Baffled by setup instructions

Doesn’t seem to matter how many times I read the Setting up observer and snipers information on page 131, I can’t get my head around when to setup these models.
Do I have this right? –
Apart from attacker/defender scenarios & if in reserve, spotters/observers & snipers deploy AFTER? all others units have gone down on the table or BEFORE?October 10, 2020 at 3:08 pm #182317Master ChiefParticipant
Bolt Action 2nd Ed rules page 131:
If, on the other hand, they are chosen as one of the units you set-up on the table, or they are in the first wave, then their own special set-up rules take precedence. In this case, wait for the normal set up to be finished, and then set up any spotters /observers /snipers according to their special rules before the start of turn 1.
So they set up after all other units have set up.October 11, 2020 at 12:34 am #182323Stuart HarrisonParticipant
“Apart from attacker/defender scenarios & if in reserve, ”
There is nothing preventing their being set up using forward deployment during attacker/defender scenarios, only if in reserve. The second para even tells you the order they set up for attacker/defender scenarios. “In an Attacker-Defender scenario the defender sets up his spotters, observers and snipers first. Otherwise the players alternate setting up one unit at a time…”
It’s not a prohibition, just defender first rather than alternating within their part the set up.
