yeah, just a little confusing...
i would make the AT support squad either all autocannon, or all missile launcher. lascannons are terrible in the hands of the guard.

your platoons should show what each squad has, ahd the way your storm troopers are set up, i would give them some special weapons.

Autocannons on Sentinels aren't my thing, I prefer Lascannons.

You don't really have enough heavy weapons at all. I tried using squads with just Grenade Launchers and got a good whipping...

seems like a waste

Heavy weapons squad of 3 Missile launcher and 1 lascannon

the max for a HW squad is 3

3x 10 Stormtroopers with Hellgun, krack and frag grenades

again , a waste. that great BS with no special weapons to use it with...

1x Basilisk w/earthshaker cannon, heavy bolter, and indirect fire

you will regret this later...

I'm not offended, just didn't get anything from your advice.* Stormtroopers can't take anything useful to their BS like a lascannon.* I can get flamers, grenade launchers, meltas and plasmas.* Nothing to stand off and shoot with really.

My HQ is minimal so that I can spend more on independant commisars and armor.*

I also don't think I'll regret the basilisk, since it is the one weapon that give me *tau player* the most trouble.

So you can see, you've offered nothing useful since you don't explain yourself.

grenade launchers should not be underestimated. they are effective and a strength 6 krak grenade has taken out many an unlikely foe. in the future, i will try to add more commentary.

Weapon mixing in Heavy Weapon squads isn't a good idea, it lowers the effeciency of the unit. In my humble opinion, of course, but it's a widely accepted belief.

Oh, and no model can have more then two weapons. So it's either Storm Bolter or Laspistol, not both...unless you want to get rid of the close combat weapon. Better to take a Power Sword in any case.
