Hi I've been reading through both the old fanaticus and this threads and Battle reports lately and noticed a few discussions on the size of terrain features in Dba 3.0 games with the trend leaning towards smaller features.I was wondering what different members opinions are and what do you see as the advantages/ disadvantages to larger ir smaller terrain features?
I think it depends on how you want your army to operate, and what sort of army your opponent has. Interesting that you cannot change elements from game to game, except in special cases, but you can change terrain. What if there were a rule that you had to use the same terrain, and size thereof, in each game?
When selecting the terrain type and size I look at the army I'm using and that of my opponent. That said I tend to select smaller terrain rather than a larger item so I can place two items within the same sector, if required.
For example if using an Ax based army I would prefer two areas of bad going with a small gap between so that my opponent can manoeuvre between them and my Ax can attack out of the bad going effectively ambushing. A single large piece would generally be avoided by an opponent unless he had bad going troops.
