So I'm considering assault marines... while it doesn't seem fluffy at first, touting them as sort of a "Destroyer Company" (as they'll have rad 'nades) and oufitting them with combat shields and a few power weapons + Apothecary could make them pretty nasty.
What do we think to 15 man squads? Are combat shields worth it? 45pts seems hefty for the entire squad but a 6/5++ on top of FNP will make them pretty hardy.
A fully kitted squad is however 340pts.....
They're about 50% more expensive than Tacticals (without a Rhino) but offer a bit more speed and flexibility in an infantry list - not to mention rule-of-cool based on this amazing image:
