Default Kroot Punji Traps query...

Greetings. It's hard to believe that this is my first post here despite having known of the forum for what feels like forever. I believe my DIY Marine Chapter even made it into the list posted here. Go figure...

Anyway, I've a question on Kroot Mercenary list Punji Traps. Their rule mechanics point to what can only be a passage from the the outdated Codex: Catachans. The current PDF version of said codex has Booby Trap rules on page 14. Would these be the same mechanics? i.e. the board being divided into 1' square sections to assign traps to...

Many thanks in advance!

Indeed so, and whenever the enemy rolls doubles for difficult terrain in those squares the unit is affected by the punji traps set there.

Very good. Thanks. Now, has anyone had positive experiences with using them? I've gotten tired of Marines for the moment and figured I'd give something radically different a spin. Punji Traps will fit the theme I'm looking for...

They make great anti-assault tools. If you can put seven inches of forest between you and the enemy, they'll be slugging in and making two rolls just to get at you. Alternatively, if you are worried that enemy infiltrators will take positions behind your force, laying them close to your formation's rear can also stall them, and so on for things like loot counters, table quarters, and king-of-the-hill.
