Currently I have 6 Leman Russes 5 normal pattern and 1 Exterminator pattern. I want to field them in 3 squadrons I will convert one of the normal patterns to Vanquisher or Exterminator to run it with the current Exterminator. I will use the other 4 as is.
I really want to give a try to the Punisher variant at least proxy it a couple of games. But the high point cost does not raise too much good feelings about Punisher. 20 S5 BS3 shots with no AP for this price is abit high, you can buy 5 scout sentinels and still have left over points which will give you 15 S6 BS3 shots with AP6 and a better range.
Games Workshop also released the photos of the new sprues where we see the side sponsons have a new design which will give us easier interchangable weapons.

Leman Russ Punisher
Imperial Guard Leman Russ DemolisherThe Leman Russ Demolisher was devised for but one task: line breaking. It carries the short ranged but highly destructive demolisher cannon. Often thought of as a siege tank, the Leman Russ Demolisher has additional armour plating and is utterly devastating when fighting against enemy fortifications.
This box set contains one multi-part plastic Leman Russ Demolisher, and all of the components to allow you to assemble either a Punisher or Executioner variant instead. This 98-piece kit includes all of the sponson and hull-mounted weapon options available to Leman Russ tank variants, including: a lascannon, heavy bolters, heavy flamers, multi-meltas, and plasma cannons. Also included are a Tank Commander, smoke launchers, and a sheet of water slide transfers.
