I have got the first big update for Mathhammer! Yeah! I’ve added MathHammer Weapon Profiles so that each saved Attacker Profile can have one or more weapons associated with it.

MathHammer Weapon Profiles

This is less useful for a Guardsman. But really useful for a Leman Russ, a Baneblade or a Knight. You can add as many weapons as you wish to a profile, giving you the true damage output of the unit. You can overwrite the BS too. This is particularly useful if you have a unit with an Assault weapon or Pistol that has a BS of maybe 4 – but you are fairly sure they will end up in combat with their WS of 3+. The melee weapons can be BS 3 (which uses the same mechanic WS). This gives you a real representation of their true potential using the correct WS and BS for their weapons.

You can also select specific settings for weapons, maybe only one of your weapons Explodes on 6s. You can select this option for that weapon only – rather than for all weapons on the unit.
