A character model is moved and fights as an individual piece, except that he may also join up with and fight alongside units of troops as described below.
Characters move and fight in different ways depending on their size (unit strength) and on the mount they are riding into battle:
Man-sized characters on foot (normally mounted on a square 20mm or 25mm wide base), have a unit strength of 1 and follow the movement rules for skirmishers.
Characters that are larger than this (having a unit strength of more than 1), or that are mounted on a cavalry steed or a monster, follow the movement rules for monsters.
Characters riding in a chariot follow the movement rules for chariots.
