Indeed it is large blast and is resolved like it but it can get 2D6 for armour penetration.

Ordnance rolls 2D6 and choose the highest, right?

Wrong.


Ordnance 1 blast

is a large template.

Ordnance 1 (such as found on the valks missiles)

use the 2d6 (take higher) armor pen rule but are NOT blast weapons. as such roll to hit.

To clarify;

Ordnance - roll 2D6 and pick the highest for armour penetration.

Ordnance Blast, or Ordnance Barrage always use the large blast marker. However, just plain old Ordnance does not.

The_Prophet is right, they just receive the Ordinance penetration rule. Look at the Ordinance Summary chart in the back of the Guard Codex. All of the other Ordinance weapons state that they have a Large Blast, but not the Hellstrikes.

Someone at our LGS had been claiming that somewhere in the rules that all Ordinance gained a large Blast, such as while using the Hellstrike Missiles. The 'rules' that he was referring to was a clarification or rumor from who knows where about all Ordinance Blast means the weapon is supposed to have a Large Blast. So maybe some others heard and thought the same.
