So after Baneblade got buffed stormhammer lost any point imo.
advantages:
-one better firepower
-in theory stubs can pick different targets as they are 2 separate weapons (marginal)
minuses:
-range
-while it gets one more HB, BB gets in place: a demolisher which is better and an autocannon and 2 lascannons on top of that.

I see what you’re getting at but in defence of the Stormhammer:

FF3+ and Thick Rear Armour probably still makes it the best super heavy even if it didn’t have any guns! But it does have guns, and not an awkward mix of them like the other SHTs and with no arcs.

Alongside the Shadowsword it’s got a proper niche as a defensive bulwark, add Hellhounds or Demolishers and some Flak and you’ve got a powerful BTS and Blitz guard.

Alternatively, it’s the best SHT for just marching to objectives or doubling to support vulnerable formations and daring something to engage them!

There’s inevitably going to be one variant that’s the worst, but I’d say it’s the Stormblade personally!

This! it can be useful in some builds where you just need a rock to roll forward, no waste of time firing any weapons.

Also agree. The Stormblade is worse. ShadowSword is better vs WEs and hard targets, StormSword is better against everything else, and same range on the main gun.

Ok, silly me, I missed Thick Rear Armour.

Well, you've all just about convinced me I might need to give myself the option of fielding some stormhammers from time-to-time. :)
