"So maybe a close combat should be treated as firing – engage in one and the figure ends all action for the turn."Hey, I thought, I have John's email address. Why not simply ask the author his intent?
I suspect this is the authors intent. This is a shooting focused game and melee should not be so over powered.
Hi Dale,Well there you have it! Thanks to the Unknown blog post commenter. I agree that it is a good change also and does change the nature of the game considerably.
Yes, I intended that close combat ends a figures move for that phase.
