    Statistics Data Compilation

    So, I've got an idea. There are quite a few of us on the forums who are good with numbers, and could use a set of data for the various options in the game. So, what if we were to produce a set of statistics for various situations in the game, both in-battle and for list deisgn? I'll start it off.

    Disclaimer: This guide does not guarantee that you will roll what is listed. This is an aid, by giving you the number that the rolls tend towards. If you're here to give the old 'you might roll something different' line, just stop now.

    Imperial Guard Anti-Vehicle (excluding Ordnance) Weaponry, average amount of damage per weapon firing:

    Against AV10 Vehicles, firing with BS3
    Lascannon- .08 glances, .42 penetrates
    Autocannon- .17 glances, .5 penetrates
    Missile Launcher (Krak)- .08 glances, .33 penetrates
    Multilaser- .25 glances, .5 penetrates
    Heavy Bolter- .25 glances, .25 penetrates
    Best chance of destroying enemy vehicle: Multilaser
    Best chance of inflicting damage: Multilaser

    Against AV11 Vehicles, firing with BS3
    Lascannon- .08 glances, .33 penetrates
    Autocannon- .17 glances, .33 penetrates
    Missile Launcher (Krak)- .08 glances, .25 penetrates
    Multilaser- .25 glances, .25 penetrates
    Heavy Bolter- .25 glances
    Best chance of destroying enemy vehicle: Autocannon
    Best chance of inflicting damage: Multilaser/Autocannon

    Against AV12 Vehicles, firing with BS3
    Lascannon- .08 glances, .25 penetrates
    Autocannon- .17 glances, .17 penetrates
    Missile Launcher (Krak)- .08 glances, .17 penetrates
    Multilaser- .25 glances
    Best chance of destroying enemy vehicle: Lascannon
    Best chance of inflicting damage: Lascannon

    Against AV13 Vehicles, firing with BS3
    Lascannon- .08 glances, .17 penetrates
    Autocannon- .17 glances
    Missile Launcher (Krak)- .08 glances, .08 penetrates
    Best chance of destroying enemy vehicle: Lascannon
    Best chance of inflicting damage: Lascannon

    Against AV14 Vehicles, firing with BS3
    Lascannon- .08 glances, .08 penetrates
    Missile Launcher (Krak)- .08 glances
    Best chance of destroying enemy vehicle: Lascannon
    Best chance of inflicting damage: Lascannon

    Overall conclusion: Use Multilasers on AV10, Autocannons on AV10/11, Lascannons for anything bigger, and (if you've got em) use the Missiles on whatever happens a good target.

    Just my contribution. Feel free to add whatever you like- it doesn't matter how general or specific, it could be the average damage a squad of Marines does on the charge or just how many Ogryns you need to kill that pesky group of Genestealers- as long as the math is correct, you're not hurting anyone with rrelatively obscure possibilities. This could be useful in-game, help for designing an army list, or just be a general reference for the sort of effectiveness questions that pop up from time to time.

    And please, no arguing over the validity of Mathhammer. If you don't like it, you don't need to use it. Endless argument only makes it harder to find the useful content.
