View Full Version : Movement penalty?

Is there a movement penalty for moving through difficult terrain?

Forgive my ignorance, but had my second game of 8th ed last week and my opponent (who was trying 8th for the first time) and I could not find anywhere that it stated that difficult terrain hampered movement or anything!

Page ref would be ideal along with a simple yes it does or no it does not anymore.

cheers in advance.

It doesn't normally.
The terrain thing is that it's dangerous for some unit types to perform certain actions in some types of terrain. For example, Cavalry charging through a forest must take a dangerous terrain test.
The terrain rules start on p.116 and the individual terrain types (hills, forests etc.) have their own sub sections on movement, so the Forests page has a paragraph about Forests and Movement on p.119 which tells you who takes dangerous terrain tests and when, for example.
