Well? Which do you like? I like Crossbowman for 3 reasons
1) Models are cool
2) I like being able to use 1 rank and be able to shoot next turn (Better then handguns)
3) Has a high strength (Better then Bows)
So which do you like?
O & G: 5/0/1
I like handguns because they look good and are good for fluff reasons, ie artillery based army (nuln)

crossbows. have great range and good stregnth.
handgunners: they have good AP and that first round of shots ussualy makes up for it's lower range. also you can get the hochland in the unit.
archers: they're skirmishers, and because of this they have a whole range of options. artillery gaurd, rear gaurd, scouts, march blockers.
handgunners and crossbows are ussualy one or the other, it's the fluff and the army your aggainst that decides which. aggainst HE, go crossbow. chaos, handgunners. archers show up if you like having skirmishers or not.
that's the thing about perfection, it can only get worse.
Against lightly armored enemies, Crossbows are better across the board. by light armored I mean 5+ to no save. Sure a 5+ save enemy still will get an armor roll with crossbows but its rather negligable and the extra range is very good. I don't like bows because they are not very strong and if you are going to take them, you need to get hunters. Unfortunately you can only get one.

i like handgunners because of the way they can make a unit such as orks fall no there arse...becuase of ther AP and there st...i ike crossbows because well...there crossbows...who cant love them...
P.S. Blood angels rule, the anger lets us ignore wounds ...hehehe
Crossbows. Models rock. Longer range, Above av Strength and relitivly cheap.
I know that we weren't talking about huntsmen, but i love the models and the extended range, and the fact that they are scouts.
Other than that, i like the Crossbowmen, cos they are a great unit, and often underestimated.

I tend to take handgunners more or less because i like the model and I cant afford the xbowman, and archers/huntsmen are great for sneaky missions i like to use them for war machine hunting but overall its more a flavor than actual which i prefer... hope that made sense...
