If the infantry save vote goes as the trend indicates, changes in weapon stats will be the next step. Here are some idle thoughts regarding that subject:

1. weapons with modifiers (anti-tank), should have a reduced hit probability versus infantry, due to size and nimbleness. If hit however they should be toast. Only units with super heavy armor (termies) will get a save.
2. Small weapons should have higher to hit values. their use is very limited, bolters and such may be a 5+ to hit but heavy bolters should be more accurate (4+)

These changes should be simple, but will add a lot of tactics. Tanks will be used as such and infantry will tend to target infantry units, but be occasional able to shot down a tank. By far close assault will be the most effect method to take out tanks by infantry.

Any other ideas?
