I was playing a game of warhammer 40k last Saturday. I'd like u if u can to evaluate the board and scenery that was used if u can please. The mission played was patrol

Board size - 72 inches by 50 inches

Terrain:
4 'hills' measuring 15 inches by 12 inches by 8 inches.
4 fortifications/bunkers, one of them measuring 18 inches by 12 inches by 6 inches (didn't measure the others - they weren't as big but fairly big)
1 impassable river measuring 50 inches by 12 inches - only one bridge spanning it measuring 12 inches by 6 inches
Loads (and I mean loads) of little pieces of scenery - walls, bushes, mounds, broken walls, pipes, rocks etc inbetween them
I'd have said that about 3/4 of the board overall was covered with scenery

I personally think that this was a ridiculous amount of scenery (as i said, this was a normal Warhammer 40k patrol mission not any kind of city fight) However could I have your comments about whether you think this is:

Not enough scenery
Perfect amount of scenery
Way, way too much scenery

way way too much scenery... especially the river with only one bridge, that can be completely unfair...

hills are good but by the sound of it there were way too many little pieces of scenery... imo....

the crazy thing was that the scenery was set up by a space marine (BT) player allied with chaos, fighting against tau and eldar...the battle was set up for a firefight better a firepower and comabt armies by one of the combat players! mad! needless to say that we were victorious by a long margin!

I was told about 25% of the board should be scenery. Of course a City Fight setup would be different...

I just got 2 gaming boards this weekend so I'll have to see for myself.
