    i would field the basislisk because it is less points but still has the big ordnace weapon. it is also useful when you pay the points for indirect fire because you can fire indirect until they get within 36 inches and then change to normal fire.

    The Lemun Russ.
    Deals even more death than the basilisk and can soak up huge amounts of fire.

    well i feild one of each because they are both good, but if you have to pick one i would pick the lemun russ and give it heavy bolters all around, so if you move it you can fire all the bolters and if you stay still you can fire the battle cannon, if you know your facing sumone without alot of range then i might say the basilisk just because it can fire indeerectly and wehile the sludge acroos the board you can blow them to bits from behind cover

    I asked the same question a while back, i came to this conclusion, While a Basilisk has the range, it lacks the armour, then again it has a better strength, so it all comes down to personal preference

    I decided on the Leman Russ, and lots of them, though as i grow as an IG player i may begin to lean a little more towards the Basilisk, it&#39;s a question of mobility or power, do you want the power to destroy your enemy from afar? if so go with teh basilisk, if you want to you move around and chase them away, go with teh Leman Russ

    hope this helped a bit

    Leman Russ is my choice. Basilisk comes in handy when u have 100 pts extra.

    Basilisk. I don&#39;t know how many times this puppy has won me a game. It can shoot anywhere, even where it cant see and most of the time It will never be shot AT as long as you put it behind a piece of blocking terrain.
