One Infantry unit on a hill hex can fire at a enemy infantry unit wich is adjacent with normal dice (4)? and if the enemy infantry unit attack would be roll only 3 dice? and if the 2 units are in the hill? both the units would roll 3 dice because the -1 dice protection on the hill?

And if we have this: One Infantry unit on a hill hex, other adjacent hill hex with no units and a enemy infantry unit on a hill hex. Like a Platou effect , in memoir 44. Can i have a Los and fire with 3 dice?

If the units are on adjacent hills, there should be zero dice adjustment. The -1 dice against a unit on the hill is of course derived from the hill being an advantage - but only over those below...

And yes - Infantry on hill, adjacent empty hill, and the next hex is an enemy on the hill, three dice - there are no adjustments other than distance - LOS is fine, and no adjustments for terrain ( see above ).

Hill hexes in BattleCry don't plateau. The rules on page 8 of the Avalon Hill (2000) version state that the -1 battle dice modifier still applies, even if the enemy unit is on an adjacent Hill hex. I'm pretty sure they work the same way in the newer 150th Anniversary Edition. I'll double check those rules later...

You are correct - no plateau effect with the hills. Just a silly unchanged rule from the original versions. I would now suggest that they act just like the hills in the C&C series.

Actually, I find this one of the charms of BattleCry. Nothing silly about it, IMO. Not all hills are bare and plateau at the top!
