Bone Thrower - I am liking the idea of lower multiple strength shots, something a tad different. Perhaps it could be something like as standard the bones have runes that cause them to shatter in the air, raining down D3+1 S4 / S5 shots? The upgrade could then be a massive bone perv, that is a one shot with the HKB rule?
Probably S4, Armour Piercing & Killing Blow, and then Multiple Shot (3), magical shots ( could just call it something like Lesser Death Runes to separate it from the Greater Death Runes (i.e. the Heroic Killing Blow Shot). No piercings of Ranks like a "Bolth Thrower", Perhaps a Range of 36" only, and no to hit penalty for range as you already had.
That would mean, that on average (if multiple shots were fired), you'd get one S4, -2 armour save, magical, killing blow hit.
Magical Shots would help give Nagash a tactical edge over his former underlings, the vampire counts s well.. A nice way to teach them a lesson
Btw, I imagine that there must be some model making company that manufactures a two-man crewed type roman ballista out there somewhere as well.. If so, that's always a plus..
We're not supposed to be a missile heavy army, but this would keep the cost down, which would be good if a Horde Type army is the tactical "theme" that the LoN project is going for overall.
