I agree, but disagreements always seem to happen
I'm beginning to think the collective noun for 40k fans is 'an argument'

For true shits and giggles, state that Russ beat Angron or vice versa

My only issue with the Russ/Magnus fight is why on earth a back breaker should be so devastating, when we have seen primarchs recover from far worse. Hell, as far as we know, primarchs don't even have conventional spinal chords... I'm not saying it wouldn't have incapacitated a primarchs long enough for their opponent to deliver a finishing blow, but the way Ahriman reacts you'd swear that Magnus would need a giant wheelchair for the rest of his life...

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

Didn't Sanguinius suffer that fate and actually recover from it during the Siege of Terra?

Actually, it's the opposite. Sanguinius was the one who gave Ka'Bandha the back breaker during the Siege of Terra. Payback for when Ka'Bandha broke his legs on Signus.

Yeah, just checked it. Ka Brandha broke Sanguinius' legs on Signum with a m not a s. But that's a very minor detail and you tend to be right about your fluff Chompy.

Personally, I would've liked to see Sanguinius do a spinning piledriver on Ka'bandha.
From Orbit.

That'd teach Ka'banda to have such a silly name.

Not to be pedantic, but it is Signus... Signus Prime to be exact. I have Fear to Tread open in front of me right now.

No worries, my skin is thick. Clearly Mr. Chompy is very intelligent. So much so that the jovial nature of my reply was lost on him. Must have been the laughing smily face that made my intentions ambiguous. He must have outsmarted himself (and me, obviously).

Horus sux lawlz.

Oh, I was very clear on your statement and the tone of it (as well as this one). I think you were the one who actually missed my point. How about making an argument to back up your claims about Horus... y'know, what people generally do when they try to get their point across in a debate.

Ooooookay... clearly there will be nothing approaching a sense of humor on your part. I might as well just leave this thread now and leave you to "debate" this monumentally important subject matter. Best of luck.
