Default psyker battle squad - soulstorm power, does it scatter?

the psyker battle squads main power is the soulstorm which is large blast, but as a psykic power does it scatter like normal or does the blast radiate from the targeted model?

Unless it says otherwise, blast(s) scatter.

How is it worded, if it's just that doing it?

Psychic shooting attacks just count as firing a ranged weapon, and they have no special rule saying that it does not scatter, so that means scatter. I suppose that the unconstrained energies of the warp would be just as hard to aim as a grenade launcher or the like, if not harder, so it makes sense in a fluff sense as well.

I actually had a question pop up with this as well:

Since the strength of the attack is determined by the number of Sanctioned psykers in the squad, if you roll a double-1, will the strength then be the REMAINING number of psykers, or the origional count?
