Default Outflank and reserves qustion?

I know this rarely occurs but I've been thinking about it. Ok if I have a guard squad with a heavy weapons team come in from reserves and try to come on the board going into difficult terrain and roll two 1's would they be able to deploy on the table. The other 8 guys I don't see a problem. But the heavy weapons team base is bigger than an inch and they would be hanging off the table.

Well I'm pretty sure the whole base has to be on the board 0.o

Legally that's on the board, however should this unit fail a morale check "any part of the base touches the edge" forces the unit to die.

I think this would qualify under the "don't be a jerk" rule, meaning that only some looser who needs the win to prop up his week and crumbling self esteem would raise an argument over such a petty issue. If you run across such a person, let them have their way (they need it the poor pathetic wretches) and then never play with them again.

Just move the minimum distance to get the model on the board. Ignore others in the matter.

On page 94 of the rulebook under "Arriving from reserves", it states that if there is a rule that could prevent a unit from entering the table, that rule is ignored.

So yeah, either size and base are ignored and the model sits half off the edge ignoring the edge rule. Or the model gets an extra half inch free movement ignoring the difficult terrain check somewhat so that it can get it's entire base on the table.
