Or if the Emperor ends up with a Text-to-Speech Device...
This is Magnus in his "mortal" form, presumably cosplaying. He's got half the Wounds, half the Movement, half the Strength on his blade (which can't trigger its mortal wounds in the enemy battle round, but can do so against weaker enemies), two fewer Attacks, and he can't FLY. He does, at least, fall under the Look Out Sir threshold.
In terms of abilities, he loses his +2 bonus to Psychic tests, going down to +1 (since he's always at fewer than 10 wounds).
In terms of benefits, he replaces Gaze of Magnus with HH
's Mental Wrath, which is almost
the same, but more flexible. He also gains Phantasmal Aura; in HH
, this is a straightforward -1 to hit aura. Here, it allows him to transform certain buffs (+1 to hit, -1 to be hit, 4+ invulnerable, +1S on flame weapons, +6" range) and certain debuffs (-1 to hit, -1S on ranged weapons, can't shoot at units beyond 24", no invulnerable, MW
on a 6 each time a model moves) into a 6" aura instead of targeting them.
In exchange, he costs ~100 points less, coming in just under Guilliman.
