Now that Mr. W. has clarified his house rule for me, I do find it to be worth looking at more closely. I really do like how Missile Combat and Spirit Combat become much more important to soften up the troops, an issue that was addressed a long time ago in an early issue of Wyrms Footnotes, at least by inference.

Yes, I think it does enhance this. Not sure how well it would work with Retreat and Forced Retreat rules, which seem to be more easily dealt with the other way (that is, a unit might be given an option to Retreat and be Disrupted rather than being Eliminated), but seeing how well balanced it is would be the best thing to do right now.
