Converting a Heretek Magus, Help needed.

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?

Hmm I was thinking this guy actually (the guy with the arms out to the sides), but I'm guessing he's a bit too little armored?

He is a little too unarmored, and To Be honest I would rather kit-bash than order from Forgeworld. Beeing based out of the USA it can be a pain to get my hands on it.
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...
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.
