Assault Termies are never worth it. Why?
If they deep strike, they can't assault that turn.
If they don't deep strike, they need a land raider to get in combat. That's over 500 pts for 1 killable squad.
If they dont take a LR, they are gonna foot slog and probably not see combat.

so tech marine. Give him a full servo harness and a jump pack or bike. then UNLEASH THE BEAST.

assault terminators are well worth it, you just need to learn to use them properly, or offer a jucier target. because once they hit a squad, especially troops, that squad is dead.

From what I could see the termies would be a better deal for you, but basic ones will probably have a better kill/death ratio than assault termies would have. because your cc part of your army is a little lacking, and techmarines don't seem as if it would be worth the points for the number of vehicles in your army. If you seriously want assaulters though switch out your landspeeders for another unit of assault marines, but that might be pushing it.

If a child asks how Santa lives forever, simply reply he drinks blood.

Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poke me in the ribs and cackle, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started to do the same thing to them at funerals.

Techpriest, full servo harness, jump pack and attach it to a squad of jump troops. You can also give him other wargear to make him a pimp in hand to hand. Also if you need to fix a vehicle you can be there quicker because of the jump pack.

Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes

Umm... Rhinos are front armour 11 so unless they attack the sides or have furious charge they can't touch it.
