Default How many Railguns do you take in your army? (Broadsides or Hammerheads)

Here we go!

THE HOW MANY RAILGUNS DO YOU TAKE IN YOUR ARMY POLL!

Note: MIX is a mix of Broadside railguns and hammerhead railguns.

PS: Broadside Twin Linked railguns count as one railgun, for simplicity purposes.

Uh...how big a game are we talking? I'll take a different list for 1000 points then for 2000.

The new codex might make a difference, too, so you might want to clarify if you're talking about the new codex or old.

At the moment (ie, before I get sniper drones) I have two Hammerhead Railguns and a Broadside. It's likely to become two Broadsides and a Hammerhead later to free up points.

I'm talking like how many Hammerheads or Broadsides do you have?

In total I mean.

Any points.

Usually one of each for me. Will also be thinking about trading my hammerhead for a braodside in future to free up points like Faolin.

Um...... 2 + 1 is 3. : 2 Hammerheads, and one Broadside. Soon to be 2 Broadsides and a Hammerhead. Although two Hammerheads are really really nasty.

3 broadsides = 6 railguns
1 hammerhead = 1 railgun

Occasionaly I take an ionhead but that's not very often.

Twin Linked railguns count as one for simplicity.

I take one hammerhead railgun and two broadsides. I'm thinking of swapping the broadsides for another hammerhead for mobility and multi-tasking. On Sunday two broadsides with their twin linked railguns completely missed an Ork Warboss with all their shots! All I needed was one to hit then I would have instant killed him on a 2+! Oh well. But still.. twin linked BS3 is better than one shot BS4.
