I get the feeling I'm missing something obvious here, but my husband and I can't figure out which minions are melee and which are ranged. We understand the mice due to the weapons they have, but the minions are less clear. I assume the rats are melee because they are carrying swords? And thematically it seems like the roaches would be melee as well. Are the large minions (spider and centipede) then considered ranged?
We are looking and looking in the rulebook to try to figure this out, even though this seems really basic.
Look at the initiative card for the minion. If the icon behind the attack value is a sword, then they are melee. If it is a bow, then they are ranged. For instance, Rat Warriors are melee, but Elite Rat Warriors are ranged.
