This is probably a silly question, but when placing objectives is there any motivation for not just placing objectives as far away from your opponent as you can?

It's not that easy to do. You can't place them on starting hexes, incomplete hexes, blocked hexes, the outermost complete hexes (edge hexes), or any hex within two hexes of another objective.

The best place for objectives depends on your strategy, and how you've built your deck.

This. When playing my “I don’t want any one on objectives Khorne deck” I’ll shove the objectives as far away from the fight as possible. This is also good if you’re playing keep away Stormcast. But if you’re aggressive and want objectives placing them closer to the middle is probably better.

Several reasons:

You're a killy warband, and you want to draw the other guy out by placing objectives on your side, but within easy reach of your opponent.

You're a killy warband but also want to score some easy Glory with an objective, so place it close to the killing zone so your fighter doesn't miss all the action by taking the objective.

Last one can go on an Edge Hex. Just in case anyone reads this and forgets the rule. I know you know it but for anyone else.

This is a big one. Pile them all in your opponent's side so you don't have to delay bringing someone into the fight!

But you can only place them on your side of the board...

That's not what the rules say. You can place objectives anywhere on the battlefield (subject to the restrictions stated in the rules, of course).

(Edited for clarity. Because I need coffee.)

Huh. I've only played two games, so I must have misremembered that rule.

It feels counter intuitive, especially since both Starter Decks include so many Hold Objective cards.
