According to the rules, 50% of units, rounded up may be in reserves. Also, some units (flyers, drop pods) don't count towards the units counted in reserves.
But do we count the latter including or excluding the units that don't count in reserves?
- A - 2 HQ (independent character)
- B - 1 unit in a drop pod (with space for the HQ)
- C - 2 units that can deep strike
D - 2 units that can't start in reserves
Do we count 50% of 7 units (=4), and we can thus put both A with the unit B (counts for 2), and also put both C in reserves (count for 2), only fielding both units D at the start. This also means that we only actually fielded 28% of the army.
Do we count 50% of 6 units (B excluded), and thus can basically field like above except for either one HQ or one C. In this case we actually only field actually 43% of the army.
We played our last game according to case n°1. Were we wrong?
