Leman Russ Exicutioner w/Plasma Sponsons
2 Penal Legion and a Hydra
It's kind of non-negotiable but I need to field either one set or the other. My other HS are 2x Manticores and I have 4 units of Melta vets. Thanks for any help.

I always find a hydra useful, i havent used penal troops but they seem hit and miss depending on what you roll.
I'm sure an exicutioner would deal some damage but at the same time it is a pretty big points sink and is liable to get shot to pieces
I went for the hydra and 2x scoring units.
It's really as the executioner with plasma sponsoons is just so... expensive for my taste

The Executioner can give you help with some long range low AP, which is nice.
I didn't vote because you should try both and see which one you prefer to use overall, play one game with the penal legions + Hydra and one with the executioner. More than likely you will stick with the executioner for it's ability to help with a mob (Which i think a LRBT will do just fine and for less). Good Luck!
I'd go for 2 Hydras and a Penal Legion squad, here's why.
The Leman Russ Executioner is useful, but you have 4 squads of meltavets that can kill whatever it would be targetting. It is designed to do two things:
1) Kill 2+ saves/ monsterous creatures, you seem to have that taken care of.
2) Kill light vehicles, Hydras will do this better for less.
Since your AT weapons seem to be short ranged (melta) your 2 Manticores will have trouble dealing with your opponents vehicles at a range, the Hydras can help with this.
Two Penal Legion squads are ideal for actually taking an objective near a short edge, as one may come on the wrong board edge but the one squad can still provide a psycologica threat to your opponent before it comes on, and can cause them to react to you, putting objective in the middle of the table, bunching togeather... This one squad can still make them react to you.
If you cant get the two hydras then i'd go with 1 and the two Penal Legion squads.

Autocannons. Only reason I voted for the hydra.
I voted hydra... as its the best of the two...
Who voted executioner?!?!? more people than voted for the hydra.
