I Brought a Imperial Gaurd Leman russ tank and made it orky, I just dont know how much pointa its worth. ATM i have an army of 780 pts and if the leman russ dont make it staright up to 1000 points can you let me know what to make it up to it?
A Leman Russ generally sits around 150 - 170 pts fully equiped, depending on how you equip it. You have 220 pts left to play with (just doing the math for everyone else :sleep. Now it is possible to make said Leman Russ 220 pts, I wouldn't suggest it for the following reasons:
- It has a big sign saying "kill me" written all over it
-at 1000 pts a 220 pt model is IMO too big of an investment
-it's weak on sides and back, and isn't as durable as a Land Raider
-an ork army needs numbers, and a 220 pts tank is a good way to loose bodies
-the upgrades used to get it up to 220 pts aren't worth the points you're pumping into it
I think a Leman Russ is the best Tank the Orks/ Imperial Guard can get! However, I run my Leman Russ's with Heavy Bolters, and other than that, no additional upgrades. This keeps them inexpensive, and effective.
I kinda disagree with you bloody blade, I think armour plates are worth it no questions, they litteraly saved my tank 2 times and its cannon once last game i played(good luck but meh) Also a red paint job is a realy good 3 pts 1 inch can mean the diffeance when you need it. I think that if you spend that maney points on a tank you should spend 13 more and make it a bit better but I do agree 220 pts is WAY to maney upgrades Mine costs 180 and works well.
Well well well an orky russ.
Word of advice from one waagh to another..There is only 10 points of wargear REQUIRED for this thing(i feel are required anyway)
Armor plates, riggers and a red paint job.
Top that ontop of the Russprice+heavybolter(always hevay bolter never lascannon, lascannon is a waste waste waste)
If you do decide to use sponsons either choice is good, but i'd sudgest the HB's just due to survivability.....
Thanks for the replys but i've gone for red paint job and armor plates xD
And ontop of that i'm going to get some stormboyz since i only have 2 wartrucks for fast attack and they do look rather cool stormboyz
Storm boys are only good if you're taking heavy #'s of them, otherwise they die just as fast if not faster than normal slugga's
