Default Primarch Accents

Hey all, me and some locals at my flgs got talking about Russ and the kind of things he would say. It made mee ralise a Scottish accent would fit him perfectly I just can't get the image of Russ standing witha kilt on yelling "COME HERE YA WE B******s"

So what accents do you think the other primarchs would have?

I see Russ as having a more subtle scottish accent.

The rest of them more hard to go with, Vulkan with a deep sort of carribean accent, like the guy who plays Kingsley in the Harry Potter films.

Everyone else just would just speak in British accents to me, purely because i am.

Most of them I'd imagine having pretty straightforward english accents though there are a few that would probably sound a bit different.

For Vulkan I hear a deep melodious voice, kinda like Angel of Blood descibed.

For Russ, he'd probably sound like an slightly annoyed Scotsman. Or maybe something completely different like arnold schwarzenegger.

For the Khan, he'd maybe speak with a middle-eastern sounding accent.

For Ferrus Manus, I for some reason picture him speaking with a bit of cockney accent.

For Night Haunter I'd imagine a British version of Batman's speaking style from The Dark Knight. Though I have to admit that I did find it quite annoying when watching that film. I kept hoping that someone would offer him a Strepsil but it never happened.

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.

Hahahahaha images of a conversation with a cockney Ferrus. But nah, Ferrus has to have a really deep gravely voice for me.

Night haunter, hmmm not a Christian Bale accent, would be a very subdued and quiet accent, trying to think of an example.

Rogal Dorn in my head is Lance Henriksen

Mortarion, Sean Pertwee
