How wide do you go with your Saurus and why?

I usually go 6 wide, as this is how many fit into combat against normal 5 wide troops. There was a discussion awhile ago about why to use 5. Basically 5x4 will on average give you the same or better combat resolution. I go 6 wide as generally I am not as concerned about winning combat, but getting as many kills as possible.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
I usually go 5x4 but am thinking about trying 14 wide when I play dwarves or empire
How on earth do you use that?

Quannum, funkin' out in every way. Since 1987.
With 2 attacks each, I think that I would go with 6 wide, to maximise attacks, particularly when armed with spears.
This means that they should always get at least 10 or 12 attacks even against the most devastating enemy. It may drop the combat resolution down but I can follow the mathematical reason why +1 combat resolution for the extra rank (5x4) versus (6x3) stacks up when you add 4 extra attacks, but I think that all in all the attacks would be worth it.
5 wide 14 is exesive
Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...
I kill far more enemy troops with my skinks than I ever have with saurus. 14 wide, you can use them as a screen for most troops (not steggies) then as they begin to be whittled down, the skinks can leap out from behind them and start killing stuff. It also protects things like kroxigors and carnosaurs.
