All,

Good discussion, but I would play it as it is written; there is no deployment restriction on your table edge.

But what about close assault? Can you deploy on the table edge and close assault firing first too?

If you’re deploying as reserves onto the table edge you cannot initiate close combat- page 76 16.1. Declare An Assault a unit must be given a move and/or fire order to initiate close combat. Deploying from reserves is a different order.

I’m sure this thread has come up somewhere else of the forum??
