A quick unit comparison

Post by Daeron »

I don't think I ever posted this, but I once made a quick performance measure for all of our units. It's not the end-all-be-all comparison, of course. For that, I'd recommend people to use http://tools.druchii.net
Synergies and the number of models you bring in combat can make these performances change dramatically. But it's a quick little overview.

10 Dreadspears:

I love me a bowl of numbers to crunch for breakfast. If you need anything theoryhammered, I gladly take requests.

Sorry, but what do the numbers and colours mean?

Right. I'm so busy with the numbers sometimes that I forget the basics ;)

The numbers show the performance, or expected damage done for each unit. The colours show the most reliable outcome. For example, the 10 Dreadspears:

They will do 1 to 3 damage most of the time (green). The blue part simply makes sure the scale is the same for all units, or it could be seen as "you can be quite sure they'll do this or more damage". The red part shows unlikely but still attainable outcomes. So, occasionally they might do up to 5 damage, but I wouldn't count on it.

All measures are done against a 4+ Save opponent.
