Is there a reason the current rules don't work? They're really quite simple.

it's the one thing that people have found objectionable. So with the new volley rules and stuff, figured we could update it. I don't want to make it less powerful necessarily*, just try to use more common rules to make it work.

*because 8th ed is batshit crazy, so what's the diff?

I think taking advantage of the new volley fire rule makes a lot of sense.

However, I would still base their S on the number of ranks firing. It's a good little tradition.

You may want to clarify core requirements.

i.e. does your 25% core requirement have to be all dwarves or do hobbo's count after you have thre units?

Honestly, without the slot system, there is no reason for anything to be Core that doesn't count as Core. Either make em count or make em special.

The army FAQS adress this for the other armies that have non-core core: they don't count towards core.

If you're going to make a change, I think this is a legit compromise if you end up going 18" Range, and BS4. Start at S3, up to S5 based on Ranks.
