However, I had no idea how to make this work, so we agreed for that game to make it count as an ordnance shot.

We are suggesting a ship fire it's WB's as timed rounds to create a screen between two vessels. Well, that is incredibly hard to do. Besides getting the placement and distance right, you have to hope the rounds fired into enough of a density to create a screen thick enough to interfere with a targeting computer.

...We can do this now, actually.  Just take a standard airburst round and instead of metal shrapnel load it with metallic chaff. 

I would have it as a 'once per game' thing to represent the fact that it's not a standard munition.

As far as Sig goes... dammit, people meet him, fifty secs later, have the same opinion of him that I do after years of arguing with him...

Are you saying you're slow?

I'm saying I'm fairly tolerant and it takes me a while to take offense compared to a lot of people.

Right, slow.

Have you considered creating a new  round that needs to pass a ld check to be loaded, then can shoot "smoke" at half the normal range of the WB  and then needs another check to re-load normal ammo? maybe you have so if that is the case ignore this.. 

or you can plainly ignore it ...

Blowing smoke is not a bad idea, reminds me a bit of one of the refits.

Evasive Jets. The hull of the vessel is studded with powerful short-burn engines which allow it to drastically turn to avoid incoming fire. At the start of the enemy shooting phase, the ship may take a Leadership test. If it is passed, the ship may make a single 45 turn immediately. However, the ship may not go on to special orders during the next turn.
I don't make the rules, I just think them up and write them down.

I think a 'once per battle' munition that costs, say, 5 points? would work. 

Beehive Round would be a good name for it.

I'd also suggest that if its a special round, it has a maximum deployable range of 15cm or 30cm. Otherwise you have an option I don't think anyone's considered yet of deliberately seeding the opposing fleet's travel path with blast markers if you have 60cm guns (I know the effectiveness of that is debatable, but you could try boxing in eldar or preventing slow BBs from turning).  I know you can in theory do this with nova cannon anyway, but I'd want to see this used defensively.

I like this, I think it should be a rules, to represent once ingame, but if say the opponent purchases it for the entire fleet? or for each cap ship?

only read some of the first posts

Its a good idea, but i'd only allow it, if the other player is targeting asteroids, dust lcouds, ect

you could make a rule for some sort of special amunition that detonates and creates a "smoke screen" of sorts
theres no such thing as over kill, its just making sure
