I've just started a space marine army and I've assembled and painted a cool terminator chaplain. My question is what should I use him with? A normal termie squad, a termie command squad, an assault termie squad or just a normal units of tactical marines? If it is any help, my army will be assault orientated.
Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

Ideally, you'd want to put him with a Squad of Assault Terminators and load them into a Land Raider Crusader. However, this setup is pricey in points. You could foot slog the Terminators, but that leaves them very vulnerable to fire.
Here would be the best probable support for the Chaplain
Assault Terminator Squad (7)
4x Lightning Claws
3x Thunder Hammer / Storm Shield
These can be very powerful in assault, but are very slow, and won't usually make it to close combat easily.
You could consider regular Command squad, and take advantage of the Dual Assault cannons. This way, you get the firepower, and still can re-roll attacks on the charge. More of an all rounder squad, but isn't terribly great at Close Combat, the Chaplains forte.
In short, ideally, you'd want the assault squad, but the shooty squad makes for versatility that can be extra useful in a pinch.
What amount of points do you usually play with? If it's less than 1000 on a regular basis, then I would advise not having an Assualt Terminator Squad. They are slow without Transport, and you'll be down to nothin by the time you make it into Assualt. Adrian is right..the firepower will make the squad many times more versatile.
If you feel that I have been helpful, please click the star, and do the same for anyone else who gives you a hand.

2000+ Of Tyranids
Yeah i agree with the last two posts. In games 1000pts or under go with a normal termi squad or command squad or not all. Anything over 1000pts and you could probably take assault terminators.
I'd probably go with 7 assault terminators like Adrian suggested.
3 thunder hammers/ storm shields
4 lighting claws
Give the squad furious assault perhaps and chuck them with the chaplain with a land raider crusader transport. It's expensive but it's well worth the points.
