Magnus the Reddish-Black

I present you today the biggest model I’ve ever finished painting, of which I’m very proud of, a conversion of Magnus the Red!


This has been a long and time-consuming project, but the base model is awesome and I enjoyed a lot converting and painting it, though it will be a while untill I dare paint something of this size again!

Even though I wasn’t too sure about him when I first saw his rules of 8th ed because of the Psychic nerf he has suffered, I can now assure you (after several test games) that he’s a beast capable of killing even the thoughest enemies in CC with an assistance of his enhanced Smite. Seriously, the other day I killed an Imperial Knight in turn one using him alone.

And now that he’s finished I will try to use him even more (to my opponents disgrace…), I really like using good looking models in my games, and I believe him to be the coolest I’ve ever painted.

If you prefer to see him in a video (with a 360° rotatory look) I did a quick thing here.

Next I’ll be working on some Chaos Space Marines that I converted using AoS Chaos Warriors bodies, which you can see in my Instagrma account. I must be fast though, I have to finish them before the month ends as I vowed them for the August Arena in the Bolter and Chainsword forum!

  1. Your work on this figure is astonishing ! I love the character but the original figure’s head is ugly and the pose a little weird. With this pose and the other changes you did on it (face, replacing the nipples horns,etc), the figure is nearly perfect !

    I’m less fond of the paint job. Do you have an Instagram account or something like this to show your other works ?


    1. Thanks a lot for the kind compliments, I do have an Instagram account which you can find at the lower part of this site or by searching for The_Grimdark_Harvest. The paint job isn’t as good as I think I could do it now, but I think it’s better to move on to new projects than keep repainting old ones.
