Just a couple of points I need clearing up before my next game...

1) If a squad of 10 assault marines is spilt into combat squads can they Deep Strike in two 5 man squad formations (so long as they arrive in the same turn)? Or do they have to arrive on the board as one unit and split later?

...and

2) Can you have two 5 man combat squads (from the same unit) in one transport at the start of the game?

I've looked through the Codex and can't see anywhere that gives a definitive answer to these situations.

in the codex it says "if you decide to split a unit into combat squads, then each combat squad is treated as a separate unit for all the game purposes from that point" with means that every unit must be by it self.
1) you deep strike every unit by it self.
2) a transport can only carry one unit. so the answer is no
hope it helps!

The exception to #2 is if the transport is a drop pod, then they can arrive together then split up.
