Part 1 here
Just a quick addendum really, based on comments on the original article and some things I was thinking about while writing this.
The prevalence of cover
So, S7 AP2 is brilliant but it's so easy in the current edition to get that 4+ cover save for your infantry that, it's actually not that good. Especially when you compare it to Melta. Most of the time you're firing Melta at vehicles where, smoke launchers apart, it's a lot harder to get cover (although as Andy says, what is the difference between 49% and 50%?)
Boys before toys
In general, Power Weapons are 15 points in the pace Wolf Codex. Grey Hunters are exactly the same price. Personally, I'd rather have the extra GH - it's one more guy your opponent has to kill to wipe the squad out, it's another guy adding to your firepower.
It may surprise you to hear this, but I actually like Plasma Guns and Power Weapons, I just can't justify taking them :o(
