Has anyone worked out when it is best to use the flesh gauntlet or the cleaver?

I've just been going by if they have a decent invulnerable I use the gauntlet and all other times I use cleaver but it'd be nice to have a more definitive answer.

Use gauntlet against anything with stormshields or something that gives a similar invul save.

Also, gauntlets rack up more wounds vs. things that have no armor save at all, like poxwalkers.

Have played around with the math on this a bit.

Against vehicles always use Cleaver

Against non-vehicles:
Use Gauntlet if wounding on a 4+ or worse
Use Gauntlet if AP headroom is 0 or -1
Otherwise use Cleaver

AP headroom is a term I use for the difference between armour and invulnerable save, e.g. 2+/3++ or 6+ have a headroom of -1, and a 4++ has a headroom of 0.

Most targets Grotesques wound on 3+ or better, and you get full value for the AP on the Cleaver, so usually the attacks should be made with Cleavers.
