HI guys,

I think my conversion of Russ is complete but I just need to add a tankard and paint!

Let me know what my fellow wolf brothers think:

That Mjol, is one of the finest visualisations of Russ I've yet seen ;), some very nice work brother, love it :lol:

Whats the chances of getting a shot with a standard marine next to him for a size comparison? :D
"Listen closely Brothers, for my life's breath is all but spent. There shall come a time far from now when our Chapter itself is dying, even as I am now dying, and our foes shall gather to destroy us. Then my children, I shall listen for your call in whatever realm of death holds me, and come I shall, no matter what the laws of life and death forbid. At the end I will be there. For the final battle. For the Wolftime."

"Yes,you are a whelp..And like many whelps,occasionally you lose your way,and make a mistake. When that happens,a good cuff around the ears should help set you straight. The thing is,after the first time..generally we lose patience and bite the throat till you realize you made a mistake,or well..They make another one like you and hope that this one comes out better."

I was thinking of creating Russ. however my idea is like the devotional fountain in cities of death. In that instance he would be equipped with the spear of Russ as he only carried it at ceremonis. He wold be surrounded by Fenrisian wolves and his wolf lords. You have now iven me the inspiration I needed to start this project

Dude I am green with envy and now I have the odd burning sensation to bust out a large amount of green stuff and spend days locked in my room to make our glorius primarch. btw did you briad those? that must have been a delicate and frustrating process. Superb job brother now you get in that forge and get him nice and purtty so that he can properly smash thousands heretics heads in.

Do you reckon that Russ would be equipped with terminator armor or power armor? I'm just wondering as it would be cool to create a statue of Russ and use it as sacred ground in cities of death

Very ornate power armor (ie, artificer armor like you cant imagine). I'm not sure if any primarchs used "terminator armor" as such (maybe Ferrus Manus?), as they had the best plate that could have been created, and it was built even bigger than a suit of termie armor (these guys stood about twice the size of a standard marine). As far as modeling goes, it might not hurt to use some bits from a termie sprue to give the primarch some height. If you want to get an idea of how a primarch's armor looks fully painted up, try and find yourself the white dwarf from last year's chicago golden daemon. There actually was a group of guys who made up a bunch of the primarchs (khan, fulgrim, ferrous, alpharius, and a few more) and the Fulgrim actually took the show.

As far as I know only Horus wore Terminator Armor though Dorn may also have done so, but Terminator Armor far more advanced than what normal marines clank about in.

I can't seem to see our blessed Russ in Terminator armor, he would prefer the faster power armor...plus I'm sure his armor would be the equal to termie armor at least.
For Russ and the All Father!!!

I had a feeling it would be power armour. Hmm.... This is going to take modelling skill I do not currently posess. Oh well, I'm not buying any more wolves until the new codex because I just know the models I put together will become obsolete so I can work on Russ. As it is a statue though I don't need to worry about height too much.
