Blood for the Blood God: Bloodthirster Details



Even though we saw leaks revealing the stats, point costs, etc for each of the Bloodthirsters, a lot of what was there was hard to read or hazy from the images. Now we have a little bit better information regarding the three new Bloodthirsters for Warhammer Fantasy. According to the source, there are no rules included for 40k.


Please remember that these are rumors still at this point. They are from a good source, and from the leaks we saw before where parts of this were revealed, the information seems to match up.

  1. Insenate Rage looks like it's aiming to be a character killer. It's just a shame it has a great weapon, Initiative 9 is great.

    1. Actually disregard that, it's more a monster hunter. Wrath of Khorne is the character killer.

    2. just means your going to buy daemonic gifts and get rid of the great weapon

    6. That's not helpful...

    7. C'mon, you're being ignorant!

  2. Insenate rage just give him a Gift and default to a magic weapon and bam problem solved. Eternal blade combined with HKB makes him a monster!

  3. so they're not giving 40k stats for these things? seems a bit odd, given that 40k chaos players would proably be all for a super blood thirster

    1. They might still do that later.
      Like in a demons dex that makes golkin & others & 3 BT Versions 40k available.
      Or they might just have fun trolling Chaos players in 40k?

    2. His new Fantasy WS/BS/S/T/W/I/LD appear to match his current 40K stats, so that should be good enough.

      Delete
    3. The stats between fantasy and 40k are already identical J.

      Delete
    4. There are already stats for Bloodthirsters in 40k that don't need changing. This kit is certainly a much better option than the old 2nd ed piece of crap metal/Finecast one (which never looked good), while also being far cheaper than the FW one (and arguably more contemporary looking anyway), so it's not like it is useless to 40k players.

      Let the named guys stand alone in Fantasy.

    5. Far too impressive a model for the 40k Bloodthirster rules.

      Larger size means it'll just die to bolters, shuriken nonsense, or Fire Warriors more easily.

      Delete
    6. A real khorne player would never say such girly things...

      Delete
    7. Yeah we can use him as a stand in and that's good enough for me and my 20 Zerkers with a landraider. All I need is a couple helldrakes to complete me army now

    8. Too bad in 40k, bloodthirsters are kind of awful.

    10. Haha, of course one wouldn't. A real Khorne player apparently wants to lose his token unit without inflicting any casualties.

    11. I'm disappointed in how they haven't buffed the stats of either these or the Vermin Lords considering just how truly monstrous the new things like Mortarch's are or Glotkin with their combined stat profiles.

    1. Nah, this Bloodthirster was elected to Congress :-D

  5. I'm curious if they will include a round base with the kit? Anyone seen any info about that? Are these replacing the Finecast BT kit or are they a distinct, fantasy only box?

    I don't see why they would update the BT's rules for 40k though

    1. I'm sure the next iteration of Codex Chaos Daemons will cover all the options for the new Bloodthirster. It makes me excited to see what they might do for the plastic Lord of Change.

    2. My bet is on round base only. Yep. Putting it out there.

      Delete
    3. My bet is that as it has wings it has no base ;-)

  6. It would be nice to know how tall this model is. Glottkin, for example is 10cm to his head, then another 5 or so to the top of the spikes.

    In the leaked pictures the Thirster stands about twice the height of a cavalry model (in one picture) then in another seems about the same height.

  7. insensate rage is exactly the same as the one in the regular daemons army book
