I haven't played the game in a long time but back when I used to play it I drew up some house rules for using 3d6 instead of 1d10 for all combat rolls. The reason - I was dissatisfied with the way firing through a few tree hexes could render shots impossible at relatively close range.

I don't have the variant rules to hand but I think I just added 5 to each target number, so a 3 to hit on a d10 becomes an 8 to hit on 3d6. The number 5 was the best value I came up with to ensure the "To Hit" probabilities where more or less the same as for a d10 in the higher ranges, but with the added bonus that you could now have probabilities lower than 10%. This allows you to spray rounds into thick jungle for its suppression effect and for a very small chance of a lucky hit.
