I'm starting a ghostly undead themed Thousand Sons force and thought about using the Nagash model as a Magnus proxy to lead them.

 

What do you think? Is the model too fantasy and not enough sci fi that it might jar with the 40k-ness of rubrics?

Will you be converting Nash to have some undead style wings? think this would look awesome and fit in with your planned theme. You could even add in a few Tzeentch screamers to mimic the new infernal master model?

I wasn't going to add wings - he's floaty enough I think - but I've never seen either Nagash nor Magnus in the flesh, so I don't know the size difference between the two.

 

My group isn't overly concerned with the minutiae, but I believe Magnus is quite a big guy. Should I put wings on him for the sake of fairness?

 

 

Just seen that Nagash is actually on a bigger base than Magnus so maybe he would be big enough.

The wings are a massive part of the model, not having them gives you a big advantage for LoS blocking terrain and being able to hide behind them easier.

 

Might be worth checking out both models in person if you can to decide :)

As Mordas says, Magnus has wings. While Nagash is taller (25cm/9.8in compared to Magnus' being slightly shorter than an Imperial Knight), Magnus' wings are about 4-6 inches in width.

 

Just using Nagash without adding anything to widen him is major modelling for advantage, even if you're not intending of such.

I'm actually planning on just this.
Nagash plus zombie dragon with some adjustments equal magnus plus vortex beast

The parts are sill on the way though

I think I'll stick with magnus.

 

To try and stick with the ghostly theme, I was thinking of doing either;

 

1) ghostly armour parts and organic parts painted normally

or

2) ghostly organic parts and armour parts painted normally

 

What do you think?

Ghostly organic parts and painted armour like a sentient magnus sized suit of armour flying around could be cool, but ghostly armour would tie in with the theme of the army.
