Or to be able to hide them.

Say you have 2 portals in your 2000 point list. At the start of the game you write down a secret note for each portal, detailing which model with armoury access (Independant character or squad leader) has each portal. You then reveal the relevant ones when placing it. This means that you can swap it up between games, and your opponent wont know what to shoot at. Lastly, in fluff - you dont see all imperial guard tanks and infantry saying "That one lord has a portal in his pocket, shoot everything" because you just cant "see" the portal until it is deployed.

I like this, I know its a stratagem in Apocalypse where we get 3 of them, place them on the board and use scatter dice to see where they end up.

Also, the apocalypse portals did not let you assault from them so I hope that is not a hint for the future.

One other ability of the stratagem is that you can use the portal even after you emerge from it - it lets you escape into it and you get to reappear at the other portal.

Question is...will they continue to let us assault from it?

In my ideal fantasy world, Phil Kelly is writing it, and he will realize the idiocy of taking an unarmored assault unit and giving them the ability to deploy but not assault... Like putting assault marines in a drop pod. It's just stupid, don't try it kids, it'll ruin your life.
