Sorry. MCAT brain. Everything is literal to me right now.

We need to place bets on which Primarch will be last. I'm going with either the Khan or Alpharius/Omergan.

I bet last will be the Emperor himself

You're right!

Hopefully they'll just use a ball of burning magnesium to represent the Emperor. When you unbox The Emperor you'll have holes burnt into your retina from looking at him.

Actually I think Dorn will be the last one, as he didn't have any real showtime in the Heresy until the Siege. But after Russ I bet Magnus is coming.

2 quibbles:
1) The angle on his head seems a little weird.
2) why is he holding Abaddon's sword drach'nyen?

You know, looking at the model, what he needs isn't a beard - he's never had one. What he needs is his giant mane of glorious golden locks and his fabulous top knot! Wtf, FW?

EDIT: All of the Internet cookies to the first person to GS the model with a proper head of hair. This shit is pathetic. If there were going to go fucking buckwild with any Primarchs hair, it needed to be Russ.

We do have a primarch that has facial hair: Jaghatai Khan. Everyone just forgets about him (something even his first feature HH book pokes fun at in a tongue in cheek sort of way).

I'm going to have to agree with gen.ahab in that Russ should not have a beard (mostly since he never has had one in lore). Although, his hair could be a lot thicker/mane-like with braids, his top knot, and some thick side burns running down his jawline/braids at the temples.

If any primarchs were to have facial hair (besides the poor forgotten Khan) I would have to go with Ferrus Manus with a short, rough beard. What little we know about him seems to lead to a very 'rough' personality. I could see Fulgrim sporting an insanely intricately styled, close cropped beard for fun at times much like the guy from the Hunger Games movies. I can also picture Angron with a rough, blood and spittle-spattered goatee. Corax, I could see sporting a tight soul patch.

I can't picture Dorn with facial hair for some reason.

You have to remember also that the primarchs are (for 'immortal' beings) still very much children in a sense. So having them appear somewhat young isn't too far off the mark.
