They definitely need to update Angron's rules now.
Just because Angron beat him doesn't mean he should be more skilled. His number of attacks and re-rolls will mean he will beat Russ.
I was thinking a 6th wound and/or better save tbh.
I'd forgotten he only had 5 wounds! I'd agree on him getting a 6th.
I think Wolf fans should be happy with what they see so far. 6 strength 7 AP2 attacks at initiative 7 hitting on 3s is quite nasty!
I really need to get better at painting faces to do him justice!
Really nice so far. I don't like the WS 9 as it feels slightly too high, but I can ignore that as Russ was an amazing fighter, 6's across the board, including attacks, seems to fit well as he isn't exceptional anywhere, but is better than a decent portion of the primarchs. 2+, 4++ seems alright, but I wonder what else his armor will do for him, as I doubt it will be that simple. A standard power axe with paragon blade? I can guarantee that will change and I'm concerned how... He already gets a good amount of attacks at a high strength, initiative, and ap 2; It could easily edge over into dangerously exceptional areas if they add too much to that. I would hope that his combi-bolter is some kind of assault weapon as I would hate to see a combat based primarch that can't assault after shooting his gun lol. Crusader + Counter-Attack seems fine as it is, and we have quite literally no idea what Sire of the Space Wolfs is going to do.Over all, a very good primarch already, and hopefully it won't change too much. I feel that he is already really close to being better on a general basis than other primarchs of the same points level, and would really hate to see him go over the top. However, this is all speculation and we still don't know much about the wolve's rules in general either so I still hold out hope for the wolves to be awesome without being silly.
I have always wondered why Horus doesn't have BS6 and now someone like Russ got BS6.. Lel..
