How's it going? I played Warhammer 40k back in 5th edition, back when I didn't have any disposable income and basically was a kid who had no idea what he was doing. Since then I've decided to return to the game after over a decade. After spending a couple of weeks mulling over which army I wanted to play this time around, I decided on Space Marines (chapter undecided). I purchased the Start Collecting Box and it just came in the mail the other day!

I'm guessing there's another forum where I can ask for advice on arming my units, but I guess I'll ask here too. I wanted to split my 10 Tactical Space Marines into two 5-man squads. I figured that's the best way to have two Sergeants and two special/heavy users in my initial army. I want a generalist set-up, something that would be good against most armies. What special/heavy and Sergeant setup should I use to achieve that purpose?
