Honestly the only issue is the head, the rest of the armor is pretty generic looking enough to use as Fantasy armor bits.
It's the armoured flip-flops that bother me as much as the head. Zoats are a force of nature, they're like Lizardmen who are even more in touch with the natural world around them even than Wood Elves. I can just about manage the Zoat wearing a few bits of armour plating, but the footwear? It just doesn't fit. It's like putting boots on a Carnosaur.

I remember reading about this guy vs the Blood Angels years ago so I am glad that this special character is getting his own unique model. I'm not sure if Ka Bandha has ever been mentioned in Fantasy?
In defence of this model, which is now my personal favourite of all the Blood Thirster models released....
The posing, especially stance is more reserved and technical than the other Blood Thirsters, better imo reflecting the Weapon Skill 10. It's the first Blood Thirster released imo that has really captured this, while losing nothing in terms of overall ferocity. It has unique, dynamicly shaped wings which really enhance the flow and overall presentation of the model. Now I think the main GW blood Thirster kit is very impressive in terms of its options but I hate (fitting for Khorne i guess 😆) the khorne/chaos glyphs sculpted onto the top of them. Worst thing about that plastic kit imo. This model thankfully does away with that and just has magnificent, beastial Daemon wings. I prefer this armor and 4 horned head a little compared with the others. Finally...this Blood Thirster has a proper tail!
