Default Assault Terminators or Techmarines?

Well, I would love some Assault Terminators coming in via Deepstrike using a homor, but i also have vehicles (6 + Dread), and was wondering what is better, and what would you pick?? I already have 3 Elites (Vets, Techs, Dread), but i might grab some assault termis soon.. Help :D

It mostly depends on what you already have. Post what models you currently have and then it will be easier to tell what would be more useful to you.

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.

your whole army would tell what your army can do and what it could use for some uplifts.
I know that this might be a bit long, but in general if we know what you have we can tell what you could use better.

rly it just depends on whether or not your vehicles get disabled a lot; techmarines are kinda nice, but honestly i think the assault termies are a better investment (IMHO)
happy hunting

For the points, terms will perform better than techs any day.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
