Those damn drop pods! Advice please
I seem to be posting quite a bit alately so before anyone gets sick of the sight of me i thought id get one more in...
Drop pods... or dealing with opponents drop pods rather... how do you all go about setting up to minimise their oncoming wrath?
One of my regular opponents (my bro to be exact) runs salamanders and users 3 drop pods in his list (so two auto coming in on turn 1), usually hitting me with a stern guard unit and iron clad dreadnought. I run an aegis line so obvs get cover from that, plus i try to use that in tandem with the terrain around me to minimise the available space for the DP to land, but then just try to weather the storm that comes, generally the stern guard kill something, then die, the ICDN is a little harder to shift...
Not wanting to just focus on my battles tho, id hoped to get a few thoughts on how you take on the task of tackling them.
If this subject has already arisen please forgive me, i had searched for the topic, albeit blurry eyed with a slight hangover this morning...
