Default How many heavy weapons in 1k army?

I realize that some might be playing anti tank, while others are playing hybrid armies and such. Keeping that in mind, what is a healthy number of heavy weapons to have in 1k? I am counting a Leman russ as 1 heavy weapon. Do you have a minimum number that you have found, through your experience, to be effective?

Edit: I am talking a fairly standard shooty type army. I am playing Cadian in particular, but would love to hear of others peoples experience with other styles of play.

i take a very heavy weapon heavy army, so i usually go for one in every infantry squad and a leman russ/demolisher every 800ish points. you might want to not taken them in infantry squads and instead have dedicated squads. ita ll depends on your style and the rest of your army.

I have...

1 multilaser
3 heavy bolters
1 autocannon
2 missile launchers
1 lascannon
1 heavy stubber
In a 1000 point army.

A pretty fare mix.

Right now I am working on trying to make a fairly diverse force which contains:
2 las cannons
1 leman russ (heavy bolter side sponson, hull mountain las cannon, etc..)
1 autocannon
4 missile launchers

It also contains some decent HTH options. I just wanted to make sure I am not going to get blown out of the water by not front loading more heavy weapons. Note I only have 1 heavy weapon in my HQ, and its in my command squad.
