I usually use storm troopers in squads of 5, with 2 plasma guns and sometimes with a plasma pistol on the sergeant. Personally, I feel that this is the cheapest and safest way to field plasma in the IG codex.Then, I deep strike them next to something I want to die, and fire away! That's a high volume of plasma shots, and a fair number of hellgun shots, so usually they accomplish what they set out to do. Sometimes (but rarely) they even survive long enough to shoot again!

Alternatively I do sometimes use meltaguns as well, but I am a much bigger fan of using heavy weapons against tanks, so I usually stick with the plasma.

Either way though, I find they work best in small groups with a specific target in mind.
