The Leman Russ Battle Tank stands as the backbone of the Imperial Guard, leading the charge in countless armored formations and crushing any foes that withstand its devastating firepower. This versatile and reliable tank is a common sight among Astra Militarum regiments throughout the galaxy, symbolizing the indomitable might of the Imperium.
This multipart plastic kit offers the opportunity to assemble a Leman Russ Battle Tank, a highly adaptable armored vehicle with a multitude of variants. With a choice of seven potent turret weapons including the battle cannon, demolisher battle cannon, eradicator nova cannon, executioner plasma cannon, exterminator autocannon, punisher gatling cannon, or vanquisher battle cannon, you can tailor your Leman Russ to excel at annihilating tanks, decimating alien swarms, or fulfilling any tactical role in between. Additionally, the tank features a hull-mounted secondary weapon such as a lascannon, heavy bolter, or heavy flamer, and the option to equip two sponson-mounted guns, choosing from a pair of heavy bolters, heavy flamers, multi-meltas, or plasma cannons.
In addition to its formidable armaments, the kit provides various cosmetic options, including a searchlight, handles, and the choice between an exposed crewman or a closed hatch. Alternatively, you can assemble a Tank Commander, an expert officer of the Astra Militarum who leads with tactical prowess from the confines of a Leman Russ.
