30k Magnus kitbash?

Postby Anacrucis » Fri Mar 10, 2017 12:34 pm

How long do you think it will be till we have a Heresy era Magnus?

I am feeling like I could kitbash one from Custodes but they themselves are not exactly easy to come by. I hate to break up my unit of them for a kitbash.

How many primarchs are we missing in the HH character series now? Is it just Magnus? I feel like I haven't seen Sanguinius either. Or Dorn. Or Alpharius, but then it's arguable as to whether anyone ever sees him.

Let's see... According to Forge World's site we've got 12 Primarchs available for sale. So that leaves 6 left (not included the two-who-shall-not-be-named). For completion's sake, we've got the following:

Loyalist Primarchs
Lion El'Jonson*
Jaghatai Khan*
Leman Russ
Rogal Dorn*
Sanguinius*
Ferrus Manus
Roboute Guilliman
Vulkan
Corvus Corax

Traitor Primarchs
Fulgrim
Perturabo
Konrad Curze
Angron
Mortarion
Magnus*
Horus Lupercal
Lorgar Aurelian
Alpharius*

*indicates there's no official model for 30k.

Interesting how the "bad guy" Primarchs seriously outnumber the Loyalists at this point. My guess is that Magnus is next, followed by Dorn, Alpharius & Sanguinius because the Battle of Terra. In that order. Because the first two have rules but Sangy doesn't. I don't know where that leaves the Khan and the Lion respectively. But that's just my guess.

As to Magnus, specifically... It's a matter of time. The mold already exists because the model can be seen in a bunch of the backsplash art in Inferno. I'd say just wait for it?

The 30k model for Alpharius exists you just have to figure out which one he is, or is he all of them?
