Hey just wondering in general what people use pods for. I can see two uses for my space wolf list:

1. Agressive tank popping. Basically 2 MG's or Dread with MM, very suicidal, best used on a flank (even though worthy targets aren't thrown out there unsupported). Frequently targeted and destroyed in turn 2.

2. Positional: GH's with PG's or possibly even Long Fangs, basically get a scoring unit onto a mid board objective or to threaten lines of advance.

Anyone have an opinion? I like the idea of Drop Poding Long fangs as it's unexpected but I'm doubtfull of their effectiveness.

Instant cover where you need it. Drop, deploy forces on the OTHER side of the Drop Pod, then secure area.

Tank-popping as you said.

Also, if you take a locator beacon, the drop pod can direct deep-striking troops aswell.

Few ideas anyway.

Wolves don't have the option for locator beacons. :confused:
Personally I like DP's for dropping in my Rune Priest(s) jaws a couple of important models then die.
