Can it be done? I looked in the Running section and in the Terrain section and it doesn't say. Not sure if that was intended or not.

I've always assumed you can run through difficult terrain, but at half speed (ie a warrior with Movement 4 could run a total of 4"), & you won't be able to shoot. That's certainly how I've always played it (in Mordheim, Necromunda, & others), & it hasn't broken the game.

Ok that is what we did and there didn't seem to be a problem; I just wasn't sure if we were having fun right. geek

We used to play that a warrior couldn't 'run' in difficult terrain because that is how Warhammer rules were at the time (couldn't march move). But That is not what it says in Mordheim, so yeah if the warrior can run, run (slowly).

Saying they can't run makes just as much sense, especially taking it from the Warhammer rules. Playing that way will certainly make Difficult Terrain a more significant part of the game. But as Von Kurst says, it's not what it says in the Mordheim book, so it's up to you. & I'm inclined to say that allowing running (slowly) keeps the game moving & opens up other tactical decisions, where making terrain too difficult can just make players avoid it.
