|The final French Indian War unit - a static unit for use with the fort|
The rules I was trying out were:
- When a unit shoots at a target other units can provide supporting fire. For example, an infantry unit shooting at another infantry unit has two friendly units within range of the target, can roll 3 dice and select the highest scoring dice.
- Only half of the units in a force may perform an action, moving or shooting. Units providing supporting fire do not count as taking an action.
- Supporting fire can come from units which have moved. This allows some units to move up and be engaged in an attack by support another unit's shooting.

I am quite liking the way the rule changes are working for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I am always a bit dubious when all a forces units can move, it does not feel right. Only moving up to half of the units causes a forces units to move in phases. Seconding, supporting fire allows units which have not taken an action to be involved.
