ETC 2011: army list statistics part two
I would like to point out that I am only human and therefore not avoid mistakes. It is possible that some of these numbers will be inaccurate or even wrong. If you find something wrong, please let me know. I make a correction.
If you have not read first post about army list statistics, you can read it here: http://www.jirikocman.cz/2011/07/etc-2011-armies-counts/.
The most common set-up is the Blood Angels Librarian with Shield of Sanguinius, Land Raiders, several Assault Terminators and some Assault Marines. Another teams builds rhino chassis spam. Northern Ireland relies on pure jump pack army. The strangest set-up see the Latvian team. I do not know how they will also Objectives as scoring units are in the form of five assault marines and five scouts and it is not much.
We see two builds: foot armies and slightly mechanized armies. Both types with the exception of team Scottland are supported by Land Speeders with typhoon missile launcher. Furthermore, with the exception of Spain team, we can found several terminators, typically with a cyclone missile launcher in each army.
Footdars, (double) Seer councils, flying circus. War walkers with scatter lasers, average 3.54 per army, but I expected a lot more of them. Also build USA team seems to me wrong, maybe Eldars many do not understand.Footdars, (double) Seer councils, flying circus.

Latest codex. It is seen that has great potential. All the teams understand that they are shooting GK army. Spybots should not miss in every GK army, as well as a purifier and psycannons razorbacks with psyammo. But where are the Paladins?
IG builds mostly leafblower lists. Vendetas, Hydras, and Chimeras are a must have. Psykers are also numerous as well as frequent occurrence of Manticores. Look at the french list. Psykers 20, Rough Riders and no vendetas.
Long Fangs in the average number of 14.87 per army. Only the German team has only one unit of 6 Long Fangs. Rune Priests with Chooser of the Slain, Living Lighting, Murderous Hurricane or Jaws are also must have. Ireland and Norway teams builds lasplas razorback spam. Compared to last year’s ETC seems to me that the decreased occurrence of Thunderwolf cavalry and herohammer lists in general.
You can download shown data in MS Excel sheet.
What will follow next? I do not know. Think of something 🙂
