the ďunitsĒ donít make sense.  Instead of having a core of regular troops, itís one of these and one of those.  Just looks wrong to me.

You could play it with a normal squad of regular troops, with one or two specialists (the officer, and a chaplain or whoever) added?

The specialists can also be regular troops who have developed specialised skills and carry specialised weaponry in the field for these missions.

That's my plan...

I was a bit concerned that 6 solo missions might not be enough for mr but having just discovered a solo mission generator elsewhere i'm going to go all in and give this a go

I would have prefered more narative driven missions like ROSD but I'm also wondering if I just can't convert them too

blood moon and Burning Light seems like good places to start

Wasn't quite what I mean - I was asking about reposting links to other forums such as boardgamesgeekv on here

not posting the same thing in multiple sections on here

Ahh, you should have said in the question, thats  different from cross posting. You are welcome to repost links from other forums. If itís blog etc, itís worth posting a photo from the blog if possible. Many forum users wonít click on external links to blogs without a picture to spark an interest.

So been playing a bit and one think that I can't quite work out is the points cost for some of the troop types

gor example

An 8 point different between an infantry man and a rifleman for the minimmal shoot improvment, compaired to the 5 point difference for the grenadier with 3 stat improvments doesn't seem righ to me? If the Rifleman was the same cost as a Grenadier it would seem more balanced

Rilflemen have more expensive, harder to source equipment, maybe?
