Going to enter a tournament in January, having never played Kill Team before. The biggest issue I'm having is figuring out what heavy weapon team my tactical squad should have...I'm leaning towards Heavy Bolter for the 3 shots. Let me know what you think :)

6 Tactical Marines, Bolters
1 Heavy Bolter

5 Scout Snipers, Camo Cloaks

Hmm, I'm not sure about this list.

Who are are specialists and what traits are they going for?
If you have a heavy weapons guy I would almost always suggest he be your Indomitable specialist (going for relentless so you can at least move up the board).

I used to have snipers in my kill team, and even tried out a full sniper scout list for fun. BS3 hurts, especially when you have so few models. And then you are always relying on a 50:50 chance to wound even against grots! I was rundown by an gretchin horde with my all sniper scout list as I couldn't wound the buggers! By all means take them if you want, but I certainly wouldn't recommend them

agree on the snipers. I've found out that assault marines work great in KT due to the manouvrability, tactical flexibility (they can get on building unlike bikers!), HoWrath, plus dual flamers in unit of 5!! So, i'd start with them, then add another 5 tactical with heavy bolter and maybe a combiplasma sarge. you should have some spare points to work with

Much appreciated! I do have assault marines that I never run...this would be a great reason to paint them up :)

Raven guard assault marines come into their own here.
Being able to use their jump packs in movement and assault while getting re-rolls to their hammer of wrath is fantastic!

The two flamers in a small unit is incredibly useful when facing a horde kill team. Can even get three plasma pistols in there if your really need armour penetration. But as 2+ save models are not allowed suppose that is less of an issue

Tactical Marines 1 SGT, 3 Bolters, 1 Heavy Bolter
Assault Marines 1 SGT w/ Plasma Pistol, 2 Flamers, 2 Marines
I have 10 points left...

Do I go with Vet SGT in the Assault squad or combi-pistol for the Tactical SGT?

Thanks!
