Default Which Russ Eats Troops fastest?

Well i am rather stuck as to what i should model my second leman russ as...... I was going to go for a second Exterminator but then i thought it might be fun to experiment a bit! SO i am stuck trying to figure out what lovely russ is the best at eating hordes of enemy troops (Orks, Nids, other guard.......) So anyone got suggestions? The base of the tank will be a German Tiger 1 so lets go for something a bit fitting! As things sit i am stuck between these 4 but any and all idea's would be great!

Leman Russ Punisher (Take cover saves....i got 20 shots)
Leman Russ Eradicator
Leman Russ Demolisher
Leman Russ Exterminator (Listed just in case it IS the best choice...)

Any and all suggestions\opinions are welcome!

If your looking for something that looks like the Tiger then my money is on the Eradicator. It gives you an extra foot of range over the punisher, is cheeper and no cover saves can be taken against it. That said, if points and range aren't a big deal then the punisher is deffinately a sexy tank to deal with hordes

Generally speaking the Vanilla russ or Demolisher are the best choices. One is cheap and can sit at the back of the table all day lobbing shells in, and the other is death on tracks to T5 and below as well as most vehicles.

However if you genuinely want a tank specifically designed to kill horde infantry, take the Eradicator. Laughing in the face of those ruins/Aegis Line or that KFF is a huge advantage which more than makes up for any other gun available to you.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

For me it's got to be the punisher, stick on hvy bolter sponsons and a stubber for 29 strength 5 shots and with commander pask it can even hurt nids and flyers.

this also reflects my opinion on the horde killer of tanks.

I'd stick with the vanilla russ, the demolisher's range is too short and I hate rolling 20 dices..the Executioner is another great tank, a squad of battle tanks and another of executioners is pure destruction..
