  Dice 2 7 LD 6 passes: %

3 10 LD 9 passes: %
4 11 LD 10 passes: %

As you can see the results will follow the following line:

Conclusion

In everyday vocabulary this means:

LD 10 : You will pass the test 9 out of 10 times
LD 9   : You will pass the test 4 out of   5 times
LD 8   : You will pass the test 3 out of   4 times
LD 7   : You will pass the test 2 out of   3 times
LD 6   : You will pass the test 2 out of   5 times
LD 5   : You will pass the test 1 out of   4 times

 

 Reroll on the Battle Standard or roll on the higher General's LD   

Should I choose for a Battle Standard Bearer, or for an Army General?

There are many reasons you might choose for a battle standard bearer of for an army general in your army. A general often adds more fighting power, and you can use his LD for ALL LD tests. The battle Standard can only be used for Break tests.

Here I try to give an inside in the percentage of succeeded LD tests the General or the Battle Standard add to your result.

 

LD test Battle Standard reroll General with +1 LD General with +2 LD
2 +2,7% + 5,5% +13,8%
3 +7,6% + 8,3% +19,4%
4 +13,8% +11,1% +25,0%
5 +20,0% +13,9% +30,6%
6 +24,3% +16,7% +30,5%
7 +24,3% +13,8% +25,0%
8 +20,1% +11,2% +19,7%
9 +13,9% +8,5% + 8,5%
10 +7,5% +  0% +  0%

 

Battle Standard reroll

You may reroll a failed test. This will add to the percentage you will succeed.

The calculation is as follows: p=percentage you will succeed the first throw on LD x. The percentage you will not succeed the first throw is 100-p. Extra chance you will succeed = (100-p)*p.

General with +1 LD

If your general has LD of 1 more than the base LD the unit would have, than the difference between the chance you will succeed on LD x and the chance you will succeed on LD x+1 is the percentage you will gain.

General with +2 LD

If your general has 2 more LD than the unit that has to test, you will gain the difference between LD x an LD x+2.
