Well, I'm making Dreadclaws out of the new drop Pod (quite easy really) and wanted to know the opinions of the people here.
Would you allow people to use dreadclaws in a normal game?
Reasons would be nice
If you have the the actuel rules for it and you'd ask me before the game I wouldn't mind at all, btw can you post some pics on how you did it, I'm interested in that as well.
Probably not to be honest. Ive never been a fan of things from other army lists being included in differant armies and saying 'counts as'. Ive always seen it as a way to make up for a short coming in your own army. Maybe as a once-off but not constantly.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
Use them in apocolypse battles, they are legal then. Or use Forge world rules with players consent. Otherwise give back the loyalist toy and go make a defiler!
Arch Overfiend & Grand Despot
I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Dreadclaws are NOT loyalist! loyalists can't even use dreadclaws. they turned traitor just like the chaos legions in 30k.
plus, loyalist drop pods disimbark 2" from the drop pod. dreadclaws disimbark underneath.
i'd let you use em, as long as you paid the 50 points.
Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
Dreadclaws arent Drop Pods!!! They use entirely different rules. They can take off again and land etc.
They have entirely their own set of rules. And IA admits they are overcosted (as is all IA stuff) to make it "seem" fairer. Read the preface in the IA Apocalypse book.
Anyway, a dreadclaw is a flier that is a transport choice in a CSM army, deploys via drop pod rules, but can then fly off again, or take the squad back, or disengage and bring another reserves squad in via drop pod. Its handy. However it is more expensive than a Drop Pod.
I would obviously bring the relevant rules.
Hang on I will do some quick (very shoddy) snaps of how I am going about it
Ok then, picture one:
This is a drop pod with nothing in it, barring the doors (not glued by the way).
Doors up: (general shape)
A "wing" as I call them. Notice the small triangle near the bottom. Watch it closely.
Ta da!!! You will see why in a second.
Now, this is the drop pod with one door up (the inner part is hanging forward) and a wing with the triangle still there. As you can see, it would stick awkwardly, meaning there are gaps.
And without, the pod closes (as dreadclaws open from the bottom).
Now, held together by my hand (my wrists bend right the way round, i can prod my veins with my fingers )
That help anyone? All you need to do is add engines at the bottom, and chaos it up.
Thatrs great, I never thought of doing it that way, I ended up cutting the top of the 'wing' off, and attempting to attach it to the bottom.
After finishing what i am currently doing with my Night Lords list, I will look at dreadclaws again, and see about putting some into my army.
RepForYou. (Or I would, butI have to 'spread some around' first.)
