How will folks be running their LR's when 5th edition makes strength 4 weapons defensive but not our HB's? I've been thinking about just the battle cannon and a lascannon if the bc is destroyed or for AT, and skip the whole HB/sponsons issue.
truthfully, i hope they give us the option of sponson heavy stubbers(make them either twin linked, or cheaper) Forgeworld Death Korps Of Kreig tanks have sponson twin linked stubbers(twin linked is a plus for guard.....we never get anything twin-linked) anyway i rarely use the 3x heavy bolter set up with my russes, it doesnt look as realistic, and you only use them when you cant use the cannon anyway

Given that I generally run Demolishers with plas-cans, no change at all. There'll be two ways to go about it; yours (drop the sponsons and have a mobile lascannon as a backup gun) and the rolling bunker (either move & fire ordnance or sit & dakka) Either is viable, although I tend towards the former...half the job of a Russ is dictating LOS terms to the enemy. Speaking of which, it's worth noting that while sponsons may be inoperable at speed, they do add to the width of the Russ. Does anybody plan to buy the sponson upgrade just for the bigger footprint?

Its very hard to say. Lascannon only hits half the time, a single heavy bolter is useless, 3 heavy bolters aren't mobile. Hmm... If I was thought I was going to lose my cannon I would take the 3 HB, if I though I was going to moving allot I would take the Lascannon (no ordinance firing while moving now right?).
I already didn't take the sponsons, so no changes for me.
I try to keep the Russ as cheap as possible, so I can field more troops !

The same way I run my Vanquisher now: 1 heavy bolter veterans and camo netting. Keep the beast cheap, far from them and/or obscured, and don't let them know where you put it down.
