So I finally got a group together to play the book campaign Final Testimate. Is it just me or does combat against Severan Dominate troops either too fast or too slow? when you take away the damage from armor and toughness none of the weapons appear to do much damage to either the npc or players. the players end up wasting their grenades just to do a decent amount of damage to the npcs.
THe lineup for the group is this:
Stormtrooper with a hotshot lasguns
Weapon specialist with a sniper rifle
sergeant who prefers to use his chainsword over everything
psyker who has smite and prescience
In addition to this the amount of damage that the NPCs do rarely ever end up hurting the PCs. I know this can easily be solved by giving them some heavy weapons but I don't want the PCs to die too quickly (considering nobody wanted to play a medic).
