Anyone that uses Taiko for Samurai warfare, how do you handle built up areas such as villages and small shines?

The rules are a little vague on this subject.

I use 15mm figures based 40mm wide with 5 figs to a base (nominally).

Used to play it fairly often but haven't played it for a couple of years. Never tried battles in built up areas though. I really don't there were many battles inbuilt upareas.

Not as much 'in' a BUA but if you have a village on the board is it impassable, difficult terrain, etc?

I would simply classify them like any other terrain – difficult or very difficult as their situation suggsts.

That's what I figured. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. I'm planning to make some BUA based approx 4 6" in an irregular diameter (village, town, temple, or shrines) and I can just put them together to form larger areas. I'm collecting for the battle of Domyoji so I'm building some if the kofun tombs as well. They'll be easy just plain impassable.

Thanks for the advice.
