Volcano cannon is 3d3 shots hitting on 4s, wounding on 2s, negating his armor but running up against his 4++ reroll 1s, and dealing 2d6 damage to his 18 wounds. So you're looking on average at six shots, three hits, 2-3 wounds, more or less one of those getting through his invuln (assuming he didn't buff it) and dealing under half of his wounds on average. Of course, if you take four lascannons your chances of killing the giant parrot go up considerably, and either way the Shadowsword's range is significantly higher than Magnus'.

If he gets in range, which he usually can, Magnus deals 7 attacks hitting on 2 rerollable, wounding on 2s, ignoring its save and dealing 3 damage each, for a likely total of 21 out of the SS's 26 wounds. He can then Smite for an average of 5-ish mortal wounds, finishing it off.

Volatile matchup, if the Shadowswrod goes first it has a very good chance of one shotting Magnus, if Magnus goes first (and is in range) it's fucked. Pure mathhammer of course, before anyone spergs out on that.
