You know I would. Lets not forget that 1st ed is not that old, as war

What I do is think of E40K/.E41K vs AT/SM1 is like Command Decision vs
Firefly. One is a battalion/regimental level game, one is a
platoon/company level game. They just happen to use the same figures.
I don't have a problems with this in my W.W.II games, why should I have
a problem with it in SF games?
