Terrain features on the battlefield can play a decisive role in any battle. Hills, mountains, forests and rivers can be used to conceal troops or funnel an enemy’s advance.
- Most troop-types can be hidden in forests, as long as they walk or remain stationary.
- Units with the high ground enjoy a significant advantage when fighting on sloped terrain.
- Steep slopes are impassable, and may be used to cover the flank of an army.
- Hills and other terrain features can obscure visibility, allowing units to be hidden from the enemy’s line of sight.
