Default Shooting upon exiting a Drop Pod.

Hey,

Can you help solve a little dilemma for me - I do not have access to my rulebook currently.

When a unit leaves a drop pod (on the turn it arrives) does count as having moved?

I am considering a unit of Dev's in a DP with 4 heavy bolters. Would they only be able to fire Snap Shots on the turn of arrival?

many thanks

From the BRB (emphasis mine):
"After disembarking, models can manifest their psychic powers and either shoot or Run in their subsequent Shooting phase, counting as having moved that turn, but they cannot declare a charge in their subsequent Assault phase. If a unit disembarks from a destroyed vehicle during the enemy turn, it cannot charge in the Assault phase of its own turn unless the destroyed vehicle had the Assault Vehicle special rule."

If you want Devs in Pods to not shoot snap shots play the Skyhammer Formation.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Ah, this is for DA. I was wondering about creating an 'anti-infantry' zone in turn one. I like to play deployment games.

and thank you, @Tyriks . That was the answer I was after.

If you're after deep striking / mobile heavy bolters, might I suggest land speeders?

3 of them with dual heavy bolters kick out 18 shots at full BS for a smidge more than 4 HBs (for 12 snap shots) in a 5 man podded dev squad. Only downside being they're in on turn 2, but why not just start them on the board?

It's my go too build for dealing with thunderwolf spam at the moment, not to mention wulfen (AP 4 darlings!)

Dakka dakka.

Side note:- If possible, avoid squadroning them.

Not a fan of 'green marines' just like how I don't play 'red marines'. I can dig that.

Not that this is anywhere near as cost effective as @Rush's suggestion, but have you ever considered putting your Deathwing Terminators into Drop Pods for that T1 glory they used to have?
