The teaser images earlier in the week were on the money. Skarbrand is going up for pre-order over on the Games Workshop website for Warhammer 40,000. The slaughterer of millions and exiled Bloodthirster of Khorne is going to be stepping into battle once more in Age of Sigmar too…
Blood & Skulls
He is quite the impressive looking Bloodthirster I think even if others have said they don’t particularly like him. I like what they’ve done with his ripped and tattered wings and the axes he’s holding look very dangerous indeed.
I like that they’ve also given him quite the impressive beard which I always appreciate. On close inspection of his face and the rest of the model while it looks like a bit of a mess and busy it is actually incredibly well detailed.
Rules wise he is a dangerous foe to face in Warhammer 40,000 with a special rule that gives him a bellowing roar that actually hurts you. You won’t be able to check out his other rules however until you break open a copy of White Dwarf and have a read.
His incarnation in Age of Sigmar also has some pretty devastating rules…
His roar rules carry over allowing him to boil the blood within his foes with a bellow but his real power comes in the fuelling of his rage. The amount of damage he does and the attacks he makes rise with the amount of wounds he has suffered. He also goes ballistic when he hasn’t fought anything at all.
Other options are also open to him at different levels of rage giving him a chance to re-roll charge distances and wound rolls for example. You can find out more HERE via his Warscroll.
What do you think of him as a big new beastie for you to add to your Daemon army?
Drop your thoughts below…
