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.

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

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.

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.

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.

a unit of assault terminators with lightning claws a lead by a chaplain could rip apart a carnifex and they will have so many attacks they are bound to do somthing to the rhino

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