Some ideas for "Classical Gas"... (ok, get to it boys, there is a whole buffet of one-liners waiting for you, I know...)
Solid Bow and Solid Auxilia receive +1 to a losing score in close combat in good going vs Bd, Sp or supported Pk. [makes 8Bw, 4Ax and 4Bw survive a tad longer against the HI onslaught. Many didn't simply melt away at first sight of enemy armoured foot, and this allows both Persians and Carthaginians to try to live up to their fearsome reputations at least for a bound or two...]
Fast Bd move only 2 BW in RGo and BGo, not 3 [they are already pretty buff, these dudes...]
If Cv or LH are in close combat in good going against enemy Sp or Pk, and their score is tied with the enemy, and both scores are even, then the enemy Sp or Pk is destroyed. [high anxiety die-rolling for the Alexandrians and Athenians. In our view, this accounts for Cv and LH missile fire quite nicely. It's a low probability event, but since Cv and LH are all but immune to Sp and Pk, it makes the hoplites/pikemen less lazy when faced by unopposed enemy horse...]
These are kind of fun ... We find they work quite nicely. Especially the Cv/LH "not-so-quick" kill...
