I have just started looking and planning a conversion for my Renegades and Heretics List that will support my Iron Warriors Company.

Now following the theme it makes seance for the Arch-Demagogue of this rable to be a Heretek Magus, But I am at a loss on how to build something to represent this important bloke.

He has a 3+ save, and FNP.. but only T3 so he isnt a marine (but close?)

Any good ideas?

How about converting a warrior priest from empire or a chaos lord from WOC? Those would be interesting conversions for an Iron Warriors company.

I had been thinking about, Warriors of Chaos Sorcerer Lord... with a head from the Scion kit, and may be a new weapon arm?

after giving it a little more thought a techpriest enginseer would make another good conversion as well. it would take some work but it would really fit with the theme for your army.

The Problem I have with the Techpriest is that is a metal model.. which makes conversions... hard. But I could just paint up as a member of the Iron Warriors and it shouldn't look too bad.

I'm sure u can get rid of any imperial or mechanicus iconography and greenstuff or paint chaos iconography or, better yet, attempt to use some bits off of a warpsmith or dark apostle.

The Mechanicus Iconography isn't a huge issue.. paint up the skull in a strong silver and dont highlight the cog and it works...

What size do you want him to be? Take a look at the Inquisition range there are several armored ones that could be bashed to fit the role, also fantasy has some great bits as well.
I've got an old school sorcerer in hooded robe I'm converting for my warband. Cultists or necromunda.

I'd personally use any powered armored bits. 3+ and T4 is an MEQ. Keeping him on a 25mm base instead of a 32mm will keep him differentiated from any chaos marines you have.

My inspiration for this is drawn from the power armored inquisitor models.

That was my original thought before I decided to build a IW army was to have a Rouge Inquistor as the head of my Renegade force (and use the Heretek Magus as a counts as)... but going with Iron Warriors, the Heretek, is more flavorful.
