Default When are Games Workshop going to give us drop pods?

I've heard rumours that they're due this summer but I've seen no pictures, nor have I heard anything since. I'm sure it's common knowledge now so people have stopped talking about it, but I'm out of the loop...can someone fill me in?

I haven't heard anything about the Drop Pods being released anytime soon, but I can bet you they're not going to be cheap...probably $30 each.

But why Give GW more of your money than need be?

You mean steal them? Yes...oh right, sorry you meant buy these third party things? *Ahem* I knew that.

Thanks a lot pal, these look ideal...I'm gonna buy me a few I think. Nice one. I like some of the other stuff they do too...much appreciated.

EDIT - Well, I just placed an order for three of them...works out at about £30 total after P&P. Not bad considering they're coming from the other side of the world. I hope they're of a reasonable quality.

There was a drop pod tactica in a recent White Dwarf, and it said that drop pods were not going to come out any time in the near future.

Which honestly doesn't surprise me...how long did it take for the Wave Serpent to come out? And that's a main transport option for an army.

The linked droppods will more than serve...only bad thing about them is that you probably can't use them in a GW tournament...but if you put enough Imperial Eagles and bitz on it, I doubt anyone will complain. Just tell them they're "Discount Forgeworld".

I personally love when theres rules for things but no models. It forces people to make cool, original creations to represent them.
