i dont like the medics rules.

The medic just hides ....and throws out a 6" magic bubble of healing. sad

Not very skirmishy. (is that a word ??? )

Can i suggest a house rule ?

When the medic activates , he runs over to a casualty, and you roll a dice, on a 5+ the guy gets up and returns to his unit.

On a 4.....he has to try again next turn to help the wounded guy.

And on a 1,2or a 3 ...its no go...the guy is KIA.... remove the miniature from the battlefield.

It would make it much more fun.

Medics are a bit boring RAW.

BTW, really enjoyed the game of BA on Sunday....

Space Marines against AT-43 Steel Troopers.....great game. biggrin

Hi

If the contents of these three photographs confer a 5+ save then I'm glad I'm not in your army biggrin

Or an officers kit

Looks like a six to me and to any other poor sod who had to save a mans life with that lot biggrin

Now this is more like a 5

Aye, i agree, it does all look a bit primitive. tongue

But a 30 point medic can give give a limitless number of saves per round, at a 6, depending on how many people get killed in his 6" magic bubble.

So i thought bumping it up to a 5+ might offset the number of attempts at a 6 ????

Hoping................ that medics would still be worth 30 points when using this house rule.
