Missile Launcher (I don't really want this, but you can still vote)
Heavy Bolter (leaning towards this, more shots, pierces eavy armour)
Multi-Melta (possibly, but this is mainly anti-tank so don't really bother)
Plasma Cannon (good strength, goes through mega armour and blasts)
Lascannon (high strength, low AP, but just one shot)
Okay, here it is. I have four tactical squads, each of ten models, but only two have heavy weapons (the others haven't been assembled yet). One squad has a multi-melta, one has a heavy bolter, but I don't know what to put on my other two units, so I would like some help.
PS: I can put any weapons I like on basically, I've got some devastator spares.
Space Marines: 4,000pts - 7/7/2
Imperial Guard: Under Construction...
I chose missile launcher simply because it can be both anti infantry and anti tank. Also i killed a chaos lord with one once while he still had all his wounds!
Strength 8 is great against most characters because it can instant kill any with toughness 4 and under (which would be most).
"Although why not magnesite them? "
I agree it would mean you could change depending on who you were facing.
Plasma Cannons. Gets Hot! is always a bit lary but you really can't beat a BS4 plasma blast for taking out infantry of any kind. Missile Launchers are only really good against horde infantry and a Plasma Cannon will tackle light vehicles (especially big wide ones like Wave Serpents) with roughly the same degree of success as a krak missile.
I went for Plasma Cannon, they have a high enough Strength to be able to wound almost anything on a 2+ and their Strength is also high enough to deal with light vehicles. Sure, they scatter, but with Marines' BS4, they're scattering 3" on average, which shouldn't be too much of a problem. Against Orks, they're better than any missile launcher.
I voted for plasma cannon cuz It will probably hit at least 3 orks like the heavy bolter but will kill more. GETS HOT isn't such a big deal with 3+ armor but you should still pick your shot carefully
Also just wondering what HQ are you gonna use for this game?
