    We have been struggling with the French.
    The english have +1 to hit and a skill test re roll. these are excellent.
    We have been trying hard with chain shot but find it hopeless.
    You halve the range which is terrible for carronades reducing them to 4″ no extra damage is done and you get 2 rolls on the aim high critical hit chart. We have found this to be totally ineffective, not having bought down a single mast yet.

    We are considering giving chain shot an additional +1 to hit? or removing the -1 to hit for aiming high??

    I would be interested to hear how others have been doing

    I would give +1 to hit with chain shot but of course keep all the half range restrictions. I haven’t tested this but it sounds reasonable.
