Hi, I am new to the game and am looking for some advice. I was wondering what the best way to outfit my command squad to go with my Captain w/ Relic Blade & SS. I am looking for a good assault unit to support the Captain. I am also looking to keep the unit cost under control so I can field enough other stuff, so maybe 100 or so points of gear. This would be for a 1750-2000 point casual game, not a tournament setting. Thanks.
Honestly unless you're planning on putting them all on bikes I'd give him a unit of Sternguard to roam around with. You can't assault from a (non Landraider)transport, footslogging is useless and they can't take jump packs if you captain does.
This is what I use for my Captain's escort:
On Bike: Command Squad on Bikes (or standard bike squad if low point game)
Jump Pack: Vanguard (standard Assault Marine squad if low point)
In Razorback/Drop Pod: Sternguard (Tactical Combat Squad w/ Melta + Powerfist if low point)
Land Raider: Command Squad w/ power weapons and storm shields (or Terminator Assault Squad if low points)
Initially, think power weapons to benefit from the extra CC bonus.
If you have extra points or for modeling appearance, TH/SS looks awesome and gives you a good invulnerable save.
Mount them on a Razorback or on a Drop Pod, depending on your play style.
