What type of them do ya use? i never use asualt termis simply because they have no range. normal termis are still solid close-combatears, but are armed with a storm bolter which in my opini0on are one of the best guns in the space marines arsonal.
There is a massive poll thread going on atm, so I suggest using that as your guide, I think atm normal termis are winning. I play with normal termies with a cyclone missile launcher and a chain fist if you really wanted to know though, lol.
Move forward and stay quiet brothers.
Check out my half finished blog here.
Without going into too much details, the main reason people didn't play assault terminators in 4th edition was due to the 2 assault cannons and rending rules. The massive shooting power of this combination was way more effective than assaulting and if the unit was charged, they were terminators and would eventually win the combat.
Now a days, with rending nerfed and the number of assault cannons reduced, assault terminators are way better and, when armer with combat shields, capable of destroying anything in CC.
Too bad they can't sweep advance
Despite the new awesome that's Storm Shields, I still prefer ranged termies, simply because they can do something in the turn they teleport in (which is what I usually do with them), usually busting up an enemy tank or decimating a squad of troops.

Assalt Termies are [Deleted for stats posting]
Shure half of these things are true for assalt termies but as long as you give the majority lightining claws and stick them in a LRC they'll never let you down. I would also only use this in a 1500pt battle or more as they are expensive.
If you do want to take normal termies then if you're playing DOW then deploy them normaly as they are almost garentied to be within 18" of an enemy unit and aim for the tanks with them. Don't give them furious charge either as they dont need it as they already have strength 8 and they have inititive 1 always.

Do not posts stats please.
Treat everyone as if they know the rules and codexes better than you.
No one wants to know how far a bolter can shoot. It's not new information to anyone. Don't insult your fellow members.
That aside, just don't post stats please. It's naughty.
