Default Leman Russ

I don't know if this is the right section but...

Since there is a Leman Russ Primarch Model, along with his two wolves, does that mean there were special rules for him at one time? Or is it just a random model that was made?

Thanks.

As far as I know, I don't think there are any special rules for him. Primarchs certainly don't belong in the 40k scale. Much the same with C'tan and other big nasty things.

Ok, was there any reason the model was made then?

It's hardly what I'd call a deserving model of Leman Russ, much like all the other Primarchs that have been made into actual models since. That's why they stopped making them, because they were crap.

Perhaps to give (or attempt to) a face to a name.

The Leman Russ model was rogue trader-era and terribly bad. He looks like he is doing the hokey pokey and faintly marine-like. That is because he was created as Sergeant Russ, a basic character. As the fluff compendium were released and the game progressed, he grew into the primarch of the SW. He then became this super-human myth after he was just supposed to be the progenitor leader.
So, the model is terrible and looks like a very very shitty Ragnar Blackmane. It was never meant to be the russ we know and love.
There HAD to be some type of rules for him, but nothing like what you'd want or think.

-Khaine-

NOTE: You might be able to Google him or see him in bits order catalogues or GWs archaic model online store section.
