Oh, one thing that I don't remember EVER seeing a good rule for, would be
something to handle weird arm/leg armor mixes. If TFT, there would very
rarely be any reason to attack the more-armored leg, for example, and no
reason to maneuver in any particular way.

Something like an extra -2 adjDX penalty to hit farther limbs might do the
trick, with the left and right front hexes being distinguished for this
purpose. Thus, if you move second, you could offer your better front hex
to the enemy.

An alternative which might be used alongside that would be to say that a
figure can always put one limb forward as opposed to the other, giving a
+1/-1 adjDX split to attacks from the front, and the opposite to attcks
from the rear.

I think I can already hear the "keep it simple" crowd groaning, though. ;-)
