Default Assaulting

What are the different troop choices for assaulting and what are the best, if any? Thanks for the help.

I think the best are:
1) an entire army with warrior weapons (hard to get)
2) rough riders (my fave)
3) Ogryns
4) Super maxed out command squads

Mostly this is it but there are a few other options. Mainly just try to mob em with as many people with 2 cc weapons as possible

You forgot one...conscripts. They hit in CC better then they shoot and a squad of 20-30 charging causes a lot of damage even against T4 models

There are already several topics on assaulting with guard. If you use your search function you should be able to find them.

If you have trouble finding them i'll direct you to them (Please dont just come to me straight away).

If you still have further questions ask me to unlock this thread so you may post them.
