You are of course right.

I should have been more clear in what I said. When you say 'British accent' you are referring to the stereotypical 'English accent'. Where as I don't believe there is a universal American accent which is recognised as the 'American accent' compared to the 'English accent'.

There is, at least to us, but many Americans consider it to be a lack of a accent. Its odd, but yeah.

I think the Lion is like a feudal knight then he should get a accent like French, Occitan or Catalan...

And I really see Konrad like Batman voice.

Ooo, linguistic tiems.

Given that Primarchs seemed to learn languages fairly quickly and in a way that resembles first language aquisition, I think I can assume they wouldn't have a problem with accents as well. So, if they would use one, it would have some other motive.

For example, I can imagine Horus incorporating a (slighter) accent when giving a speech to a particular group to show.

On the other hand, I figure that Fulgrim would aim for having the equivalent of an recieved pronounciation in High Gothic.

The Primarchs that had a grudge with the Emperor/close ties to their planet might maintain their accent as a sort of demonstration.

So: Guilliman, Dorn, Horus, Sanguinius, Magnus, Lorgar, Perturabo and Fulgrim would be fairly likely to have the equivalent of RP in High Gothic, with Horus occassionally converging to the populace of a planet.

Mortarion, Angron, Konrad Curze, Jagathai Khan and Leman Russ would probably speak with a noticably different accent, which might get more pronounced when speaking with the Emperor in Mortarion's, Konrad's or Angron's cases.

Alpharius and Lion would probably be switching accents depending on what they think would benefit them most ATM.

Everyone else just would just speak in British accents to me, purely because i am.
I think Russ would have a mostly Scandanavian accent, with a bit of Scottish lilt.

I don't really Picture Angron with an accent. (Talking about him, because he's my Lord and Saviour )

I guess I have him pictured as having a Sort of;

SHKARRRRCHHAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRAAAAAAAAARGH; Style of Speech.

But if I had to class that as an accent. I Guess it's pretty much a brummy one.

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.
