Hi All, a quick rule check before launching my drop pod assault.
Drop pods can be taken as a fast attack choice, Terminator squad of ten can be separated into combat squads. is there anything stopping me from deploying one of the terminator combat squads in the drop pod ?

Not that I can think of right now - but I do wonder why you would?

thank you,
my reason, first turn deployment, more reliable than teleportation deep strike, until the locator beacons on the drop pods can be used and due to to bulky rule only 5 terminators can deploy inside a drop pod.

Can terminators take a drop pod as a transport?

No, they can only take Land Raiders as a dedicated transport.

But, you can now purchase a pod as a Fast Attack choice, and deploy terminators (or whatever else) inside.

I know that you may embark bulky models (such as a terminator wearing captain) into a pod.

The prohibition, as far as I know, extends to jump/jetpack infantry, unless otherwise stated. For instance, a assault squad with packs (even at 5 man), cannot embark into a rhino or a pod, due to being jump. However, they may embark on a stormraven, because the raven specifically allows it.

Drop pods can be purchased as a fast attack choice and can carry up to ten models, I just need a fast and reliable deployment for terminators even if it's a combat squad. 2X heavy flamers and storm bolters next to a pansy elder psychic menace.

If that's your plan, Sternguard might be better.

You can still get the two flamers, special ammo, fit 10 into the pod, still combat squadding, and they're cheaper than termies (per model).

Tactical Terminators are pretty terrible, there's nothing they do that another unit doesn't do better, for cheaper.
