So I started playing with Grammatical analyses, as I suggested in previous posts, and I had a go at a first visualization.
It is a simple heat-map of a verb table showing what conjugations of the verb are most common and which are rare. Interestingly a whole slew of conjugations that appear in several grammars and other verb tables I have never appear at all in the NT. The optative future is the main offender, but there are several others.
If you are primarily interested in reading the GNT, this map shows what conjugations to focus on, but there are limitations, as described on the chart.
You can download it in either International A4 or US Letter format. Both are pdf files and both are around 10K in size, so they're tiny.
