Exterminator for sure. Already got the model, just need to set it down and let it unleash piles of high strength firepower.

The old tanks from the 2nd guard codex are back so basically : Leman russ battle tank, Exterminator, Vanquisher, Eradicator, Demolisher, Punisher, Executioner.

You also get The Hydra, basilisk, griffon, medusa, colossus, griffon, manticore and the deathstrike for artillery

Finaly you get 3 hellhounds variants, Hellhound, banewolf and devildog. they basically are anti GEQ, anti-MEQ and anti-tank respectively.

For myself, i'll be dusting off my old griffon while crossing fingers that's its not too broken. I dont plan on using any kind of Russ nor any kind of hellhounds. They seem a little pricey for what they offer and i just rather use more of those lovely cheap infantryman.

Russ Chasis:
Standard Russ: You know the drill here
Exterminator: Carries high class autocannons
Executioner: Super plasma cannon
Demolisher: another fan favourite you're all familiar with
Vanquisher: Will be a ridiculous tank killer if you give it the tank special character
Punisher: the rumoured ridiculous gatling gun
Eradicator: griffon class template that ignores gover

Chimera Chasis:
Basilisk: Same as 4th ed
Griffon: short ranged, accurate, cheap, mid range ordinance
Medusa: Long ranged Demo cannon
Collossus: MEQ killing griffon without the accuracy bonuses
Hydra: Long range autocannon power
Manticore: Insane Missile launcher of doom
Deathstrike: absurdly powerful one shot tank. Will annhialate anything it hits.

Hellhound variants: (all now with hull multimelta and heavy flamer options)
Hellhound: not much change here
Devildog: blast template multimelta
Bane Wolf: flamer that will ruin the life of anything in power armour

+1 -AC

Those fancy Leman Russ variants like the Demolisher and Executioner are horrifically expensive. So, I just went the normal stuff but in my LGS, we play with a lot of terrain and I got a slight problem with Horde armies getting Cover Saves all the time since I already equipped my Infantry Squads with Lascannons and Autocannons, I thought I give the Eradicator a try.

I'll probably use the Executioner a bit, because I already have the Forgeworld model for it, maybe even the exterminator.

I plan on unleashing an executioner in larger battles. A fully loaded 5 plasma shot executioner runs close to the Land Raider price range so I wouldn't want to be bringing one out all too often.

i welcome back EXTERMINATOR and GRIFFON. ;D

both are deemed low threat than other versions of Russ, but for the cheap price they are amazingly effective.
