K so I made these rules and I'd like some feedback
Sanguinius Primarch of the Blood Angels
When the arrival of the Space Wolves, Dark Angels and Ultramarines Legions forced Horus to drop the shields protecting his battle barge, Sanguinius, Rogal Dorn of the Imperial Fists, and the Adeptus Custodes joined the Emperor in a teleport assault upon the vessel. The Chaos magicks protecting the ship scattered the Loyalists throughout the ship. Sanguinius was the first to make it onto the bridge of the battle barge, confronting the corrupted Warmaster. As Sanguinius possessed the ability of foresight, it seems almost certain that he knew he was going to his death. It remains unknown whether fatalism or loyalty brought Sanguinius aboard. The Blood Angels themselves have no doubt on the matter. The two Primarchs and former friends finally met on the command deck. Horus offered Sanguinius a position of power if he renounced his loyalty to the Emperor, and Sanguinius refused. Wounded and weary from his battles on Terra, Sanguinius was no match for Horus, then at the height of his daemonic power. In his limitless malice, Horus made sure that Sanguinius' death was the most painful and foul that the boundless evils in his service could administer. The Warmaster's psychic assault was so powerful it echoed down through the generations of Sanguinius's sons who are haunted by its echo within their souls to this day.
Wargear: The blade encarmine, The Spear of Telesto(*makes one attack per turn).
The Blade Encarmine: The Blade Encarmine is a relic of the Blood Angels. Wielded by the Blood Angels First Chapter Master Belarus, the sword is said to only respond to those who carry the gene code of Sanguinius. The Blade Encarmine is a master crafted Power weapon which adds +2 strength +1 Initiative,
The Spear of Telesto In combat, the spear can emit a blast of energy which vapourises anyone who doesn't have the blood of Sanguinius in his veins. Sanguinius can swing once per turn at one enemy model in addition to any other attacks, it strikes at STR 8 and is a master crafted power weapon, if you hit the model place a small black with the hole centered over the hit model, all models touching and under are hit the blast is Str 5 Ap 3 and never effects Blood Angels (Including Sanguinius).
Blood drinker:It is said that Sanguinius used to drink the blood of his fallen enemy. Every time Sanguinius kills an enemy Independant character he gains 1 wound on a D6 roll of 4+ (note that he only gains a wound for each model not each wound).
Foresight: There is a legend that Sanguinius foresaw his own death to represent this Sanguinius can attempt to foresee the oncoming battle and attempt to avoid oncoming danger by predicting it. If he is reduced to 1 wound he can foresee the oncoming attacks and attempts to avoid them on 4+ before any saves are taken but after they have rolled to hit.
Wings of Sanguinius: Huge Angelic wings gifted to Sanguinous by the Emperor allow Sanguinius to move with Flight. He may enter the board using the Deep Strike special rule if it is in effect and, if unattended by a retinue, may make Hit and Run attacks. Sanguinius has a 12" assault range.
Loved By Blood Angels: Sanguinius Loves his men and would rather die than see them suffer and vice versa for his men. All Blood Angels are at leadership 10, gain +2 attacks on the charge.
All around them the battle of the Emperors palace raged, Titans dueling each other, Space marine and Imperial Guardsmen alike fighting their heretical counterparts, both sides champions were untouchable, but out of all the climactic duels of individual champions there was no fight like that between the pristine, angel primarch of the blood angels; Sanguinius and the the Khornate Greater Daemon Ka'Bandha.
The two were god-like, each dwarfing their own warriors, the Khorne daemon's hands tightened their grip on the giant axe they held, and the angel drew his flaming sword, and stood at the ready with spear and sword in his hands.
But thats before they took to the air............
The daemon's impatience got the better of it and with a bloodthirsty roar it spouted wings and took to the air hurtling towards the angel, but all Ka'Bandha got from his opponent was a blast of energy from the Spear of Telesto and a slash from the Blade Encarmine, but before the daemon flew out of striking distance his axe flashed as it arced toward Sanguinus' head, who dodged it and had his weapons smashed from his hands in return.
But both were unfazed and fought hand to hand , the daemon gouging deep scars into the angels golden armour, while the angel punched and kicked into the daemons form, each blow sending the daemon down further towards the fast approaching ground and with a sound oddly like a sonic boom the opponents impacted and threw up a colossal dust cloud, but when the dust cleared the two champions were gone , back up fighting in the air above the battle.
For what seemed like hours of fighting in stalemate, Sanguinuis lifted Ka'Bandha to the skies and Smashed the Mighty daemon against the wall of the gate where it moved no more, and with a look of contempt towards the broken body of the deamon Saguinius ordered the Eternity Gate to be closed......

these rules are really good. but you should change:
Blood-Drinker: You should make it on a 4+, at least. And also, state that he REGAINS one LOST wound. Your stating makes it look like he gains one wound every time he kills an enemy, which is pretty unfair.
The Wounds: too many. Some ppl may argue, but thats a lot.
WS: i highly doubt that any character except for the Emperor and the Best of any race (Unique Tyranid creature, Reincarnation of Khaine, the Witch King of the Dark Elves, if they have one, teh best Tau fighter, greatest Warboss ever, ect.) have WS 10. Sanguinus is not any of them.
I like your stats, but many ppl estimate Horus has 7 everywhere, and Sanguinus, in some places, had more.

"Kill-kill! Death to the Enemies of the Horned Rat!" Warlord Bweekq at the Battle of Hrad
Horus may not actually be that much better then Sanguinus. Remember that Sanguinus was respected by many, especially Horus. When Sanguinus fought Horus he was already well exhausted from defending the Palace. He had broken a Greater Demons back over his knee, as compared to Horus who had just arrived to fight.I like your stats, but many ppl estimate Horus has 7 everywhere, and Sanguinus, in some places, had more.

I have made said changes
but Sitnam is right Sanguinius was almost as good as Horus He had beaten Horus and the Emperor Hand to hand before his death. Not to mention Horus was at the Height of his Daemonic Powers.
Hydra how could you suggest that "the best tau fighter (maby a joke?) or the best warboss ever" would have ws 10 and then say Sanguinus is not one of them?
First off, hes a Primarch, i can only think of maby Magnus the Red as anyone who would have a lower WS (maby mortarion would be 9 due to being slower, but tougher)
Secondly, hes Sanguinus, he is one of if not THE most esteemed of all primarchs who remaind loyal, hes martial prowess is immense, there are atleast 2 occasions when he defeated bloodthirsters in single combat, not to mention the fact that the well know one was at the hight of the sige where sanguinus had allready been fighting for days, plus the bloodthrister supprise attacked him from behind as the gates closed, plus he killed it with his bare hands.
i think you have done a very good representation of the Primarch Sanguinus Gore Warrior!

Thanks I think although he is not my favourite I thank he is the best Primarch seconded only by Horus
and even then Sanguinius beat Horus Hand to hand before the Heresy
he even beat the Emperor
The only thing I'd say add to this is to the Blood Drinker ability. I'd say if the owning player attempted it, then Sanguinius (and any retinue or attached squad) would be unable to perform a sweeping advance due to being held up from feeding.
Otherwise not too bad at all
@hive fleet hydra
sanguinius was only just worse than horus and horus was only just worse than the emperor and the emperor being chuck norris needs no weapon skill because his roundhouse kicks cant miss.......
anyway back to the sane. or as close as. sanguinius and russ were the only two primarchs to beat horus in single combat sanguinius for his fast reflexes(aka foresight) and russ for his savage ferocity+ he was sober at the time. who am i kidding russ was never sober. anyway if horus has the same ws as the emperor (must be ten hes more than 30,000 years old at the time) then sangunius and russ should be even higher. although russ was b***h slapped by the emperors power fist twice........ but he got up so meh.
Can I just ask, where do you guys find out info on the primarches like Sanguinius? Are they from the novels? If so which ones? Im very interested to read up about this.
Space Wolves (Under Construction) | Circle of Orboros (Under Construction)
Main Page - Lexicanum
Search Primarchs for a list of all of them.
It doesn't cover everything, but it does give a fair bit of detail on them.
Horus Heresy books give some more details.
Old WD and old codexes and rule books will also cover them. Go back to far and you'll get confused though.
In first edition Leman Russ was a Imperial Commander who helped found the Space Wolf Chapter!
