Default deployment i "dawn of war" setup

OK, the rulebook says the player who goes first deploy up to 2 units of his troop selection and a one unit of his HQ selection.

If you play IG then that could be 2 units guardsmen, but then you also need the command squad, and the up to three.

And if you play SM you can make combat squads, make one unit into two.

So the point, is it choices or units you are deploying?

Its units period, not choices.

So a 10 squad of marines is 1 and a combat squad-ed of 5 and 5 marines counts as two.

Also a dedicated transport counts as a one of your troop units for the purposes of deployment if you want to put it out. And before you ask it cant score itself because it has a armor value.

but what about IG... there troops.

if you only have infantry platoons, which at least consist of 3 units then will only be able to place HQ units...

it force you to take other then those platoons.

It counts as FOC slots for purposes of DOW set up. So guard can plonk down two entire platoons and a HQ then laugh at the enemy.
