Default (SW)Russ vs (WE)Angron

I really dont know but I here Sang, Angron, and Russ are the best fighters. So I was thinking the SWs and WEs are both like hounds of war that must be kept on leashes. So with that said...

(1) SWs Legion vs WEs Legion in a straight up Planetary battle.
(2) Russ fights Angron 1on1.

I would go with Russ, if only seeing as increasing ammounts of fluff point towards Russ truly being created with the intention of being the Anti Primarch.

In his battle with Magnus, he demonstrated powerful blank/black pariah like abilities, and seeing as he is stated as one of the few primarchs to have beat down Horus in combat, as well as take his battle with Lion as a joke. I would say Russ would take this match if only for his uncanny ability to feed off of other primarchs powers and strengths and empower himself with them.

Keep in mind alot of this is all speculation just on what ive read from dwarf articles, prospero, etc.

1. Space Wolves- They are tactful, the way they fight enemies is like the way animals hunt in packs.
2. Angron. His upbringing probably destroying much useful traits in him. But he was "Death Incarnate" as Corax would put it.

1: The Wolves. In battle they are pure hatred, but with a mind to control it.

2: I doubt either one of them would survive.

1. Got to go with the Wolves on this one. They have viciousness and skill in combat to match the WE but they fight more cleverly than the WE do.

2. I don't know about this one but I'd go with Angron. They'll probably fight for a while and be a match for each other, Russ will start laughing again because he realises it's pointless and Angron, unlike the Lion who merely sucker punched him, will REALLY take acception to being laughed at and sucker chainaxe him.

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.

Hmmm. I always thought WEs was one of the scariest Legions, during the whole Terra battle it was the World Eaters (with Kharn) that made it furthest into the fortress of the Emperor. I figure they would have a vote or 2 base on pure feats of what that Legion has accomplish through strength alone.

Does anyone else think its funny how the WEs tatics leave them badly mauled but they manage to have a huge supply of warriors to throw at the next battle? Its like a never ending Recruitment. "Want to kill your boss? Angry at your parents? Like it better when a woman is on that time of the month? Then Angrons WEs are the legion for you!"

At Warlock,
Well, think of it this way. Chances are you will hear a WE long before you see him and if you can get away you are good. You won't hear a SW battle cry till it is far to late to do anything about it and you can never get away from them. They will follow you till the end of the earth.

I also wonder if Grey Hunters cover eachother in they're piss just incase they get seperated, and they can sniff their team down.

If they did they would smell like the WE. What would be the point?

They're probably using the same make-a-marine-in-a-month technique the Blood Ravens use.

Hmmm... do Space Wolves smell like wet dog after a rainstorm?
