View Full Version : Odds for Charges

'sup, just calculated the odds for making each type of charge in 6th-edition and made a chart out of it. Hope it will be helpful for you, feel free to share it anywhere you want.

Note that I've calculated the optimal odds for fleet charges, if you choose re-roll sub-optimal the odds will of course be worse.

How did you do the calculations with fleet? Being able to reroll one or both makes my brain implode

It's quite simple, but it took some time.

For example a fleet charge of 9" has the following odds.

There is a 10/36 chance to make the charge without re-rolls. There is a 4/36 to roll a 6 without making the charge, so then you save the 6. (i.e. 6+1, 6+2, 1+6 and 2+6). There is a 6/36 chance to roll a 5. There is a 7/36 chance to roll a 4 and a 9/36 chance to not roll a 4,5 or 6 (then you want re-roll both dice)

= 10/36+(4/36*2/3)+(6/36*1/2)+(7/36*1/3)+(9/36*10/36)= 56,94%

It's even more variables with fleet charges through difficult terrain, but if you know the logic behind it's not that difficult to calculate.

Thanks for sharing this! I never could be bothered figuring the maths to 40K but then there are people like you to help us lazy bums out!
