    I my opinion the standard bearer is a waste of points, normally I only use a normal tac squad, sometimes I put in a techmarine. I then use the "detached from command" rule supplied in Chapter Approved placing the Techmarine close to my Devestators

    Gotta agree with Belial there on the standard bearer, and also with the techmarine coupled with the devastators [useful when you miss that game-winning shot ]

    i gotta agree with the other guys that the standerd bearer is a waste.

    following the main question though,
    i'd go with an apoth with a medi pack (or nathcrium, what eva)

    a tech is good if your opponent allows you to split up the command squad (ya need their permission ya see?) but in the actrual command squad i dont find him that useful.
    (then again, in a dev squad full of plasma cannons......... :twisted

    To be honest I have never gone with either. Their special abilities seem too limited. I always have my commander solo and put him with Scouts, but that is more to do with the character of my army than anything else.

    In fact, that's a point. Does your chapter have any major links with either branch. It's a long shot but it might help you make your mind up. If your homebrew you could decide on one and then add that to your fluff, make it part of what your chapter is and has been and will be.

    SB useless? have u heard about holy relic?


    anyway.. depending on ur army either choose a tech or not.. but an apothecary can almost always be useful, since it let's u make another save on someone... (just as the lib)

    Yeah, I have my command squad filled completely out with Apothecary, Techmarine, SB, Vet. Sgt and 6 marines where one is armed with a Meltagun and one with a Heavy Bolter.

    I have never fielded them all at once but they look cool on the shelf with the rest of the army and then I at least have something to choose from.

    I also have a Captain, a Librarian and a Chaplain. I mostly use my Chaplain as my commander but having all three gives a nice variation to choose between.
