Team Tournament Forgeworld unit

I'm thinking about taking a Lucius pattern droppod for my Blood Angels, however army builder still has the old 50 pt transport one. The new rules for it in IA apocalypse second edittion doesen't list Blood Angels as one of the armies that may take it. So I was wondering if I used the old entry.

I think you have to use the new entry. Otherwise someone could use the old entry for marine terminators and take 2 cyclone missile launchers in a 5-man squad.

ok, the book has not been out very long so the Army Builder file is not current yet.

For Forgeworld units we always use the most current version of the rules unless the unit is listed in a GW codex then the codex rules take priority.

The most recent IA book restricts the chapters that can field a Lucius pattern droppod, increases the points, and requires for 40K games that it take up a FA slot. Short answer no Lucius Pattern droppod for armies fielded from the Blood Angels codex.

Also keep in mind that this IA book, as with Grey Knights and the new Necron codex have the advantage of design with 6th edition in mind. So it's hard to fully evaluate changes.
