1 Dark Angels - Lion El' Jonson - Taciturn, reserved, calculating, great at planning strategy and organisation. Disliked Russ, whom he thought was a boastful and coarse barbarian, though eventually gained respect for him.

2 All records expunged from library - order origination unknown

3 Emperor's Children - Fulgrim - Dedicated, inspired perfectionist. Respected Horus, acted as mentor to Konrad Curze. Close friends with Ferrus Manus.

4 Iron Warriors - Perturabo - Cold, brooding, technological genius. Loner, respected Horus, absolutely loathed Rogal Dorn, whom he considered boastful and arrogant, stealing the glory after the sacrifices of the Iron Warriors.

5 White Scars - Jaghatai Khan - Ruthless, sometimes bloodthirsty, believed in lightning warfare and unification of mankind. Liked Rogal Dorn.

6 Space Wolves - Leman Russ - Unsophisticated, headstrong, sense of humour and honour. Disliked and distrusted Magnus as sorceror echewing battle, possibly with taint of Chaos, considered Jonson aloof and distainful.

7 Imperial Fists - Rogal Dorn - Extremely loyal to Emperor, not humble, tactless, belief in purfication through pain. Disliked Perturabo.

8 Night Lords - Konrad Curze - Merciless punisher of the evil, belief in terror as tool of submission and order. Loner, haunted by visions of future, only confided in mentor Fulgrim, attacked Rogal Dorn.

9 Blood Angels - Sanguinius - Angelic, noble, inspiring, devoted to the Emperor, self-sacrificing.

10 Iron Hands - Ferrus Manus - Hatred of weakness, merciless, belief in the mechanical as superior. Held Horus in great esteem for martial virtue and strength. Close friends with Fulgrim.

11 All records expunged from library - order origination unknown

12 World Eaters - Angron - Proud warrior, extremely strong sense of martial honour, anti-authoritarian. Viewed Emperor as weak coward, Horus as strong leader.


13 Ultramarines - Roboute Guilliman - Noble, slightly arrogant, bringing peace and prosperity, supremely talented at organisation. Considered Alpharius an upstart.

14 Death Guard - Mortarion - Sullen, remorseless and relentless, belief in justice and right ensured by the mighty. Only confided and respected Horus and Night Haunter. Distrusted by Guilliman and Corax.

15 Thousand Sons - Magnus the Red - Belief in the seeking of knowledge, that no knowledge is of itself tainted. Distrusted by Mortarion and Leman Russ.

16 Luna Wolves - Horus - Charismatic, master of psychology, outstanding leader and general, exceptional strategic and organisational skill. Almost universally respected and admired by the Primarchs. Admired Sanguinius.

17 Word Bearers - Lorgar - Religious fanatic, powerful orator, charismatic, devoted and passionate towards cause. Despised and envious towards Guilliman.

18 Salamanders - Vulkan - Proud, honourable, dependable, determined.

19 Raven Guard - Corax - Taciturn, watchful, master of surgical strikes and precise application of force. Distrustful of Mortarion, and Horus, whom he considered to be overtly manipulative.

20 Alpha Legion - Alpharius - Cunning, intelligent, master of devastating, underhand tactics and organisation, secretive. Greatly respected Horus' abilities, disliked Guilliman's arrogance.

The OP said how do they view each other.

That is what DantesInferno exactly did. He wrote about how other Primarchs viewed each other.

Horus thought Sanguinius should have been given the honour of Warmaster, and noted that both Guilliman and Jonson felt they deserved the honour just as much as he. Perturabo and Angron didn't like the decision, either. Sanguinius, Ferrus Manus, Fulgrim and Mortarion are known to have rejoiced at the decision.

The anti-psyker primarchs (Russ, Corax, Dorn, Mortarion) all viewed Magnus the Red with suspicion.

The "visions.." series also makes reference that Khan and Russ were friends-- Khan is very reluctant to leave Russ and the Wolves fighting the Alpha legion but reluctantly obeys his orders.

Guess primitive savages of a feather...:p

The answers given are based mainly on the IA articles and canonical fluff (not the HH artbook stuff). More is being revealed via the HH series though. Like Manus' friendship with Fulgrim etc.

If Russ, Corax, Dorn and Mortarion where anti-psyker, how did they view the Emperor?

Magnus was also fiercely loyal to the Emperor and Horus knew he would never join his cause, which is why after the Emperor told Russ to bring Magnus to Terra ALIVE Horus contacted Russ and told him of all the foul deeds and heretical behavior that Magnus had done (or didnt do, as the case may be) to enrage him into killing Magnus before he had a chance to plead his case and potentially convince the Emporer of Horus's betrayal.

I think that's about it really, the Primarch that Horus was closest to was Sanguinius.

There was as much petty rivalry between some of the Primarchs as any siblings. Definately not completely 'united', but all followed orders when pushed.
