We do need a squad leader.
One guy (maybe me) will be the Shotgun and C4 guy. Why let that 1-1 roll be there on several members for KIA instead of Wound Pack. Answer: Cause recycle the guy's gear? No, bad wisdom, bad.
A sniper would be nice to make sure we have the option to pass and finish the job.
Anyone with Carbines is doing the major dice rolls and hitting the most. That specialist needs the machine gun to keep up Suppression and remove danger of 3-3 (or less) Exposed. A Grenade Launcher guy to stop Melee w/ Tear Gas is a must.
Sure you all want to be no ammo needed double pistol Sarge, but it will happen at the expense of those pulling the cart (carbines).
Would it go any easy if I say the worst is yet to come?
As for Prep, would be easy to let all use the Do Something roll to give a bonus right before attack if not surprised (rare). Do Something and then say what? No Loss ever of Canteen (here). Extra half D8 attack attempts round one (might then use Frag). No way to suffer Exposed wound prep. Etc. Free-Style.
I'm glad a simple Dice & Guns games is where everyone is at. Would take too many Q&D to truly make this sing. But seeing the results in Episode One was as good as any Q&D I could had written. Guy whose Mom gave him the gold ingot was first to die. Classic. Mike as PR Director being one to grab that Gold makes him the slimy guy from Alien of course.
