My gaming group is really enjoying 6th edition, but units like Nob Bikers and Paladins can really sour a game if a player is abusing the wound allocation system with an attached Independent Character.
We've found a house rule that puts a stop to that abuse and is more cinematic as well!
When a character makes a Look Out Sir! check, you must swap the position of the models. This means that characters can't tank all the wounds, except for those pesky AP 2 and/or Instant Death! hits that they want to avoid. If they do, then they must move their position and commit to the other model taking their place. It doesn't make sense (especially in a cinematic sense) for a scrub to only block the plasma gun attack in a full volley of shots.
We've found that this keeps the units that can really abuse the Look Out Sir! rule in check and it plays out in a really fun way.
What do you guys think?
