Horus Heresy Review: Anvillus Pattern Dreadclaw Drop Pod

The Dreadclaw provides the rest of the legions access to a flying drop pod that was previously (in Betrayal) only available to the Sons of Horus in the form of the Dreadclaw Drop Pod itself. The key difference is a lack of frag launchers here.

For a nice baseline cost of 100 points, the Anvillus pattern gives the legions a pod that has not only the usual drop pod assault, but a decent heat blast for a S6 no cover saves hit in a modest radius (or in a line if its moving).

Their capacity is typical for drop pods, but they can also hold contemptor dreadnoughts if the orbital assault rite of war has been selected. Regular dreadnoughts are no problem though.

I'm not sure what else to write about this unit to be honest. There are no upgrades available and its a pretty standard drop pod transport in 30k that I'm sure will see some play by certain legions and certain styles of play. Other than that, it will be shunned by legions that prefer full-on tanks, or slogging it across the battlefield. Enough said really.
