Default Problem with deepstrike

Something about deepstriking has been bothering me for the last few days... I would like to deepstrike a special weapon squad in my IG army, them being the only squad to do so (the rest are ground based). However I am not 100% sure that this is legal, so I have some edited quotes for and against this. Can someone give me an official answer please?

IG Codex
p39 top
Quote:
"a command platoon counts a a single unit[...] However, each sub unit may deploy or arrive in a different location and act independantly."


p55 bottom left
Quote:
"Guard infantry[...]special weapons squads[...]"

>With no referance to hq squads

p56 top
Quote:
Drop troops[...]Any guard infantry unit without chimera transport[...]

However in the BGB under reserves, it says something of the following:

pg84
"[...]each section from the force organisation chart is diced for seperately at the start of the player's turn[...]


Can someone help?

thanks

Nick

I fail to see the confusion.

The Codex lists which units are classed as "Guard Infantry", and all Guard Infantry squads may Deep Strike, providing they are not given a Transport.

but other people (on other forums) are saying that they would have to be deployed at the same time as the other part of their force organisation chart (eg HQ)...

Well as the Special Weapon Squad is deep-striking, it won't set up, and will remain in reserve instead. The rest of the HQ sets up as normal.
