Monster in rectangular ruins

Fri Sep 09, 2011 3:29 am

Someone mentioned a balrog hiding in some ruins on another board and it got me thinking, If a monster is occupying ruins that are on a rectangular base, can more than one company from a given formation be in base contact with them?

Monsters are normally on round(ish) bases and it specified that only one company per formation can contact them, but the defensible terrain rules say that all companies contacting the terrain fight directly.

Just wondering what people thought.

I would say the rules for defensible terrain over-rule the ones for monsters. Therefore a monster in a defensible terrain feature can be attacked directly by multiple companies from multiple formations at the same. Its kinda the price you pay for the extra defence, just like with any formation in a defensible terrain feature, you become a bigger target.
