I was looking at forge world today and saw a Leman Russ Turrent/Gun I really liked. I was planning on purchasing 3 new Lemon Russ Demolisher Kits when the come out on August 1st. I wanted to use these turrets to convert them all to standard Leman Russes.

The problem I am running into is that I dont know all what is required to purchase to make my LRBT look like it. The FW descriptions dont tell you exactly what it is you are buying or what it will make it look like.

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/edelweiss.htm I want my tank to look like this picture though I honestly cant tell what the back end of this tank looks like and I think thats the primary reason I want it because I dont like the current exaust systems.

The question is which of these do I need to buy to make my LRBT look like that one? What does each of these kits come with they do a horrible job describing what is in each kit.

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/acatalog/IMPERIAL_GUARD_TANKS.html is the link and look at the below items.
VANQUISHER STYGIES VIII CONVERSION KIT
VANQUISHER STYGIES VIII COMPLETE KIT

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Take a look here. The Mars Alpha hulls are different from the normal Russ. You can see it when they show the Ryza pattern next to the standard plastic kit.

Turrets are standalone items. You don't need any parts from the plastic kit to use a FW turret. The body-kits are, obviously, quite a bit more involved than the turret, as they replace the chassis of the tankc compeltely, including the Hull-Mounted weapon. You'd still need a turret and tracks/sponsons on top of that.

If you're planning on just getting Russes, not any variants, I'd order the complete kits as you end up getting the Russ cheaper that way.

The problem is that I still cant see what the back of the tank looks like. Does the exaust system look diffrent?

ALso, I wish FW or someone sold Plasma Cannon Turrets and I could just buy the entire kit from FW.

It does. It's a bit more stretched out and non-centred, with roughly the same amount of detail. You can see some of it here. And here's the opposite angle.

You mean like this, or perhaps this?

No I am refering to the simple Plasma cannon sponsons. The problem is if I buy a FW tank I dont think it comes with any side Plasma Sponsons. I dont even know where I can get some of them unless i buy the entire kit from a Demolisher.

Well at the moment you can't, so if you want Plasma Cannons, you'll have to get the Demolisher. So that'll be expensive given that you plan on replacing most of a new kit with a resin hull. The only other way would be to bitz order the plastic plasma cannons once they hits the 3rd party bitz sites, but expect them to be expensive and out of stock most of the time.

And you did say 'turrets'.

I'd say just wait for the new demolisher kit, it'll have lots of sponson bits in it.

Though the plasma cannons from the Space Marine Devastator plastic kit would be pretty good for converting, I made a Dreadnought arm out of one'a'them.
