Ok here's one for ya, for the special weapons, what would you all recommend? I currently have a squad of 10 ISTs theat have 2 melta-guns and I was wondering for the 2nd set of 10, should I go with plasma this time or stay with melta? I'm getting some special made female IG that I'm going to convet to ISTs and was thinking of going plasma this time for a little variety, also was thinking the one I make into the Vet, giving her a plasma pistol. Thanks in advance.

I run two 8 man squads of IST. If I think I will need to go tank hunting or dreadnought hunting one squad will have melta. The other squad will have plasma. Now if I am fighting a defense fight both squads will have plasma.
Plasma has range and can double tap at 12 inches. Melta has the range of a pistol. So you have to be close to use it. I suggest taking one squad of each to see how they work.
In my next game I will be fielding plasma in both squads.
Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.
You can't go wrong with either weapon loadout. Whatever suits your fancy, your tactics, your list, your opponent(s), and suchlike.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

If you are mounted then the difference is the the double tap. if your walking go plasma.
Could just be my style like number6 was talking about, but I only use two plasma's in both squads.. not only can they take out vehicles but also terminators and the likes...
The biggest surprise comes when you say... no sorry but your terminator only gets an 5+ Save and then they cry as they loose 150pts...
Much must be risked in war.
