    depends on your style of play and the points you have spare etc. i don't even take any fast attack personally. and i play dark angels so scouts are still at marine level WS and BS. so maybe for you i'd say assault marines. but why not just spend the points on bulking up your bikes to a full 10 man unit. i'd say go one way or the other - a nice bike squadron, or a nice assault squad, but not average of both.
    take assault squad for deep striking if you use drop pods too so you have a nice deep striking army that way.

    Quite true, but my feel for the SM scouts is give them a fist and outflank with them - they can asault the turn they come on, unlike the assault marines, cost alot less and score (so turning up from reserve really late can be an advantage too)

    I can't stand DA scouts. They're wrong. (I only added 5 to my full company with Deathwing and Ravenwing support - and other support - so I can say it's a full company in apocalypse games, and i wanted the Heavy bolter and webbing for IG conversions.)
