Hey everyone, does anyone have any info on if leman russ is actually still alive and fighting in the eye of terror?
From what I gather there is little to no fluff regarding Russes fate after he left, just speculation ie that hes fighting in the eye of terror.
Hive Fleet Fuzzy Bunny: Lots and lots of points of Nids (4000pts+)
The Chapter of the Damned: 5500pts of Dark Angels
The Children of Fulgrim: 5-6000pts of Emperors Children
The Kabal of the Bloodied Claw: 2000pts of Dark Eldar
yeah, Russ's fate is uncertain at best. In the old codex they hinted that he was still alive, but in the current one, no information at all. I personally think Russ is leading the 13th company against Magnus the Red, Russ's biggest enemy in the traitors. In a novel, they mentioned he might be going after this thing called, "The Tree of Life", whose fruit might actually be able to heal the Emperor.
The Wolves conduct occasional Great Hunts, trying to find Leman Russ. These searches result in nothing, but the true Space Wolf never believes that he is dead and continues to fight in his name, for his honor.
Applaud, my friend, the Comedy is finished.

It's unknown but I think he is. I think one day all the Primarches will return in one form or another.

I don't know if he is alive or not. The space wolves did find his armour during a great hunt. Can't figure out why he would take it off if he was still alive though. (unless he is running about the eye of terror naked) Thousand Sons was good though it made me think about Russ in a whole new light. I don't think he is with the thirteenth company though as in the last Ragnar Blackmane book the ones they encounter don't seem to know about what happened with Russ.
On the tree of life, I can only speculate. But if I had to make a guess, I would think it would be in the area of the warp the Eldar gods used to live in the Warp. My reason, in Eldar myth, Isha is the god of life, fertility and growth. Even now she whispers the cure to Nurgles plague to mortals. So I think the Tree would be wherever she used to live before the Fall. Another possibility is that it is in the Black Library. Cegorach keeps all knowledge of Chaos hidden here, and if there is a cure to all of Nurgle's afflictments (possibly including the Emperor's wounds), it's in there.
