lucius pattern drop pod

Postby beeny13 » Thu Nov 12, 2009 8:01 am

does the lucius pattern drop pod need to be the size of the forgeworld model or can I just use a regular plastic drop pod?

According to the Adepticon model policy you have to use the actual FW model so a regular drop pod or conversion of it would not work.

http://www.adepticon.org/09rules/modelpolicy.html

"Because of the uniqueness of Forge World models and rules, Forge World
units (i.e. units found ONLY in Forge World rules supplements) must be
represented by the appropriate Forge World model."

That is the 2009 Model Policy. It has been updated for 2010.

http://www.adepticon.org/10rules/2010modelpolicy.pdf

The most important part relating to this question:
The size and shape of all model bases MUST be appropriate for the given game system. Models, such as vehicles, that do not require bases MUST maintain the intended size, shape and height of the model represented.

This means that you are free to scratch-build or convert a Lucius Pattern Dreadnought Drop Pod, but it the model must maintain the size, shape and height of a standard Forge World Dreadnought Drop Pod, as pictured here:

I emailed Chris M about this and he told me that the FW Dreadnought drop pod would be required to run this unit. Has that stance changed then?

The AdeptiCon model policy has been updated and is more flexible. Let me stress however. They better look the part and pass the smell test. In otherwords.. if your going to scratch build something, it better be at least as good or better than the available model. When in doubt I'd be sending photographs.

So quick question here.... can I use the plastic drop pod and 'mod' it to fit a dreadnought? It is a bit smaller in all dimensions than the FW Dreadnought DP, and about $70 cheaper.

Thanks

The Lucius Pattern Drop Pod offers a significant advantage and MUST be modeled accordingly.

If you can modify a plastic drop and in the end have is match the size/height of the FW model - then yes, but you cannot field the normal drop pod as a Lucius Pattern Drop Pod.

This is the official ruling on this question:

That is the 2009 Model Policy. It has been updated for 2010.

The answer I provided was based on the 2009 policy. Since then the policy has been updated. Please refer to the 2010 model policy.

I posted a question about lucius drop pods on the rules forum. I was wondering how the drop pod assault works with space marine armies that do not have drop pod assault. probably should have posted here, but I did not want to double post.

it is posted here
