A strage situation arose the other day.
My wood elf scouts were attacked my some evil chaos types and soundly thrased. The survivors legged it 9 inches through a forest. The chaos persued 10 inches and should have destroyed them. However, Wood Elves suffer no penalties for moving through forests...so they survive right?

Firstly, p 43: "Pursuers ignore any penalties form obstacles and terrain."

Secondly, p 40 under "Remove fleeing units caugth" we are told that the caught unit dies "where they stand" if they do not make their roll. So you elves didn't actually make it 9 inches into the forrest. They didn't make it at all.

so YEs this is a very effective way to quickly get heavy cavalry through difficult terrain ;-).
