This sounds elegant, simple and effective. I think that this could work
quite well. Perhaps instead of weapons that have a save modifier, we can
designate weapons AP (armour piercing) and that infantry units hit with AP
weapons die with no save. This way we avoid having to revamp all the
curent save modifiers but can designate the weapons that will scrap
infantry easily and quickly without too much extra baggage. (eg- I think
that Devastators should not ignore infantry saves.)
