Web Barrier Straight Lines


Recommended Posts

Scenario: a miniature on a 35mm base is between two Web Warriors miniatures that are within range 3 of each other.  The web warriors choose to play Web Barrier and meet the requirements.  The 35mm based miniature is between them, effectively centrally between them in all relevant axes. 

(1) Is the "straight line" drawn between the two relevant Web Warriors from any point on their bases, or from the closest point to the closest point? (Particularly relevant if one or more of the playing Web Warriors is on a larger base; e.g.: Amazing Spider-Man and/or Venom are the playing models.

(2) If all three models are functionally aligned, effectively forming a straight line at all points, with the middle miniature effectively central between them, is there any point on the middle mini's base (the non-web warrior, who is being affected by the barrier) where a movement tool can be laid without overlapping the barrier?  Specifically, perfect alignment not withstanding, considering a situation where a miniscule portion of the circular base lies beyond any straight line drawn and the tool can be placed in a way that some part of the tool is not within the line, but the nubs of the tool would overlap the line.

1. The straight lines are from any point on the bases of the characters. Essentially the width of the bases involved. 

2. It is not possible to perfectly place the miniature in the manner you are describing. If the placement is close enough to the situation you describe there will be no way to place the movement tool in such a way as to prevent it from crossing the line. The miniature will have to Climb to get out of the barrier in this situation.

And this climb is always going to be a short movement because the barrier has no size relevant to fliers or wall crawlers?

Also, characters with attacks that ignore LOS can still use those attacks from inside this barrier correct?

Yes, it will always be a short movement.
