Default Leman Russ or Demolisher?

Hey everyone,

I just purchased a Demolisher kit, and it allows me to create a Demolisher or a standard Leman Russ.
For an 1000 point army, which should I take (and build.)

An army list will be posted later.

Thanks

Krez

For regular battles i would take the Leman Russ because of its long range battle cannon. If you plan to use it in city fighting or something of the sort, take the demolisher.

Ah, the age-old question. Post the list so we can be of more help, part of it is what you are lacking in your list. In general though Demolisher is better for cityfight, and LR is better for a normal tank. Demolisher cna be used to deny flanks though.

have to agree with the above post
leman russ is the main battle tanlk of the ig
demolisher is a more unique option and harder to use correctly

Well, what I'm doing is building my Demolisher kit with the Demolisher turret, and grabbing a Vanquisher turret off of Forge world. That way, you can easily convert it to be either a standard 'Russ (I'm going to use the vanquisher turret as a normal 'Russ Battlecannon turret usually) or a Demolisher.

Seems a bit of a silly question to me, why would you buy a Demolisher kit to then build it into an ordinary Russ? You might aswell have bought a normal Russ kit and saved the money.

I'm betting that he wants the ability to switch them out.

1000 points?
I'd go with both an Demolisher and Battle Tank.
I always use them. ;D
