Re: Unit Strategy Review: How to use the Zombies of Morindan
Love these guys; best moment of all time happened a few years ago. My opponent had a Deathwalker 9000, I had one Zombie adjacent to him. He decides, what the hec, I'll use my explosion SP attack on him. He rolls 1 Skull. I roll 1 shield. Deathwalker rolls...0 shields. My buddy stares in disbelief. LOL!! Bye bye, tin can...

Re: Unit Strategy Review: How to use the Zombies of Morindan
One army I have found extremely successful is:
Airborne Elite110 Raelin80 Isamu10 Zombiesx5300 Total: 500/21 spaces This army is very similar to the first sample army. Basically, use the Airborne to get rid of your opponent's range. I think ranged figures are the largest counters to zombies, so that's my reasoning on targeting ranged figures first (Krav would be a problem). Other primary targets would be the counters listed in the review. After the ranged units/ biggest threats are assassinated by the Airborne, 15 zombies backed by Raelin should hold their own, munching along the way to victory.

What is the math supporting these conclusions from Sisyphus' tables? Is there ever a scenario where the probabilities would ever suggest that you not use Onslaught? (please show your work) For example ... three zombies on high ground against a 1life squaddie with 2 defense dice each have a 62.5% chance of scoring a hit with the average damage being 0.958 each. It's not bad, but ... if they use Onslaught their chance jumps to 90.6% with average damage of 2.354. I just can't find a situation where Onslaught isn't ALWAYS the right choice. Thanks in advance for the help.

Math Time
Sure. So with a 1 life figure, average damage isn't useful to you. The way to calculate the odds of killing it is 1(probability it survives). Attack of 3 vs 2 kills the figure 62.5% of the time. So it has a 37.5% chance of surviving 1(0.375^3) equals ~95% so this means 95% of the time the figure dies to 3 attacks of 3. Onslaught being a 6 vs 2 will kill the figure 90.6% of the time. So it's better to not use onslaught there.

So, onslaught gives a 90.6% chance of getting the kill. Each individual attack of 3 only gives a 62.5% chance... but you get three tries. The chance of at least one of the three of them hitting is 1  (1.625)^3 = 94.7%, which is higher than onslaught. And that's only the relevant analysis if you only have a single target available. If you had 3 targets available, then onslaught kills .906 squaddies on average, while normal attacks would kill 1.875 on average  more than twice as many. It's not even close.

Sounds like this is another army that can be played by a flow chart in all seriousness I love zombies.

Re: Unit Strategy Review: How to use the Zombies of Morindan
Father of Julian gave me a run for my money with this squad! Do not underestimate the zombies! Play it smart and never let them get height on you. Prioritize whittling down groups of 3 into groups of 2 so they can't onslaught you. Most importantly, remember you haven't beat this army until all of the zombies are dead!
