What I've seen is POV's from Gunline and shooty armies.
But what about Assault Oriented armies?
I have a Space Marine Assault Army - very little Man Portable Heavy Weaponry. Well, none at all really. I am limited to Plasmaguns, Meltaguns and Flamers, only weaponry mounted on the Dreadnoughts and Land Raider provide any Heavy Power Weaponry, and due to the 3 Dreadnoughts and single Raider, it means that these are armed with Lascannons, and a MultiMelta.
I therefore have little in the way of Ranged to take out Heavy Infantry, relying on Rapid Firing Plasma Guns to take them out (Haha, good joke, move on).
Orks are mainly the worst you can fight, because there is so many of the buggers, and you can't hope, without having insane luck, to kill them all before their other non-jump infantry hit home. In all decency, you are looking to having (Vanguard excluded) your squad tied up for 2 turns, which gives ample time for their charge to hit.
Chaos are similarly nasty - their jump infantry are harder than Orks, and generally better than Marines, unless the Marines tool up, which the Chaos tend to do as well. However, they last longer, but they are far more expensive, and their basic troops are equally good at shooting, so fingers crossed, they've plumped for some Shooty troops (with Thousand Sons, and Emperors Children, why not?). Again, you're fighting MEQ's, so Rapid Firing Plasma Guns are your best friend. Remember to focus your limited firepower on them. MEQ's, from 17 Bolter shots (8 Bolters, Bolt Pistol, and Plasma Gun) at 12" range are looking at taking maybe 3/4 wounds, so says number crunching averages, anyway.
MEQ jump infantry are going to be around 10 strong - You are not going to be able to wipe them all out with the listed 2 units shooting at them.
Winged daemon Princes. I hate these. Whipping people all over, or slaughtering in H2H. Normally, people say shoot them. Ever faced a daemon army with 3 of them, with a grand total of 4 Twin Linked Lascannons? Didn't think so. If they have two, I'd recommend splitting your fire, unless they just fly away, and whipping your troops away from them. Get each down to 2 wounds, before choosing your Assaults. When you've decided which ones you're going to assault first (if the Chaos Player had sense, he'd split them, so that its got the widest radius for their effects), and do that with as much as you can. Assaulting gets your Marine's away from Thousand Sons and nasty shooters in the Chaos Army. When you've decided on your attack, shooting your Lascannons at the remaining one will see it killed. If not, you've got a charging Daemon Prince up your arse.
Vespids. These buggers are rather nasty. Shooting them is the way to go forward. Wipe them out. Seriously. Unless you have some Railgun armed vehicles or Battlesuit units (Packing MEQ slaying guns) which can be insta-killed by Lascannons, then target these at them. Luckily, I've fought them only once - While still practising, I opted to go first. Plasma Cannon landed right on, killed 3/5. The other two jumped in, and opened fire on the vanguard. In return, the plasma gun killed the others. Blast Weaponry, with high strength should be targetting these (unless of course, you can insta-kill some suits).
Eldar. Little Buggers. Luckily, they're quite easy to bring down with Boltguns. However, them damn autarchs with Wings have a nasty habit of Popping up as a nice surprise. Heavy Bolters, Plasma Guns, Bolters, Rocks. Throw what you can at them. They eat Marines for breakfast in combat. Unless you've got a Chaos Lord/Chapter Master with Backpack, (why?), or Daemon Prince, I've not found much that equals their effectiveness for jump infantry.
Death Company. Cheap Assault Marines, lead by a Combat Monster Chaplain. Excellent. just another thing your army has to fight against in Close Combat, against a Close Combat Specialist army. Power Weapon/Fist armed units (Nobz, Chosen, Vanguard), lead by something which is hefty in CQC (Warboss, Lord, Chaplain/Librarian/Captain), without being too detrimental to your armies effectiveness (Oh - 2 HQ choices are important IMHO against Blood Angels to counter these units, so you've got one left when you see your countering HQ bite the dust against 30+ Assault models).
Necrons - don't have one, but spare a thought for Wraiths. Invulnerable, rapid moving power weapon (?) armed monsters, with a penchant for stalling your assault units, and against which your Power Weapons have no more effect than a combat knife. Grey Knights shooty weaponry is pretty handy.
As a side note, imperials can find Grey Knights to be the ultimate as a counter unit. WS5, Str 6 I5 units, lead by Power Weapon armed Justicars, also hitting at Str 6, with True Grit Storm Bolters. A squad of 5 can munch their way through even MEQ full squads. Consider Incinerators for the teleport attack, and Psycannons for Purgation squads. Normal Knights - the only upgrade should be the Justicar has Psycannon Bolts. Terminators. These are teleporters. Consider a Grand Master with Incinerator, and an Elite Choice Grey Knight Terminator Unit, Brother Captain with Incinerator, and as many incinerators as the troops can carry. Try putting them in a Crusader, and your opponents facedrops when he sees 3 Str 6 Flamer Templates hit his Jump Infantry.
Flamers are handy as a Stop Gap if you don't have much to counter an assault. Guardsmen Special Weapon teams, armed with Flamers can clear out a fair amount of close combat nastiness, while Devestators, Havocs and the like each have 4 flamers. Terminators have Assault 4 rending weapons, or Heavy Flamers, followed by an assault move, equipped with Power fists. Daemon Princes - try watching an assault unit get near your Thousand Sons, or tasty havocs, while you're whipping them away.
Just a few ideas to mull over. Sorry that it's based from MEQ view.
