My play group have long debated the usefulness on MG’s in the game vs their cost. We thought they were over priced and underpowered. Who would want to take them?
So here is our solution. Point costs remain the same. Please read on, any feedback would be appreciated.


LMG’s may fire at a different target from the rest of their unit. They may fire on a run order, with the movement penalty, and then join their unit in its move. Loader and LMG will not participate in the first round of a Close Assault if they fired. Does not apply to vehicle MG’s.

MMG and HMG may split their fire between 2 different targets. Increase the ROF by 1 and divide the shots as evenly as possible between those targets. Does not apply to vehicle MG’s

Our thought was that more pins may happen, not necessarily kills.
