a leman russ executioner with plasma cannon sponsors and a lascannon with pask.. oh RIGHT.. you mean the most efficient... demolisher for sure
I just use the standard Battle tank and it works fine for me
We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
The demolisher, it has a high rear armour and it's main cannon can kill anthing without multiple wounds. S10 destroys vehicles and AP2 kills termies.
The range isn't that much of a disadvantage, how many of your opponents want to get in a long range shooting war? Besides you can still move and fire.

IG Best Gen 1st overall of 10 DE 4th overall of 6
Eldar 3rd Overall/Best General of 26--2nd Overall/Best General of 7--1st Overall/Best General of 11
Demolisher, LRBT, and Executioner. After that, the Eradicator (but I'd rather have a Hellhound). The Punisher, Vanquisher, and Exterminator are overpriced.
The demolisher, however, is currently the king. Most armies want to get in your face, and the Demolisher punishes them for doing just that.

I voted for the standard Leman Russ Battle Tank as I use two of them in my 2K list. For the points you spend, the standard Russ is a very capable tank.

Sure its not a Russ, but as I have no free Heavy Support for them...
Seriously, Medusas rock. Park a chimera 50% across its front and plug away or put it in reserve. By the time enemy kills all three, they won't have much left (and they have to choose between them and the 3 Vendettas).
Demoliosher no doubt. High Str, Low AP, Big Template, High Armour. Whats not to like? Ok it's not got a great range but thats why you move and lets face it, 24" isn't that short when you take deployment and movement into consideration.
Sure you've got the Plasma tank of doom and all the other lauded specialised tanks but when you need the job done, any job, you know the Demolisher will do it and for the points it's, to me, a no brainer.
"Which Leman Russ is the best?"
"Whats your favourite kind of Leman Russ?"
"... but which do you think is the most effective on the table top?"
Why can't people make up their mind when making polls..? Those are three different questions..
Best: Executioner with every possible upgrade including Pask.
Favourite: Standard Leman Russ Battletank.
Most Efficient: Demolisher - for the multiple reaons others already stated before me.
