We've used the Weight of Fire rules for a few scenarios now and have found they work well with a few little warts, some of which are just minor adjustments. A few things from the last couple of games which we found odd.
1. Jagers armed with rifles; if they fire, then they have to use the next move to reload ?? Were rifles of the period slower to reload ??
2. Shooting Modifiers (effect based on an average dice roll of 3 or 4)
-2 for Move and fire. ; this reduces the effect of a volley by about 1/3rd
-2 for soft cover ; this reduces the effect of a volley by about 1/3rd
-4 for Hard cover; this reduces the effect of a volley by about 2/3rds
Anyone know enough about the period to say whether the above are right ? Comments welcome.
