For our book-keeper types: How about a +1 for - each number less then 4
fighters - strength of the group and +1 per turn consecutive re-arming?

I.e., strength 5 turn one 5 or 6; turn 2 4/5/6, turn 3 3/4/5/6 ---
strength 3 turn one (+1 for smaller size) 4/5/6, turn two 3/4/5/6, turn
2/3/4/5/6 --- strength 2 turn one (+2 for smaller size) Automatic
all 1's fail <grin> which seems a bit much.)

Here I am making suggestions for MT/FBx and I've never seen the rules!
