    I thought that it was because russ invented the tank, but I could be mistaken.

    It is simply because the Imperial Guard is in gratituidal debt to the spacemarines, and they named the tank after him. Go wikipedia leman russ...

    All wikipedia says is that it was named after Leman Russ. It doesn't state a reason. Just thought I'd tell ya.

    Wasn't he the one who found the STC for the tank? He didn't design it.

    They named it after Leman Russ becuse they ran out of Greek monsters.(eg Chimrea, Hydra, Basalisk, Hellhound)
    If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.

    Myrmidon? That's one of my favorites.
    If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.

    I'm pretty certain as a Wolf that he neither invented it nor found the STC for it.


    The story from memory is tied in with the story of why the wolves and the dark angels hate each other. Story goes that Russ and Lionel were heading towards Terra at the time of the Herresy. On the way they passed a forge-world under heavy attack by Chaos forces. Russ and Lionel had an argument over whether they could spare the time to stop and save the planet and Russ eventually won out.
    The forge-world was saved and the techpriests were extremely relieved. The Dark Angels left before the battle was even won and raced to terra to help the Emperor. As a result the mechanicus only witnessed the victorius Wolves and named their main Tank production after the victorius Primarch.
    Lionel was too late to reach Terra and that is the starting point of all the angst between the 2 legions.

    That make sense?
    I dreamed you had left my side
    No warmth not even pride remained
    And even though you needed me
    It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
