If you take a Numidian or Skythian ally as all light horse their general can only deploy with them if you deploy them at 12 mu.
Is this an oversight or intentional?

You could deploy them at 12 MU plus however deep their battle group is. If they are in 6s they could deploy at 17 inches in and still be with their general.

Typo. I meant 18 inches.

It is intentional. You have 3 choices:
1) Don't deploy your general with any BG
2) Deploy one of the BGs in the 12" deployment zone
3) Deploy one of the LH in column with its rear edge in contact with the general in the deployment zone.

I know what the choices are Terry, I find it daft.

However in future I shall get a six and deploy it in column contiguous with the other ally BGs

It's not so daft - Given that both those allied lists have compulsory Cavalry which must also deploy within the 12MU zone.
