I took the Las/Plas as my main oppenents are MEQs. I like the combination of high Str low Ap shots. However an assault cannon is also versatile, and the # of shots is a bit better. Interesting.
Ill toss in another marine, and also some MB.
I agree with it being tough for BA at 500. Im actually going for a mix of mech and JP for diversity. At higher points I will probably pick one or the other. As for the psychic powers, I was thinking about smite as it compliments the bolt pistols, but the blood lance would better support the melta. What to choose?
Thanks for the help so far guys.
