Well, if you read the rules you will see the drop pods come down in the
flyer phase, But, I would think that they would be harder to hit then a -1
for snap fire. In the SM editdion they were free now its not worth taking
them, at 300 pts or 350 pts for Space Wolves, witch I play. I use the drop
pods, for it is in the SW's nature to get to grips as fast as possible, and
they talk bout Ragnar the wolves leader jumping out of his drop pod in the
codex book. So I play them, but, they have been getting shot to bits latly.
For all first fire blast them to bits, or not all open. So I feel a -2 to
hit when droping, for they will be falling out of the sky pretty fast, AND
put them back as a FREE CARD. If you can give the Eldar the all mighty
Avatar for free ( CHEESY ) then give the SM's there drop pods for free.
