Imperial_Guard_Vol_1_1GiantKiller here with another episode of Building the Case. This week’s edition is a response to a build request for a Pure IG build at the 1000 points level with “some kind of blob and air support”.

With the release of the Imperial Guard FAQ on September 3, 2009, this is no longer an issue:

“Q. How do you treat the Valkyrie base for gaming? Due to its height it seems that it is impossible for a Valkyrie to contest an objective, or for troops to disembark/embark normally.

OUR HOLDING (Upheld as of 9.3.09 by the IG FAQ):

Models can embark and disembark from the Valkyrie, measuring the 2″ distance from the Valkyrie’s base.
