Honda Posted February 12, 2014 Share Posted February 12, 2014 Some short answers: 1. Yes, take Typhoons. I'd take two. 2. What to put in the other pods. When it comes to drop pods, I come from the "full Monty" school of thought. Why bring a sledgehammer and then just tap his toes. I would put things in there that are going to support your Iron clad and Sternguard (if you take them). Also keep in mind, that a crusader squad who shows up close and personal, is going to be able to double tap and flamers are nice and cheap. Against IG in cover...well, he's not going to like that much. 3. You are correct in that you should take some melta. He's guard, he'll bring tanks. It's what they do. 4. Are you going to bring a Storm Raven/Talon? What would you do if he shows up with Valkyries/Vendettas? If you're not sure, take a 5 man dev squad and give it the flakk missile upgrade and then I think you can do double duty with the frag missiles. Someone should probably weigh in on that as I don't have my codex handy. 5. Yes on deep striking termies, especially with locator beacon pods. Two pods upgraded should be enough. 6. What will you do if he takes Coteaz as an ally and does the "no-no, don't dare drop here" bubble of doom? 7. This may make you laugh, but you might just think about Whirlwinds. They can ignore cover...and they are cheap. Most importantly, keep in mind that a drop pod has tremendous opportunities associated with it, but also significant risks. It's not for the faint of heart. That being said, I love playing DP lists. They are huge fun. Gorkimedes 1 Back to top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
