Over on the Warhammer Community website we have seen a preview of some Drop Pods for Legion Imperialis.
The Legiones Astartes utilise a number of methods of deployment into hostile war zones – but none are more iconic than the Drop Pod assault. Each pod is a self-contained orbital descent capsule, launched from a spacecraft and searing through a planet’s atmosphere before retro jets fire to slow its descent just enough not to be obliterated upon impact with the surface. Upon landing, a deadly cargo of Space Marines charges directly into the heart of battle.
Though not entirely clear from the article, I think these are in fact plastic models.
There is also the intriguing final comment…
They’ll be available – much like Legions Imperialis itself – sooner than you think!
