I have an issue that would impact a particular army list I'm cooking up. It concerns the usage of the USR 'Scouts.' Basically, is it required that you set up the unit with the 'Scouts' rule if you'd rather have them deployed in Reserves?
For references, I'm looking at page 75 of the BGB. The second line of the rule uses the word 'may' which indicates that you have a choice in the matter. However, the third sentence, which gives an example, states - "...Scouts would set up...."
The bold emphasis is mine. The word would indicates the lack of choice in the matter. If choice was to be implied, then the proper word would be could.
So what say you, Rules Gurus of 40K? Mandatory deployment, or voluntary? Just another case of improper editing techniques of GW?
Reserves is one of those things that ANY member of the army that is not expressly forbidden from using it, may opt to use. Mind you, the mission and mission special rules also has a say in it.
So, enjoy your "scout" army mate, and beware the dreaded alpha missions.
