When I've been calculating the relative effectiveness of various weapons and units, I've been mathing it up against three hypothetical enemy targets:

Marines in cover (T4, 2+ save, 1 wound each)
Guardsmen (T3, 5+ save, 1 wound each) equivalent units, like gaunts in cover.
Vehicles (T7, 3+ save, multi-wound damage)

Most everything I've seen has basically one of those statlines, or something close enough to it to be approximated that way.

Is there anything common in your local metas which isn't much like any of the above, and which I should account for? I haven't seen much of bikes...

What about Tau suits, which are a little like Bikes?

Higher T than a Marine, decent save and multiple wounds too. Can also have FNP type save from an Ethereal too. A 6+ I believe.

Thanks for the input!

A great update would be the ability to store weapon profiles and target profiles.... It's a big deal because it involves a Database but I would invest some time in populating it
