The cards still say yes to me. The capacity for unfairness is greatly
reduced. But I too would like to see aspects of customisation. In AT (thanks
peter) there was a WD supplement that had rules for upgrading your tanks -
eg. fitting demolition charges to Predators. Upgrade options like this would
be welcomed here. Purchasing a special skill for HQ units would make them a
lot more useful and important than they currently are (just look at the SM
commander who does next to nothing) Not every unit should have the option of
these upgrades - perhaps 1 or 2 per big army card.

A feature that appealed to me in AT was that you could choose not to reveal
the order until you actually used it. Why should you know what your opponent
is going to do before you move? I have never actually played it this way so
feel free to comment.

Also, the Repair order for Titans might make sense (not move but add +1 to
all repair rolls). Naturally you wouldn't be needing this all that often but
it would be handy for Titans soon to bite the big one.
