    Tac Squad, Need Help Choosing

    OK so I got a new Tac squad, but I have no idea how to equip them. I read the tactica, but I really can't decide. I play against Tau and Tyranids, and I play Ultramarines.

    On another note, is it OK to give my sergeant 2 boltpistols (to look cool), but count it as a CCW and BP?

    Hmm, against Tau and Tyranids, I would suggest either the 5 man squad with a lascannon to take out Tanks and TMCs or the 10 man drop-podding squad with meltagun and powerfisted sergeant.

    Yes, just tell your opponent beforehand.

    Actually, it doesn't matter whether or not you tell your opponent, it's completely legal with 2 pistols. They both count as being ccws for the extra attack, and you can only fire at a time anyway, so it works exactly the same.

    We're starting off with smaller battles, so I doubt I'll need a lascannon as there won't really be any vehicles, only maybe against heroes. Any other alternatives?

    the standard missile launcher is a nice option; hard against vehicles and ought monsters, and the template (although less in power) agains lots of small ones...

    I have 1 squad that is 9 bolters and 1 Missile Launcher as well. Would that be effective?
