Ok, call me crazy, whatever, but it is possible. Through forgeworld, yes, but possible nonetheless.
His name is Elam Coubray. His command squad can upgrade to jump packs for a paltry sum of points. My point here is to start a discussion over the viability of tactics using such a squad versus the viability of taking just a 10 man assault squad.
The Command Squad can take power weapons on all but one squad member, and has an apothecary. They could, if desired, also carry assault weapons (flamer, plasma, melta) They come down to about 15 attacks standard, 20 on the charge. 16 of those would be power weapon attacks. They also have an apothecary.
The Assault squad can take one power weapon at most, and two assault weapons. On normal, they have 21 attacks, 31 on the charge. 3 of those are power weapon attacks. They have no apothecary.
The two squads are roughly the same points, the assault squad coming out a tad higher if you take a PW and assault weapons.
So which would be more effective? Is the Jump command squad a viable choice, and if is, what tactics would you use with it?
