Woah, that'd demolish most/all of the board (which, though it's fluffy, would annoy the everyone a lot)! It's D3+3 inches, though this is just the radius, so you're always gonna get a bigger-than the large blast template.

Uhm. No. D3 + 3".

" means inches. ' would be feet.

At least you didn't this this at your LGS, haha. I can only imagine the look on your opponents face when you tell him your blast radius is 5 feet.

Actually you probably can't launch it as your not allowed to have your own guys under the template. maybe if you squished your entire army in one corner and the blast in another.

play an apocalypse battle against nid swarms...on a massively massive table...and aim the middle of the blast in the opposite corner so it JUST misses you.
