What shape is the area of an objective point?



Asked this elsewhere but it wasn't really appropriate so I'm giving it its own topic. 

Is an objective:

1. A point with a flat 6" circle around it

2. A point with a half dome 6" bubble around it

6. A point with 6" cylinder around it that extends upward to eternity

Obviously the size can vary but the question still stands.

This is how I've always played it, unfortunately after doing some research I can't find specifically worded rules to support my assumption other than the normal objective wording. 

I agree with you and it is right here in the core rules:


"When measuring distances to and from objectives, always measure to and from the centre of the marker."

(https://www.games-workshop.com/resources/PDF/AoS_Rulesheets/ENG_AoSSW_Rules_booklet_web.pdf, page 11)


The objective itself is a single point located upon the plane of the battlefield. The "scoring area" (I think that is what you mean @Vextol?) is the set of all the  points with a distance of 6" or less from the objective. Reading this sentence again, we should probably call it the "scoring space" instead.

You guys are wrong though and you rule reference proves it.

Its actually a sphere since you are not required to place the objective on the ground but in the battlefield so it could be placed inns tower or on a bridge.

"[...] the set of all the points with a distance of 6" or less from the objective."

That is literally the definition of a sphere, so there you go.
