Welcome to Librarium Online!
I know that this has been brought up many a time ago, but which unit do you perfere to infiltrate?
Stromtroops, or Veterns?
Fear me, for I have a Flashlight.
Veterans are my preference, with a heavy weapon and more special weapons options they make a more powerful fire base...
Three meltagun veterans deepstriking? Sign me up.
Veterans. All the time. Becasue 3x Plasma and Lascannon/Missile Launcher just rocks hard. ^_^
Storm Troopers, Though not the most effective choice they are very survivable and look so much better than vets.
Qui est Mortis? Lol, the rep... neggatized for something... lol that nobody payed attention too... Lol Goodbye all, BTW This is permanent goodbye so save some bandwidth mods delete this account :D :evil: :D :evil: :D
I sometimes use a 10 man stormtrooper squad with two plasmaguns and infiltrate to capture objectives... more often than not though, I field these guys as my 3rd or 4th troop using Grenadiers and giving them a Chimera.
For objective capturing I prefer stormtroopers because of their better survivability. Point for point though, veterans are better at dishing out damage. However, it is my opinion that Kasrkin models are to cool not to use and anyone not doing so is eh... missing out on something... or something. Possibly. :>
For pure pts VS value, Veterans with a Lascannon and three Plasmas is our best unit that IG can take Period. I also like the excellent looking ( As Kasier the wise has said ) and worthwhile Stormies with two Plasmas.

i guess if you're looking for something that doesn't die to small arms fire out in the open, storm troopers.
myself, i prefer hardened veterans; the extra weapons options are enough to convince me; besides, IG infantry time should be spent ducking for cover and not reliant on armor anyways, despite the cool-ness factor of the visual on the armor.
if it wasn't for the weird cylindrical hellguns, i'd almost like the old stormtrooper models more (i don't know why), it's a very close call. but then i look at my rag-taggedy hard-looking vets and think to myself... no contest.
