Default Question about Eldar wargear

I was playing a small game vs one of my friends who plays eldar. His fireprism gravtank had a holo-field on it which made me roll two d6s on the damage chart and use the lowest roll. The problem is that I used my fusion blaster (which gets two d6 vs vehicles), the problem was nobody knew how to resolve the rolls. (We were playing at his house so we couldn't ask anyone). What we finally did was roll four dice and use the lowest two........Is this right?

The Fusion Blasters 2d6 are for armor penetration only , not rolls on the damage charts.
I'm not very up to date on the Eldar (no real players in the area). So does the Holo-field have a effect on the armour pen roll or the damage result roll?

You roll your 2D6 to penetrate. That is used to penetrate the armour. This is the melta effect.


After penetrating his armour then only you do the next step , which is rolling the 2D6 for the damage and choose the lowest one. That is the holofield effect.

You do not mix them together. Never.

thanks then (not to be full of pride and such) i think the confusion was cause by my friend who was never specific with his rules (he didn't want to pull out his codex so i just gave him something to be happy about)
