GW: Plastic Magnus CONFIRMED, Sisters Mentioned

magnus-spoiled-gw-eddie

It’s amazing what GW’s social media team find in the trash… Hint… It’s a plastic Primarch!


“Recycling is important. But you don’t need to dig through a thousand old dust bins to keep an eye out for rumours of this magnitude.”

This is clearly a quick reaction to today’s earlier leak listed below for completeness:

We heard inklings of Magnus’ return all the way back in June of this year.

via Mauler 6-9-2016 (DISQUS)

 “I bumped into an old mate last night who had a chap with him who I’d not met before. He said that he knew people working at GW, said that they were working on Warzone: Fenris pt2 at the moment and showed me two grainy photos.

I assume that the delay in pt2 is down to the models involved as one pic was of Thousand Sons in ornate armour that I’d not seen before and the other pic was of a daemonic Magnus. Hard to make out details on him from memory but there was a fair bit of blue & red on him and I vaguely remember something like blue pinions outstretched from his back but I’m not sure if they were wings. Clearly a departure from a Primarch Magnus from FW.

And a plastic Magnus from GW was the last thing I expected to see. It looked legit, but I don’t know the chap, so…”

Again, it’s been a long time in the making so maybe this is what the source was referring to all along. Perhaps Games Workshop is planning on creating all the Daemon Primarchs while Forge World handles the Heresy-Era versions. It would be a great way to double-dip! Guess we’ll have to wait-and-see what ends up happening with this whole “Plastic Primarch” thing…

 

~ “What’s this – plastic Sisters of Battle” – LOL!!!

  • Dan Wilson

    Not sure how much of the Plastic Sisters comment is joke and how much is hint… certainly they’re aware of how much demand there is for plastic sisters with that comment at least.

    • Adrien Fowl

      Taking into account the great way they are dealing with rumours and releases and marketing in general, I do not think they would laugh at our need to get some Adepta Sororita’s love. That would be too cruel.

      They already know we are eager to get a new range of Sisters of Battle and it would be pretty foolish not to take advantage of that urge.

      • Dan Wilson

        Let the fapping commence.

        • ashikenshin

          faps for the emperor

          • rtheom

            Drive closer! I want to hit them with my…

    • knightsanguis

      Personally, I think they were serious. I don’t think they would willingly annoy their fans with a prank like that after these last few months of trying to regain their trust.

      • Emprah

        Yeah, I doubt they would spite the fans like this. Plus with the Sisters, remember that you only need to make 1 coversion kit with their Repressor/Flamer tank/church organ tank and bling and than just box it with an SM rhino.

      • DeadlyYellow

        Always practice skepticism. Ubisoft, for instance, has been stringing BG&E fans along on a sequel for eight years, and have only recently announced it to be in “pre-development.”

        Take everything with salt. Ignore all but actual releases/ planned “leaks.” You’ll curb disappointment.

      • Shatterclaw

        Not after 10 years of doing so…. surely not..

    • Well they keep getting mentioned in the new books, heck the Interview with Jess Godwin in WD, he even namedropped Aribites while talking about designing figures, which seemed very out of place…. unless they are in the pipeline as well…..

    • Myc

      I’d say that the fact there’s never been any finecast for the Sister’s is indicative of a general idea to just ditch the finecast stage altogether and focus on providing new and improved Sisters in plastic (the metal models aren’t worth the time or effort making into finecast).

      • Muninwing

        which might have been the reason they’ve languished on the shelf for so long…

        but considering the DE (in both lines) Witch/Wych models and their aesthetic, it bods well for what the new Sisters in plastic could conceivably be.

        now that they have some long overdue books out that have not retconned half the game (unlike Ward SM, so that’s a plus), they may have slowed down enough to address the areas that need the most attention: sisters, chaos, nids for rules and models both.

      • Severius_Tolluck

        They did get one! The exorcist was redone in finecast. However as far as I know that was is.

    • Templar of love

      maybe it’s about sisters of silence. it would make sense taking into account previous rumors about Battle of Prospero

      • Muninwing

        add a couple swap parts…

        why not both?

    • Muninwing

      sadly, with the amount of “yesyesyesyes!!!” that has happened, if it was just a joke they will look like the tools many people assume they are

      but since they haven’t really botched anything hard in a year or so, it’s about time for them to do something stupid…

  • knightsanguis

    Well, they did just ‘leak’ plastic Rubric Marines and Magnus… I guess I can believe them about plastic Sisters actually happening in a few months.

    Probably won’t be able to afford Magnus, but I’m looking forward to finally seeing Tzeentch armies get some attention after this two year-long Khorne-fest.

    • Arthfael

      You mean there are servants of Chaos who are not dedicated to Khorne?

    • Emperor’s Champion

      Even if it’s not a dual build lord of change kit I think i’ll still buy him and use him as one for AoS

    • Walter Vining

      the prospero box is coming out, that would have been that

  • Emperor’s Champion

    I kid you not I was listening to Iron maiden whilst watching this and now all I can think is. CAN I PLAY WITH MAGNUS!!!

    • Ross Allan

      No. he’s been a naughty Primarch and has been grounded for 10,000 years. So he’s not out to play.

      • John Grammaticus

        He’s not the Primarch, he’s a very naughty boy!

    • Arthfael

      The prophet stared at his Facebook feed… there’s a vision there alright.

  • apackistany

    TZEENTCH LIVES!

  • Nyyppä

    This is great for CSM players. Well, some of them anyway.

    • Darth Bumbles

      Most of them actuslly, it means the rumours of Daemon Primarchs might not be just rumours.

      It’s only us Night Lord/Alpha Legion players whose Primarchs are dead for whom it’s not good news. Even the Black Legion have a chance of using Daemon Primarchs.

      • Ben Martin

        Well, how do you know Alpharius is dead?
        And I should know, after all, I am Alpharius…

        • Emprah

          Omegon is certainly not alive folks, nothing to see here.

          • usGrant7977

            Wait. Are you saying your NOT Omegon?

        • Darth Bumbles

          Good point, I should have said “for those of us whose Primarchs haven’t ascended to daemonhood”.

        • Walter Vining

          the one small rumor of a plastic Russ primarch model may also be true, which could lead to the same issue on the astartes side of things

      • Nyyppä

        That’s just the cult legions. Then there are just as many others of which some of the primarchs will still be alive and I don’t think they’ll release Lorgar, Perturabo or the potential Alpharius/Omegon. They could even resurrect the rest thanks to plausibility created in the HH novels. The beauty of CSM is that they can do what ever they want with it but I doubt that they cater to CSM fans any more than they now absolutely have to.

        • Darth Bumbles

          Purterabo could be some nightmare Daemon machine hybrid and Lorgar just a pretty face floating in a cloud of pure arrogance.

          • Nyyppä

            That’s more than nothing. I have no idea what they look like now but yeah, that’d be something for the CSM fans.

          • georgelabour

            Like the genie in Pee Wee’s playhouse?

            Or zordon from power rangers?

          • Shinnentai

            Purterabo plays Eldar? O__o

          • Darth Bumbles

            Of course he does, he’s a power gamer – he’d hardly play Chaos 😉

    • knightsanguis

      As far as Chaos is concerned, I believe this is just the tip of the iceberg for them. I believe we’ll be seeing daemon versions of Angron, Fulgrim and Mortarion further down the line, as well as up to date respective cult Marine kits to accompany each Primarch. And if we’re lucky, we might even finally see 7th edition releases of CSM and Daemons. I could be wrong but in the event that I’m not… Called it. 😉

      • Nyyppä

        If they reduce CSM to cults it’s….well, bad. That’s what the result is if they do not release the undivided primarchs too. I know plenty of CSM fans and one, only one of those plays a god specific army.

        • Christie Bryden

          better than what they have now, which is nothing.

          • Nyyppä

            Well, yeah. It’s like the situation in which a person is so far below rock bottom that something getting worse breaks some logic barrier and because of that counts as a good thing. Literally any change is good. CSM fans have been beaten so long that just not slapping across their faces them with what ever is released is awesome. 😀

          • Christie Bryden

            well if we look at the box it says thousand sons, not chaos space marines, even kharn had chaos space marines, this could mean they are getting there own codex which they should, they are more different than blood angels are to regular marines.

            while I do agree it wouuld be best if ALL the legions got there own rules, if they had to condence the rules to a few, the 4 god specific ones would be the best choice, followed by iron warriors. Its no way a ideal choice, but having the forces that actualy have rich lore and interesting characters get rules is a great start. Especialy when previusly the books were catered to guys we never heard of and didnt care about. It would be the equivelent of the next space marine codex being about the generic blandys marines (insert ultramarines joke if you wish but atleast they have history and characters) rather than any of the ones we know about.

          • Nyyppä

            Sure. I’d go for cults having their own books and undivided having a Space Marine style codex because that really is enough. Just cults having their codices is just not enough.

        • E65

          Who in their right mind would even contemplate playing mono god armies currently anyway, unless it was CSM/KDK!

          Any Chaos player worth his/her salt WANTS Legion Codeci. They are Chaos incarnate, the reason for being. Armies of naughty little turncoat space marines who had a tantrum are NOT Chaos!

          Chaos does not need primarchs to fix the faction. STOP encouraging GW marketing into thinking customers want yet more big overpriced robots/monsters as an excuse for poorly designed lazy army lists .

          What armies need are capable core units to make faction list building customizable and variable that keeps players engaged. It is rather obvious that the idea of making a codex where core force builder units are made to be rubbish and a few new models are given over the top rules so they must be auto picked to make the army work is an abject failure. Indeed, it is an abject failure for GW because interest in that faction wanes, they piss off their customers, and sales go south.

          • Nyyppä

            I agree with your every word. GW however does not. Sadly.

          • amaximus167

            I want plastic Demon Primarchs. Are you kidding!?

            I however, also want playable CSM Traitor Legions.

            It is possible, maybe not probable, that when they release Magnus and the 1ksons that the 1ksons will come with playable rules. It appears, from the box art, that they may be getting their own codex. I can totally understand why you’re not holding out hope for that. But it might happen…

            And if they do that with the rest of the Traitor Legions it would be even better.

          • E65

            Sure, Primarchs will be nice. But I will buy plastic TS squads way before the Magnus model. I’m sure players will rush out and buy it first though, which to GW just means they must be getting things right. I do hold out hope for decent traitor legion books though. What they did with Genestealer Cults is fantastic. Here’s hoping it was not an aberration. See what I did there! 🙂

          • amaximus167

            I will probably also buy regular TS first. I am positive that Magnus will be passed my tipping point for model prices. But I am still excited that they are doing Primarchs.

            I have been hearing that the GSCs are awesome. I also hope that points towards a brighter future for CSM.

  • SilentPony

    Well, way to spoil the ending to the Wulfen Saga!

    • georgelabour

      Silly player. In 40k lore there are no endings. Jut new beginnings for the latest model line.

      And Ciaphas Cain novels.

  • PlasmaCow

    genuinely burst out laughing at the sisters of battle comment at the end. GW really have had a major attitude readjustment over the past year or so – and all for the better!

    • Arthfael

      They have changed, and now hope is reborn for us. All praise mighty Tzeentch!

  • Guido Hockmann

    Mint

  • happy_inquisitor

    Well played GW.
    Whoever applies for those jobs in their online media team will be working with some pretty switched-on people.

  • normann97

    Oh.
    My.
    God.
    You know, if GW actually makes Plastic Sisters, I will stop buying pirate stuff. Forever.
    If company actually does stuff to deserve our money, I see no reason, why we shouldn’t pay. Good work GW, truly good work.

    • Valeli

      I’ll hop on board. I’d even buy a few more of the metal ones before the new ones come out so I can use the new ones as celestians/dominions and not have to rebuy a whole army at once.

      I can’t wait. If this is really a thing. I”ll give GW some of my money. A lot.

    • Old zogwort

      Forget plastic sisters they just made a Illidan Stormrage model. 😀

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    Notice how the box says, “Thousand Sons” above Magnus’ name? I am betting we will get a codex for the T-Sons. Probably small and lite like Deathwatch and the Genestealer Cults.

    • DeadlyYellow

      Or Legion of the Damned.

    • Djbz

      So they’ll have Magnus as LOW.
      Ahriman (and other Sorcerers) as HQ
      Power Armour Thousand sons as HQ
      (Presumably) The Chaos Tanks

      And (Maybe) Terminator Armour Thousand Sons?
      (Some of them HAD to have been in Terminator armour)

      Smallish codex.
      But 1 Legion would be down only 7 Left to sort out (As we have a Black legion supplement already)

    • Matt Mo

      GSC codex is huge!!! Lol really. 103 pages! But seriously it would be awesome to have a T sons codex if we aren’t gonna get Tzeentch Daemonkin

  • Kritarion

    Plastic SoB… Well now they are teasing us.

    But A+ to their social team, owning up to the leaks.

  • CthulhuDawg

    So I know it’s CSM players limelight but If 40k end times is indeed on
    it’s way and Lion El’Jonson wakes up within The Rock, in plastic, I
    might crap myself to death.

    • rtheom

      That will not be a good pre-release weekend at GW stores because I’m pretty sure most of us would…

      • Severius_Tolluck

        The Floor will run brown and slick with the well er… runs…

  • OolonColluphid

    Armor looks a too bright for a Deamon Primarch.

    • Emperor’s Champion

      this is tzeentch though

      • OolonColluphid

        Tzeentch means more blue colors rather than poorly clashing yellow standing in for gold.(what his armor is supposed to be) It doesn’t match the art depictions at all.

        • Emperor’s Champion

          the gold armour is fine I don’t get what’s wrong with it.

          • OolonColluphid

            Too bright compared to the official art. Making it look awful.
            http://tinyurl.com/zgg8h4c

          • Emperor’s Champion

            might just be the sheen on the box. Even so I think it looks perfect.

  • Kevin Maloney

    (Stares at the news about plastic Sisters. Goes into a state of shock that lasts for almost twenty minutes)

    Damn it, no, I’ve been betrayed by false rumours often enough in the past. Pics, or it isn’t true.

  • Arthfael

    There’s no way the Sisters comment is a joke. If it is, Sisters players are going to absolutely hate GW even more than they do right now, if possible. No one in their right mind would joke about that! In a way, this is even bigger than Magnus.

    • Arthfael

      Who, incidentally, is awesome!!!

    • Countdiscount

      This just confirms that they hear their customers clamoring for Sisters.

      But prepare yourself if they don’t come out for another 6 months or so

      • Arthfael

        I think Sisters players can easily wait a few more months. I personally play Eldar and just started a small Black Templar force, but I may pick a box if they’re good, just to encourage GW’s new amazing trend of resurrecting dead or dying armies.

    • benn grimm

      Yes way dude…

  • James Tompsett

    Weird horn boobs put me off a bit.

  • Xodis

    Awesome!!! Glad to know Deamon Primarch Models are a real thing, and glad to see Tzeentch/1KSons get some love.

  • Christie Bryden

    the box says thousand sons not CSM!

  • Simon Chatterley

    It’s becoming like the GW of the 90’s

    Now they just need a racing yacht and a music label and we are complete.

    • Arthfael

      Bring back Bolt Thrower!

    • Defenestratus

      Sir Ben Ainsle I’m sure would let GW sponsor his America’s Cup rocket ship:
      https://youtu.be/Wzd-c95G64A

      Note: The wing on that boat costs as much as GW’s entire revenue for last year.

      • wibbling

        £120 million?

  • Latro_the_Zombie

    its not a reaction to the leak… they did the leak! the bg of the pic is red.. like the bin

    • Arthfael

      That is no way to call a primarch!

    • Defenestratus

      thats an excellent observation.

      You sir – win a free appetizer of braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaains tonight.

    • pad_uk

      Oh my….. you’re so totally on the money there. Great spot. +40,000 Internet points.

    • Koonitz

      While it’s very possible you’re right, it just means that’s the LOCATION of the original picture. Doesn’t necessarily mean the original picture was meant to be leaked.

    • Severius_Tolluck

      unless they staged it to match up as a joke. Either way, if they have a sense of humor it would work out for the best.

  • Rafał Pytlak

    Isn’t the Sororitas thing just a meme at this point? Something to trashtalk about for the heck of it? If they really release them i speculate that almost nobody will buy them (they’re not Astertes= no selling power) and that will be the end of that…

    • Brian Griffith

      That must be why GW just released a whole non-astartes army.

    • Thomas Gardiner

      I haven’t bought any GW models for a good while now. If they brought out plastic Sisters, I’d happily drop several hundred pounds on them.

    • Shatterclaw

      Let’s looks at this, Sisters have No selling power, yet the metals have sold for a long time, and spiked when new releases.. the only reason they haven’t sold better is it had become cheaper to buy a army in mostly plastic to all plastic.

      A single metal sister was about five bucks, a plastic marine is about 3 bucks.

      Considering most build then in squads of ten.. your shelling out 50 for ten sisters.. vs 35 to 40 for Marines..

      If sisters had been on plastic when I started playing I have a sister army right now.

      Also if sisters dont sell, then why would raging hero’s make a line that was similar?

      • Severius_Tolluck

        correction, ten dollars a model!

  • Latro_the_Zombie

    Also… ‘Sisters of Battle’ not Adepta Sororitas… can hear the GW IP hammer internal email slamming its way to the marketing dept post haste

    • ashikenshin

      The army might be called adepta sororitas but the models themselves are called sisters of battle. (Even on the website)

      • Latro_the_Zombie

        how odd, some are called battle sisters and other sisters of battle…

        • ashikenshin

          yeah, naming is all over the place. I think they still reference them as the army “sisters of battle” even though it has changed.

      • Darth Bumbles

        The Adapta Sororitas covers all the groups, including teachers and hospitallers, the Sisters of Battle are the ones who fight.

  • Parthis

    Do we still have to reset the clock if it’s GW saying “Plastic Sisters”?

  • polyquaternium7

    here’s to hoping in a few months they will releas plastic sisters of battle

    • Carey_Mahoney

      Christmas release, maybe?

  • ZeeLobby

    All about plastic sisters. Hooray unbalanced faction number 23 though….

    • Nyyppä

      That’s one faction that can not be BB with anything other than Inquisition. Naturally they will be BB with all imperials but still.

      • ZeeLobby

        Haha, I mean I really feel like they’ve just given up at this point. They’ll just add 8 new factions a year, phase out old ones, and never adjust the rules. I’m just not sure if that’s a game i want to play…

        • Nyyppä

          Yeah. Looks like that their priorities are a bit skewed. I’m all for sisters getting new iteration but I’d rather have them fix the game first and add old stuff then.

          Well, I have 30k to keep me happy though it would be nice to be able to field my 40k stuff too.

    • Daniel Hall

      Be as unbalanced as it wants; I want more factions.

      we ALREADY have a convoluted mess of a rules system; but is that going to stop me from buying a huge army of Thousand sons? not a chance…. So may as well go totally nanners with the releases and make them really impressive…..which to be fair GW can do and has done! look at deathwatch followed by Stealer Cult. Now THIS!!! 😮 😀

      • ZeeLobby

        Oh dont get me wrong. Theyve been killing the latest faction releases. Its just getting harder and harder to find games, and larger events have gotten extremely repetitive and boring.

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Its not a new faction though.. it has a current codex. It will be a readdress to some internal issues within the codex. It is after all one of the absolute weakest. Course we know they will crank it up to 11, and the creep renews but GW has done that since 2nd ed….

      • ZeeLobby

        To varying degrees though. The “they have always done this” excuse is pretty variable reasoning. No one can make the claim that the current state of the game is the same as 5th edition, or 4th/3rd. Yes second was crazy, but it was also very RPG-rooted heavy. I just want to see them focus on the game for once, as a whole, rather than the next models to stamp out to make money.

  • BloodAngel

    Sisters! Awesome. I am excited.

  • benn grimm

    Nice to see them keeping design staff in the bin where they belong. Nice to see Magnus the Pink and Blue finally getting a release, looking pretty badass and Blanche-art-adherant. Cept those wings, which tbf aren’t any sillier than the epic verison.

  • Edouard Decaen

    I am happy

  • TheWanderingJewels

    Welcome Back, Magnus. We missed you. Nice Face Lift

  • Nyyppä

    So, is that the 100mm base?

  • Diagoras

    Magnus the Red AND new plastic Thousand Sons…

    My shriveled little hearts just might burst.

    • Commissar Molotov

      And what happened, then? Well, on Terra they say that Diagoras’ small heart grew three sizes that day. And then the true meaning of Prospero came through, and Diagoras found the strength of *ten* primarchs, plus two!

      • Bran D

        That sir, was funny.

  • Mikhailkery

    Mentioned= Not enough

  • Admiral Raptor

    This was humorous, informative, and self aware. Who kidnapped GW and replaced it with a competent company? 😛

    More of this kind of stuff please! The needless secrecy should have been thrown in the trash years ago. Now that I know plastic thousand sons are coming along side Magnus I’m actually excited for the release!

    The Rubric marines had better get new rules though. If they do, sign me up for Magnus and a full army. If not, I won’t spend a penny on them.

    • Daniel Hall

      Ill get Magnus regardless….but the number of Rubricae i get is exactly proportional to the rules and what they get to fix them. (24 points a model for a marine statline?…yeah…right….)

    • wibbling

      You’ve AP3 bolters, an invulnerable save and a psyker in every unit. What more do you want?

      • Daniel Hall

        Allow me to elaborate sir!

        first problem; DRASTICALLY OVERPRICED. to a huge margin. the Sorcerer leading the squad is 60 points, and has a TERRIBLE lore choice (very bad overall)

        A squad of 9 is 252 points. for 9 Marines. little bit over the budget once you factor in the all but “required” rhino.

        The unit needs to be at the 12 inch band to do anything useful with its 24ppm marines. (that being the biggest possible issue) and that wonderful 4+ invul save, while being VERY nice is also absolutely useless against basic guns…which as you probably know, basic guns kill T4 / 3+ marines just fine!

        realistically if they keep that statline? just give a points reduction to be 20ppm or maybe a hair less and thats fine, or leave them at 24 and buff them in some way (ignoring cover would help, or maybe variable ammo AKA; Chaosy Sternguard) something like that.

        That and fix the awful tzeentch lore. (i have left fluff out of this equation, just going by table/dice crunch for this explanation)

        Essentially they are so “niche” that they are almost useless, as the only Niche they fill is 3+ armor save models. which…well…..if you field a horde? (orks, guard, most nids) they are nigh on useless at that cost. If you field terminators? they are again; useless for the cost. But power armor models; Beware! (when you arent in cover..)

        • MechBattler

          ALL the Cult Marines would benefit from going down about 3-4 ppm base cost. Though admittedly, the Thousand Sons need the drop more than the others particularly because they have no options.

  • Emdee

    Now…..the 3 eyed raven can return…….

    Silly GW, we learned months ago that those are called “runners” not “sprues”…Thanks BoLS for making me smarter!…

  • usGrant7977

    Damn Magnus looks fugly. Like a Heman reject. HornBirdMan, with stabbing nipple action!

    So sad, ’cause i loves me some 1k sons.

  • Jeremy Larson

    …. Nipple horns? Really?

  • Rainthezangoose

    Seriously, iv NEVER in my life bought anything directly from GW, neither have I EVER bought any models anything other then piecemeal.

    Sister would change that. I played 40k when I was in primary school. Always waiting for them to be updated, just thinking it was inevitable, around the corner. I swear to god if that joke is a joke joke, then i’m throwing my imperial dummy out of my skull pram.

  • jed kar

    Loved it! Now am I the only one who cannot think of Magnus the red without asking myself: “what about kitten?!” (ref. what if the emperor had a text to speech device?)

  • Bredkooler

    Its awful nice to see GW responding to leaks for once instead of the usual silence we’ve come to expect

    • wibbling

      Double plus second that. It is a positive step.

  • Randy Randalman

    Well done, GW. You’ve won this round.

  • Karru

    All I can say about this is the following:

    *Ahem*

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bad entry into a Plastic Primarch, this Magnus is just ugly. I like Magnus and i love thousand sons but hell, this paint job is bad or the mini is just really not well done.

    • E65

      Nagash model is rubbish. Sorry, but its the hi-tech 21st century version of the original.

    • amaximus167

      Really? I also like Magnus and the 1ksons and think the model is spot on with all the art and descriptions I have ever seen or read and love the model. Not saying we have to be the same, just funny that we come from the same place and have totally different opinions.

  • Tom

    Man, whoever is heading up GW’s marketing/social media department is doing a stellar job. These videos are great!

  • jack boland

    He looks truly terrible. Nothing like the magnus demon primarch i imagined.

    • amaximus167

      Have you not seen any of the art? He looks enough like the majority of Magnus art I have seen.

      • Jack Boland

        With this many years of fluff, there will be art to suit just about any possible iteration. There is also the same amount of art that doesn’t fit the above. What I’m talking about is he fact that nothing about his actual story line fits with the photo above.

        • amaximus167

          I think we will have to agree to disagree, because I think he looks perfectly how I imagined him based on the the fluff and the overwhelming majority of the artwork that shows him looking similar to the above rendition. So even though we can find a piece of art where he looks like the one eyed flying monkey demon from epic, it is not in the majority.

          • jack boland

            actually, thats not what i meant at all. Magnus never wanted to turn to chaos, it was much more complicated then that. In addittion, even after he turned, he was not a willing pawn of chaos. In my mind, I dont see him being the standard tzeentch demon prince.

  • DJ860

    That picture of the packaging does certainly look like it was taken directly in that red recycling bin lol.

    I would not want to be that person if they get found out.

    I’m amazed GW aren’t doing a better job with their wastage, I’d heard stories before of people rummaging around in the bins for this sort of thing.

  • erion

    I chuckled. It’s nice to see GW embrace this kind of silliness after so many years of bland corporate textbook marketing.

  • Foh

    All I think is dollar signs when I look at that model probably par or more than thirster model

  • Carey_Mahoney

    I really hope the new SoB will keep looking like nuns and will not be turned into sexy nuns. Neither do I want to see the Seraphim having winged jump packs like the Sanguinary Guard has, because, well, that would be a bit tawdry… It would fit, I guess, but it would be cheap, design-wise.

  • Josiah

    I like it, but I’m not sure about the nipple horns though.
