Default ordanance or glancing?

Suppose a Defilers battle cannon hits a eldar skimmer that moved 7 inches but still manages to break through the armor. It says in the bbb that if ordanace beat armor value you roll on that chart....so do you roll ordanace or glancing?

My marshal told me to tell you to say that to his face.....

A skimmer moving over 6" ALWAYS renders all hits as glancing.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Does the ordanance still roll 2d6 and take the highest as the result?

Yes, except for against wave serpents - because of the power field.

Of course, but that's all you'll likely get against a switched on Eldar player.

If you don't believe him check the FAQ on the GW web site.

Remember, it only does this with the penetration dice, not with the damage result.
