McNathanson Posted October 29, 2015 Report Share Posted October 29, 2015 Hey folks, We keep running into clunky issues where a base won't fit entirely on one elevation or another. After looking at a wide variety of scenarios, and considering the implications (especially regarding base-to-base contact) we are leaning toward counting a model as being "on" more than one height of terrain at a time, so long as the difference is no more than ht1. So for example a model climbing stairs is placed on a ht2 stair tread, with its base overhanging onto a ht1 tread. The center of the base is on the ht2 tread. In this case, we are counting the model as being "at" ht2 (meaning e.g. if it is a ht2 model, then its total ht is ht4). But we are also considering its part of the base hanging off to be on the ht1 tread, so that a model on the ht1 tread can still count as base-to-base, LoS can be drawn to the part of its base on the ht1 tread, etc. The alternatives are also imperfect (and so far, we think, worse) for a variety of reasons I don't want to go into because of time... but if you have encountered similar clunkiness, what do YOU do (especially looking at you Mach5!) Consider stuff like a 30mm square crate with a 50mm model standing on it. Or a 40mm wide ramp and a 50mm model wanting to climb it. Or a 40mm wide ramp and a model wanting to push onto it from a slight angle. Etc.Thanks,Nathan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
