Terminator Squads (love the new Cyclones)
Terminator Assault Squads (The Storm Shields OWN!)
Sternguard Veterans (Special Ammunition ftw)
Dreadnought (Simply the Emperor's Finest)
Ironclad Dreadnought (I defy you to kill me)
Venerable Dreadnought (Armoured Death Machine)
none, I prefer more marine bodies
So what's everyone's favoured Elite choice in the new codex. With the addition of Sternguard, Ironclads, and Venerables, I've seen a lot of people retire some of the former models. Which is your favorite Elite choice, and why do you think it is the best weapon suited for your army.

i got all of the elite choices but my fav. is sternguard veterans. they are more of a multi-role unit then most other units and ming have a classic razorback with twin lascannons.
I am an Indestructible master of War.
I'm loving 5 Assault Termies and a Termi Chaplain in a Redeemer right now, so I'll go with them.
im gonna go with my Dark Angels Sniper Scouts ( they laugh in the face of Toughness 10 monstrous creatures). but since there is no option for them i'd say a venerable dreadnought.
Add me! Let me know your forum name too! =)
My Standard Dreads have done me proud so far. However I am going to begin to field a Sterguard Squad, depending on the results I see they may become my new favorites.
Converted my Death Company to work as Vanguards with a bunch of power weapons. They tend to have the highest kill count in my games.
Personally I like the tyranic war veterans, they may be single purposed but what can I say they're good at what they do!
Other than that I'd have to say the venerable dreadnought, it's a heavy hitter.
This far the only Elite choices I've employed in game are Terminators and Dreadnoughts, so I can't really speak from experience, but this far both of them have generally failed me miserably (good thing I'm more of a Heavy Support nut) with minimal successes to their names.
But I do prefer the Dreads simply because they soak up more fire than the Terminators (Which they shouldn't, but the Terminators had a bad run in with a Tau plasma-Crisis troop... It was not pretty).
My Dread it just takes a beating and come back for more. It can take a hail of rounds without a scratch while sadly my Terms die due to terrible rolls.
8 Assault Termies charging out of a LRC is the most awesome thing around.
