Doyou prefer the russ or the demolisher and why?
personally I like the demolisher, sure it has shorter range but that has never really been a problem for me. I field 2 with 3 Heavy Bolters and Stubber.
I think I will opt for the plain russ just for the extra range if I have to choose between them. Long range compensates for the decreased firepower and armor. However, my ideal setup is two russes and a demolisher, people just plain fear and AP2 pieplate with all that armor wrapped around it.
Point for point a standard Russ loaded with heavy bolters is a better all around tank than a demolisher in any configuration.
What do you call a lasgun with a laser sight?
If you have got the cover the demolisher has the better main weapon and is a nasty piece of equipment, but it's getting it within 24" and if armour isn't your main element it will probably die relatively quick.
I prefer both.
It depends on the type of IG army I am playing. For a standard infantry based IG army, I prefer a Russ so it can sit back at range and kill enemy troops.
For a Grenadier/Mechanized list, I prefer Demolishers to go up with some Hellhounds and draw fire away from my Chimeras with my beloved Stormies:rofl.
Either way, I equip my tanks with EA, Smoke and the triple Heavy Bolter combo.
I picked the Demolisher, because that is my favorite way to play.:happy:

I prefer the russ because it just shoots farther. though now that i think about it the demolisher would probley suit my army better because because i play cityfights. Hmmm... (thinking hard)
I abstained from voting because both perform extremely well.
The demo's range means it wont do much on turn 1, but after that its range isn't that bad on a 6'/4' table. Also the increased armour means getting flanked isn't as much of a worry. Rear armour is still soft, but if you're tank gets hit in the rear, you messed up bad.
The standard tank's range is really good. It can hit almost anywhere on a battlefield, and the fact that its damage is not a good isn't much of an issue because it will have plenty of targets to choose from. Not every weapon in your army has to be able to kill 2+sv/AV14. The range also enables you to hang back a bit, making it much harder to flank. On the downside of it, I have seen someone lose a battle cannon to a guardian squad (which promtly got chewed up by heavy bolter).
what do you call a lasgun with a laser sight?
I would prefer the Demolisher. Given typical table width, range isn't that bad of a problem, especially with a fallback lascannon. The Demo is the only reliable way to roll on the Ordnance Penetration table--always a good feeling. Better strength and AP, all good. Plus, that extra side armor makes a difference--it effectively neutralizes Eldar shooting in particular.

Must admit, I'm a normal Russie person. Demolisher always was enticing, but I have found the Russ to be enough

Well my first choice would be the vanquisher... but the next best thing is the russ
I normally play against eldar so i would only get 1 shot (if im lucky) with a demolisher.
