Whomever told you that, is wrong.

You most certainly still have cover saves (if you qualify as having one) if ordnance comes down on a unit.

Why wasn't your post in the Main 40k thread though vs. this (4th edition) IG one?

Well, I need to know for fourth edition specifically, and it seemed people were asking questions here, so I thought it would be fine. Sorry, if I misunderstood, and thanks for the help though.

Hmm, that does make sense. I was just unused to people still playing 4th (even occasionally).

In that case, your friend is still wrong. Ordnance never removed a cover save, even in 4th.

I was under the impression that you took it as if the shells were coming down, so if your models were under tress then i would give a over save; but if they were in a marsh...

a shell explodes outwards when it hits the ground so you're supposed to take it that the circle counts as the point where the shell landed and then the blast fans out from that point not down on-top of the models The guys I play with use a hose rule that unless the area terrain provides something that could shield the models from the bast wave and shrapnel like rocks, trees, ruined walls or craters they dont get a cover save tall grass or marshy ground wont stop a shrapnel from getting you

edit* sorry for grave digging I forgot to look at the date on last post
