Thanks for sharing.
Great stuff on Jeff's Optional Rules & House Rules for Nuts, but I do not understand or I'm confused about the point No. 7
7. For prone in a HE blast area, reduce the HE Impact of the attacking weapon by 2, then roll on the Ranged Combat Damage table for effects.
Discussion: This lessens but does not eliminate the chance for damage if prone. For example, a Rep 4 figure who is prone in the blast area of a grenade (HE impact value of 2) has 4/9 chance of not being out of the fight or dead (also a 5/9 or 55% chance of being killed or out of the fight). If the same figure was not prone, he would have a 70% of being killed our out of the fight. It also represents that you are far better off prone in an HE blast areas than standing.
This means a grenade HE impact value of 2 is reduced to 0? And therefore, according to Ranged Combat Damage Table, a prone figure never will be affected by a score of ("1" or Impact or less but not a "1") and so OD and Out of Fight never will be the result for this figure? Some light on this?
Thanks in advance.
