Default Favourite leman russ variant?

There are many out there, but which is best?
There's the vanquisher tank sniper
To the Exterminator lawn mower
Through the execution marine murderer

But which I'd best in all round games?

........
Through temptation and horror
I have held to my faith
As a drowning man grasps at a rock
Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late

Demolisher, personally. Anti-vehicle, anti infantry simultaneously. A lot of the others are pretty niche.

I use the dawn of war rts game version of russ. Battle cannon + front las cannon. The thing has popped so many tanks i lost count. Which is funny, everyone made fun of me for buying the las cannon on the front. They arent laughing when i almost never miss with it. Apparently my dice know im a top DOW player so it makes me always roll a 4+.

In 6th i can also use the battle cannon on one thing, and the las on something else. Epic.

Worst is easily the Punisher. Sure, you get 20 shots, but then you miss with half so it's not really worth it.

Best is the Executioner. Simply for the lols of putting down 5 S7 AP2 templates a turn - eat that, Grey Knights.

I read it as favourite, not best. If you want best, then the normal or the Demolisher is the one you want.

I like the Executioner because it is simply terrifying to MEQ/TEQ footsloggers.

Any Leman Russ can be outfitted to do anything well. They have so many hard points for weapons and such a variety of options that they can all do everything.

Its generally the main weapon that one chooses a variant for. Executioner for anti-MEQ, Demolisher for anti-everything via its S10 AP1 blast, Exterminator for anti-light armor, LRBT for Anti-Infantry e.t.c

My personal favourite is the Executioner. I'm a Plasma Girl (*in a Plasma World* )
