40K blast scatter

Now that 5th Edition warhammer 40k is here, there are a whole load of extra things to think about. I was thinking about how blast scatter has changed and was wondering if the chances to hit are really so much worse, so I knocked together a quick table:

(click on it for a larger view)

It gives you the following information:

  • the chance of hitting without deviation
  • the chance of still hitting the originally targeted model with a 3″ or 5″ blast
  • the chance of scattering less than or equal to a given distance.

and how it changes with the model’s BS. The colours denote a 33-50%  (yellow), 51-80% (orange) and 81%+  (green) chance of meeting the criteria.

The numbers are much better than I thought- it seems that my fire prism is still quite effective.

If you find this useful, let me know (or if you find any mistakes!).
