Default Re: FW Effectiveness

Wow, useful info! *I wish I could nominate you for 10 karma for doing the math on all this. *Is it okay with you if I print this off, or save it to a Word document and add a little bit to it as I see fit?

Maybe *someday we can do a write up like this based on all the units, then put it in a nifty little computer program.

Also, and this is something I'm going to do anyway, a mock battle based on averages would be a nice thing to have too. *Like, do the math on one squad of FWs against one squad of SMurfs starting from max range and ending with the SM assault into CC. *I'd like to see how the numbers work out on that.... actually.... *Let me do it right now.

FW full squad vs SM full squad w/ Bolters

Tau Turn 1 - Range 30"
12 FW / 10 SM

12 shots
6 hits
4 wounds
1 dies (rounding to nearest integer)

SM Turn 1 - Range 24"
12 FW / 9 SM

Cannot fire, moved.

Tau Turn 2 - Range 24"
12 FW / 9 SM

12 shots
6 hits
4 wounds
1 dies (rounding to nearest integer)

SM Turn 2 - Range 18"
12 FW / 8 SM

Cannot fire, moved.

Tau Turn 3 - Range 18"
12 FW / 8 SM

12 shots
6 hits
4 wounds
1 dies (rounding to nearest integer)

SM Turn 3 - Range 12"
12 FW / 7 SM

14 shots
9.3 hits
6.2 wounds
3 die

Here you have to check morale. *I'll continue, assuming the FWs don't break.

Tau Turn 4 - Range 12"
9 FW / 7 SM

18 shots
9 hits
6 wounds
2 die (rounding to nearest integer)

SM Turn 4 - Range Base to Base
9 FW / 5 SM

SM win in initiative:
10 attacks
7 *hit
4 wound
2 die

FW strike back:
7 attacks
2 hit
0 wound

FW lose combat.

Hmm, that's pretty interesting. *Here are the numbers that prove just how bad one squad of FWs is against one squad of SMs. *However. *They DID take the SMs down to half strength before getting assaulted. *I hope this was a useful addendum to Lethal Hobo's KILLER post...

And Ahstbn, the Sisters have one less toughness than the SMs, meaning the Sisters have a HIGHER casualty rate Notice the deaths on the SMs are .3 LOWER than the Sisters. I think you might have gotten a little bit turned about there
