On the facebook page for AQMF i notived a lot of people talking about changes to the machine gun rules that would make it easier for MGs to damage armor, but harder to kill a vehicle, suggesting things like adding a -1 0r -2 to damage rolls against tripods to make it harder for them to outright kill one but still let damage them.
Ok, Say, Gregg, do you still go to archon? Or diecon? I hear there was some kerfuffle about an archon vs diecon gamer thing. Sheesh, i wish gamers would just get along better. Hope things are going well for you.
This is what we do regarding MG fire. If you hit and when you roll for damage, we use a d6. This limits damage to the 1-6 range on the tripod damage table. Also we use this for infantry in case u get to use the “Lucky Strike” rule!
I far as I can determine our main MG, the Browning, fired a 30-06 cartridge and is nowhere near the power of the Ma-Duece. However, having said that we are dealing with an alternate history line and the 50 may have come out earlier.
