Lessee Leessee. Special weapons squad are two fragile for me, here is a suggestion, hardened vets for you can still get the three weapons, and you have a better BS.

I do not like the lascannon in the normal squads so heres what I would do. Those three missle launchers in the antitank squad go to the norm squads, and the lascannons go into an antitank squad.
Krak Grenades are almost useless unless you realy think they will be assaulting a tank from behind.

I like it, but the definite choice, as Tatum said, are Vets. Also, those Veteran Sergeants are eating up the points. The 2 attacks won't be doing much, so leave them out of normal infantry and spend points on a vet squad instead. Looks good!

Unless you plan on having your infantry squads move around then yes get rid of the VS and just stick close to the Officers.

who are you going to drop pod in? or is that just a fluff doctrine? just don't deep strike stormtroopers or vets.

firstly, i take infiltrate and DS so that, depending on the mission, board, and enemy i can DS or infiltrate depending on how I see fit. amd the drop troops are fror the meltagun team. DS in, melt the rear armour of their best tank/walker/big beasty thing from withing 6" and boom. they're kamikaze choice, 90 pts for a squad that can destroy any vehicle in one turn. they havn't failed yet

i will cry the day you spell my name right :P

anyway, yeah the vets are for LD. I plan on having officers on the font line with the men, but if the officers die, what am I to do?

I plan on having the lascannon squads and one or 2 others siting still, while minimum of 2 squads and cmmnd/platoon command squads run up and take objectives etc
