Default Reserves rule?

I just wanted to make sure that I understand this correctly. I've played several games using the new rules but haven't yet used the Reserves rule/tactic from pg. 94.

Does this mean that any unit, as many units as we wish, can be held in reserve until rolled in as per the Reserves Table?

I've yet to see a statement mentioning only so many units can be held in reserve, so I would say you can hold as many in reserve as you wish.

It depends some on the mission, but yes. Some units (flyers if you're using them, tyranid lichtors or spore mines, chaos daemons, etc.) MUST be held in reserve, and you can usually put your entire army in reserve if you want. Also, some missions will specify that you must place a few units like the mandatory 2 troops on the field at deployment.

Unless specified, though, you can hold as much reserve as you want. Under the new rules you do have to declare what kind of reserve they are: Deep Strike, Outflank, or regular "walk on from your table edge."

I've held units in reserve to outflank and was quite pleased with the results. I just hadn't considered holding back other units and haven't seen anyone else do it either, yet. Thanks.
