We played it where every chit gets to roll a single d6 and they each get the combat bonus of the whole stack, which created extremely lethal combats when large armies came up against each other.
Apart from that we really enjoyed the game.
Each unit rolls for its own hits, but each leader/artillery unit can only be assigned to a single unit to affect that unit's roll. Rule 18 covers the details of the Field Combat aspect of the game. Also please note that ConsimWorld is where you can find a link to the updated rules (currently v1.4). You can find the HRE forum under Boardgaming -> Era: Gunpowder -> Pre-Napoleonic.
Glad that you enjoyed yourselves despite the "variant" system you were using.
