Default Template help

Hey I'm new to IG but not to Warhammer40k. I just got the IG codex and was looking through it when I saw that all the ordinance weapons where just listed as "blast" weapons. But I've seen many people using large blast template when they field Basilisks and/or Leman Russes. Were they cheating or is this some new rule they came out with? Also, if they are large blast then would the mortar weapon also be large blast?

One more thing: I couldn't find answers to this is "frequently asked questions" but if it has been posted before i apologize.

Earthshakers, battle cannons and Demolisher cannons are ordnances so they get the Large Blast Template. Hope that clear things up for you :P

Perhaps more to the point, you should note that all ordnance weapons use the large blast marker unless otherwise specified, not just those listed above by Zen. This is noted on page 29 under ordnance weapons. Conversely, all other weapons that have the 'blast' characteristic use the small blast marker unless otherwise specified. In cases of non-ordnance weapons using the large marker (e.g. Railgun submunitions), they will specifically say 'large blast' or 'ordnance template' or some such.
