They do okay for an inital attack then get bogged down depending on the rolls, I feel they lack a solid punch. The Thunder hammer is a good hitter but goes last (eh)

These guys are nasty in the assault and hold their own, problem is counter power weapons, just pick and choose the fight, and get a transport.

command squad
LD 3+, SV 3+, 10 attack, 5 wounds, FnP

FNP makes these guys nasty! plus they have a special character to bolster them (typically) They can have a RB for fire support.

This is what I see with the points being about the same cost. Thoughts?
I think your best point cost is the Command squad becasue of the load outs it can have, Plus the special character can greatly improve them as well, and I think Ld is a 9.

Also consider Vanguard Vets, equiped with jet packs they have heroic intervention and land where they are needed and assualt when they need to.

Basic Assault Squad with your load out = 225 pts.
Vanguard vet with jump pack and three power weapons = 205 pts x4 pw=220

Well thats my thoughts hope it helps.
