The character, to deal with him first, is Skarbrand the Exiled One, the Wrathful Reaper, the Drinker of Blood who has one heck of a cool backstory.
Outright said to be An’ggrath in the Imperial Armour books. Bloodthirsters have been a staple in Warhammer and Warhammer 40k for the past twenty years. Bloodtbirster, a Bloodthirster is still nothing to take lightly.
In addition, unlike the Avatars of Khaine there is a lot more fluff of Bloodthirsters slaughtering armies and killing the populations of entire nations, so they get to show their credentials. No-one wants to face a Bloodthirster on the table. Leave them off, I did, the straps they attach to have no noticeable attachment points that stand out, and should look just fine on the finished model.
The more he is damaged the more damage he can do, which makes him a strategic play – he is a beast you want to use to draw fire. It’s not a huge deal, as I had intended to pin him to the base anyway, for greater stability.
I like the different weapon options, I find when it is on the ‘flying’ base as I believe they referred to it by, it is a little top heavy.
This is the model, and an old plastic Daemon b,oodthirster for a size reference. To put it short and sweet: Of course, even this is not simple, only this time it is not Skarbrand causing the problems. I don’t know when mine is due yet, I get all my things through my local independent retailer, who isn’t bloodfhirster in the priority list for such BIG new releases, but unless there’s extra rules for 40k Bloodthirsteer think i’ll be going with the classic build.
Here’s the link for those interested, contains separate stat-lines for each new Thirster in Blur-O-Vision, may or may not have different stats based on weapon I think the 2-hander version has 8 Strength?

At full height it’s wingtip is just below the full height of Nagash, a quite imposing model indeed. This could be actually fixed if the two battled, but Khorne himself will never allow for this no matter how tempting that would be.
They can deal out a lot of damage, and if luck is on your side they can wipe out entire units with a few swings of the axe. Within the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Mortal Realms there are three different types of Bloodthirster and one named character. bloodthorster
Unfortunately, though I’m an all-chaos player, I tend to play small games that monstrous creatures don’t show up in. The Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirsters bear some physical similarities to Flesh Hounds and Karanak, but make them look like pussycats in comparison. These were not one off Bloodthirsters, but instead they were groups, all with a different side of the same dice.
What will the average Bloodthirster get across the categories? Bloodtihrster like the Skaar Bloodwrath epitomise Chaos in such a way that just looking at them can strike fear into the hearts of enemies. On top of that there is Skarbrand, who is powerful simply because he works on an inverted logic.
This requires a lot more maths to work out, but it is an interesting concept. Where they are about poison, lust, and dark magic – Khorne is about pain.

The story of Skarbrand goes further, saying that he grew proud of his achievements and restless of Khorne, so much so that the Bloodthirster decided to turn his attention to Khorne, attacking the Lord of Murder head on. I hope that Dave will make a review of the new Bloodthirster and of the upcoming Khorne Daemonkin Book!
They are also filled with rage and generally considered the most dangerous entity in Warhammer 40, that isn’t a god or comparable to an Imperial war titan.
And both would qualify for a free shipping voucher from Forge World.
I strongly recommend you follow the instructions and attach the base at that stage, before arms and wings, as I forgot and ended up pinning him down in order to let the glue set.
Thus we’ll never know. The flail looks a bit flimsy to my eyes, but I can’t say for sure until I’ve held the kit in my hands. Regarding using the arms for other models, such as the Daemon Prince, the biggest barrier will be the shoulders. Every part of the Bloodthirster is incredibly bulky, and I doubt the parts will line up well without significant modification. If you charge into a squad and declare a challenge against the squad leader, you get hatred on all of your hits against that target.
