In the Leman Russ book, Leman Russ admitted that he got beat by the lion. I don't want this to turn into a pissing contest. If you are being totally fair, you'd have to say Russ and the Lion are completely evenly matched. They fought for weeks completely even matched and then the sucker punched ended it. I wish writers would take their ego's out of the writing. and I'm a world eaters player so 'I' am not biased here.

Wasn't there another occasion where there was some sort of war game exercise and the Space Wolves got soundly beaten by the Dark Angels, even though duel between Russ and the Lion ended in a tie?

Biased writing, it was a book about the space wolves, also the fight didnt last weeks, thats imperial "legend" not fact, primarchs leman russ shows what ACTUALLY happened, yes Russ got beat, soundly, but Lion didnt take the killing blow so it degenerated into a brawl, which Russ still didnt win, THEN the "sucker punch" happened.

The Irony of the whole thing is the Lion was trying to teach Russ the EXACT thing that Russ attacked Angron over, that he could be more than "just" a killer, guess its at least consistent that Russ is a hypocrite of the highest order.

It did last weeks, unless you can quote a source that says otherwise. Yeah Leman Russ shows what actually happened, hence the biased writing lol, rather than actual lore. Thats exactly what I'm talking about. I never said Russ won, I'm saying the Lion didn't. The Lion wasn't trying to teach him anything, it had nothing to do with the Angron situation. Again now its you that is just making up gak because you don't like Russ. Again this is what I'm talking about.

I wish I could give some sort of dakka dakka gold for this comment. It is just so true on so many levels that I could spend days giving examples of why it is true.

I don't hate Russ, although I will say that the whole Prospero thing left me with a sour taste in my mouth and made me seriously question the content of his character. But even for people who love Russ and the Space Wolves, you cannot deny that they are absolutely MASSIVE hypocrites, in addition to being extremely arrogant.

Hypocritical yes, though I have no sympathy whatsoever for Magnus, but anyways I'm talking about the fight between Russ and the Lion.

Its didnt last weeks

Ref: Primarchs Leman Russ.

There you go.

What you have is the Index Astartes fluff, fluff written from the perspective of someone 10k years after the events in question and is basically a legend, when the same index astartes states that Russ chopped the head off a warlord titan we know its not quite true, its exagerated, something the Wolves are well known for doing.

What EXACTLY are you asking me to quote, because if its "the fight lasted weeks" then the book shows it did not VERY VERY clearly, in fact I cant remember a reference to it lasting weeks, the index astartes article says days, and even that was wrong.

Exactly, unbelievably bias lol. They fought for weeks or days they would both have to be handling each other for that length of time and then the suckerpunch happened to end it. The writer is so biased it isn't funny. If he wrote that about Angron then okay but the Lion, pure fantasy. The lore is the lore and its stated that the fight was won on a suckerpunch and now he's saying he beat him bloody and can do it again. It takes some delusion not to see the bias there.

The only fantasy here is your perception of Bias, this was a space wolf book about space wolves and showed them in both a positive and negative light, yes Russ lost to the Lion, but Lion has been shown to be a top tier CC primarch for quite some time now, this should not be a surprise.

As you think its Bias, please explain EXACTLY why you think its bias, as you are coming across as a wolf fanboy that is upset that Russ got beat.... again.

The book also points out Russ's overconfidence. Pg 42, "I'll draw the fool into a trap..." in which he expected to defeat the Lion quickly.

Also, the beat me bloody part is where he points out the fight was over quickly. Not days or weeks.

You are the one emotionally invested in fiction. I'm not a Space Wolves fanboy at all, Russ crawled away from Angron on his hands and knees and that was a good day for me. You are obviously just as biased as the author. I explained exactly why its biased but a biased person isn't going to be swayed by logic. I don't care about Russ I care about the lore and accurate writing. And I'm not anti-Lion, I loved decent of angels and fallen angels.

You are quoting a book on which we are debating the biased nature of the book, quoting it is irrelevant unless you quote things that show that its not biased.

You are not using logic Delvarus, you are making sweeping statements with no substance, you claim the author is biased and refuse to accept examples that show that the story is infact consistent with the old one, just with more detail is its not a legendary look back but actually the event itself as it happened.




You are quoting a book on which we are debating the biased nature of the book, quoting it is irrelevant unless you quote things that show that its not biased.


And this is a perfect example of what im talking about, you claim that the author is biased but provide no proof or anything really to support your statement, I have asked you twice now to explain EXACTLY why you think they are biased, so explain.

Show me where it says in the lore that Russ got beat and that the Lion could do it again. You actually haven't given any evidence other than the weeks/days thing. I gave you the only examples such as 'lore' where the two Primarchs were evenly matched until the suckerpunch. Where are the sweeping statements? Plenty of substance you just choose to ignore it and make up stuff like the Lion wanted to teach Russ a lesson like in the case of Angron. The author showed more detail and that's that, you are just completely ignoring the actual lore. You are emotional, to the point of making stuff up so your biased point of view is somehow true.

Anyways, the book shows that Russ got beat and the Lion could do it again. The book is an example, and you are ignoring said example why exactly?

I'm not ignoring it, its now lore. If you read the title of the thread you'd realise its about 'the' book, being 'biased'.

And the lore before was biased by being created by some imperial servant some tens of thousands of years down the line as a legend. The specifics of the book clarify things, and shows things did not occur specifically as you mentioned.

The bias would be thinking that every primarch is somehow equal to each other, which the Imperials of the future would think. The legends won't say that Russ was a hypocrite, or that Lion had issues trusting people and socializing. They'll mention that they were the greatest heroes of the Imperium ind that they could do groundbreaking feats of power that no mortal man could hope to accomplish in their lifetime.

To think otherwise is to insult the legacy of the Emperor and his own personal sons, many of which gave their lives over to fight against evil. It would be quite heretical as well to many scholars of the Imperium, well known for altering data or changing words to fit their own narrative rather then any sort of factual nature.

And you claim 'not biased' while ignoring lore. I'm ignoring the context of the book because its hard to debate whether the book itself is biased if you are using the book for the context. Give me some context other than the 'actual' book lol Plus you make stuff up.

"You do not have to play to this reputation brother, you can drop the pretense at anytime you choose" Lion El'Johnson

"all I see is delusion brother, so much energy so poorly directed" Lion

"you treat all as a game, that is why malcador sent for me, malcador cannot trust you, no one can trust you, your legion is a rabble that would brawl among themselves if you were not there to smack their heads together" Lion

"If only they were more like yours" Russ

"yes!, Yes is that so hard to imagine"

Hmmmm sounds very familiar, almost like what Russ said to Angron, so much for making stuff up eh, seems like Lion was trying to teach Russ a similar lesson to the one that Russ was trying to teach Angron.

Anyways, the book shows that Russ got beat and the Lion could do it again. The book is an example, and you are ignoring said example why exactly?


Thats my question too, he claims bias... cos bias!!! while utterly ignoring context.


And you claim 'not biased' while ignoring lore. I'm ignoring the context of the book because its hard to debate whether the book itself is biased if you are using the book for the context. Give me some context other than the 'actual' book lol Plus you make stuff up.


Me Ignoring lore hahahahhahahhahahahahh, your funny, your the one dismissing a whole book because you think its "biased", so far your entire argument basically resolves around "nuh uh, you are", you see both I and Zebio have told you why one story is incosistent with the other, but you are choosing to Ignore it, so much for "following the lore"

"If only they were more like yours" Russ

"yes!, Yes is that so hard to imagine"

Hmmmm sounds very familiar, almost like what Russ said to Angron, so much for making stuff up eh, seems like Lion was trying to teach Russ a similar lesson to the one that Russ was trying to teach Angron.

The bias would be thinking that every primarch is somehow equal to each other, which the Imperials of the future would think. The legends won't say that Russ was a hypocrite, or that Lion had issues trusting people and socializing. They'll mention that they were the greatest heroes of the Imperium ind that they could do groundbreaking feats of power that no mortal man could hope to accomplish in their lifetime.

To think otherwise is to insult the legacy of the Emperor and his own personal sons, many of which gave their lives over to fight against evil. It would be quite heretical as well to many scholars of the Imperium, well known for altering data or changing words to fit their own narrative rather then any sort of factual nature.



What are you on about lol

Well he may have been told to write that nonsense. Plus how do you know he's not a bigger DA fan, could be possible.

I need to reread the book, but if Russ says “he beat me bloody and could do it again” couldn’t it just be Russ’s opinion? Or does it state outside of dialogue that Russ got the beating of his life?

Don't worry, I'm just making gak up.

Yeah he learned a lesson, as he laughed at his stupidity, the old lore even alludes to that but the Lion didn't intend to teach him a lesson, he was just defending himself.
