I think that command squad is incredible cost effective and is reason why to choose captain over chapter master. The only problem for me is how to tool them? They are damn cheap in comparation with devastator squad?
4 plasma/melta guns?
Thank you for opinion.
I don't usually take then, due to my love of shoving my captain with a huge ass assault squad of some kind. But if I was to take one, I'd take at least one meltagun, the rest probably kit out for CC (at least a powerfist, maybe a power weapon or two), no standard unless it's a big game.. likewise with the champion (which I doubt I'll ever take, that's my captain's job dammit xD) but definitely take an apothecary and shove the lot of them into a Razorback to scream and joyride across the battlefield brandishing their huge.. weapons.
Oh, and one veteran will be unupgraded so I can kill him off first. -_-

Train of thought will be terminating at.. edible murder weapons!
Lots of cheap special weapons seems like a good call. I'd include one w/ TH+SS for surviving and give everyone else flamers/meltas/plasmas. Lotsa dakka, FNP, and the scary TH for only 165-195 points.

Whooo, Command Squads never used 1 before...
the composition ive got here is only becos i had a C.Squad available and wanted to have them made in the off chance i had points spare >_> again, ive not used a C.Squad before so i dont know how this would turn out lol but:
Company Champion - Power Weap, Storm Shield and Bolt Pistol
Special Weaps Dude - Meltagun
Apothecary - Bolt Pistol (im assuming his Reducotr counts or can count as a CCW?)
Standard Bearer - Power Weapon, Bolt Pistol, Company Banner >_>
Vet Sergeant - Powerfist, Plasma Pistol
wether thats a good combo or not im not sure, i wasnt thinking about points cost at the time of assembly so tht prob costs a bit :/
but once again, thats jst my own Fluffy C.Squad for my Lunar Hawks

I have no rules here now. Is it necesary attach captain to squad? I think no.
In my opinion this is not "no armor saves" close assualt squad. There are better
units in SM list for that.
My command squads are tooled for assault as the rest of my army is better at shooting than assault. I go for 1 bp/ccw guy, 2 guys w/lightning claw, flamer, 1 guy with powerfist, apothecary.
It's been pretty effective so far, haven't actually made the squad yet, just proxied.
