I understand most things about model attributes, but when do you use Ballistic Skill and Strength?

You use the Ballistic Skill when you fire a weapon. Depending on the character's skill # is what you have to roll to hit the person. ie: if BS is 1 then 6, 2 then 5, 3 then 4, ect. you can not have a roll to hit less than 2. you use strength in close combat.
