Put the entire RCC army in one hex, and send in Sizemore with a stack of Dwagons... he could do some terrible damage to their forces. Dirtamancy seems to be able to hit very large areas with single spells, from what we've seen. If all the RCC forces were capable of hitting Gobwin Knob on the same turn, spreading them out over multiple hexes reduces the chances of a counterattack.

Across multiple hexes." with utter incredulity -- apparently their popped-in knowledge and/or their experience says that such a thing is impossible. Conversely, there may be known Dirtamancy traps (and other things, perhaps) that affect all units in a single hex. If so, that's a good reason to spread out a bit.

That logic doesn't fit with the Expository Bridge.
Ansom and his brothers meet in the center of it, indicating where the Hex barrier lies. we can grasp some idea of the minimum size of the hex, by looking at the layout of the Jetstone army. The bridge clearly does not have the width to it to make up the entire side of a hex. The hex has a part of it that is land, a part of it that is water, and maybe a part of it that has half a bridge over it. Depending on the rules these may all qualify as different terrain types and all are present within a single non-city hex.
