Default Need help clarifing deployment of Guardsmen

Abit of a dilemma here.

My IG player freind deploys his guardsmen as other army's normally would, seperately.

My SOB player deploys them as a 'platoon' sort of thing. If he had three groups of 10 guards men, he would deploy them in the same part, one behind the next in 5 model lines.

Is my IG freind deploying incorrectly and my SOB is. Or are the rules different for the respective armies

As far as I know, because an Imperial Guard Infantry Platoon consists of several seperate squads, but counts as a single Troops choice, all squads in the Platoon must all be deployed at the same time. Therefore the SOB player is deploying correctly.

they have to be deployed at the same time, BUT, they don't need to be deployed in the same place.

The SOB player is correct. You place a TROOP CHOICE all at the same time.

Elessar's got it. The entire platoon (all 25-55 models in 3-6 squads) must deploy at the same time as one troops choice. But each squad can be deployed to a separate location.
