Blood Angels should only ever put Powerfists on Sergeants if they are Vanguard or regular Jumpers. And I don't think that arm fits with a Jump Pack.

Well, he never stated what sort of list he runs.

And the arm will fit if its filed down.
Or else cut off a standard arm at the bottom of the shoulder pad, and glue the PF arm onto that.
Anything is possible with a knife and greenstuff.

I mean what type of BA list.

You obviously wouldn't run PF's in a Razorback-spam list, but in a jumper list you would definitely consider adding a couple.

Are we talking at cross purposes?

I said they were fine on Jumpers, but not otherwise. :/

Now you're saying the same, but you don't 'sound' like you're agreeing.

I rarely take Assault Terminators to be fair, but I might as well add an opinion..

I like the idea of taking both of each type of Terminator in one squad... I only tend to take 1 Thunder Hammer in my army though, mainly because of being so similar to a Power Fist, also they don't gain the +1 Attack from having a SS. However, the 3+ Inv benefits them incredibly, going up against tank killers ie. Meltas, Las etc, they are really great at shaking that off. Usually, I take this squad launching from a Raider (Crusader or Redeemer), the hail of bolterfire usually helps them along, alongside the assault cannon.

Personally, I would go with the combination squad, to get used to how they work, then maybe pick up another squad and add the remaining models (ie. You make 2 TH + SS and 3 LC's then pick up another set and make 3 TH + SS and 2 LC's), that way, you can make a complete squad if you want.

If you are allowed to change your army after seeing what the opponent is using, then what is the point of even trying to create a balanced list?

You just perpetrate the Rock-Paper-Scissors dogma that haunts the game.

As far as cheating goes, how is it NOT cheating to go "Oh, you have a lot of Terminators but no tanks, so I'm swapping all my Meltaguns for Plasma." ?!?

You are stealing an advantage at the expense of the opponent. Defines cheating, for me.
