Title: Looking for pointers on making Leman Russ

Hi everybody. I am wanting to make a model to use as Leman Russ but I want to make one that is a bit different to the usual ones that has him brandishing the frost blade and bolter. I was thinking about using wolf claws for his weapons and making his power armour out of terminator legs and a normal body with the abdomen filled out with GS as I always imagined him as a "short" primarch.
Does anyone have any advice or pointers? Or am I just speaking rubbish?

How did you manage to use the chaos knight thighs?
Would you be able to post a pic to show what you mean, it sounds quite cool :)?

hes still a primarch at the end of the day and i think they were all big brutes! id go for your idea and use the terminator legs and tactical marine body, basically truescale :)

Yeah but he is a little big brute :P
My only worry about doing it the way I was thinking is that he might just look like a wolf guard terminator and I can't think how to make him really stand out, if that makes sense.

This is kinda how i imagined him to be. http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http...iw=1280&bih=584
What do you all think of it anyway (I didn't draw it btw)?

very nice image of russ! i still say go for the termie legs and marine body, i know he wasnt particularly tall for a primarch but id imagine him still the size of a normal terminator at least! ;)

Actually there is one of the chaos warrior swords
that looks similiar to Russ's frost blade.
can't find a good pic of it but it has the same shape of
his sword. :)
