Default Leman Russ compatibly

Hey all
I'm just starting a Guard army, and wanting to save money, am intending to magnetize all my Leman Russes, but ive noticed that the standard Russ kit and the Demolisher kits have different turrets, are the weapons compatable with both turrets or will say the Nova cannon only fit the regular turret for example?
Thanks in advance
Zas

Yes the russ kit weapons will not fit the turret of the demolisher kit I'm afraid. Still just takes one of each and you potentially have all the variants. That's 60 right there.

Since the new Leman Russ/Exterminator/Eradicator/Vanquisher kit came out, the turrets now fit both on the Demolisher + variants.

I believe he was asking whether a weapon such as the nova cannon would fit onto the main turret from a demolisher kit. If that wasn't the case, then sorry I've misread the question.

The LRBT weapons will only fit on the LRBT turret, and you can't easily change the weapon, but the only really useful weapons are either the battlecannon or exterminator variant, demolisher is useful for the demolisher and the executioner, very easy to change the weapons on it. You can always do what I did and get extra turrets from a bits website if you feel the need to be able to field everything.

The whole turret from a LRBT kit will fit on the chassis from a Demolisher and vice-versa, but the weapons are not interchangeable. A battle cannon will not fit on a demolisher turret and a demolisher cannon will not fit on a LRBT chassis, for example.

Fuck the Meta-game

with minimal conversion it would be possible to magnetize one turret to accept all weapons, they are much closer in design than you think, but it could be done with the right tools and planning.Its quite likely its already been done and is floating around the net.
