Default What do you prefer Veteran squads or storm troopers?

My personal favourite has to be veterans because they'r 0-1 my squad is heavily converted. I love veterans because of the background for them and that they can choose lasgun, shotgun or las pistol and CCW, they can infiltrate and up to 3 can have special weapons.

So what's your favourite?

While the vets are "better" game wise, Stormies will always have a place in my heart.

I've only ever used storm troopers because of their deep strike ability, and they have never let me down. The AP 5 really comes into its own when taking down flak armour and they are near invulnerable to small arms fire thanks too carapace. I gear mine up with plasma guns and a pistol for the seargant and use them as an assasin squad to bring down MEQ's and monstrouse creatures. Either that or they take objectives. Plus, for what you get its quite a cheap unit. Never let me down yet.

I may not have much experience, but I have always loved the concept of storm troopers. All Hail.

I prefer Storm Troopers, because I am playing cities of death now, they have all the goodies like frag and krak and targeters, I take two full squads to suplement my firing lines

I'll always love my Catachan Vet squads!

Heh... Just about all we have are veterans...


Though my WitchHunters army will have a couple squads of Stormies...

I like Veterans as you can truly make them out of your normal models, just heavily modified to stand out a lot. Storm Troopers in a Witch Hunter army, though, performed well enough for my liking. I'll always love both of them, really.

In most cases, I'll take the increased heavy weapons and free Infiltrate cheapness of Veterans.
