Default demolisher or battle tank

In an imperial guard army should there be a leman russ battle tank or a leman russ demolisher.

We know how much the tanks cost.

Leman. They are our monsterous creatures. Demolishers are an afterthought, Russ is the mainstay.

Without more information about your army, its theme, who you're fighting most often, what missions you normally play, and what terrain you use... the Russ.

Technically, you should use the russ.

However, I only use the Demolisher. Range is generally not a problem for me, so I tend to take the bigger bang.

I don't have a guard army (yet...), but I find myself attracted to the extra armour of the demolisher... dunno if it's right that I am or not.

On a normal 4x4 board, a demolisher is preety good idea. The tank essentially can cover 1/2 the board with it's demolisher cannon and 2/4 of it with it's plasma cannons when it's on 1 edge of the table. Russes are cheaper and more vertitle compared to the Demolisher.

I personly think the demolisher is shameful and pitifle peice of nothingness. :

I prefere the Madusa, 12+ range on the demolishers, but less armor.
Or the thunderer, only weapon, a demolisher cannon.

EItherway, the best thing about the demolisher cannon, or other ordnace weapons that have the same S and AP, it melts termies. >

Yes, the Medusa is an almighty siege-gun... but let's be honest here, she blows up when you cough at it loudly. :


Anyway, the topic is technically just a Russ vs Demol argument, no sneaking in other options!

Russ. My army has 3. Don't need more bang or range, just need more dice to get a "hit" on scatter
