Default Broadside vs. Hammerhead

If you had the option to take three Broadsides or a tricked out Hammerhead I would take the hammerhead any day of the week. More mobile, hard as nails, same fire power...? Personally I would take three hammerheads if the points were warranted, either 2 railguns and 1 ion cannon or 2 ion cannons or 3 railguns. I would be interested to know what those people who play tau think though.

I had read that and it inspired this post, I really wanted a post specifically for the broadsides vs the hammerheads. Just the pros and cons, fluff issues, and how they themseles play, not so much how they fit best into an army or how to best equip them. If the mod(you?) wants to kill it please feel free though. I was just curious and as a necron and not tau player, I didn't know. srry

I am not a mod but I know they will smite people for posting things that could fit into similar threads.


If you are looking for anti-tank the Broadside is better. If you want anti-infantry then the Ionhead is better. The railhead is really a jack of all trades that doesn't do either very good.

found it after much searching. When I topic searched I got sloppy and missed, if it were a snake it would have bit me! Sorry to all for wasting thread space. :'(
