Drop Pods: How many do you take and why?
Old School here with a post from the road. Tonight I want to talk about drop pods and the quantity folks take them in. I am a big fan of single pods in armies, dropping disruption, distraction or destruction, such as the Logan bomb, sternguard, ect. Cvinton, on the other extreme likes to mount his whole army in pods.
While he doesn't have to cross the board in rhinos, surely to be left walking at some point, he also ends up without the protection provided by the famous space Marine rhino. I think this just represents two styles of play and to different themes players will use when fielding their army. it really got me thinking and since I am on the road, I wanted to keep this post short and give you readers the chance to discuss the topic. How many drop pods is ideal? How many do you run and what goes in them? Are you doing the enemy's job of de meching you or are you delivering swift power armored death? Let's hear your thoughts ... oh and Cvinton, feel free to snowmobiled your ideas in there!
