Foot Marines: How To Bring The Pain
This one could also be titled: What To Give My Tactical Marines? Or maybe: Why are all the best Space Marine pictures of the Black Templar?
Since this is going to be a veritable power armor horde, I will likely be doing ten man squads. I think I would be best off doing anti tank for special and heavy, that way I can combat squad them into groups of five tacticals for anti infantry, and than group the special weapons guys with the sergeant, sort of like mini devastator teams. In this way, I would be able to focus my anti-tank special weapons on appropriate targets without wasting too many bolter shots.
So then, it comes down to which actual loadout works best for this type of mission? Should it be melta and multimelta for the absolute pinnacle of melta goodness? Plasma and missile for better range? I will admit to not being very experienced in this arena, as I have usually used dedicated anti tank platforms for killing tanks in the past (as Tau, your anti tank cannot be confused for anything else, a la hammerheads and broadsides).
In any event, what do people think here?
