Default Question about drop troops

Can i place infantry squads from a platoon on the field as normal, and then deepstrike the command squad? They are separate units, but are in the same force organization chart entry.

If the infantry squads aren't deep striking you don't have to put them in reserves. Just becasue they are drop troops don't mean that they have to deep strike. But the HQ is deep striking, so you will have to put it in reserves roll for it to come into battle out of reserve when deep striking the HQ.

If you had 1 infantry squad and the HQ deep striking you have to roll for them to come out of reserves at the same time with 1 roll and then deep strike them.

I have been wondering the same thing you have, but I hope that I have the correct understanding about deep striking from reading the rule book.

but since they're both part of the same Force Chart entry, i have to deploy them at the same time. so in theory id have to deepstrike the entire platoon. but that also means that my Command squad would have to deepstrike with its heavy weapon squads, which i really dont fancy.

When in the rule book does it say that because two units in the same force organization entry must all either deep strike/infiltrate or can not do it?

Default Re: Question about drop troops

page 81: When deploying units or rolling for arrival, the contents of one box on the Force Organization chart is considered to be a single entity.

my infantry squads and command squad are all one entity, meaning they have to deploy together. does that mean i can't deepstrike my command squad since i need to deploy it along with my infantry squads?

It also goes on saying that IG infantry squads and HQ deploy seperately.

Perhaps if you read the rest of that paragraph then you will find the answer
