I was reading over character creation and I believe there is a spot where it could be improved.
I rather dislike the idea that “Support Specialists” use the same Homeworld as the rest of the Regiment. Would it not make more sense to allow the Specialists to pick their own Homeworld?
The regiment creation point discrepancy for Homeworlds makes allowing free pick of Homeworlds problematic. E.g. Regiment from an Imperial World costs 1 point, and allowing the Commissar to take Schola Progenium would be a net surplus of 2 points over everyone else playing, thus unbalanced.
My current house rule is to simply allow Specialists to take whatever Homeworld they choose (perhaps strongly recommend Schola Progenium for Storm Trooper and Commissar) and then attempt to remove a bonus from the Doctrines or Commanding Officer until the total regimental cost points are equal among everyone.
A simpler solution would be to equalize the Homeworlds so they are all worth 3 points, allowing for fair flow between.
Another Option would be removing Homeworld bonuses entirely from Specialists and building in a particular Homeworld into each Specialist. E.g. Toxic/Heavy-G Orgyn World. These bonuses might be roughly in the realm of 2 points as to make them roughly even with the Regimental Homeworlds.
