Magnus the Red, Daemon Primarch of Tzeentch’s box has been seen – Is a plastic version of this Primarch Inbound?
This is big news 40k Fans – an image of Magnus The Red’s torn-up box has been found online. And it looks like a new plastic kit is on the way!
Is this real or is it a very convincing fake? I’ll let you be the judge. Personally, I’m hoping this is legit – but if it is a fake Games Workshop may want to hire who ever came up with it because it’s a really good fake!
We heard inklings of Magnus’ return all the way back in June of this year.

“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…
Kit-bash + Photoshop Skills or legit torn-up box? You make the call!
