Tried the S&S rules out and used my Dune collection simple scenario attack a Sardaukar base with the defenders split in the open and buildings, I quickly used the points and made some fast profiles and surprised to find they looked perfect for the game, the Fremen had first card and advanced from two sides, they were engaged quickly by the defenders and a series of interesting melee fights started, the combat is different in S&S and gave for me a great flow and a more tactical game , the Sardaukar emerged and engaged the Fremen I found the swords with a range of 1" became deadly as the zone offered another card in attack, but the daggers of the Fremen and there faster move evened the scale, the fights became more brutal and the Fremen started to loose more men, even the appearance of there leader could not help the attack and a morale card proved the Fremen were defeated and had to back off. a victory to the Sardaukar.
For me it worked very well in the context of the game, the weapons and armor save add a lot to the over all system and the hit table is great to resolve a fight I think in the game I had 6 instant kills. Loads of fun and an interesting world to try again, looking forward to the book when its published. I urge players to give it a go.
