Khorne’s wrath made manifest

Bloodthirsters are the mightiest of Khorne’s servants, muscle-bound Daemons that descend on ragged wings from flame-wracked skies to bring slaughter and carnage to the denizens of the mortal realm.

Among their bloody ranks stands the Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirster. Tasked by Khorne to hunt down enemy champions and claim their skulls, he’s just one of the three ranks of Bloodthirster that can be built from this new plastic kit that’s now bigger, better armed and more impressive than ever before. Here’s why.

The Wrath of Khorne’s signature weapon is the Wrathaxe. This one has a handle made of skulls and a double-headed blade wrought with a brass symbol of Khorne.

In his other hand the Wrath of Khorne wields a bloodflail – a devastating meteor hammer and a symbol of his ascension to Khorne’s third host. Note the punch dagger built into the weapon’s hilt.

The Bloodthirster’s vast wings are tattered and torn, symbols of chaos pushing their way through the membrane. The Bloodthirster’s vast wings are tattered and torn, symbols of chaos pushing their way through the membrane.
The Wrath of Khorne is held aloft by a pillar of fire. But has he just leapt up from the ground, ready to take to the skies, or is he about to land? We think the former would be preferable.

Make sure you come back tomorrow when we’ll be taking a closer look at the Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage. You can also find out more about the Bloodthirsters in this week’s White Dwarf, which includes a stage-by-stage painting guide for two Bloodthirsters and full rules for using all three of them in your games of Warhammer. Don’t forget (though you’re hardly likely to) that you can use the new Bloodthirsters in Warhammer 40,000, too, using the rules presented in Codex: Chaos Daemons.
