I vote for the basic Battle Tank. I wouldn't take any of the others except perhaps for a an Exterminator or Demolisher.
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
Standard Battle Cannon variant, especially for the points.
Leman + Hull HB, Sponson HBs, Smoke = 158 points O' Doom:w00t:
I would consider the Demolisher #2, and the Exterminator and Vanquisher as tied for 3rd, but only in an AC with BS4.

The Exterminator and battle cannon would be good against hordes and MEQs. the Exterminator's more useful against less numerous armies and light armor, like ork speed freeks, the battle cannon can hit a bunch of guys, and the Vanquisher's good against armor. Each has it's niche, but overall the basic Leman with a BC is the most versatile, being able to take down MEQs and large tightly packed hordes (nids, ork boyz, LaTD, other IG). i think its #1 Battle Cannon #2 Exterminator #3 Vanquisher, and that's my two cents.

I wanna vote for two; standard LR and Vanquisher
But I chose Vanquisher as it is rarer and stupid little kids don't have them

I voted executioner.... Its not that good, but its very very cool, and has by far the best name.....
Inquistion force WIP. Pics on posts 17 and 23.
Well I had to vote for the Demolisher first. In my army it hits the table first and as a result the enemy always seems to fixate on its big gun.
I like the exterminator second for sheer flanking and suppressive fire ability in my AC. I field 3 of them and they chew through squads like congress does the budget.
Basic russ is 3rd in my book. 2 of them hit the table beside my Demolisher in my standard games and in my AC.
Vanquisher 4th, I have one built and will be fielding it on tuesday for the 1st time. I hope to see some value added from this point sink vs my mechanized foes. If not it still has 3 heavy bolters and a coaxil storm bolter.
The rest fall in line I think the conqueror with be #5 with the Exectutioner being #6, Thunderer #7 (Already field 2 demolishers) and the Destroyer being #8, kind of redundant if fielding Demolishers kitted out for AT work and a Vanquisher.
I use a Standard, Demolisher and Exterminator. But I love the idea of the Tank Hunter especialy in Gaunts Ghosts: Honour Guard. Coolest tank ever.
My Exterminator moves in Squadron formation with my 2 Hellhounds and always does darned well v's Nidz/not MEQ's. My Demolisher/Russ both have thier days though I quite like to use the Dmolisher anti-tank and the Russ often fails to do anything.
The Vanquisher suffers a bit from over-cool, it's too good and popular for me. I tend to be put off things that everyone else likes.
I don't see thepoint of a Conqueror, the Exterminator is much more reliable, especialy with spacing out. The Executioner is a laugh...1 Plasma Cannon or a Battle Cannon?
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
i really like the exterminator because it allows the IG to have a truely mobile fire support. theres nothing better than 3 heavy bolters and a twin linked autocannon advancing up the battlefield wasting infantry all around it.
