Me and my friend are new to Warhammer fantasy, and we have been wondering...

Is there rules/guidelines for table size, and the amount of terrain used for X pts game size?

ex. 1500 pts game = table 1.2m/1,6m and 5 pieces of terrain

Depends how big the terrain is really.
On a typical 6ftx4ft board you'de expect the terrain to cover around 1/4 of it if you arrange it all in one corner.
Maybe more.

You do need smaller pieces in amongst the bigger stuff though.
ie. fences, hedges and standing stones in amongst the hills, buildings and woods.

No point having 5 pieces of terrain if they're all singular trees.
Similarly, no point having 5 pieces of terrain if they're all large hills.

thanks :)

Makes sense that you can calculate because of the various sizes, but a 1/4 of the table sounds reasonable ;)

We use a card system that gives between 5 and 10 pieces of terrain. That tends to look all right, but if anyone has any tips on how to make terrain add something to a battle beyond looks (and doing it in a way that doesn't overly favour either player), let me know.
