Im going to take the chaplin, just to toss him in with my assault squad.

But it comes down to the librarian and the champion.

The librarian has some neat long range attacks, but the chapion is realy badass.

A 10 man squad of Assault Marines with a PF weilding Sergeant and a Termi Honours Chaplain does..

Get it done the proper way with a Bolter and a Chainsword.. No need for FOTD

Of course 1 option is cheaper than the other.

I think the above squad is around 350. Your Librarian is around 150 (Sorry I can't find my codex lol). For the 200 extra points you get an extra 10 wounds, 20 attacks, 30 if charging. Of which 2-3 are Strength 8 Power Fist added to the 4-5 Power Weapon attacks of the Chaplain. Seems to be a lot better to me. Of course, its apples and pears, I'm not a fan of Librarians.

Or is that too cliche?

well, either way espion, i'd prefer in general to not have HQs taking up 1/5 of a 1500 pt list....the one exception being (sometimes) an ulthwe seer council.

Im think have the plan down, a Emperor's Champion and a Chaplin joined up with an assault squad.

Either way, the Chaplin is staying, he has a realy cool abillities.
