Simple rules for shrubs and brush terrain pieces.
Following up from my tutorial on how I made some brush terrain pieces, may I suggest some simple rules to go with them. One option that I mentioned in my tutorial is to ignore them for the sake of rules and just use them for decoration. But if you are like me, it’s just a little lackluster to not put together some basic rules.
I suggest that they should have a very minimal impact, since that seems the most realistic.
Placement — May be deployed anywhere on the table, even on top of other terrain, where it makes sense.
Line of Sight — Do not block Line of Sight.
Movement — Shrubs and brush slow down units slightly. -1 Movement penalty. Does not apply to lone models, Skirmishers and Striders. Affects Remaining Moves sub-phase.
Shooting — Shrubs and brush do not affect skilled shooters but can be a nuisance to others. Models with BS 4+ are not affected. Models with BS 3 or lower have 1 successful To Hit roll blocked by the terrain piece. 1 max. block regardless of how many shrubs are between the shooter and the target.
Magic — No effect on magic
Combat — No effect on combat
Simple enough? Now go ahead and put together some shrubs terrain and use these rules for your next battle.
