I am still little bit confused about setup

1. May I deploy my army within four squares of the shortest edge on every map? OR do I have to follow predetermined deploy zones, like they are shown in ROTS starter rules (blast door..)?

2. Do the miniatures have to be adjacent to each other, or can I split the army? I havenĀ“t found any word about that

Thanks

Standard set up rules is within 4 squares of the shortest sides of the map. This is on pg. 16 of the new rulebook.

You can set them up anywere within 4 of the short end of the map. They do not have to be grouped up.

Reason #173 why the base WotC maps suck... Bespin = death for huges

I've been thinking about that one for a while and consided the following suggestion for the floor rules (not sure if I ever mentioned it for feedback from the huddled masses...)

CURRENT:
All miniatures must start within four squares of the shortest edge chosen by the player who gets to choose first.

REVISED:
All miniatures must start with some part of their base within four squares of the shortest edge chosen by the player who gets to choose first.

The CURRENT wording could actually be interpreted this way anyway, but for whatever reason it creates a new form of counting that defines an area rather than counting like Range is counted (the shortest distance.)

This gives huges a 2 square head start, and helps on a couple maps with problem start areas (notably Bespin right and Coruscant left)

Jason, I think that is an excellent idea!

I wouldn't mind a change like that either.
