I am in the process of building a Blood Angels force.
And I have afew questions about the Vet Assault squad.

Does anyone field more than 1 unit of them?
Are they any good with a tramsport instead of Jump Packs?
What are the best weapon load-outs for them?

Thanks in advance.

I prefer to use jump packs for mine. With close combat weapons and bolt and plasma pistols. Though I may build a new squad when the new codex arrives, I have not played them much since the half ass effort of a codex that GW put out.

However I do have two squads of them and three assult troops for troops.

I'd have said (although this pure theory) that jump packs + Melta Guns is going to go a long way to killing a few tanks, they also don't seem to pay any extra points for their Death Company marine either.

It really depends on what you want them to do. I'm waiting on a new codex before I put mine together. They might introduce something totally different in the next one since ours was a 4th edition codex before they had much idea of what they were going for.

Well you can't assault out of a rhino for one thing. If it aint broke...

As for using two units... in a planetstrike game it actually makes sense, but otherwise you are really taking points away from your scoring units.

Jump Packs all the way hey.

A friend uses 6-8 armed with 2 power fists and 2 meltaguns.

The meltaguns are very good when combined with jump packs.
