~Rules Discussion
Initiative Responses
ERock
-standard 3 dice to start. 
-head to head roll. And add all your strategist and tacticians in to it for one big dice pool
+1 per tactician
+2 for strategist
-1 for pinned 
-2 for suppressed
-1 for injured
Make it like command. So maybe a 5+ or 6+ test? 
Sounds random to me and puts the commanders against each other. 
Brings exploding 8's in. An injured or suppressed commander won't be as effective at commanding his troops

-suggestion for Initiative is 3 dice (as per the standard dice pool) adding 2 dice to the player activated all their models first. 
-Each player is looking for results at or under their Command total of their current commander with 1s exploding.  
-3 dice pool broadens the bell curve more than 1 or 2 dice. It also matches most rolls in Deadzone.  I see the better commander being the bigger deciding factor for who wins Initiative
-shifts who gets Initiative toward that 70% favoring the player that activates everything first

Created completely new Command/Initiative concept 
- create a new statistic, Initiative
- Strategist gets +2, Tactician gets +1, Leader gets +1
(ex: a model with Leader, Strategist, now simply has I: (3))
-naming the current split Command statistic into two named statistics--Strategic Command and Tactical Command. So a model that is currently a 3-2, would become a S(3) T(2). 
-we now have a 3-part command group: Command Initiative, Strategic Command, and Tactical Command. 
-(CI) tells us how good we are at leading our men on the battlefield. 
-(SC) tells us how good we are at preparing in advance, for potential enemies. 
-(TC) tells us how good we are at making decisions in the heat of battle. 
New initiative system
- beginning of each ROUND, all players take a (CI 5+) test. Each player will roll 3 dice, adding a number of dice equal to their current highest (CI) statistic. The winning player has seized the initiative, and may choose to take the 1st or 2nd turn. 
-turns will alternate until all models have been activated or both players have passed. 
-if tie, each player will roll 1 additional d8. 
-player rolling the highest value wins. 
Changes to Command
-rule change is made in regard to how many models may activate in a turn. 
-player may only activate his (SC) Strategic Command worth of models in a turn. 
-reduces the # of models a single player activates during a turn, allowing for a more 'back and forth' between the factions during a single round.
