In 1990, the world was introduced to the Primarchs – demigod children of the Emperor himself, created to lead the Space Marine Legions. In the course of a few pages in the now-legendary Lost and the Damned sourcebook, Warhammer history was forged forever, birthing one of the Horus Heresy’s most iconic images – the Emperor, Sanguinius and Horus on the bridge of the Vengeful Spirit.
28 years after he was first named in print, Sanguinius is being brought to life with a model of his own.
Sanguinius, in many ways, embodies the sacrifice and tragedy of the Horus Heresy – a symbol of purity, justice and hope whose death would fundamentally shake the Imperium forever.
To bring this character to life in miniature form is a monumental task, the fulfilment of decades of art and lore in one definitive representation.
Now, we’re incredibly proud to reveal a model years in the making.
Warlike, elegant and dynamic, Sanguinius is a stunning addition to the Horus Heresy Character Series. This is an instantly eye-catching miniature that’s both a fantastic gaming piece for the Horus Heresy and an incredible collector’s item.
Like other Primarchs, Sanguinius will be available as part of the Horus Heresy Character Series. However, unlike his brothers, there will be two versions available. The already impressive Character Series version (above), and a special edition of the model that features an extraordinary display base. Both versions will be available to buy at the Horus Heresy Weekender first. A little while later, the special edition will be available online for a limited time, and at future shows, meaning everyone has a chance to get their hands on one. The Character Series version will join the other Primarchs on the Forge World website soon.
