In the vein of Shield of Baal it seems the Warzone Fenris campaign is going to be a two parter with the second parter bring in the long time rivals of the Space Wolves:

Remember it is still a few months out, especially the 40K stuff.

There are a lot of things in the pipeline before it. Deathwatch for example.

You mean the classic myth of GW producing Primarchs? :D
Myth no more.

A lot of people over the years claimed the GDs were all finished and claimed they saw them (talking about myths).

All of them curiously missed this particular vintage-epic-inspired-villain next to the only recently finished LoC his design portfolio.

Remember the Warhammer Fest comment about things changing, but not quite as drastic as End Times/AoS? 40K is on the move.

Speaking of Space Wolves, Natfka, 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..

Can't get a copy of the pics as they're secret squirrel, but my chum confirms that there are
wings on Magnus and it's GW plastic, not FW resin.

Plastic Magnus the Red in Daemon Prince form?

...


1:12. That's my response (with a disbelieving tone).

Well Simon fromFW did drop a big hint that plastic would be the way the Daemon Primarch would go. Makes sense too since they'd be playable in both 40k and 30k.

If, and a big if, the Daemon Primarchs were to exist in-game I could buy that Forge World would be the ones to make them. Not GW though, they'd never make anything that cool.

Plus the Daemon Primarchs in 40k would be a massive game-changer. The powers of a DP combined with the statline of a Primarch, the loyalist and xenos armies would have nothing short of superheavies that could counter such a thing.

Flyers, Super-Heavies, and Gargantuan Creatures all were big shocks to 40k. Why wouldn't GW continue it rolling with plastic Daemon Primarchs?

Daemon Primarchs aren't even new to the game:



Seriously, FW said they won't touch them and they'd be cooler in plastic. Considering Angron should be modern Bloodthirstier size I appreciate the fact that he'd be horrible to assemble in resin and hope for nice plastic models instead.

Old Angron up there has a similar stat line to Skarbrand.


If only Skarbrand could fly (without papa Khone tossing him, that is)...

- Forgeworld will do the Prospero Magnus. In resin. Around Fall, for the Inferno release (as I think Russ may be ready for sale for the next Open Day). There are no "problems", Simon Egan just was afraid of both the horns on his chest and his face. He will be the largest Primarch. And of course FW will continue to produce the 30k Primarchs.

- GW will use the Daemon Primarchs for their ongoing storyline. Because that's the things that "are more interesting". You can use them for both 30k and 40k games, more people buy plastic models than resin. Magnus is finished. But please don't expect all 5/6 Daemon Primarchs tomorrow lol.

- GW already did them (Angron, Mortarion, Magnus and Fulgrim) in EPIC. They all work as large focus models for their respective Cults.

- I wouldn't expect this stuff before the Summer is over. Relax, enjoy your summer releases and campaigns!.

- Tzeentch Arcanites, Thousand Sons, Daemons of Tzeentch. #YearOfTzeentch (btw, don't take the year as year but more as ~12 months lol). Also, these aren't next in line, so again, don't expect this tomorrow ...

Last but not least, a quote from Sad Panda that summs it quite up

"Remember it is still a few months out, especially the 40K stuff.
There are a lot of things in the pipeline before it. Deathwatch for example."

So, let's chill and enjoy our summer =)

Lady Atia

This would be excellente and indeed a game-changer, but CSM really needs this as their current codex sucks. But I believe it once I see it.
