    Terminator Chaplain or Assualt Chaplain?

    What kind of chaplain (if any) do you use in your army? Assualt Chaplains with a maxed out assualt squad is deadly:ninja:, however I am seeing more and more lists with terminator chaplains in them... Im highly doubting its because of the new terminator model:shifty:.A terminator chaplain with an termie assualt squad is just as deadly... just considerably slower. Which do you prefer and why?

    I'm using two assault chaplains, each attached to an assault squad.

    I don't like the idea of using terminators, they don't fit the theme of my army as they move way to slow. Assault termies would be even worse.

    Don't think I don't like terminators, because they are pretty awesome at what they do. They just don't fit with my plans.

    I'm just playtesting my first SM army list in almost 18 years and went with the Assault Chaplain and full assault squad. He was eventually gunned down, but the swath of destruction they cut into the enemy (armour and all, thanks to powerfisted SGT) was AWE-INSPIRING! I will definately be using him again.

    assault chaplian is MUCH better, i mean if you REALLY want that +2 save just give him aritfacir armor, the only real advanrage of termie armor is deepstriking and if you deepstrike your chaplain your a moron.

    I'd go with the assault Chaplain.

    The Chaplains main assault rule only works on the charge and it is much easier to get the charge when you are speeding around with a Jump Pack.

    I use a Terminator Chaplain with a Terminator Command Squad, or with an Assault Terminator Squad. Termie armour is cool and the squad is unusual, absloutly everyone takes an Assault Squad led by Chaplain.

    What was the middle one?

    I'm not voting because I have one of each.

    I use the following setup:

    Reclusiarch with FotD and FotA in terminator armor with a 2 assault cannot terminator command squad.

    Following close to charge in combat and defend the fist unit a jumpack Chaplain led assault squad.

    Works like this:
    Shoot with Lib squad, clean up with chaplain led assault squad.

    Results:
    Gotta see it to beleive, but you can imagine the devastation they cause!
