Default Leman Russ

Thinking of getting a Leman Russ for my witch hunter army with inducte imperial guard. Could you share some good Russ tactics with me? What wepons and upgrades to use and how to use the Russ in battle?

Thanx!

The Russ can be used in many ways, but the best method for the standard Leman Russ is to sit there and blow the hell out of people. I give mine Heavy Bolter sponsons and a Lascannon hull weapon, meaning even if the main gun is lost, it can still take on anything I need it to.

Agreed, and now that it can move 6" and still fire the battle cannon it can advance along with the footsloggers to deliver some heavy covering fire and act as a powerful line breaker.

However, moving and shooting the Battlecannon cripples its accuracy, so I don't recommend it.

Personally I have 3 HB on my Leman Russ. It comes in handy as a mobile Heavy weapon team, great horde killing tank... ;D

Trillian_1369 has a point. The use of heavy bolters (or in my case i would use multi-lasers)are great horde killing weapons with devastating results. Russes are great city fight units as well. A small size battle tank romind around the flaming streets will scare the crap outa anyone.
