yeah I don'y know why they got rid of retinues, as they were very fluffy and so on. They could have at least left a option in the HQ section saying something like they make take a unit of chosen / termies as a retinue, even if they didn't have any special abilities.
For now then, all HQ's have to be deployed seperately from other units, though may 'join' other units if both are deploying in the conventional manner (ie no deepstrike, infiltrate etc.)and meet all the usual rules about joining units.
