Fulgrim the Primarch Slayer

Here is my Fulgrim model. I used the True/Art Scale Marine method to put him together. He stands a little over a head taller than a regular marine. As I mentioned in my last post, Fulgrim took down 2 other Primarchs. First to fight was his brother Ferrus Manus. Here is a close up of Devlin's Ferrus Manus. Later I will be painting the Rhino door he is standing on in my colors!
Devlin had been listening to me talk for 3 months about how I was going to kill Ferrus. He then gamely lined up Ferrus and his Terminators directly across from the Land Raider holding Fulgrim and his Terminators. As I had the first turn, I jumped Fulgrim out and moved forward. I couldn't resist trying to Pavane/Lash Ferrus out from his guard (I'm a Chaos player! What else would the evil villain do?), but Ferrus' pet Librarian shut that down. So we went 2 rounds. In the first round we dealt each other 2 wounds, and my Termies caused another. Then Ferrus failed an armor save for losing combat and being Fearless! In round 2 Fulgrim dealt 3 wounds to Ferrus and he failed his last save. I ran around slapping high fives and yelling, "Primarch DOWN!" Here is Ferrus' death scene.
Next up was Sanguinius. Willie had a nice model here using various pieces including Sigvald from the fantasy side! Me and Willie are old combatants and good friends, and Willie was more than game enough to jump his Primarch forward and do battle with me.
Here is Sanguinius calling out Fulgrim. Sanguinius charged and combat was quick and deadly.
Willie being Willie, smugly announced that Sanguinius struck at Initiative 7 with Furious Charge. I replied that Fulgrim was Initiative 7 standing. Willie gave me his "evil eye". He then announced that he had 7 attacks on the charge. I replied that Fulgrim had 7 attacks standing. Willie was none too amused and I think the word, "Cheater" escaped his lips. I let Willie roll first and he hit and wounded Fulgrim 5 times. I needed 3 4+ invulve saves to live and promptly failed 4 of them. Willie was much happier now. Then I rolled. I only hit 3 times. Then I wounded him twice. But Primarchs get to reroll failed wound rolls, and on the reroll a six came up! A six from Fulgrim causes Instant Death, and his sword negates Eternal Warrior! Fulgrim took down his second Primarch with a single swing, giving up his life to do so! I gave Willie a high five, and then ran around the room, taunting the other players!

Come back tomorrow to see more of the Primarchs!


  1. Very nice- like the historical reenactment bit for the first Primarch slaying.

  2. It was nice! Devlin was man enough to allow us to go at it! We had been talking about fighting it out for months, and he could have easily hid Ferrus. I was lucky that the Iron Warriors were set up near me, as we weren't allowed to attack more than one player away. Originally they were supposed to deploy way down the table!
