When Footprints Collide
URL Copied!

If a character's footprint does not fit neatly into a unit, place him on the edge of the unit, beside the front rank, facing the same direction as the rest of the unit, as shown below. In this case we do not assume the character's footprint to be filled by rank-and-file troops, and the character is ignored when working out the number of ranks in the unit and if it counts as a horde.

Neither of these characters’ base footprints fit neatly into their units, so they are placed at the side instead.
In the examples shown above, the first unit would count as having three ranks, as it is five models wide (the character is ignored). In the second example, the unit does not count as having ranks, as they are not five models wide without the character.
