This campaign uses the jungle fight rules found here: http://uk.games-workshop.com/imperialguard/catachan%2Drules/1/
In short the amount of terrain is greatly increased from the norm of 25-50% that I usually see to easily 70-90%. This
map included a single clearing with some ruined walls and a long trail with a clear hill and an area of dangerous terrain.
Thats it, all the rest was jungle.

Believe it or not I can actually fit 2 skimmers in a 400 point game. Both
FW squads came in at exactly 100 ponts, both skimmers were also exactly 100. 400 on the nose. The Devilfish just squeezes
into the armor requirements for combat patrol.

the right. Both My tanks sat off to the left of the clearing side by side. Black Templars went first.
Everybody walked up.
