There's no evidence for it no.

If any could it would be Magnus, being in conscious control of his psychic powers.

There are instances where Magnus SEEMS to change his size, but i'm not sure if this is the case with other primarchs. My guess would be no.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

It seemed as though the combatants had swollen to enormous
proportions, like the giants they were in the myths and legends.
The Wolf King’s frostblade struck at Magnus, but his golden axe
turned the blow aside as they spun and twisted in an epic battle
beneath the madness of a blazing storm of sheet lightning and
pounding thunder. This was a battle fought on every level: physical,
mental and spiritual, with each primarch bending every
ounce of their almost limitless power to the other’s destruction.

In an instant, the pyrotechnic cascade of light and fire was extinguished
and a stunning silence swept outwards. All motion
ceased, and the titans battling on the causeway were no more,
each primarch now restored to his customary stature.

Magnus’ stature had always been one of variable proportions,
but his rage had made him huge.

I would say you have taken what is written far too literally, 'it seemed as though the combatants had swollen to enormous proportions'. That would imply to me that the combat was so earth shattering that they were perceived as something more than they had seemed before, not that they had actually become bigger in a physical sense.

yea, with the 'returned to customary stature' part. Makes it pretty clear to me, that they did in some way, to the naked eye get larger.
