I liked rolling for the troops to kill marines, but didn't like how ALL the marines fired. It made boarding large ships totally suicidal at first, especially before Iron Stars added a way for marines to be killed by ship damage.

This was my solution...

The smaller Marine Force can fire all its men. The Larger can only fire up to twice the Smaller force. Think of it as the difficulty of bringing those numbers to bear against a smaller force in the confines of a ship.

This gives a chance of a smaller force of setting up a beachhead, and lets marine battles go over several turns sometimes. We are quite happy with the result.
