the way I read it a rail weapon with a RoF higher than 1 will place as many templates as the Rof.


This is the correct way. Never read it any other way.

Not exactly as many templates, but one template with number of hits equal to ROF on every target under it. Same flamer or shotgun. FOF>1 does not mean you can place various flamer templates, but that everything under one template receives two or more hits.

The way I read it rail weapons are treated just like ordinary shooting attacks when it comes to RoF, with primary and secondary targets. So you can shoot at different targets, each shot will draw an imaginary 1mm thick line to it's target and hit everything under it.

If it should be handled as a flamer then the rules should say so. Also, there should be no mention of secondary targets.

I didn't mean the rail rules, I was just saying how templates work. If rail is treated like templates that would be the case.

Quote Rulebook:
Quote:
If the RS test is successful, draw an imaginary line from the Model making the Ranged Attack Towards the Primary Target (and any
Secondary Targets if the ROF is higher than 1)
to the maximum Weapon Range. This imaginary line is the Rail.
Treat the Rail as a 1mm wide template.


So its both: First you draw a number of lines equal to RoF, then each one is treated as a template where everyone except the primary target is hit on 1-10

Btw.: Only flamer place their template once and hit every model touch as often as their RoF. Shotguns on the other hand have no such special rule and place their template as often as their RoF is.
