Today we'll take a look at how terrain works in Conan: Savage Legends.
Terrain is an integral part of any miniatures game, and Conan: Savage Legends is no different. The terrain you do battle over should be carefully considered when you choose the tactics that will bring you victory. There are four common types of terrain in Conan: Savage Legends, and you can get a glimpse of each of them on the section of map below.
In addition to the beautiful artwork, you will notice the following types of terrain:
Open Hexes: these hexes are clear of any debris, and your miniatures will be free to move over them. However, Open Hexes in Conan: Savage Legends offer an additional benefit that most other games don’t have. If you start a move (or draw range for an attack) from an open hex, that move or attack will be able to go two additional hexes, so long as all of the hexes you move along are open hexes. This opens up some interesting tactical opportunities, allowing you to strike your opponent when they thought they were safe.
Hindering Hexes: when a miniature moves (or draws range) through a Hindering Hex, it counts as two hexes. A section of Hindering Hexes can be a perfect place to bog down your opponent, or sit just out of range of their attacks.
Impassable Hexes: miniatures may not move (or draw range) through Impassable Hexes. Impassable Hexes define the board, creating choke-points and interesting configurations for you and your opponent to fight over.
Normal Hexes: these hexes do not confer any penalty or bonus.
In addition to these common terrain types, each player will get to place a special piece of terrain before the game begins.
This is The High Throne. While your Legend occupies The High Throne, you may activate one of your minions after playing a Leadership Tactic Card. In this way, your Legend may sit on the throne and command your minions to do their bidding! Of course, this is just one example of the many special pieces of terrain that will be available in Conan: Savage Legends. Each one will create a new play experience, giving you almost unlimited replay value and different tactics to try on an ever-changing battlefield!
