how do you resolve moving up and down simple hills on terrain like on the pictures?
Do you substract the height from allowed move distance, or you just ignore the height? Do you allow vechicles to move up hills?
In my neighbourhood peple play only space marine with tanks that stay still and shoot, or tau with skrimmers and they dont know what to do with my orkish trucks.
The first pic we tend to base it on how much of an angle its at. If its pretty much vertical and more or less the height of the model then we class it as 3", same as moving up a level in a building, if its half the height or less just keep on moving as normal. Still classed as difficult terrain though.
The second pic is just normal difficult terrain as they would be classed as area terrain.
well were i play we just ignore the hight and just move normaly,however if you cant place the vehcle on the board then you must move it
Same. Hills are treated as open terrain unless decided on otherwise.
Just come up with something amongst yourselves.
Hills on the boards made by GW are generally considered to not be there but if you place a hill model onto the board then it's just normal difficult terrain.
For us, normal hills (that have nothing else on them) are considered open terrain, regardless of whether the terrain piece itself is sloped or stepped, so there's no problem for anything moving over them. They do act as useful line-of-sight blockers as well.
"Peace, through superior firepower."
We generally have two types of hills, using both GW terrain and the Realm of Battle gameboard.
If there is a clean slope up and down, with no jut or edge greater than the half the height of an infantry model, it's considered open terrain.
If there are areas where there is no easy path, such as a crag or edge that would visibly seem hard to get up and down, it's considered difficult terrain.
The first photo we consider open terrain, except when jumping between levels. That's a difficult terrain check and probably takes 1" off the total move to account for the height difference. Once you're on that level, you're in open until you want to change levels again. The second photo we would just consider difficult terrain.
Were I you, though, I would just talk to your gaming group about it. There is no particular right way to do it, it's just what you guys think would be the most fun.
