Scatter terrain consists of smaller pieces of terrain that can be scattered about the battlefield to provide cover, objectives, and flavor. These are especially useful in many skirmish-level games, where moving from cover to cover while under enemy fire is essential. Scatter terrain can also be combined with other terrain features to create a wide variety of settings – for example, surrounding gravestones with some broken stone walls can create a thematic piece of area terrain for a horror-themed skirmish game.
