been modified by playtesting and various cost fomulas.

Formulae are a fine starting point, but actual playtesting is the
only way to see if it actually works out the way it should.

In preparation for last night's game (Orks vs BT), I had a good look
at the BT lists. (I don't have them here for reference, I'm at work
right now so apologies if I get some numbers wrong). It looks like
they can have 3 Land Raiders for 300 points, that's fine, 100pts each
is okay. But they can swap one of those LRs for four Close Assault
Veteran Terminator stands (+8 CAF). In an Ork army you'd only get
four Boyz stands for that much (+3 CAF if they are Goffs, but no
save). Nobody should be able to swap 100 points of equipment for 4
Termie stands, regardless of their equipment.

I'll check these numbers again later.
