Yup, gives average odds of 1 hit per firing phase, right? Dark reapers
had 2 dice at 4+ to it IIRC - same odds.
Temp was right, they're no better 8)
SO, if we want to be fair to everybody else, any stand that consists
entirely of hvy wpns (DR's, Thunderers, shooty boyz etc) should have HW
x2, as opposed to HW by itself (Dev's etc) As for the whole 'infantry
firepower ceiling' thing, well, 5 dark reapers would have very near the
firepower of a Leman Russ. Only difference is no battlecannon, but since
FP is an abstract concept compared to the hit-save mechanism, this
shouldnt matter 8)
