Default Outflank + spearhead?

I would like some clarification on table sides when it comes to spearhead deployment, are the corners that you do not deploy on are where you can outflank on?

I assume you mean reserves? Outflanking is always done on the short edges and done randomly, see pg. 94. For reserves you use the long table edge even in spearhead.

Outflank works the same as always no the default missions. 1,2 left side, 3,4 right side, 5,6 you choose. In spearhead this means that 1/3 of the time you'll enter on the side of the board that is nearly devoid of enemies. Not bad for shooty outflankers, but unfortunate for units like Kommandos or Kroot.
