What technically constitutes a monster? In the Lore of Beasts, The Beast Cowers applies specifically to monsters yet I can find no where where that keyword is specified or used other than the Unit Strength portion of the book. And that seems nebulous at best.
If I recall correctly, a moster is a multiwound model with a base larger than 25mm by 25mm and that do not have the "Chariot"/"War Machine". There may be a couple of exceptions as well.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
5000p. High Elves
I agree with herman with the added caveaut that I might would not consider units like Trolls/Ogres/Kroxigors/Ushabti to be 'monsters' either. I'm not sure if the rulebook specifically calls these units 'monster units' or 'units of monsters'. If that's the case, I retract my first statement.
I typically consider monsters either single models or ridden creatures.
I think a monster is defined as anything where the max unit size is one. And where it doesn't count as something else, chariot or warmachine for example.

I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Check page 7 of the rulebook. Everything fits into one of those categories. If it doesnt go anywhere else, its a monster!
it will also be defined as a monster in the corresponding army book!
