I guess I am a dimwit. So where do I find how to make a unit SUPPRESSED. I have tried looking but I obviously can't find them. Can anyone point me to the location?

First hit equals suppression, IIRC.

Just found that on another forum. Good suggestion

Troop quality also determines how many soldiers can be suppressed before the unit starts taking casualties.

Suppression is also a negative modifier to activation.

Or, for larger battles, in the more deadly future, there is no suppression, only casualties.

there is suppression. just use rings or tee's to use.
me. I am the space demons. no suppression. just casualties. as long as one of the hive mind is alive. no activation checks.

munch! munch!

I nix the suppression rules for platoon and company sized battles.

Every hit is a casualty.

Well you pick and choose. Each troop type can take so much suppression before it takes casualties. When your unit takes hits, and fails their save, you allocate the remaining hits to the unit as suppression or as causalities. Troops who are suppressed are limited in many ways plus each suppression adds a penalty to your activation roll. But you can recover from suppression.

Casualties are permanent. The trooper in question is lost, however his loss doesn't affect the unit's ability to activate. This can be very critical at times! You may decide to forgo the suppression because you need a certain unit to activate and you don't want the penalty.

It's in the rules, just do a little digging… which is easy. It's just a single page!

Well, my version is not a single page. wink
