Default Who Can Deepstrike?

I've been having some questions about who can deepstrike and who can't.* I play eldar and my friend, Aleric, plays space wolves and almost always deepstrikes his runepriest, is this legal?* Also I heard someone say that dreadnaughts can deepstrike, and I though that it sounded ridiculous.

With Space Wolves, if he's only Deep Striking the Runepreist, he's breaking rules - the SW can only take "All or None" in drop pods, and despite having Terminator Armour the Rune Priest cannot Deepstrike - part of the SW special rules.

Normal SM Dreads can DS in Drop Pods, though.

Dang, Aleric's dreadnaught is gonna give me fits if he deepstrikes it, any advice on handling that. I play Saim Hann so my guys would be long gone if I got first turn, and then he has the rears of my vehicles to shoot at.

Now that Alaric is going to expand to a 1750 pt army he needs to add another HQ in so I think that he will use his Dreadnought as A venerable Dread will he still be able to deep strike?

Yes, yes he will be able to Deepstrike his Ven Dread, but for Eldar it shouldn't be that much of a problem. Have a few Brightlance or Scatter Laser (I think that's the right one) armed Vipers at the back of your army so that you can hit the rear armour of his Dread if he Deepstrikes to hit the back armour of a Falcon.

I like it, next time a wage war with Aleric I will definately try that out.
