Have a question about my company command squad. I currently a pretty inexperienced guard player. I'm more of a marine guy. Anyway I run a LRBT with heavy bolters and heavy stubber (which btw might hav as many kills as the heavy bolters), two platoons with plamsa guns (one also has autocannons), one veterans squad with (depending on the enemy) 2 flamers and heavy flamer or 3 meltas or demolitions doctorine, and 2 vendettas (one with hellfury missiles).
the question is:
with this style army should I outfit my company command squad with:
command squad- 180pts
Master of the Ordanance
I'm torn between the two because I really want the orders from the stationary command squad to my HWS but I really like I have watched the mobile command squad chew through tyranid warrior squad with meltas and power fist
I'm not opposed to a Powerfist on a CCS, if and only if it's using up the last of your points with nothing else to spend it on (and only after buying a bodyguard). It's a nice little suprise to tuck away into the squad. He's essentially got 5-6 (after bodyguard) ablative wounds before you even need to worry about ID, and a 5+ invul.

You sound like a Straken kind of guy. He can throw orders around, make his men hit back hard AND comes with a high-initiative powerfist! Just organize those two platoons into infantry blobs, keep them near Straken and enjoy your rolling freight train of death.I'm torn between the two because I really want the orders from the stationary command squad to my HWS but I really like I have watched the mobile command squad chew through tyranid warrior squad with meltas and power fist
I wouldn't sweat using orders on HW squads. It's hard to do reliably and, if they're an actual threat to the enemy, they'll die first anyway.
