1 | This sheet contains calculations for the average wounds per turn for a variety of units and weapons, firing against a variety of test-dummies. The stats for the attacker are on the left, while the average wounds are on the right, with the test-dummy chart further to the right in each case. Below the primary chart, you will find a second chart, which displays average points per wound per turn for each matchup. In the case of units with multiple weapons, they will have a listing for each separate weapon at the top chart, and listings on the bottom chart for firing different combinations of weapons. If a unit can only have one weapon equipped at a time, (or extra weapons cost nothing), the cost in the table is the cost of unit + weapon of interest. If a unit has weapon combinations, the costs listed for each weapon is for only the weapon itself, though the cost of the unit is factored into the cost-efficiency in the lower table. In the cost-calculations table, if the full wargear for a given unit isn't specified, assume that any options not specified are left at their default state. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but instead is using choice bits from each faction I work on. Provided on this page is the full formula I use, such that you can do your own calculations for anything I haven't covered already. Do note that more efficient does not always mean better, as the points-efficiency chart does not take into account factors such as range, durability of the unit or mobility. Context will always be important, units do not exist in a vacuum. These charts are simply intended to give you ballparks for what you can expect when you use a particular unit to attack at a particular target, and approximately how expensive that firepower is relative to alternatives. Happy math-hammering! -Chart Anon | |||||||||||||||||||||||||

40 | To one Anonymous Wolverine: CSM FW is an option for next project, but I feel a bit weird about starting real work on FW when there are factions like Tyranids still not done. I'll consider it. If I did CSM FW, what specific subset would you be interested in? | |||||||||||||||||||||||||

41 | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

42 | To one Anonymous Koala: Hellforged FW CSM is officially the top of my FW to-do list! (I may tackle a couple of the remaining Index factions first) | |||||||||||||||||||||||||

43 | To one Anonymous Dolphin: Ah, I did make a mistake on Asurmen's shooting! I had one shot, where it should have been two. Should be fixed now, thanks! | |||||||||||||||||||||||||

44 | To one Anoymous Chipmunk: I have definitely been known to make mistakes, and frequently make corrections based on such errors being pointed out in the chat. However, I'm not clear on how the Pulse Carbine vs TEQ line is incorrect; To-hit 4+ is 1/2, to-wound 3+ is 2/3, armor save is 1/6, volume of fire is 20, that equals 0.56. | |||||||||||||||||||||||||
