so, the new dex has come out what are peoples preffered builds for assault squads? what do you think will be the most useful, personally i will be very annoyed if my 2 plasma pistol, power fist and melta bombs build from the old pamphlet is now obsolete - all of my squads are painted with them now.
You can still do that build. Although only the sergeant can take Melta Bombs.
Personally mine are armed with 2 Melta guns and a Sergeant with a Powerfist. They get a nice little Rhino to travel around in too. If i had the points in my Army list i'd probably give the Sergeant a hand flamer as well but i just can't seem to squeaze it in.
I am really tempted by a Jump pack squad with 2 Melta guns and the serge with a pair of Lightning Claws.
It'll be as effective as it always was i assume. More so now you've got things like Sang Priests lurking about giving people FC and FNP.
I find Melta guns or Flamers are alot better than Plasma pistols though. Plasma pistols are just a 'notsogoodmeltagun" who might kill you. If i were you i'd do some snapping and give them Inferno pistols. Only a 6 inch range but, thats charge range and it wont explode in your face and kill you. Same price too. (3 Guardsmen)
