One of the hallmarks of Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade is combat. In our latest column, we offer ideas on ways that combat could be made more realistic. See what we propose before heading to the comments.
One word came into my head as I began to write what the battlefields should look like, Hazardous Terrain. I think there should definitely be aspects of the terrain in the video game taken from the tabletop. Moving and fighting over hazardous terrain brings some great challenges to the field. I can imagine having pools of acid or traps with spikes. Attempting to assault a bunker and getting caught on razor sharp wire. Most of all, there needs to be fire, the burning hell that is so well depicted in the 40K artwork needs to burn all around. This also plays into vehicles. Some vehicles should have to go around walls, while hopefully Land Raiders would go right through them.
