In this image the US unit in the wooden building in G7 is firing at the German unit next to him in H6. The fire attack d10 roll, after a successful morale check, was 1.

My question is about the final total against the German and if modifiers can dip below 0 during before applying a unit's casualty rating.

Is it ... 1 (roll) - 3 (adjacent) + 1 (wooden building) = -1 total? Then ...

+ 3 or 7 (German casualty rating) = 2 or 6 (and if 6, eliminated)?

Thanks.

You're calculations are correct (at least the same as mine )

Jim already posted that negative is ok: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/8185910#8185910

Yeah, I thought I'd seen that before but my search-fu is weak today. Thanks (Sean too).

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Yes, the negative numbers thing is a bit of a hang up. I am actually giving some consideration to reversing the modifiers and having them modify the firepower instead of the die roll so that you will never get a negative roll. As has been pointed out to me, it would make the calculations easier.

Thanks everyone for chiming in on the answers. There are quite a few people who are becoming really good at this system that are posting in the forum. The more you can answer questions, the more I can work on finishing the next module.
