    General rule of Tac. Squads: Don't give them two roles.

    You gave your two Tac. Squads a heavy and assault weapon. Change one of them w/ a lascannon to a Plasma Gun and take out the Melta in the other.

    Consider adding another Scout Squad, the same one you have right now. Two is good as you can pin more enemies down.

    General Good Combinations for Troops

    Assaulty: Meltagun and Powerfist/Power Weapon. Take the PF before a PW.

    Shooty: two Plasma guns, Plas/Las, Plasma Cannon and Plasma gun. These don't need sergeants unless you play Dark Angels.

    Scouts

    Assaulty: All CCW's and BP's, maybe a Powerfist--> likely to come under massive fire with a powerfist

    Shooty: 1 missle Launcher/Heavy Bolter and the rest are sniper rifles, pinning, pinning, pinning.

    Shooty: two Plasma guns,
    This requires a trait, and is more like mobile fire support, then shooty.


    Plas/Las, Plasma Cannon and Plasma gun.
    This are good options.

    These don't need sergeants unless you play Dark Angels
    Das never need sgts in there none CC squad.

    The rule intractable means if you fail a moral test, you dont fall back, instead you hold your postion, during your movement phase, but you can still shoot heavy weapons.

    This means that nothing except for pinning will silence your heavy guns with a DAs army.

    Very few armies can pin space marines.

    Sergeant, bolter
    1 marine, lascannon
    1 marine, melta gun
    3 marines, bolters

    Trade your melta guns for plasma guns, do not pay for terminator honour on your sgt, i cant tell if you have or not, anyway, dont do it.

    Your a space marine, there are very few penatlies for falling backwards, but more importantly, you will rarely fall back, its not worth the points.

    I assume these squads are 6 man, which is the number you want them to be.

    If you want assaulty squads, make them 10 man, veteran sgt, powerfist, melta gun, drop pod/infiltrate depending on the rest of your army.

    This assaulty tactical formation, is not purly puffed out to assault, however its about as good as your troops can do without further traits.

    Scout squad
    Sergeant, sniper rifle
    1 marine, missile launcher
    5 marines, sniper rifles
    I wount use scouts if you can avoid it.

    They snipers arent very good agains most opponents, everything this squad can do, veterans can do better, except pin people.

    If you want to pin your opponent use whirlwinds.

    However, pinning isnt very good, it would be much better to make your opponent fall back.

    So id ditch these scouts, ineffective shooting, not as durable, fairly expensive.


    Have you considered having him play eldar?

    Falcons, jet bikes, and avatars are all good choices in those armies.

    Some sects of eldar, can use avatars as troops, thus you could field two of those, + 3 falcones, + jet bike squad, or maybe just HQ on jet bike.

    (i think, im not an expert on eldar)

    Anyway, all those selections are horrendously good. Although eldar are about to get a new codex so holding off buying anything untill oct would be a good idea.

    Anyway an army like that would be uber deadly, and maybe your kid would like they way they look.

    Simliarly witht tau, there tanks are great...

    Peace
