russ is the only primarch that could best the emporor and angorncho gladiator dude.
but in a fight i think angorn would just lose control and russ would just take him out no bother on him

The cau empirefor the greater cud.
95% of teens would cry if they saw the Jonas Brothers at the top of a skyscraper about to jump. Copy and paste this if you are part of the 5% that would yell "DO A FLIP!!!"

I'm going to have to go with Russ.

Although both primarchs were known for their ferocity in battle, Leman was more than just a mindless blood-lusting killer. Along with ferocity, Russ possessed a wolf's cunning and creativity where as Angron was sheer mindless brutality. The fight would most likely appear to be in Angron's favour (Russ doing a lot of keeping out of the mad man's grasp) but in the end my money would be on Leman coming out on top.

As to the LEJ vs. Russ fight: not very hard to sucker punch a guy roaring with laughter at the absurdity of two primarchs fighting.

I'd have to vote for Angron. Pre-Daemonhood, he WAS a highly-skilled gladiator; He'd probably play with Russ for awhile, then finish him when Horus gave the "thumb's down" sign . I also imagine Angron having an advantage as he'd probably know all sorts of underhanded fighting styles, while Russ would try to be more honorable...

Granted, half the fun in watching Russ get whomped is what he did to my beloved Thousand Sons...

After a few Scooby Snacks Russ would be like Arthur to the Black Knight in the Holy Grail. He'd let Angron go ape sh*t and then take him apart limb by limb. Russ would leave Angron a bloody friggin' mess. I know Angron is the Galaxy's premier gladiator but Russ is too cunning, not to mention equally ferocious. Russ bested the Big "E" for Christ's sake!

My vote: Russ... handily.

After leaving Angron with many "flesh wounds" Russ would bring over a bowl right next to Angron's limbless body and eat some Kibble n' Bits right in his face and then mark Angron as his territory by lifting his leg and defecating on Angron's bloody stump of a body.

It's like Raider's of the Lost Ark when Indiana Jones shoots that flashy swordsman. Who cares if you're tough? Brains matched with brawn would win that fight, especially between two Primarchs.

I can feel the hate in here... you Chaos guys sure can hold a grudge (lol).

Firstly I's like to note that Russ is not realy to blame for Magnus turning to chaos; if you read closely, it very clearly states that the Emperor sent Russ to bring Magnus back to the palace on Terra, and Russ went out to do exactly that.

It was Horus, who then lied to Russ, and ordered him to kill Magnus. (Sinse Horus was not only the Warmaster, but also a freind of Russ at the time, its not a hard choice).

Russ was being dutiful and trying to do what was right. Magnus was agter all, using illegal sorcery.

As far as the fight...

Angron has nothing on Russ. Russ bested the Emperor in 2 of the 3 tests and their fight was a draw. His heroic deeds in the crusade merit the Leman Russ battle tank being named after him. Angron got all his deamon power and "ascended" so he could what, hide in his deamon realm in the eye of terror? scary...

Anyone here ever read the "Do the Daemon Primarchs ever Hang out?" thread on Warseer? I picture it kind of like the first few chapters.

(Name of Speaker eludes me right now, either Horus or Ezekyle)"And what have you done since the Heresy?"

Angron:"Well, I failed to ravage a small Hive World"

Mortarion: "Not helping Ang, not helping."

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “The current system of servitude is barbaric and inadequate for today's generation. We appeal to the leaders of both the Imperium and the Coalition of Hateful Assholes and Organised Sin to seek to change this for the betterment of all its citizens”

Lorgar: “Guess there was one plot thread we forgot to erase ...” Mortarion nods in agreement, while Ahriman looks on suspiciously.

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “We feel trapped, we feel oppressed. And we urge our governments to release us from these metal boxes-”

Lorgar: “Oh shi-”

Firraveus Carron: Leaping to his feet. “METAL BOXES?!?METAL BOXES!!!THEY RIDE IN METAL BOXES!!!”

-Labor Unions

All credit goes to Lastie on Warseer, for writing Primarchs (available in a 647 page Microsoft Word document)

I'd have to say Leman. They are both ferocious and brutal, Angron more so, but Leman has cunning and intelligence that is far superior to Angron.

Any which way: Russ cause even though angron may be better physically it does not matter if you do not fight with your brain then you will lose, cunning will beat strength any day, and angron being a gladiator i think would not have any effect because since he would have been so far superior to the normal humans in the ring he would not have gained an advantage in fact his skill is probably less because of it.
