Requirements

  • Troopers must apply the Very Difficult Terrain rules when their base is inside or in contact with a Very Difficult Terrain area and they declare a Movement Skill such as Move, Cautious Movement, Jump, Climb, the Special Skill Assault (in Active Turn), Dodge and Engage (in Reactive Turn).
  • Very Difficult Terrain also affects troopers who make base contact with it during an Order.

Effects

  • Entering base contact with a Very Difficult Terrain area immediately and automatically ends the trooper's Movement, regardless of its type.
  • If the trooper chooses to continue to move through the Very Difficult Terrain area, he must declare a new Order and suffer the following effects:
    • In Very Difficult Terrain, troopers use only their second MOV value.
    • In Very Difficult Terrain, troopers cannot declare two Short Movement Skills in the same order.
  • During their Reactive Turn, troopers in Very Difficult Terrain that declare Dodge or Engage or fail a Guts Roll can move no more than 1 inch.

Movement through Very Difficult Terrain. Example 1

A trooper in Active Turn with a MOV Attribute of 4–2 is outside a Very Difficult Terrain area. She declares the Short Movement Skill Move and makes contact with the Very Difficult Terrain, whereupon her Movement ends immediately, even if she would normally be able to move the rest of her MOV (for example, if she had moved 3 inches, she would forfeit her remaining 1 inch). She would need to declare a new Order to keep moving, applying the effects of Very Difficult Terrain.

Similarly, in her Reactive Turn, she declares Dodge outside the Very Difficult Terrain area, and her Dodge moves her into contact with the Very Difficult Terrain, whereupon her Dodge movement ends immediately, even if she had not exhausted it.

Movement through Very Difficult Terrain. Example 2

A trooper in Active Turn with MOV 4–2 that is in base contact with a Very Difficult Terrain and declares Move + BS Attack gets to move up to 2 inches.

That same trooper in contact with a Very Difficult Terrain area in his Active Turn cannot declare Move + Move.

In his Reactive Turn, the trooper would only be able to move up to 1 inch, half the usual movement granted by Dodge and Engage.

If the trooper had the Special Skill called Kinematika L1, he could move up to 2 inches in his Reactive Turn (1 for Dodge or Engage + 1 for Kinematika L1).
