When Khorne’s armies march to war, it’s the Bloodthirsters of Unfettered Fury that command them. Colossal Daemons all, they lead by example, charging headlong into the enemy’s ranks to spill blood and reap skulls in Khorne’s name.
Hailing from the eighth host of Khorne’s legions, a Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury is considered the lowliest of Khorne’s Greater Daemons. This is of little consolation to those who fight him, however, for a Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury can butcher an entire squad of men, tear a Tyranid monstrosity or Tau battlesuit in half or flip over a tank just as easily as his higher-ranking brothers. Indeed, the only thing stopping him ascending to a higher rank are his peers. Challenges are common (not to mention encouraged) in Khorne’s realm.
The Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury carries a barbed whip, an iconic weapon wielded by Bloodthirsters for over 20 years. The braided cord is capped by a flaming eight-pointed star, just in case the whip itself didn’t cause enough damage.
This Bloodthirster’s face appears like that of a Bloodletter, one of Khorne’s lesser Daemons. Should he rise in the Blood God’s favour, his visage may become more dog-like and bestial like that of Khorne himself.
All Bloodthirsters wear a suit of brass armour, the plates held to their flesh with barbed hooks. This Bloodthirster also wears a different chest plate to that worn by the Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirster, one of two in the kit.
This Bloodthirster has been painted with ash-black skin instead of the traditional red. You can find a painting guide for how to paint a Bloodthirster this way in White Dwarf 57, out now.
