plz can i ask ....are assault squads worth getting?
yes yes yes yes yes yes
i mean: yes!
assault squads are some of the best units marines have. give them a veteran sergeant with a powerfist and the squad 2 plasma pistols and accompanie them with a chaplain and you will have a unit that can handle about everything in the game.
assault squads are quite fast and use their ability to jump over terrain pieces to the enemy.
they will attact a lot of fire and watch out for landing in woods etc. they could meet their dom there...
jope it helps
"Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and terrifying to know"
they are great for getting ride off any shooting squads as well
yea the assault marines make up my raven guard army and they r definitely worht it
I would say assault squads are definately worth taking, either as an assault backbone or as a counterfoil for assaulting if you have a shooty SM army.
This subject has been covered before, use the search option and have a look at some of these other post for further info
Hope this helps
after playing DAs for a few years I never found it to "fluffy" to use them. But getting bored with the playing style of the static army I desided to pick up a box of them(5). Well after playing the 5 man squad one night. The next day I ran out and bought aother box. WoW they rock as a 10 man squad. Then a few weeks later I picked up 12 more used. One squad led by chapi, other led by a lib with FoD. Those 2 units pretty much clean house.
Dont know how I ever lived without them :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:
jokeing around with my brother I told him I needed ti paint my army red :ninja:
I dont know why you have this in here but whatever. Assualt squads like it has been stated before are one of the best units a sm army can get. They have the ability to kill off most units in the game and if you do give them a vt. serg. w/ a powerfist then they could tank hunt if their task is done.Originally Posted by ^jynx^
I mean for 25 dollars for 5 its a steal becasue you can equip them with packs or no pack(dont see the reason for no packs) But they are a great unit.
Um... How can I put this?
*Bolt pistols do the same damage as boltGUNs, at lower range, yes, but still the same ROF.
*An extra attack in CQC is always welcome.
*Nobody likes their weak point suddenly deep-struck by 10 Space Marines thirsting for choppy choppy.
*2 Plasma Pistols; CQC Plasma rifles, same S & AP. Or, alternatively, two Flamers. Great bug control.
*12" movement compared to 6" basic infantry movement.
*only another 7pts when to choose a jump pack from the armoury is 20.
Now, if you need persuasion after all these replies, you need to change your brain. lol
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!

the only problem with an assault marine squad is that they can sometimes be hard to hide behind a piece of terrain if you have a large squad size. other than that they are awesome at hitting a weak point in the enemy lines.
