Re: 2nd ED memories....
to hit modifiers, being behind a wall makes you harder to hit, doesnt mean i hit you then the wall jumps in the way!
overall i'd keep phases we have in 5th, but add back in to hit modifiers, and make IC vs IC and MS vs MS or any cmbination of that combat like 2nd ed, so that it adds more drama. grunts and squads are worked out as now though
some form of in depth vehicle damage would be nice too, or at least reactions that may occur liek the ork trukk rules.
not overwatch though, never liked that, made games boring as no-one ever moved.
and maybe just maybe this new battles book will allow non symectrical missions, you never know
