Default Broadside Loadout?

I'm going to be going to GD Chicago, and I want to pick up some Forgeworld broadsides. The question is, is there any reason to get the TL plasma one? (Assuming it's a viable codex choice, I don't have it yet) Or would it be better to stick with the SMS?

Secondly, I always see broadsides in groups of two. Is three overkill? I'm just thinking of getting two, but I thought I might want to get three while I'm there.

If they're always fielded in twos, why get three?

Man you need 3 squads of 3. There is a twinked out bug army comming from the Syracuse area. Its called the "godzilla bug army" and its about as twinked out as you can make it.

2 tyrants 1 with wings
5 carnifex's: 2 with the S10 ven cannons 3 with the reroll to hit AND to wound
8 Ravagers 2 squads of 4
3 Zoenthropes
2 squads of 6 geensteelers
2 squads of spinegaunts

Have fun aginst that. Since composition is no longer a factor at the Chicago GD, by all means use what you want. You could even spend a total of 120 points: put two squads of 6 firewarriors each and that would meet your troop requirement.

I'm a 'Nid player too. I loves me some Dakkafexes.

Any reason to take plasma over SMS on a Broadside?

Only give it Plasma if it is a team leader, otherwise you can't get an A.S.S, and every Broadside needs an A.S.S.

I never use the Plasma Rifle upgrade the SMS is much more flexable weapon in my opinion.

When fighting Nids I like to kit my Broadsides with either Multi Track for a higher volume of fire , or Shield Gen for Extra Protection.

My friend always uses three. They have SMS. And markerlights (pathfinders).

Yeah, he kicks my butt if I'm not careful.
