wild cave squig question


The rules in the book are not quite clear to me. Maybe someone can help me out.

It's the wild squig attack.
what it says in the book is that at the start of the phase during which they appear, and each monster phase thereafter you have to roll a d6. On a 1 the moster falls asleep and does nothing, on a 2/4 it attacks one of the warriors. Draw a warrior counter to see which warrior is attacked. On a 5/6 the squig attacks the nearest monster.

Okay, now I would like to know how you place these monsters. Because according to the normal rules you have to devide them evenly amongst the warriors. But when you place them you have to roll for the attack, right? Because you have to roll at the start of the phase during which they appear. Then when exactly do you roll? After placing them next to the warriors? Because that would mean that they can just run off immediately and attack another warrior (whose counter was drawn)than the one they were placed next to.
So what's the deal?

Hmm, I think that we've always played it like it's written. We place the Squigs next to the Warriors according to the one-on-one rule, and then roll immediately. I think... It's been a while since we've encountered them...

They are crazy afterall, so I guess it represents them running around all over the place. Since if they don't actually go and attack another Warrior and fall asleep, they're still next to their original target.

no, then they would attack another monster. The nearest one.

Presumerably it might be easier to roll for each squig first to see what it did, then place them according to the rules- one on one with any excess dealt with via warrior counters, then place monster-attacking squiggies. I don't know where you'd put sleepers.
