Default Dark Angels Drop Pod

I was discussing the DA drop pod the other day with some friends and we were trying to decide if you could assault out of it. None of us could agree and I couldnt find anything here, so what do you guys think?

A drop pod counts as moving after landing, you can't assault out of a vehicle unless it is open topped or a land raider, Question Answered!

... but it is open topped. Does the drop pod count as moving over 12in?

You can do this 2 ways: RAW or spirit.

RAW: You can assault out of an open-topped vehicle. Too bad they don't have Deep Strike.

spirit: They are just like everyone else's drop pods.

Not this again... There's an FAQ over at the B&C handed down from some developer guy that prevents it. And the first one who starts going on about it not being official until it's a PDF will have my arms come out of their screen and throttle them

I thought so. Where is this FAQ and what is the B&C?

Lemme see if I can find a link.

http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/i...owtopic=108170

Scroll down to the post labelled "DARK ANGELS 4TH EDITION CODEX STUDIO FAQ". There's a question about whether a unit with a drop pod can set up in reserve. In the answer it states that the unit counts as deep striking as well in the turn they arrive (not just the pod), and that they can shoot, but not assault.

However as you said Fish Ead it's not official until it's in a PDF on GW's site. Until then the FAQ on the B&C is completely useless when you are trying to prove to some rules lawyering Dark Angel player that he cannot assault out of his Drop Pods.

So for all intents and purposes, until GW releases an official FAQ you technically can. It won't earn you many friends but...

I was never planing on doing it (for fear of having models shoved in places they shouldnt), but it was interesting that in the SM codex they specifically stated no assaulting, but in the DA codex that was left out and they seemed to push the open-topped classification.
