    So I bought a Leman Russ...

    AND THERE IS NO HULL HEAVY BOLTER! </breaths>

    Ok, I should have expected it, since everyone always has the lascannons on their models, but it was annoying.

    Sofor you folks that use 3xHBs on your Russes, what are ou using on the hull mount?

    well there is a couple of things you can do... order the sprue that it came off of in the box for another one... cut a HB from the HW box and replace the lascannon with it. Get some plasticard and do the same thing but keep your lascannon instead of destroying it.

    Yeah I felt the same when I received mine... just finished building my demolisher a couple of days ago and now I have a lascannon on it too...

    if you are planning on playing IG you'll probably end up getting Heavy Weapon teams, they have a Heavy Bolter in each pack, so that might be one way to get an extra one for your Russ.

    You could also buy a demolisher and fit it with the Lascannon/Plasma Cannon weapon options which would leave you two heavy bolters spare. Basically all you would need to do is cut the hull lascannon off your russ and attach the heavy bolter to the pivoting section of the hull lascannon. Thats how I got Hull HB's for both my russes.. the demolisher isn't half bad either!

    Thanks folks. I think the Demolisher idea might work for me since I kinda want one anyway and this give me an excuse.

    I just forgot how GW tends to no include in their kits all the options they make available in the codex, heck, I remember when you had to mod your own predator annihilator.

    EDIT:
    Bah, I'll probably want the HBs for the demo sponsons. I guess I'll just have to cut the lascannon off and use the HB from a weapons team.

    I'm not sure but I think that when I built my Leman Russ Exterminator for my Space Wolves it came with 3 heavy bolters (1 metal and 2 plastic).

    I looked for the exterminator on the GW canada site, but it wasn't there. Has that model been discontinued? Shame if it has.

    instead of cutting off the lascannon you could do what I did with my Russ
    I used the heavy flamer from the accessories sprue and a HB and placed it where the driver usually is, and placed a driver in the extended section that ususally is the hull weapon mount

    I could have sworn that they came with three Heavy Bolters. Weird.

    In fact, I think I even have one laying around here that actually has three Heavy Bolters on it, but now I can't remember if they came in the original packaging or not.

    Anyhow, all of the above suggestions are good, and mpdscott's conversion, while a bit unorthodox, is strangely appealing too. I like that one.

    Leman Russ exterminators were the only Russ model to come with a hull heavy bolter. It was metal and had greater detail lavished upon it compared to its sponson look alikes.
