contiguous Trenches Sun, 26 July 2009 19:32
Ok well i know that moving from 1 terrain hex to another counts as a move so the effects of the the new Hexes battle and movement restrictions would apply. This make perfect sense for forests and villages etc but would two joined trench hexes be considered contiguous ? Seems to make a certain logic that if you are in a trench and move to a trench in the next hex that maybe you shouldn't apply the "entry" restrictions as you were already in the trench network ?

I may use this as a houserule so All thoughts much appreciated thanks

Well, trenches (connected or otherwise) are more restrictive than open terrain.

Again, scale comes into play. Think not of a single column of troops moving along a single trench but a deeper area of entrenchments and you'll see the logic of applying the rough terrain restrictions of the trenches hex.

On reflection i would agree. The relocation and setting up of troops within in the same trench network would justify the restrictions applied. Sometimes i loose sight of the very variable scale of the memoir encounters and drop into skirmish mode in my head.

Thanks for the replies Smile
