    Combat Squads connundrum

    So a 10 man marine squad can break into 2 5 man squads. but there is no mention as to the composition of these 2 squads hence my question. Am I allowed to place all of my "special" weapons into the same 5 man squad or must I evenly distribute them between the 2 squads?

    You can break them up however you want. One squad has the powerfist, one has the heavy weapon. The fist goes to assault, the weapon holds a rear objective or sits on high ground.

    What he said. The preferred way to do is is to get the heavy weapon in one combat squad, and the specialist and squad leader into the other combat squad. Exact results may vary depending on your unit and weapons loadout, of course.

    Another common variant is to put 5 in a drop pod with melta, multi-melta, and combi-melta and use it for AT purposes

    Go look up the latest FAQs - you can't put half of a squad into a drop pod using combat squads, it's all or nothing.
