Re: Larger models moving through woods

Yeah it makes sense... perhaps back in the mists of time I thought warriors of mass 5 or more should be able to move through woods without penalty! But that's wrong now.

So basically: the passage on p79 applies, but only to rough ground, not wooded terrain.

Thats a bit neater. So as long as I make the attempt to grab and soar, I can soar afterwards regardless of the success of the grab?

Am I right in thinking that for a warrior to be able to complete the soar part of a grab soar attack attempt, they need to successfully grab something?
