Magnus the Red was unique among the Primarchs. Above all his brothers, Magnus the Red was the most numinous, a psyker of prodigious power. His very essence boiled with psychic potential, to the extent that his physical form seemed likely to be more a matter of will, and those who fell under his cyclopean gaze would feel their thoughts and substance to be no more opaque than glass, their innermost secrets laid open beneath the Crimson King’s stare. In battle, Magnus the Red fought like a mythical god; fire wreathed him and followed in his wake like a burning cloak. Possessed of a supreme intelligence and a hunger for knowledge, Magnus saw himself and his Legion as creators of the future. Others might think of themselves as working for the betterment of Mankind, even of being bearers of the Imperium’s ideals, however Magnus saw another path. To him the Great Crusade, and each step on its bloody path, was a step from the darkness of ignorance into the light of reason and knowledge. Magnus scowls beneath gloriously ornate armour, featuring a cape, crest and shoulder horns along with the shining plates and pauldrons. His right hand is given over to the summoning of warpfire, and his left brandishes the Blade of Ahn-Nunurta – as to be expected for a model supplied with such a detailed base, the model itself is a riot of detail ripe for the eager painter to pick out. The diorama base is a shining example of the psychic might of Magnus, depicting the Primarch standing atop a rocky outcrop surrounded by the billowing warpfire he summons to annihilate those who stand between him and glory. A detailed construction guide is included – to keep the gaming base removable, care is required with glue, and there is a spare cape clasp in the kit (it’s an especially delicate piece!) Should you wish to add another layer of base this model can be placed, along with Leman Russ, Primarch of the Space Wolves, in the Magnus & Leman Russ Diorama Base (sold separately.) This 47-part resin kit contains all the components needed to assemble this appropriately spectacular Magnus The Red miniature. It comes with two bases – one 40mm gaming base with minimal (yet still impressive) detail, and a 60mm diorama base. Rules for Magnus The Red are available in The Horus Heresy Book Seven – Inferno.
