New Wolves Battleforce
With the new release this past week of the Space wolves Battleforce I've been thinking about drop pods quite a bit, because they included a drop pod instead of a rhino this time. I currently don't own a drop pod mainly because I just don't like them. Maybe if you could assault out of a drop pod then i would use one, but that would be too way over powered. I just like the mobility of a rhino way too much to give them up for something that holds the same troops and then scatters and is immobile once its finished its task. Now i could be wrong because i do see tons of drop pod lists out there even my buddy has picked up 3 pods to use for his imperial fist army so maybe i am just out of touch on this subject. The only unit i could see myself putting in a drop pod would be a dreadnought having them drop in on the enemy brings back death from above moments from battletech lol. Having a Dread suddenly appear and opening up on the enemy is a great advantage especially those ones armed with a multi melta where you need to get up and close to destroy the enemies armor, as they usually become targets as soon as they walk on the table. So one day maybe ill pick up a drop pod just for that purpose alone but til then ill keep my packs running around in rhinos.
