Behold the awe-inspiring arrival of Magnus the Red, as the very fabric of reality quakes beneath his descent. A towering Thousand Sons figure, born of the Emperor of Mankind, he defies logic and reason. Merely catching a glimpse of him is to risk the fragility of one’s sanity, for when the Crimson King’s piercing gaze meets yours, devastation follows in its wake.

But Magnus the Red is not confined to the ground; with mighty wings unfurled, he soars through the skies, reveling in his supernatural might and bringing untold calamity upon those who dare to oppose him. As his colossal form takes flight, the world trembles beneath his otherworldly power, and his adversaries are left in terror.
