Let me first say in my opinion which Scupltor of the Two on the Primarch project in my view should sculpt which Primarch on or suggested on the Horizon:
Leman Russ (he has already reserved this apparently, if book 4 is Inferno then he needs to be at Gamesday).
Vulkan (he worked on a lot of the Iconography in the past and has a stature comparable to Horus and Ferrus).
Perturabo (I think he will be doing Perturabo mainly due to having done Ferrus' Hammer, he may get him done quicker than 3 months as has less detail).
Curze & Corax (they duelled on Isstvan V, both will have very dynamic poses and if given the chance they could become the table toppers for another huge battlefield like Ferrus and Fulgrim. I really think he could do these flying Primarchs Justice, and get through them quick too).
Dorn (I would love to see him do a big noble Primarch).
Alpharius (Lorgars' pose was so noble I think its stature could be transferred well onto Alpharius).
Magnus the Red (I still expect to see this at Gamesday 2014. Forge World will try to have book 4 out by then and I still hedge my bets that we might see this brute for a centre piece with Russ.
Sanguinius (Lorgar had amazing detailing so I would expect the Angel to have the same, this will be a challenge for either Sculptor as his face will need to look Beatific.
Primarch 5 Was Horus the Warmaster. He was being worked on in September and a lot of time and effort was put in to make do the Arch-Traitor justice. So Simon Egan was on him for a fair old while, atleast on and off (maybe) from August to late February early March (again a supposition). This means it takes Egan around 4-6 months to do a Primarch (a highly detailed one). At the Openday he was really keeping his lips sealed about which Primarch he was working on currently, and this can be construed as a Primarch from a Forthcoming book (according to Sir Alan of Bligh; still up in the air) or to tie in with the "Amazing surprises" on 2014's Horus Heresy Weekender! (Which the Battle Bunnies are attending). All we know on which Primarch he is working on is: he has very embellished armour.
Primarch 6 Edgar Skomorowski has a Primarch ready to be released right now and we will see it on or before the Horus Heresy Weekender. Popular belief is that it is Mortarion to round off book 1s' cast. This also is backed up from the Typhon model he created (which is incredible) and the hint he gave at the end of his interview for the Typhon model. Outside candidates for me would be BOTH Corax and Curze. For instance: if he has finished Corax and is working on a second; an incredible surprise would be to see two Primarchs by the same Sculptor at one event, especially as they wear relatively unadorned armour. Would be a shame to miss the boat on the Isstvan V bandwagon and not showcase their encounter.
Simon has said his next Primarch will be previewed at the Horus Heresy Weekender, maybe as they reveal their next book project.
Primarch 7 Egan may get another Primarch out before Edgar releases his third one. I currently believe it to be Vulkan or Russ. This all depends on whether FW are to be releasing another Horus Heresy book at Gamesday. As really this will be a new setting so should have a Primarch to showcase it. I am leaning heavily towards Russ. This would give him 5-6 Months before Gamesday and considering Russ has Freki and Geri, I really think he needs all the time he can get.
Primarch 8 Magnus the Red should be on the board too. You only get one chance to impress with a new book and range Launch and Skomorowski is more than capable of doing this Primarch justice.
This would round off the year completely and very well. The Inferno book could quite possibly have a wealth of other bits such as Sisters of Silence and Custodes etc. this would also give the team a whole year to get the likes of Corax, Curze, Perturabo, Alpharius and Vulkan wrapped up. Only issue is the other characters may take another Back seat.
