Wagon Tabor deployment

Given the size of a wagon base 80x60 mm plus the gap you are allowed between them you can create a line of 5 wagons that is nearly 2 foot long!

a) Can you deploy them in a straight line perpendicular to you base line, so that they stick out of deployment area or,

b) Do they have to curve round in some way to stay within the deployment area or,

c) Do they all have to be within 3" of your baseline?

As the text talks about using them to protect a flank I would discount C) as being compulsory, but something you could do as an option.

I think of option b. No deloyment outside the regular zone, but i made the idea that the unit is not linear and i don't know if it is right.

Hi Bob,
looks like deploying a wagon Tabor will need some thought.
a) Unless the scenario states differently you couldn't deploy outside your deployment area.
b) This seems the most likely as the rules for wagon Tabors state that the wagons are "..placed in formation up to 3" apart with the wagon at one end within 3" of the owning players table edge."
c) No but see above. There's nothing in the rules to prevent you doing this though, although tactically, if the wagon's defenders are forced to flee, they won't remain on the table.

I think option b, will be the answer but I am very interested to find out if a, is legal?

Yes option B is fine.
