    If this movement expenditure to move from the Woods Hex I1 to J8
    A squad announces double time and moves from the woods hex I2 to I1 for 2 MF total 2
    From I1 to I10 using the road for 1 MF total 3
    Now the squad wants to move from I10 and bypass J8 If this is legal it cost 1 MF
    Moves 2 MF up the hill for 6

    The crux of the issue is: if you use only 1 to enter J8 can you then leave the hex via bypass for 1 MF

    See the photo attached.

    2MF I2 to I1: 2
    1MF I1 to I10 (road): 3
    1MF bypass J9: 4
    2MF J9 to J8 (crest): 6 total

    Are you sure you can use 1MF (road) going through I10? I would asume you are going through the woods for 2MF, for a total of 7MF. So I think this move from I2 to J8 can not be made by a squad alone. Can someone correct me if I'm wrong?

    Yes, it is possible, but at a cost. If a firer sees unhindered the road portion of the I1/I10 hexside, he can fire at -2 for FFMO/FFNAM.

    I think you are good for 6MF.
    BTW I like the perspective of your picture of the situation.

    I always thought it weird that I9 is four MP. It's easy to forget a Cx marker if you advance there. It might be a nice place to defend depending upon the situation.

    It looks like a sneaky but legal move. There is probably some kinda trail through the brambly thorn thicket to the house in I9, that's how I would rationalize it.

    "I always thought it weird that I9 is four MP"

    Actually the cost to move into I9 would depend on which direction you are coming from and what you want to claim . I would assume
    If you move in from H9 you could enter at the woods cost. Any fire at you would then be using the Woods +1 Tem but after the Defensive fire phase you could then claim the Building Tem +2. Conversely if you entered from J8 or J9 you could enter at the cost of the building. I believe there is an example that shows a unit entering a building at a cost of 1 using the road and says basically what I have tried to explain only with far fewer words. (bottom of example 4.133 page A6)

    You cannot go from I2 to I1 at a cost of 1MF nor use the road. You could however go from I1 to I10 using the road at an additional cost of 1MF (total 3MF). then bypass the wood in J9 (Total 4MF) and thence to J8 for a final total of 6MF spent.

    Sorry My written explanation was incorrect and now corrected. The image is correct.

    Unless there has been an errata published that I am unaware of, that is incorrect. Rule A2.4 specifies that 2I9 costs four MF to enter and has a TEM of +3.

    I stand corrected. I thought that TEM were not cumulative (Full Stop) But the rule reads they are unless explicitly stated otherwise. I can only think of 1 other multi terrained hex that would give you the TEM benifit of both. A Woods/Bridge hex as long as the fire crossed the bridge depiction, but I do not think that they exist on any published boards.

    Yep, its like a little fort out in the woods and any advance in is CX for CC.

    Lots of Stone Building-OliveGrove hexes in the Ortona HASL. +4 TEM, 3.5 MF to enter.
