    Best Value

    My problem is simple: I have $ to spend and need to choose between a new tactical squad, whirlwind, or land speeder. My army is currently:
    1 tactical squad
    1 scout squad
    1 chaplain
    1 bike squad w/attack bike
    1 terminator squad
    1 assault squad
    1 dreadnought
    1 captain

    If anyone has a suggestion, I'd be glad to hear it.

    I again would go for the Tactical Squad, You look to be playing a decent amount of points so two would be good.

    Definitely Tactical Squad. While Terminators and Sternguards are invaluable, with only 1 Tactical Squad and 1 Scout Squad to support them you'll be stretching yourself thin and run the risk of losing your objective units.

    Troops are good, so another tac squad would help you out. High on your priority list should be a Whirlwind though. (If you leave the top loose, you can use it both as a Whirlwind or a Rhino)

    Troops are essential, but you can always combat squad the tacticals and scouts for four scoring units. I am voting for the whirlwind, long range death to hoards.
    Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.

    Just a quick question:
    can my tacticals only split into combat squads i they're at full strength?

    As I understand it, yes as the minimum squad strength is 5.

    Correct, they can only combat squad if they number 10 marines. As an aside, they can only get the 'free' special and heavy weapon at 10 marines also.

    since you only have two troop choices I'd get the tac squad...more troops before you get the toys
