No need for apologies, we welcome all questions new and old.

After you have rolled to hit you "select" a location on the template where you
would like your shot to land. Once you select the location roll the scatter
dice. These are two dice one that has 4 blank spaces and one with up and
another down. The second dice has also 4 blank spaces but with one left and
right. Blank spaces means no shift. Roll these dice and scatter from your
selected location. Sometimes the scatter takes you off the template, these are
complete misses. One the final scatter is determined thats the locale that
makes the armor save.

So if you went lets say for the head on a warlord titan and you roll two blanks
that means you hit the head right on. If you roll an UP and a blank that means
the shot went high missing the titan.

Clear enough?

Substitute two d6 dice each of a different color as follows:

2-5 blank space or no scatter

Second d6:

2-5 No scatter

This will recreate those dice in the same manner. You could contact GW mail
order to see if they still have these dice available.

Feel free to ask as much as you want as much as you feel necessary.

Happy Gaming!
