Learning how to play in Vassal. Didn't take proper note of how rough it is to survive till I took a glance at the whole die.

In a defense you must roll more than the number of genestealers attacking right? Meaning even taking an attack from 1 solitary genestealer without a support means you got a %33 chance of being slain? And any unmodified attack has a %50 miss rate?

Well, there are other factors. Many teams have some way of mitigating the risk.

Still, the game is ruthless, and that's part of its charm. But once you get the hang of it, you don't usually die until well into the mission. I usually make it to the end at least before finally failing.

It is brutal, but for some reason it's still fun. I sometimes like to add one or two variants to make it slightly easier. Still usually lose but means I don't have to think as hard!

There's an in-depth strategy guide around here somewhere that really helps.
