How to disembark troops from Valkyrie according to rules - where to place models and how to measure deployment distance?
Wish GW would print a FAQ and give us an answer. If you go straight RAW, it's pretty much illegal to use the doors at all.
I made a little cardstock template that goes around the base with the silhouette of the doors. Has worked fine for everyone I've played with so far.
What about troops inside Valkyrie do they score points?
I'd just play it as with other transports. Up to 2" from the side doors and rear ramp.
You have to do what makes sense, and the literal interpretation of RAW does not. If anyone tried to pull the "sorry, your transport entry says you don't have access points. You can't disembark" shennanigans on me, they would get a swift kick in the shin and away I would walk.
you can have a similar RAW problem with termies out the front door of a landraider. that is until 5th ed clarified that only part of the base needs to be 2 in from the ramp.
Its not exactly hard to get models within 2" of the access points.
Without standing under a wing or the tail? Quite hard to get an entire 12 models out and in coherency and actually do anything with them
