Armed with TL Gatling Railguns (w/ submunitions) + burst cannon and TL smart missiles.
I'd pay the points
The point cost seems too low...
Just for railguns...at BS 4 with subm. meaning they are 55 a piece.
TL (+50%) + gatling (150%) = 200%...and you need to add in a 100% for base...meaning each 'weapon' is 300% of cost. Each 'weapon' is a pair of RGs (TL'd).
So each TL-RG is now 55 * 300% = 165. AND you need at least four of pairs to be gatling (*).
Thus 165 * 4 = 660 just for the RGs. Then add in a ll the other costs...
(*) A gatling weapon is an upgrade to a twin-link. And VDR is supposed to be WYSIWYG - so the model should look like this. A gatling weapon requires a minimum of '4' gun barrels. In your build, since you are twn-linking to get a better accuracy, each 'barrel' is actually two gun barrels. Thus the model needs to have 4 barrels * two barrels (TLing) = 8 barrels!
