Either Fulgrim in Fulgrim, or Horus Lupercal in Horus Rising. Dan Abnett set the standard of excellence for the Primarchs, I dont remember who but I read that one of the authors when writing for the Primarchs kept thinking, 'Is this as good as Abnett's Horus?'.

Fulgrim. I remember him being described as akin to a marble statue; his features carved, chisled and perfection incarnate. Also, I love how he is detailed as always wearing a cloak of some variation. Gold-thread, purple in homage to the Legion or a simple, cream colour.

Edit - Ninja` whore! Your firstborn shall pay the price.

Hehehe, we'll see Bobss. Least we agree on Fulgrim's description being excellent. You know I actually found a 1/5 review for Fulgrim earlier on Amazon.co.uk. Pure insanity, Fulgrim is one of the best HH novels.

Fulgrim, is indeed excellent. And what? I found a 5/5 review for Battle For the Abyss, also, a few days ago.
Insanity is all around us.

indeed. set a very high standard very early.

Either Fulgrim in Fulgrim, or Horus Lupercal in Horus Rising. Dan Abnett set the standard of excellence for the Primarchs, I dont remember who but I read that one of the authors when writing for the Primarchs kept thinking, 'Is this as good as Abnett's Horus?'.
i think that was ADB in one of his blogs. when he first sat down to pen the first heretic.

Sanguinius in Horus Rising, At least till they give him a better one D:
I didn't care for that one. Sanguinius has blonde hair, all his sources show blonde hair yet Abnett says he has black hair. Should have kept to the sources.

He's also now been desscribed as having black hair on Thousand Sons aswell, looks like theyve gone along with it disapointingly.

And yeah Horus was excellent. I did love Russ though, both his first description and then the secondary one when he is marching across the causeway. They captured his image perfectly and to me made him sound more intimidating than Angron

You make it sound as if that's a major thing that the HH novels have changed from what is known- Torgaddon as a loyalist, Tarvtz as just a Captain etc

Magnus, the copper skinned cyclopian giant. I did so enjoy that book.
The description of angron in that short story where he gives kharn some hammer is indeed a bit disturbing. He is a seriously scary dude.
