How do chain link Fences work as far as the rules are concerned? I can't find anything about them in CoD or the 40K rule book. Does anyone use fences? and if so how?
Like "Counts as" but counts as what? or does someone have suggestions for house rules?
It is entirely possible i had a "Brain Fart" and just didn't see rules for them, or it didn't register or something, so please if'n ya can give me a page number or something.
Any help is appreciated
They would be linear terrain (i.e. cover from shots over the fence) granting a fairly low cover save. Agree with your opponent beforehand as to what it should count as.

I'd say a 6+ cover save and if you wanted to cross it it would take a full turn. Or could be cut with a power weapon?
Generally fences provide a 6+ save and difficult terrain.
Chain Fences tend to be higher and stronger than other fences (like wire) though so maybe impassable terrain and 6+ cover.

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
something like that. It's starting to sound good.
How about like barricades once a vehicle goes through it, it's no longer there. But that brings up the question
"If i'm using 6 inch sections of chain link is the whole section gone or just the part where the vehicle went through?"
My friends played a chain link fence as impassible for troops, no cover. Though I like the idea of 6+ cover. We also played that if a vehicle goes through it it becomes difficult terrain for troops and its the entire section that becomes difficult, not just the part the tank went through.
This makes me wonder though, do people treat Monstrous Creatures link vehicles and allow them to pass through terrain like this, like a vehicle? Its never come up in our home games since no one uses Monstrous creatures, but one friend just started up Nids, so we'll run into this soon. I imagine we'll go with a house rules that Monstrous Creatures can pass terrain like this like a Walker/Vehicle, they would take the normal difficult terrain test though.
