Dreadnought drop pods.
What do you do?
It seems there are three choices, none of them ideal.
Awesome model, but.. over fifty quid a pop. for what is essentially terrain. hm.
Lots of folk use a normal DP and don't put the harnesses in. but similarly, some folk have issues with that, cos “it’s not the right one”.
Okay, so the effort would be an issue here, but also, it’s highly unlikely that you;d be able to make opening doors, and no matter your skills, it’s still going to feel, if not look like a blue peter job.
I honestly think this is the only model in the whole of the GW codex/range that has this issue. and it’s simply because there is a model that’s almost right.
Tyranid? no issue, there isn't a model, do your best.
I suppose the best analogue is the Hydra, there isn't a GW model, but there is a FW one, so some use FW and some build their own conversions of chimera. either is valid, no-one complains.
But somehow the dread drop pod causes more issues than that.
So, Where do you stand, scratch, FW or GW without it’s guts?
