Shooting through impassible terrain.

Post by Geoffrm on Wed Aug 17, 2016 7:05 am

I just want to clarify can you shoot through impassible terrain if that terrain is a pond or suchlike. I do not believe you can as there is no visibility in impassible terrain but there are a couple at the club who do think it is possible if a pond or marsh.

Hi Geoff

Personally I would play that you can shoot through if it is a marsh / pond type impassable terrain feature.

Just my opinion though ..........

I've with Jez on this, shooting over a terrain piece that doesn't block vision seems reasonable

I'd deploy the toffee hammer on anyone suggesting I couldn't shoot over a river because it was impassable.

Mind I'd ensure that any on table pond or river was wide enough to make it a non-issue, basically if it's over short range across it's unlikely to be an issue (except for artillery which is rare in our games)

Good point .... .my lake terrain piece is quite small so for 25 mm games I usually combine it with some marshy ground to make a larger impassable piece of terrain BUT definitely play can shoot across it.

Also I have a brilliant piece of mountain terrain that just fits within the 25 mm terrain size restrictions and looks impressive - no arguing its impossible to shoot through this. For some reason it always seems to be removed by the other player though so rarely make a show on the table top.

we usually specify before a game (when placing terrain) if you can fire through (impassable terrain is flat, eg a pond) or not.

I agree with Lorenzo. It should be specified and agreed on before start of play.

A lot of Australian rivers, just as an example, have high rushes on either bank, suitable for hiding behind and definitely acting as a barrier. Swamps are not dams, vegetation is throughout them.

Just agree beforehand.
