The premise of this test was that even full 8 HP/s won't have a large statistical difference on the outcome of a fight when applied to VC chaff.
Reason being that each units that is wounded needs to roll for 2HP, 4HP, 2HP every single second.
Chances of the same unit getting consecutive rolls approaches statistical impossibility after only a few seconds and it needs consecutive rolls because 1 skeleton warrior has 61 HP and practically no armor, so practically all killing blows it receives will be overkill unless he gets multiple heals.
The test was conducted on 2 Skeleton Warriors vs 2 units of Empire Swordsman. Both took the charge head on to minimize any randomness and shuffling when moving.
1 unit of Skeleton Warrior received 8HP/s healing from a) Mortis Engine 2HP/s, b) Necromancer with Unholy Loadstone 4HP/s + 2HP/s and +5 MA, MD from Necromancer being on CC mount. Total 8HP/s.
Second unit had +5 MA, MD as the first but NONE of the healing.
These are the results:
From 160 to ~85 units the unhealed group maintained less casualties even though receiving the charge a second earlier from the healed group.
This seems to suggest that the difference in casualties was from RNG and healing had no impact on the spread whatsoever.
At 85 casualties, healed grouped started to overtake the healed grouped.
Probable cause is less entities were now rolling which made it more likely for the same entity to roll on consecutive heals.
Fight ended with the healed group having 4 casualties less.
Considerations that have to be accounted for:
1) By the time the VC have access to an Unholy Loadstone and Mortis engine it will most likely face a much more dangerous front line, or even if it faces Swordsman they will come with +10 MA vs undead which is a technology Empire consistently gets.
Healing, even when maxed out in terms of 8HP/s will have little to no difference on survivability of VC chaff. By the time it starts to have effect, VC should have usually won the fight by flanking the enemy or lost it if no flanking occurred.
As the quality of the units receiving healing increases, so does its impact.
