There's an interesting chapter in Scars where Fulgrim, Sang, the Khan, and Mortarion are sitting around after the parade on Ullanor.



Trying to pick one eventually comes down to a matter of personal preference, as the only definitive fight we've seen so far is Ferrus v a demon boosted Fulgrim, which skewed the result somewhat.

If I had to pick it'd have to come from primarchs that we've seen fight each other so far. Russ, the Khan and Fulgrim for me. Don't know how anybody could pick Horus, we've seen next to nothing of him in combat at all, never mind against another primarchs.

EDIT. Gonna have to add Curze. He's faced 4 of his brothers in combat, two of them at the same time, and walked away. He also nearly killed Dorn. He definitely needs to be considered a serious contender.

I'm not sure how much the demon does for the Primarch. Mortarion was basically having his ass handed to him by Kaldor Draigo. I actually go as far as thinking it might be a hindrance not a boost in a fight.

Shouldn't be too late to start it.

Don't mean to be rude, but that ridiculous piece of fanboy fluff has no place in a discussion on the Horus Heresy. If you were to go by that Draigo would kick a normal primarchs ass easily.

Huh? I can't change what's in the Grey Knights-codex.

Is this an attack on me or not? I'm a bit unsure now.

Yes you can. You ignore it. Like the Dawn of War novels.

And that bit about how everybody wants to be cat/ultramarine. It would be the equivalent of, I don't know, a Liverpool supporter wishing they were an Everton fan because they had like Messi, or something. It's tripe, and bollocks. And written by the same person; whether or not its Mat Ward, but it was okayed by him as the Editor in Chief of book, which is why he gets the stick, and deservedly so.

I personally just ignore it, its simply idiotic, and its not like its the first or last piece of idiocy written.
There is no way Draigo is equal to over 100 grey knights in terminator armour.

Wow here I really hit a mine. I tend to see it as Grey knight-bragging, as I tend to interpret that a codex (especially the ones written by MW) as how the things in question regards themselves.

Interesting to see how the other MW-haters deals with it.

And even more interesting to watch what a berserk-button Kaldor Draigsue is.

Not sure I'd list Horus. The Warmaster didn't exactly do a great job killing the guy possessed by that Nurgle daemon who wounded him with the anathame.

Also, the variations in the spelling of "Sanguinius" are very amusing.

Angron FTW.

I just could not let this go. Fulgrim is as much of a "Bad Boy" as Micheal Jackson was in the video "Beat it".
