Thanks a lot for this, I didn't know about that. If anyone else realises I've made a similar mistake, please tell me!

Alright, another major update has been done. There are now tables with the point costs factored in where you can see the effectiveness of each Arrow type point-for-point. I've also made the Excel documents editable again, as was requested. Additionally, I've tried to make a more printable version (hiding anything but results, less colour, etc.).

Someone asked me for a calculator type mechanism but I regret to say I'm not that good with Excel... I could easily program it in JAVA, but that wouldn't be as accessible, and I think it's easy enough to read the required result off the table.

Way to go, Onyx King, a topic to my heart, Thanks!

Thanks! You're not so bad at the number-crunching yourself, Krael! ;)

This is pretty good, but "Trueflight Arrows" needs a new sub-title...

In your conclusions, you note Ogres as being Forces of Destruction, which they are not (they are unaligned). Therefore, the +1 to Wound from Starfire (or indeed Moonfire) won't work against them. Same for Tomb Kings (which is sad because they have a lot of flammable stuff).

Thank you very much! I'm positive it will be useful to many Asrai.

Ah, right, that was a mistake. Ogres just seem kind of destructive to me... :smirk: I consider Tomb Kings to be the only true neutral race in Warhammer.

I removed the little nod to Tomb Kings and magic to avoid confusion. Note though, that they do not have a lot of Flammable stuff at all. It's only the non-Wizard Characters, and there aren't a lot of occasions in a standard game where you'd be able to shoot them with Flaming arrows.

This might be a feeble voice in an empty gigantic room...

Does anyone still have the full excel file?

As the author, I believe I do! It would be at home on my other computer though, which I can only get to in the weekend. If you don't mind waiting, I'll send it to you then.
