Welcome to Librarium Online!
I play BTs so I have no use for them.

im starting an iron hands army(the new modles made me drool all over my WD) and plan on taking a 10 man squad of vets. i wouldnt, but seeing as normal marines dont have the option of taking a BP and CCW(which makes me mad, if chaos and even imperial guard, doctrine, can do it then why the hell not SM), then i have no choice but to buy vets.

Then you're not going to enjoy your first meeting with a BA Honour Guard as they can indeed take power weapons.Originally posted by ~GK_Flarer~@Feb 8 2004, 02:21
1 + 1(2CCWs) + 1 (Charged) + 1(Terminator Honours) = 4
4 attacks each on the charge......
if they could take power weapons they would be CRAZY!
Back to topic, i didn't realise that a command squad troopers only had bolters so i suppose Vets are the best hand to hand choice for codex marines.
Vets are better, my problem is they draw fire in spades against any opponent that knows what he is doing, all to often my vets have been forced out of a smoking rhino under a hail of star cannon fire and then are charged by a banshee sqaud (trust me this hurts.
Everything you have been told is a lie!
vets are a good bosst to ur line

vets are worth it
i hate vets, i think there the bigest waste of points. they are made for hand to hand and they suck in that. no power weapon no specail plus str. things. but then again i play dark angels. a shooting army.
I'll get a pack of Blood Claws for my Veterans. Much less points than terminators, the only difference would be the attacks and the armour save. Since most armies use power weapons and such it's a bit pointless to have such a good save on such an expensive unit. Veterans are the new Termies! :w
I'm having the same delema, whether to go with a command squad or a veteran squad. You can give both termie honors and well, isn't that the point of taking these units? However, think about it, a vet is an extra 13 pts compared to an assult SM without a jump pack. All this for only an extra attack. I'ld rather have a 10 man assult squad with 2 atacks than a 6 man command squad with 2 attacks and a flamer. However, a 6 man vet squad with 3 attacks and a flamer is quite good.
...and you will know my name is the lord, when I strike down my vengence upon thee...
veterans in basic squads help resolve tight combats. i always take them with melta bombs and a power weapon and i am usually proved right. as for veteran squad and assault marines with out jump packs the great benifit of veteran squads is they can take a rhino. they are not running cross the table for 3 turns getting shot.
