    Deep Striking

    I currently use my single drop pod in games mainly against orks and guard, and being a drop pod deep striking, it wont be destroyed by enemys or terrain as it moves the minimum distance to get away from it. So i ask this.
    Can you effectivly say you want to drop it straight in the middle of an enemy squad (as the rulebook just says anywhere on the board for deep striking) and then when you scatter, move the minimum distance to not hit the squad so you would be pratically 0"-1" away from the squad?

    You have to place the model on the board before you roll scatter. So unless you can put the model somewhere you won't be able to do that.

    The rulebook also says that models cannot occupy the same space as other models, whether friend or foe, so you cannot place your initial landing point deliberately on top of an enemy unit.

    If the DP *scatters* there, then that is different.

    Good pickup E.

    The rules for ‘Inertial Guidance Systems’ on Drop Pods only modifies the scattering part of deep-striking, nothing else.

    Cheers.

    Yet, the model isn't in play until it actually arrives? And Deep Strike has no such restrictions as to model placement... why would it be illegal to start on top of the opponent's models?

    Because you actually place the model before you scatter it. As you already cannot place a model on another, there is no need to tell you not to do it.

    Why not just remove all the models underneath the drop pod as casualties? I mean, if we're making up rules anyway it's more effective and makes more sense to squish them.
