I'm stuck building a 500pts army list, i can't decide between a drop pod for my 10 man tactical squad or a 5 man assault squad. Please advise.

Personally I would advise on the tactical squad. A fire base is a sound starting point of an army. Secondly, it might not be wise to send those assault Marines in without support. Thirdly, the CC capabilities of a tactical squad are superior to many standard troop choices, so they are a solid, if not specialized, CC addition.

is this combat patrol or basic army lists? personally i'd give a rhino instead of the drop pod as then you can block LOS from turn one and with overcharged engines still be fairly fast going up the table....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

id probably go for the assualt squad for some reason i think drop pods are cool but if they drop out of 12" on their deepstrike they can get blasted a bit ,if u do bring the assualt squad would you deepstrike them?
