i say use veterans, they have a variable squad size and can get pretty cool weapons, as for the storm troopers they are just over priced guardsmen with extra armour which is still penetrated by all sorts of bolters and things so i think the armour is not worth it
i dont agree, bolters are the most comon weapon and it has AP 5, so the storm troopers can still make their armor save, and the have hellguns, witch means that they can shoot orks (and other guardsman) very easily.
THey are a very effective assualt unit (quite cheap compared to marines and eldar) With a potential of S6 aith T4 and 2 wounds each. They form vital counter assualt units for many imperial guard armies especially when in a chimera.
Between Storm and Veterans I say veterans as u can have more special and heavy weapons and Storm troopers while are survivable, arent really anymore powerful than a normal guardsman.
