Thanks Skypotato, I've always meant to do an updated Magnus but never got around to it.

I can't wait for the GW model.

An epic tragedy of loyalty, betrayal, and lies. A portrait of fate's cruelty.

His back was broken. Magnus was never a true space marine, Russ defeated him in combat, he should have acce3pted his fate. Instead, he doomed his entuire chapter to the Rubric, why couldn't you just leave sorcery alone Magnus? You projected yourself, astral telepathy was legal and in use....

Awesome picture.

You're surely aware, dude, that Magnus had a Legion behind his back... First, he accepted his fate, that's why he dropped the defences of Prospero. Only when the Wolfes attacked did he raise arms against them. When they fought, he nearly destroyed Russ twice, once via his glaive, second by his powers, but Russ lashed out blindly and hit his one eye, finishing of Magnus' powers. That allowed him to seize the minute, to lift Magnus off his feet and to break his back. Neither of them wanted this, Magnus was not willing to sacrifice his entire legion for a mistake, and Russ was reluctant to kill a brother primarch again...
But chaos orchestrated this downfall since centuries, that was why the chaos gods wanted the right eye of Magnus as a price for his legion.

I like that you made him with one of the eyes and not just a single eye in the middle of his face. This is most fluff wise. Although it seems way too much madness for him. I've always thought him to be powerful but elegant in some way as well as stoic. He is a mage and not a savage berserker after all.

in retrospect it does look like he has a lot of power though I was trying to use the warp as a background, but I know what you mean I've imagined him as a good guy who's shit out of luck
