BREAKING: New Horus Heresy Primarch Unveiled!

Magnus the Red, Primarch of the Thousand Sons, is getting a new model from Forge World! Check out the next Horus Heresy Primarch model!

If you can make it to Warhammer Fest 2017 then you’ll be one of the first people who will have a shot at snagging the new Magnus the Red Primarch model from Forge World.

Magnus the Red, the Crimson King, Lord of Prospero – famous and infamous in equal measure for being perhaps the second most powerful psyker in the Imperium, after his father the Emperor.

Our Warhammer Fest event in Coventry at the end of May will be the first place in the world your can get your hands on the next Horus Heresy Primarch.

I’m liking the look of this new Magnus model from Forge World! The Daemonic version was already a fantastic kit so this one had a high-bar to clear. I think Forge World has managed to do just that with this Horus Heresy Era version of the Red Primarch.

What do you think of this new Horus Heresy Era version of Magnus the Red?


No nipple horns? #NotMyPrimarch

  • danutzfreeman

    The lack of nipple horns disturbs me.

    • ZeeLobby

      I mean really in the artwork for the primarch pre-chaos they were always shoulder spikes. I mean either that or Magnus has unusually high nips.

      • Commissar Molotov

        Looks like this time he has his ceramite sports bra on.

        • ZeeLobby

          Haha. I mean i’m ok with stylized breast plates showing off pectorals. But the droopy sad nips of daemon Magnus are just fugly, haha.

          • dave long island

            lol 🙂

    • EnTyme

      Prospero must have been significantly warmer in the 31st millennium than it is in the 41st.

  • ZeeLobby

    Thank god. No nip horns. Great looking model.

  • Branahar

    Yey im not the only one that thought that the lack of Boob Horns was odd.

    • ZeeLobby

      Tis true, nothing screams sorcerer and Tzeentch better than massive droopy nips.

  • kerouac50

    That right hand is beautiful.

  • SWISSchris

    Are his legs a bit short?

    • Krizzab

      is a manlet primarch! need nipple tuks imho.

    • pulpapocalipsis

      Yes, they are. A pity because the miniature looks good otherwise.

      • SWISSchris

        Sometimes I wonder how professional miniatures designers can get something like anatomy / heroic anatomy so badly wrong. I learnt all I needed from books like “how to draw comics the marvel way” and similar when I was a kid, and I’ve studied it from a medical point of view since. Basic proportion is not that hard – add muscle mass, add armour, and you have something that looks believable.

        • pulpapocalipsis

          I don’t get it either, because the designer is obviously anything but an amateur. And if he is the same that did the rest of Primarchs he is obviously awesome. Also, given GW budget, nor money or time constraints should be a problem. So I really don’t get how this passed all control phases into mass production.

  • PrimoFederalist

    You can’t tell but lookin at him, but the small of his back fits perfectly over Russ’ knee.

    • Walter Vining

      The Space Wolves approve this post

    • Carlill

      You merely adopted the Grimdark.

    • Jonathan B.

      Oh snap!

      • Rafał Pytlak

        What Russ said…

    • Argh arcturus

      Actually, I think of Russ as more of a bottom. It’s why he’s mad. He’s sick of receiving…

  • Randy Randalman

    Both kits are incredible.

    • ZeeLobby

      Suckling at the Magnus teet eh?

  • piglette

    I like the ones that have more conservative poses like this one.

  • BrassWitch

    He seems a bit small to me, but everything else is absolutely fantastic.

  • AX_472

    is sleeveless power army really a thing?

    • OldHat

      Thousand Sons out, guns out?

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      It’s been a thing for a long while.

  • Looks like Scibor to me.

    • Badgerboy1977

      It’s correctly proportioned and well posed so can’t be….

  • red_badger

    God, what a beautiful model. I’ll definitely buy that one.

  • Crablezworth

    great, now fix the god damn book and answer a bloody email about rules

  • MechBattler

    Guess they finally decided the horntits looked too stupid to keep on the model.
    That works out. I was going to replace them on the daemon version with more gems or something.

  • Argh arcturus

    It’s better than the Citadel model.

  • Graeme Donaldson

    That pose is hideously awkward. Thankfully I don’t buy Space Marines so it doesn’t matter!

    • Geko747

      Standing up with an arm extended? Looks fine to me.

  • The Rout

    Am i the only one who thinks Magnus looks a little bit disco? Bare arms, flared trousers, popped collar and dancers pose?

    Is the HH book called inferno as in disco?

    Are the Glass Pyramids made of glass to act as building sized disco balls?

    Is the council of nikea just a parable for the plot of footloose?

    Does this make Magnus a one eyed Kevin Bacon?

    Did Russ only hate Magnus because he envied his rhythm?


    • Geko747

      Nope, can’t agree with you on that one.

      • The Rout

        Can’t or won’t? :p

        Seriously though, look at him and his pointing hand and sing “STOP, in the name of loooove” and tell me you don’t see it 🙂

        • Aura1

          This goes perfectly well with ‘Ice Skating’ Russ. Look at the FW Russ model and imagine ice skates on his feet and you can NEVER UNSEE IT. Magnus’ revenge…

          • The Rout

            Omfg you’re so right! I can’t unsee it!

            At least Russ ice skating makes sense… sort of. Magnus just loves you get funky.

          • Aura1

            I am not saying it’s a deal breaker. Especially together they are a dance of ice and fire. It will be very moving. And involve sequins.

          • The Rout

            And an sexually aggressive dance off of course.

  • markdawg

    I’d like to see him standing next to other Primarchs to get the Idea of how much taller he is.
