having just read Horus Rising I feel that I am now on intimate terms with the Primarchs.
I have seen a fair number of threads asking about what Primarch stats would have been or what they might be in future codex's and such.
For the most part I see a lot of 'OMG Primarch are teh pwn! they would beat down whole armies!!1!!1! and cost 5 million points FTW'
However after actually getting to read about Primarch in combat and have them described by people who worked and lived with them I have a different feeling on the matter.
There is no doubt that they were great men, even based against the standards of the super human Space Marines, however I don't think they would even quite be the equivalent to the Night Bringer in terms of fakeness.
For the most part my guess is that their stat line would look something like this:
*Dependant on gear
Just as a basis for a stat line before nifty Primarch gear which would give them invulnerable saves, increased
Strength/Toughness and cool special rules.
I would also venture to guess that they would have some sort of 'Daemonic Rune' type thing that made them immune to the effects of instant death.
What does everyone think? Particularly those who have read the novel, am I close to the mark or way off base?
Please don't get this thread locked...
