..take a lascannon shot to the chest?
..or a railgun shot.
..and still live?
Could Leman Russ take out a carnifex (close combat carnifex of course), with his bare hands? Or maybe a hive tyrant.
Leman Russ and Chuck Norris appear to show striking similarities.
well. if he's a character in a story then i don't see why not? i mean, he was one of the greatest primachs ever (IMO). And amazing stuff does happen in stories.
Well, Leman Russ is a guy that drank the cellars dry in what is essentially a viking castle and then ate something bigger than a cow. He also survived a powerfist to the face and other completely ridiculous stuff. I think he could take most forms of abuse without dying.
Carnis and Tyrants are also plenty feasible since we know his winged brother could take on a blood thirster and crack it's back over his knee, although they didn't exist in the 40k universe at the same time as Russ.

Remember, his muscles weren't actually that important.. He was a primarch, which meant he was like a mini version of the Emperor. His power came from the warp, not just his physical muscles and bones.. He could just suck warp energy into his body to make him super strong/invulnerable/disease resistant/immune to alcohol poisoning etc. He may not have been aware of his super-psychic status, but it was there.
It wasn't quite Dragonball Z, but it was pretty close.
Gentlemen. Remember this.
He was a Viking. The HEAD viking. That's already putting him in an Awesomeness level far above the average. The fact that he was a super-soldier, and was raised by wolves accentuates things. He also lived on top of a giant phallic-shaped ("The Fang". Sure. There's GOT to be something freudian there.) tooth. That's a whole new order of magnitude of awesome.
So yes, I would conclude by saying that Leman Russ would be fully capable of deflecting lascannon bolts through vigorous head-butting motions. If an Orc Boss can RIDE a carnifex, then The 'Russ certainly can.
His power didn't come from the Emperor, it came from Chaos! He's a mini version of all the chaos gods, just like his brother primarchs!
Don't believe all the Imperial Propaganda thats out there - he is evil and his primarchs are the fruit of his evilness!
Thats why they are so strong and tough, like the milky bar kid.
I can't say I've seen it all but I live for the things that keep me hollow.
an example of Leman Russ strength? He picked up Magnus the Red and broke his back with or over his head (no citation for this so please confirm). Thats pretty baller, also he has gotten hit (by the Emperor) in the face with a powerfist after it became clear he wasn't going to fall and then the Lion stabbed Russ in the back after he was unable to beat him in battle...
the lion only struck him over the head when he was looking the other way, arrogant swine he is!!
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.

He broke Magnus' back over his knee. Basically tore him in half. Surving a powefist from the Emperor well.... thats just toughan example of Leman Russ strength? He picked up Magnus the Red and broke his back with or over his head (no citation for this so please confirm).
