Are the Primarchs psykers? I mean, the Emperor is a uber-psyker and the Primarchs are made from his genetic material, so did the Emperor take out the psyker gene or are the Primarchs uber-psykers themselves?

I would say that some are, and some arnt. Or they are not that good, because in order for there to be Librarians wouldn't there have to be some psyker stuff in the Geneseed? That said, I would, personally, think that the Primarch of the 1000 Sons would be.

I think they all are to varying degrees. Sanguinius and the Thousand Son's Primarch both psychically witnessed their own deaths but they were also the most powerful pskers of the Astartes.

Well, Librarians are noted as being psykers before they even start their Space Marine training, so I don't think it would necessarily be in the gene-seed.

But sanguinius wasn't really a psyker all he could do was tell the future. The only 'true' psykers out the primarchs were horus and the thousand sons primarch.

Konrad Curze of the Night Lords was the one who foresaw his own demise.
Sanguinius and Angron may have communicated telepathically during one of the lulls in the Siege of the Emperor's Palace, but it's not certain.

BTW, the psyker stuff isn't in the geneseed (at least not in most chapters/legions). Librarians are created by implanting geneseed into people who are already psykers.

No, sanguinius saw his demise before Horus turned, he knew everything that was going to happen.

You sound like you dont got your sources right, lest you have a source, we wont belive that sanginius saw this ahead, Magnus was the one who knew what was going to happen.

Actually, according to the Index Astartes articles, Curze did foresee his own demise, as one of his many dark prophetic visions. Magnus prophesied the fall of Horus but did not see how the warning he sent to the Emperor would bring about the downfall of his chapter. As for the primarchs, they could best be classified as mutants. For some this was physical, for some it was physchic and for others it might have been something less noteable. This idea, especially about the more subtle and sinister affects, is presented in the novel Angels of Darkness.
