Default Idea for Broadsides

I have thought up an idea for a unit of 2 Broadsides. Both take the Targeting Array and the Shas'vre takes a HWTL and HWDC with 1 or 2 SD. I know it's an expensive unit but it's something that will almost definatly hit every turn and can absorb an aweful lot of enemy shooting. What do yous think?

i might do that if those 2 BS were my only anti-tank.
otherwise, they are pretty accurate already.

what i like to put TA on are my fusion gunners in my
steath team. that's where ya need extra marks-
manship skills, right up in someone's face. ;D ;D ;D
broadsides are usually far enough away to get a second shot.

its pretty solid, though i prefer just 2 broadsides with TAs and a team leader with a HW-TL.

reason being, this squad will never be brought below half strength. its good for VP conservation.

"What warriors of men can stand beside the Space Wolves! The Sons of Fenris they are, hardened in the forge of their harsh world, eager for battle and honour. They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war. None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."

Normally I prefere a broadside with either a targeting array or a ASS with a hard-wired multi-tracker. A fun trick is to place a broadside 7" in a forest at the start of a game so that pesky Lascannon can't nab it. You the use the ASS the next turn and open fire!!!!
For the Tau'va!

the ASS system as 1st turn protection sounds pretty good.

I generally want to only deploy 2 broadsides tho, so mine are generally deployed with TAs and the lead takes 2 shield drones with him.

with with the TA and twinlink they still miss more often than i should like.

Well, if you have horrible luck, yes. Otherwise, you should be good with A.S.S. and a TL/SD upgrades to the Team Leader.

Oh yeah, and don't waste the points on the Shas'Vre, what the heck does a Broadside need +1 WS for?
