I am new to the whole advanced heroquest experience (however i have played vanilla heroquest for a while.)

I was rolling up a new Dwarf character and became concerned when i reached his toughness.

Dwarf toughness d4+4

I rolled a 4 making a starting toughness of 8 before gear being added in. It is conceivable that i will obtain 1-3 toughness from gear and then you are staring at a 11ish toughness.
Doesnt this sap the fun out of the game that the enemies can only wound me by hitting with a dr12 result of 11 or 12?

Yes, the random character building from Advanced HeroQuest is broken.

This is one of the main reason I put this together:

The big fix that is needed is with character gen. The few other balance problems are not massive and easily tweaked.
