    Well SM can be pretty shooty too, just make 5 men tactical teams and give each a hvy weapon. The Dark Angels have a little advantage here, by switching the lascannon in tac. squads for plasma cannons.

    By using this method SM gets lots of hvy weapons for very little points, when deploying just put the marines as far away from each other as possible and the ordnance threath is reduced a bit

    Orks make an excellent shooty army, because nearly all of their weaponry is assault or can at least be fired on the move, meaning you have a very mobile, large force. Who cares about the 5+ to hit, when you have over 100 firing all at once...

    It has to be Imperial Gaurd. We can get S9 AP2 R72'' ordnance weapons. If an entire Infantry Platoon, which could be up to 55 men (25 at the min.) fire on a Space Marine sqaud of 10. They are not going to last very long. IG can get weapons for cheap too such as Heavy Bolters 10pts to Lascannons for 20pts, plus specialist anti-tank and supporting-fire sqauds. And if you want something bigger we are the only army has a very wide range of Super-Heavy Battle Tanks such as Baneblades or Super-Heavy Titan Killing Battle Tanks such as Stormswords. Imperial Gaurd are the best 'shooty-army', we just have more guns......

    It's not the gun that kill, it's the person using that gun

    Sorry to burst your bubble colonel, but Iron Warriors can take more ordnance. And yeah a platoon outshoots a squad, but that's not even points cost. Oh yeah we get heavy bolters for 5 points

    IMO guard can be pretty rubbish at shooting if there is quite a bit of terrain. Especially because lasguns at medium-long range are about as handy as a pair of safety scissors
