Veteran assault squads are great. They cost only 10 more points then regular assault squads, and you can add extra marines to them one at a time. Most importantly, you can give the VAS 3 power weapons! I have played games just to see what happens where I used 3 VAS each with 3 power weapons and my poor opponent never knew what hit him. The problem with that force was that I was too off balaned... I had no range. Once I got into assault rolling 12 power weapon shots and 8 normal shots would make my opponents eyes bulge out! But I found it difficult to get there.
SOo, here is the real topic. I now use only one VAS. I have it equipped with 5 marines and 3 powers. What you guys think? Do any of you out go with that configuration?
