Default Favourite Unit?

What is your favourite unit IN terms of looks, abilities ar just the way they kill things

I chose the command squad because they can have the special upgrades as well as the fact that all of them can have terminator honours.


(Don't double post, read the rules next time and when you are making a poll make sure you put options in the poll that have something to do with the question. And please spell correctly - Stam)

Assault squad for me. Command squads are cool and their ability to upgrade to Termie honours only adds to their already lethal close combat potential (if a little pricey), but I love how fast assault squads can move and I think jump packs look fantastic. I'm currently working on my new assault squad too, the 'Vampires', so I'm probably a little biased.

WTF!?! Please stay off the drugs?

Back to the subject, i chose Veteran Squads. More to do with fluff than gaming, i always loved seeing grizzled SM veterans with over sized power-axes and lightning claws. :P

I say scouts, as they are one of the more versatile units. add to that they can infiltrate and their other rules, and their base cost is 2 pts less than a basic marine (sure your armor save goes down, but so what)

I have seen amazing things done with scouts. I have seen a unit with shotguns kill a greater demon (bloodthirster), a unit with sniper rifles kill a carnifex in one round of shooting, and most impressive of all a unit with sniper rifles kill 2 units of grey hunters and one unit of blood claws in close combat when they were charged by the wolves player and then on top of that it wasn't even a full unit of scouts, but it was full units of each of the wolves.

Tactical Squad Marines, the meat and potatoes of your army.

I love these units. They can be outfitted to deal with (almost) any situation presented to them. You can use them for fire support, counter assault, charging, whatever.

Plus they look rather neat with Chainswords and Bolt Pistols.

Tac squads. They can quite literally do anything you want them to do.
