The reaction test for suppression is interesting - adds a bit of chance
over the set reactions of the other method. Combine the two: If a squad
blows it's rolls and gets a first suppression, (testing at Threat +1 for
the first time) they can move but not shoot. Next suppression, test at
and they hit dirt if they fail. After that, treat them as normal

Lots of ground horseflesh? Call in the French, they _still_ eat horse...

Glad to know that I'm not the only one to consider using Boer figs as
mounted militia/irregular troops. (Do you do SG2 in 25mm or 15mm?)
ordered any yet,but the idea occured to me...
