    It depends on the list not the flavor of the day.

    As what spec.ops said, we need to know whats going on with the rest of your army before we can help you. If the second HQ from each option is going to be with broadsides, I would go option 3, they are both cheap and will save you points elsewhere, plus the missile/plasma on the second suit are both long (longish anyways) range weapons to sort of compliment the massive range of the railguns. But then again, adding a HQ to a broadside isnt something id normally do.
