Default Soulstorm Psychic power ??

Does the Soulstorm Psychic power scatter like any other blast weapon used in the shooting phase? I find nothing about psychic blast attacks in the rule book and am hoping it does not scatter. I have horrible luck with ordinance scattering so I do not use them. Would hate to add this to my do not use list.

It scatters like any normal blast weapon.

In addition, you don't subtract it by your ballistic skill. Sorry!

Really. I have to look at them again. I swore you could subtract the bs from the choir. I know moo can't hit anything unless the opposing army literally take up the whole field. But for the amount of points I don't see why not.

It's just the way psychic blasts work. Same goes for eldritch storm. You just have to hope for a hit or a low scatter.

Could we get some clarification on this? I don't have my codex on my atm but I believe the weapon profile says ordnance blast, and ordance blasts are scattered with a minus from the BS.

I have minused the ballistic skill loads of times and not once have I been questioned even by other veteran guard players too. I would like clarification on this aswell.

A psychic shooting attack, unless otherwise specified, follows all of the normal rules for shooting attacks. Meaning blast templates use the normal scatter rules. Soulstorm has nothing that circumvents this - you will scatter and reduce BS as normal.

Everybody at my LGC said I couldn't subtract my scatter distance from my Farseer's BS. I didn't care because I got a direct hit and blew up the guy's devilfish.

On inspection of the rulebook, yeah. You do subtract the BS. Woot!
