Default Your Favorite Squad

Mine is a 5 man Deathwatch Team. Captain has Iron Halo, Power Weapon, and Bolter with Kraken Bolts. 2 Veterans with Power Weapons and Bolters with Kraken Bolts, and 2 Veterans with Heavy Bolters with suspensors and Helfire Rounds. Expensive in points, but fun and very effective against xenos (needless to say).

So whats one squad you love to take no matter how effective it is or how many points?
I'm back?

Thinking of something appropriate to put into ym sig as of now...

My favorite squad... probably:

Firewarrior Team (10), shas'ui, bonding knife
-Devilfish APC, DL, TA, MT, SMS

A nice solid squad that can put down a lot of fire and can be very fast. Not cheap but it gets the job done.

8 man deathwing assault terminators. hard as all get out, and when placed in a landraider crusader are the literal meaning of shiznit.

runner up would be my unit of 3 broadsides, raining fire down on the enemy from 72" away for the last five years.

A simple full Fire Warrior squad led by a Shas'Ui with Bonding Knife and mounted in their moderately upgraded Devilfish are what the Tau are all about to me...

But actually...the units I'm most fond of in 40k are Pariahs (for what they are) and Flesh Tearer Death Company...not for their battlefield effectiveness, but fluff reasons.

Overall, though, the new Ork Kommandos are mildly tempting me to make a Blood Ax army...just because nobody else does them. Probability of conversion to ninjas: very high.

DE Archon w/ Shadow Field, Agoniser and Blaster along with a squad of Incubi mounted in a Raider. Bad luck for the enemy squad.
