I understand the genestealers can move up and down but how do you decide if they move up or down?.

Also can genestealers attack anywhere in the formation or only where there is a location card?.

Thanks

When it is time to move a genestealer, look at the card of the marine that it is engaged with. On the side that the genestealer is on, there will be either an up or down arrow. This is the direction it will go in, joining any other genestealers that already occupy its destination space.

They can attack from any position on the column, not just where the Terrain cards are.

Easier way to think of it is to see your formation as a clock. They move counter clock wise. Always, no matter the facing.

For instance, in this 5 marine formation (I'm a good drawer ain't I?);



You just follow the arrows pictured here. Knowing that beforehand, it will probably change the way you play the game.

One important note. The one at the top of the formation would flank only if you are facing right and the one at the bottom would flank only if you are facing left.
