When a unit is in skirmish formation.....

Is it legal for 11 figures to deploy 4/3/4

Can a unit of 12 deploy 2/3/2/3/2 rather than 3/2/3/2/2

If using the later 3/2/3/2/2 where do the last two go .... both outside corners or must one sit in the center and one on a corner.

Just a couple of things I want to check before I make more movement trays...

This is interesting, what are you up to?

High time we had an Olympus vs Aegyptus dust up?

Let's collude this weekend...

for 11 figures I'm pretty sure that 4/3/4/ is ok

for 12 figures...I would tend not to do the 2/3/2/3/2 and go with 3/2/3/2/2, with the last two one on one corner and one in the middle, so when it collapses it forms a 5/5/2 block

Having said that RAW doesn't invalidated the 2/3/2/3/2 formation, and in game terms it shouldn't make too much of a difference as it has the same footprint as 3/2/3/2/2 (5x5)

I'd have to dig out my movement trays, but for Aegyptus I suspect I did 3/3/3/3, which would collapse to 6/6. I don't recall if I did anything different for Olympus, although I believe the formation requirements were a bit more strict.
