You really need the rule book...

WS= Weapon Skill
BS= Ballistic Skill
S= Strength
T= Toughness
W= Wounds
I= Initiative
A= Attacks
LD= Leadership
Sv= Saving throw.


The other question has to do with rules, and I don't think it can be answered due to this forum's policy about posting that sort of thing.

Again, you really need a rulebook. You should get one before you go any further.

Hi, firstly welcome to the forums!

the problem here is that we have to be careful what we sya here so that it doesn't count as giving rules out (which is against copywright) the rulebook will answer all of these questions for you, but the WS,BS,S,T,W,I,A,Ld and S are all abbreviations of

weapon skill, ballistic skill, strength, toughness, wounds, initiative, attacks, leadership and (armour)save

[edit:]

dang! all-father beat me to it!
