    Best Russ varients?

    Hi folks

    Vote for which is your fav varient of russ (excluding normal battle tank varient)

    talk about weapons (good/bad) points and anything else that comes to mind

    I have two favs perosnally but the one i voted for was the executioner, its chaos marines worst nightmare ap2 blast and three shots meaning that you can vape damn near two squads of marines everyturn, and any swarm is in trouble as well. the gets hot rule doesnt apply due to it being armour.

    the next is the vunerable demolisher, it can do allof the above but can be inaccurate due to the ordanance rolls, otherwise it would have been my number one.

    I have to go with the Demolisher, since the cannon is S10 and is a large blast allowing you to take out annoying units of Termies and Plaugebearers, plus if you give it plasma cannon sponsons you can shell out 3 blast templates a turn. Just my opinion.

    Incorrect. All Russ variants can take Plasma Cannons. Plasma guns aren't even an option.

    I personally voted for the Executioner. That bad boy can lay down 5 Plasma cannon blast templates a turn for 230 points if you give it plasma cannon sponsons.

    you cant vote battle tank because im talking about leman russ variants and not the leman russ itself, everyone loves the leman so its at first place without any votes lol

    I would have voted for the standard battletank.. that one does it for me.. it's the cheapest and the most versatile gun..

    Exterminators - are beaten by hydras who got more firepower argueably more staying power and even a better range..

    Vanquishers - could be useful if only they'd hit more often.. (don't go Pask now..)

    Executioner - If I'd want to kill terminators and such I'd go with a battletank with plasmasponsons, costs the same as the executioner, just switches one blast with a battlecannon, which in my book is better..

    Eradicator - Now we're talking, I like this tank, enough firepower to kill most infantry still and ignores their cover.. It's the incarnation of the old Hellhound, only more durable..

    Demolisher - Brutal as always, might meet some competition from the better ranged medusa.. but since they both need to go out in the open I think the demolisher wins on durability..

    Far most of the time I'll stick to my trusty battletanks.. Eventually an Eradicator might find a way into my collection, but the rest aren't really worth it to me.. Demolisher would be, but it's not really my style.. and since I intend to start a deathguard army with vindicator support I think it's most fun if they don't both rely on the same weaponry..


    Edit: the battletank kills plague marines just fine.. better range than the other alternatives and still denies them their fnp

    I'll second Mathilda Lando.

    For ==My== pick, it's either the Demolisher or Eradicator. One messes up infantry in cover, one messes up everything
