Blood for the Blood God
Games Workshop is seeing red. They’ve started taking pre-orders for their new Khorne Bloodthirster mini for Warhammer Fantasy. One of the most iconic demons of the Warhammer world got itself a resculpt. Go check it out.
From the post:
Bloodthirsters are the mightiest of Khorne’s daemons, the fury of war given terrible form. Every one of these towering beasts is the equal of an entire mortal army.
This multi-part plastic kit allows you to make any one of three specific types of Bloodthirster: the Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirster, the Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage, or the Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury.
The Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirster is armed with a wrathaxe – a double-headed axe that bears two equal-sized blades – and a bloodflail. The head is designed to represent the classic Bloodthirster hounds face, framed with the Khorne icon.
The Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage is armed with an enormous double-handed axe. His head has a fanged maw with a forked tongue protruding between the teeth, and there are four horns atop his head.
The Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury is armed with an axe – a double-headed version with two different sized blades – and a long whip. As with the other Bloodthirsters there is a specific head for this variant; the most gruesomely skull-like of the three.
Whichever variant you choose to build, the model is absolutely covered in the iconography of Khorne, from the weapons, through to the pair of wings and armour detailing. There is a choice of two sets of legs, either running or leaping atop flames. There are three different torso fronts, two designs of belly plates, two choices of loincloth and the option of adding armour plates to the legs and torso should you wish. All in all, this model is a total monster, in every sense of the word.
The Khorne Bloodthirster has 80 components and is supplied with a 60x100mm monster base and a large oval base.
