Just a short question.
What do you folks use to represent a drop pod on the games table? a drinks can? another model thats large? as does it not also need to represent blocking line of sight etc... as well. thanks for all feedback.
all references i found on droppods work from a 5 inch diameter footprint. For representing the location of a droppod an old cd is pretty much the right size for them. as for representing them, i plan on taking the droppods from miniature scenery for them eventually.

If you go to your local home improvement store, you can buy 1" diameter PVC pipe and a cap that screws into it for less than $1.50. You can paint this and even make it look really good. Wham, instant drop pod.
Burger King King sized drink cup works well for me. I've been told that the "official" size of a drop pod is the same as a large blast template and the King Sized Cup is just a smidgen smaller.

My pod is scratchbuilt based roughly on the cardboard templates that popped up on the French (I think?) GW site a while back. It's built so that a Dreadnought sized imaginary cube can conceivably fit inside it. Makes it equally useful for troops or a Dread.
When it's all said and done, it does wind up being about the size of an ordinance template.
