A Big List of Warhammer Fantasy Hills

Roll 4D6 on this Chart of 20 Mysterious Hills

If you are looking for more variety to your Warhammer Fantasy games, I put together the following list of Mysterious Hills.

Following Bonepile Miniatures Terrain Rules for Mysterious Terrain, I recommend rolling a D6 for each hill on the battlefield before the start of the game. This is to determine whether each hill is a normal hill or if it is mysterious. On a 4+, a hill is mysterious. When encountering a mysterious hill for the first time during the game, roll on the 4D6 chart below. (4D6 means to roll (4) 6-sided dice and add the results together.)

4D6: 4 – Hill of Flame. 1st unit on top gains Flaming Attacks.

4D6: 5 – Hill of Clarity. Units on any part do not suffer long range shooting penalty.

4D6: 6 – Thunder Hill. Units on any part gain Armor Piercing (+1) for shooters.

4D6: 7 – Treasure Hill. Highest unit on the hill gains Stubborn.

4D6: 8 – Shadow Hill. 1st unit on top gains Fear.

4D6: 9 – Betrayal Hill. Hill moves D6 towards the opponent’s General after 1st unit reaches top.

4D6: 10 – Cursed Plateau. Unit on any part gains Stupidity for the game.

4D6: 11 – Rocky Slope. Units on any part cannot have Steadfast.

4D6: 12 – Hill of Plagues. Units on any part cannot save Wounds. No saves of any kind.

4D6: 13 – Magnetic Mound. Unit on any part has +1 or -1 Armor. Roll a D6 each turn. Gains on 4+.

4D6: 14 – Locust Hill. Shooters on any part take a -1 to Hit penalty.

4D6: 15 – Graveyard Mound. Highest unit on the hill re-rolls failed to Wound dice in Close Combat.

4D6: 16 – Chaos Hill. Chaos units while on any part lose Unstable. Regains after moving off.

4D6: 17 – Foggy Hill. Shooters on any part cannot Volley Fire, and lose 1/2 of normal range.

4D6: 18 – Sunny Hill. For the highest unit on the hill, all models can shoot.

4D6: 23 – Hero’s Hill. 1st unit on top gains +1 Leadership for the game. Applies to the highest ranking model.

4D6: 24 – Your Choice. Choose 1 from the above.

  • Effects only impact units encountering the hill, and do not apply to the whole army, unless specifically stated.
  • 1st unit on top refers to the first unit with any part on the highest part of the hill.
  • Effects are triggered when the first unit reaches the top of the hill.
  • Some effects may dissipate when units are no longer in base contact.
