"IG Weapons Analysis", or "Doing the math"...

  • In case anyone is interested, I have a work in progress (this is the first draft) of a little table I made up for my own reference.

    A few notes first; one must remember, the numbers can be deceiving if you don't interpret them correctly.
    Also, this is the first draft, so there may be errors, and if anyone has any suggestions (like a better layout to fit more info in a smaller space without making it look even worse) please go ahead and suggest  :P

    Anyway, here's the link;

    http://www.zsuatt.org/~cobras2/IG%20Weapons%20Math%20Analysis.htm

    Hopefully it will be usefull to y'all. There are a couple other notes at the top of the page.
    "Let another man praise the, and not thine own mouth" - Proverbs 27:2a
    "He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding" - Proverbs 14:29a

    The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese - patience, grasshopper.

  • Ok... so what do the numbers represent again?

    What's a "110" for Autocannon mean for example?

  • 110 means, well, 110% chance of scoring a wound, or in other words, on average 1.1 wounds will be scored against that target with that weapon.

  • Hey Cobras2 do you mind if I print this out to take a look at, and probably use in some practice games?

  • Aaaaagh the numbers lol. But now I'm serious, nicely done. Did you do all this math? If yes then good job (if no good job to the person who did it ;)). This can prove very useful in making lists against specific armies.

  • well i'll have to clap hands for the amount of time you've wasted on the damn table! Is it homemade statistic? I mean is it a result from your games?

  • Of course it's NOT "statistics from his games". It's just the average result you get from a weapon every time you use it. Simple math......
