Scanning the new codex there are no drop pods, unless I missed them. Do chaos not have that option?
No, they do not. However, you may be able to talk some of your friends into using the old Dreadclaw assault craft rules that were printed in an Imperial Armor book. Unfortunately, I'm not sure which one, though I'm certain that one of the other helpful members will be able to back me up.
Imperial Armour Update 2006 :d
Id let you play with the Dredclaw, the reason CSM dont have access to drop pods is because at the time of the traitor legions betrayal the Drop pods as we now know them were not in full use, some legions did have a fair amount of them, but the majority were used in the assults of terra and istivann, i dont realy think they could recover many from tearra as they withdrew (if it even crossed their minds) but im supprised its not in the new dex as the newer renegade chapters could easily have their complement of pods, i guess it was just to keep things even!
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.

Dreadclaws where in full use during the great crusade, during the heresy many loyalist ships equipped with dredclaws suffered high amounts on accidents with them, their very crafty things.
Main reason why chaos don't get them is that GW don't want their gloryboys to loose all their cool toys.
People think normal Marines with Drop Pods are cheese? Try a test game and shove a bunch of Plague Marines into Drop Pods. See what happens.
I believe it is possible it will be rules for drop pods in Imperial Armor - Volume Six: The Siege of Vraks - Part two (long name, huh...)
Any way it will be focusing on chaos and they even have a picture of drop pods in the back of Siege of Vraks - part one. I though a read on warseer that it will be released early next year, so have faith Liffrea...
