Larger models moving through woods

Postby HughB » Mon Oct 21, 2019 9:04 pm

Query about whether gigantic models can walk freely through woods unimpeded or whether their movement is treated as a difficult move?

We were looking at the rules for terrain and gigantic models recently and it stated that woods were concealing and rough ground for all sizes of models. The rules also state that models that are over unit size of 4 ignore rough terrain. Does this mean that woods are concealing for models that are unit strength five and above but not rough ground (because rough ground is ignored by anything that's greater than unit strength four) or do woods count as a special case rough ground such that all moves by all sizes of model are treated as difficult moves when within woods?

Am I making sense and can you see the cause for confusion?

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.

A very good spot, people...
