As requested, I ran some numbers on the Gorebeast Chariot and threw in a regular Khorne Chariot for another comparison. I tried to double-check the numbers since this is my first run at doing a chariot comparison, and they seemed to make sense to me. Let me know if you think that something looks odd.
Since this is my first chariot comparison, there are a couple more assumptions added:
- The chariot charged into combat (for non-charging rounds, just subtract the Impact Hits from the results)
- The chariot is fighting to its front (i.e. the mounts get to attack)
- Impact Hits from the d6 end up at 3 (+1 for scythed wheels)
- Only the High Elf models in base contact can attack
Up first is the “plain” Khorne Chariot. It hits pretty hard, but will probably end up dying in the 2nd round against everything except for the Spearmen.
Now for the Khorne Gorebeast Chariot… The damage output is slightly better than the other chariot. However, the higher Toughness really reduces the number of wounds that it takes.
And the final comparison includes a Nurgle Gorebeast Chariot. The -1 To Hit helps the chariot survive against the Swordmasters and White Lions, but doesn’t make a difference against the Spearmen & Phoenix Guard.
Be sure to point out if anything looks wrong. This is the first time with these calculations, and things can go wrong. Also, I don’t have access to the book, so was using what I could glean from another source for the numbers to use.
Next week, I’ll put up the comparison for the Skullcrushers.
