    Line of sight of monsters

    I know that single characters have a 360 line of sight as if they were skirmishers, is this the same as for Monsters?

    Page 8 of the BRB. They have a diagram of a Character on a Wyvern and it looks like it has a 90 degree arc of sight. Underneath it says that the Character on the Wyvern cannot see the unit outside of said 90 degree arch.

    Mind that is all I can find and I haven't actually fully read through a BRB in like 5 years, so there is a good chance I have no idea what I am talking about ~_~ I really should try actually reading this thing.

    They count as a R&F unit for purposes of determining LoS. Page 58, second column, final paragraph.

    "Each monster is, in effect, a unit of one model and it has a front (used to determine its arc of sight as normal), flanks, and a rear as normal.

    Also refer to the diagram on Page 59.

    It's not single characters as such but any US1 model on foot. A character on a horse for instance only has a 90 degree arc.
