Does anyone know of a valid reason why you can not take CC Terminators as a comand squad? because i have some, and a termi Librarian and i well, want to save on the drop pod/ reduce the risk of somthing going wrong in the drop.
Because you can't.
You can only take standard terminators as a command squad.
Just doesn't make any sense. Regular Terminators are good enough in close combat, however.

well if you were allowed, then it would be too easy to make the termy chappie combo. if you want a chaplain and termies, then you have to go for a crusader, and more termies. if you were allowed assault termy com squads then things would get a bit unbalanced. thats the only reason i can see anyway.
I would say balance, except that Dark Angels can have assault termies as their command squad (effectively) and so clearly balance isn't the primery concern, or at least GW has decided it wouldn't be completely game breaking.
As for why regular marines can't, I'm gonna go with "Because GW said don't". The only reason for that type of smart alack response is because, at it's core, that's the only real reason that exists, as is the case for every rule in the game.

more witty remarks to come.
on a side note, why are terminators so good in CC, if i read correctly the powerfist ALWAYS goes last in CC, so they have great armor but the IG hit first?!
Its their armour. Its very tought to get past in a standard combat, that's why you need to pile on terminators, otherwise, their armour and invulnerable save will simply make them stay alive. No two ways about it.
Although if we where to read the drop pod tactica, we'd learn that standard terminator work more effectively in drop pods, then assault terminators, especially when combined with librarians. /shameless self promotion
Personally powerfists are the worst things to take on terminators personally the lightning claw is better in my view as the terminator has a high enough strength anyway
