You may as well ask what his purpose was for any Primarch.

But if you're asking what his purpose was for a psychotic berserker, then the real answer is that he didn't* intend for Angron to land on some planet where gladiators were hooked up with cerebral implants that made them batshit violent.

* Unless you subscribe to the idea that the Emperor intended for the Primarchs to be scattered to those specific planets... in which case, allow me to agree to disagree with you.

I think Angron was always meant to be the angry tough guy.

On a serious note, you simply cannot know. The Emperor chose the roles for his primarchs after he rediscovered them, so having found Angron as an angry, angry man he would have just resigned him to being the berzerker that he became.

Well we really dont know what angron could have become because of the implants that enhanced his beserk rage to ridiculous levels. However upon his landing he did rip the shit out of a load of eldar with his bare hands, and even before they became "world eaters" his legion were known for brutality and rage.

I always think that alot of the chaotic primarchs have there own loyal counterpart really, its an analogy that easily comes undone but a few examples in my opinion
angron russ
lorgar sanguinius
peturabo dorn
kurze corax

All the primarchs as we see in the first heretic were essentially first and foremost meant to be killers, leaders in battle that brought worlds under the swell of the emperors rule.

I dont think the emperor had a specific purpose for angron, though he does to me represent the emperor's merciless unforgiving rage.

kudos to lillian thorne for the awesome sig

To be fair, he was a baby, and thus (A) unarmed and (B) probably not educated on the proper way to defeat those trying to kill you.

Brutality? Sure. All Founding Legions were brutal. The conquest of Terra shows this, and even idealistic Legions like the Word Bearers confess with a straight face that they would raze populations, bomb planets to dust, and wipe out xenos as needed.

But rage? That's a different cookie altogether. There's a reason why Angron felt the need to fit his Astartes with the same chips, after all.

I dont really think that he had a specific purpose for anyone of them. But after they were scattered, they kind of chose their own purpose.

Pre-Primarchs:

Most ferocious Legions are the War Hounds (World Eaters) and the Blood Angels.

Primarchs Found:

The World Eaters become even more ferocious and bloodthirsty.
The Blood Angels ruthlessness and brutality is tempered by Sanguinius.
