Plasma guns works well on Raptors since they are relentless, so they can charge after firing them. Personally I hesitate a bit at the possibility of killing my own troops with a bad roll though.

I would go for:
Champ, (LC and meltabombs (just in case)) and 2 x plasma guns. Perhaps IoK, one extra attack is always going to be there for you, higher I is situational (but beeing EC-fan myself i would probably go for IoS in the end). The Plasmas are really good coupled with the raptors mobility - 4xstr7 shots in the rear isnt something to sneeze at.

Im contemplating of making myself some more raptors for large squad assault-duty later on.
