My vote goes to the Standard - more flexible and has frequently shot me senseless. I seem to find I can work around the drawbacks of the other variants that I have met so far...

.... I was sorely tempted to say "The Primarch" but I thought better of it :)

Got to go with the Tri Heavy bolter 'std' variant point for point probably one of the best tanks In the game, great all rounder. 8)

Yes, even when the battle cannon goes. (It's only a matter of time, right? :mrgreen:) you still get nine heavy bolter shots. Eheheheheheheheh.

My favorite "exotic" Russ is probably the Executioner. I mainly just like it for it's looks though.

I have always liked the demolisher! Take 3 with heavy bolter goodness and rush them all 12" in turn 1 then blow smoke! It creates such a problem for your opponent its not really funny. The Exterminator is really good, especially in the hands of the Space Puppies! I Love my Conquerer! It sucks on the battle field but i love it anyways. The Executioner is mentioned above and i think it does deserve a special mention. It suffers because 4th ed rules means the plasma cannon is not as good, but still a fearsome tank!

But. My new favourite guard tank is! (drum roll) The Leman Russ Annilator! OH MY GOD! 1 twin linked lascanon and 2/3 heavy bolters and poss another las! Amazing tank! An annilator with armour 14.

Being a member of the unofficial Longbeard fan club i'll have to go with this.

There was a time I would of voted for the demolisher but experience has taught me length is more important than girth. :deadhorse: I have neither though, so I use BA...

Actually, my Necron force will have to disagree with you, and violently. A Demolisher with Plasma is so horrifically dangerous that it must die the very second it shows itself, and the short range of most Necron firepower means that taking it out usually requires overextending. A decent player with a Plasmolisher will almost always punch well above its cost in tactical or pure point terms.

Plasmolishers (fun! new word! :mrgreen: )are damned expensive though, so they're not always worth the points. It depends on who you're facing.

I think Exterminators are pretty rough.. In general I like them more than any other leman russ but they can't handle it by themself.

If an Executioner could get plasma sponsons, it would own all. I can't understand why it wouldn't have the option either.

You enjoy your witty retorts that don't actually answer questions or advance conversation. My question was far from answered.

'Owning all' would be my own opinion, obviously. A demolisher cannon is much more powerful than a executioner cannon and yet it can have the sponsons. I realize the ranges are different, but then again so are the templates.

For Ryza, the plasma cannon forgeworld, you think they could make that possible. And for the point cost, it evens out. So again, I can't understand why it wouldn't have the option. If a future update comes out for the Executioner, it should definitely gain that.

An executioner cannon followed by two plasma sponsons and a hull heavy flamer for clean-up would be great. It would be terrible against other vehicles, but do about the same ot heavy troops as the exterminator does to light troops.

It's probably game reasons. I was going to say that, but it was just as easy to note that you more or less said that. If they can't do it and it seems like they should be able to do it, it's inevitably game reasons.
