Default Hmm need some help.

I'm looking to get some units to fill up my heavy weapon slots but I cannot decide between Broadsides or Hammerheads. I'm leaning more towards broadsides but the HH has that neat little thing called an ordance plate...

Currently The models I own are as follows:

6 Crisis Suits
1 Aun'shi
1 Angkor Prok
4 Stealths
1 Steath Team Leader
39 FW
24 Kroot
2 Devilfishes
23 or so Gun Drones
1 Shield Drone

I am also currently trying to figure out a few decent lists but am having trouble deciding on suit configs. I was planning on doing a squad of 3 with TL Plasma and another with TL missile pods but I'm just not too sure about that.

First, I suggest the HH, as you just can't go wrong with it.
Second, fill out your stealth team (maybe buy another team leader, and demote him?), then use that, a fireknife crisis team (3) plus HQ (plasma, missile, TL, and no bodyguards), 20 kroot, your FWs and DF combo, then maybe a squad of Drones or three, if you can find the spare points.
Remember, 1 HH in 1k, two in above, unless it's not your style.
As is, BSs aren't worth it in most armies, but it's possible you might like it better than the HH, but I believe the majority of people don't.
Don't forget, don't overload on FWs unless you want to play static, then there's little use of stealth teams.
Remember, this is a guideline, not a real list, as that would ruin the point of making your own army. Try things out, find your style.
Luck and fun ^_^.

not a bad start but for a shoppinglist I'd go for :

2 stealths
2 HH
1 BS

that should put you on a good fotting, come to the AL section for some advice on a list to go with that

it would be better to lean toward the hammerheads if you prefer to play your armies in a static fashion (with 2 devilfishes it looks like that). Although in the long term one squad of braodsides is always a good thing for the raw firepower and more accurate railguns! Although id agree with dizzy, start off with those HH's.

IMO the HH is better and funner, so i'd go for that. On the suits, try to make them interchangable if you can, I pinned mine.

he has 2 troops Fishes and some kroot so he can make mech 1000pts with the 2 HH or a good hybrid 1500 with the 2 HH and one BS for the heavy AT.

very true, I like the look of any of the lists that could be produced with these models, post them up in the army lists board one day when you can!
