Sergeant upgrade is annoying because i need to take different dice colour to include his hit bonus when rolling. Or roll twice.
I think more smooth would be if Sergeant add 1 attack dice more.
---- Musician/Standard - are very powerful. Having +2 to combat resolution is a massive advantage. The game don't reward even flank charge so much. Its being more about pimping army than clever gaming. Also both adding the same bonus is little dull.
?not sure? maybe if Musician add Fearless(+1 Morale)? or allow more/bigger pivots when having Standard? or faster Advance movement (would be esp. good for shooters)?
We tried all the different options, but landed on the current ones simply due to balance reasons. Giving the sergeant 1 more attack die can be abused, having musicians/standards give bonus to movement/pivoting/morale/etc. was either broken, or required too much fiddling with the point costs.
