In my Imperial Fist army I run Lysander with a command squad in a drop pod. The squad is equipped with 2x power fists and 4x storm shields. I like the unit because it stops hammer units dead in their tracks even if it is a little expensive (it is also a loadout consistent with my army's fluff).
Recently my opponents have switched from assaulting or concentrate anti-tank firepower on the squad to unloading with bolters and autocannons. the army can survive for a while but it just isn't equipped to dance around with other troops. I am looking for something to add to the unit to increase the firepower. Hopefully it will be big enough that my opponents have no choice but to take some big hits or try to lock the squad in melee. Some of my thoughts were:
swapping bolters for plasma guns
swaping bolters for meltaguns
adding a chapter master for orbital bombardment
adding a master of the forge with a conversion beamer
adding a librarian with vortex of doom or smite
Any thoughts? Anything you have done that worked really well.
