I assume that if a single tree or two appears on a hex, that is just an artistic flourish -- the hex is not considered to be a forest hex and has no impact on LOS?

Yes - I think I remembered to write it somewhere in the playbook (but dont have a reference at the moment).

You did I can't remember where but pretty sure you said less than 3 trees should be ignored. FWIW yes it does make the map look nicer but for my money nothing should never be on a wargame map that does not mean something.

I normally agree with you Lance, but in this case I think it works very well as the wood hexes are filled with trees in the entire hex while the other hexes only have 1-3 trees in them.

I have seen many maps where it was constantly hard to tell the terrain type, and Knut and I were determined that this not be the case with NGBG (and SIA), despite our wish to have the map look as good and natural as possible.

Two hundred and fifty years later, these trees will have grown and will block LOS in WW II tactical games. angry
