A Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury fighting Stormcast Eternals with fellow Daemons of Khorne

Bloodthirsters are the greatest and mightiest Daemons of the Daemons of Khorne, physical embodiments of Khorne's rage and the fury of war given form. These huge, towering creatures have a never ending thirst for blood, desiring only death and devastation and each of them equal to an entire mortal army.[2][3]

Appearance

Bloodthirsters are covered in the iconography of Khorne, seen in the weapons and the details on the wings and armour. They wear belly plates and loincloth and sometimes armour plates on the legs and torso. When they leap flames often burst from their feet.[2]

Their wings gives them the ability to fly.[1a][1b]

Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirster

Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirsters have hound faces framed with the Icon of Khorne. They wield Wrathaxes, double-headed axes with two equal-sized blade, and Bloodflails into combat.[2]

A Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage fighting a Lord of Change‎

Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage

Bloodthirsters of Insensate Rage have fanged maws and forked tongues with four horns atop their heads. They are armed with enormous double-handed axes.[2]

Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury

Bloodthirsters of Unfettered Fury have gruesome skull-like heads. They wield Mighty Axe of Khrone and barbed Lashes of Khorne into combat.[2]

These Bloodthirsters are experts at using their long, barbed whips as those that they lash, have their throats opens and flesh stripped from their bone, with those that are not are dragged closer towards the Bloodthirster. They are unsubtle leaders able to drive their fellow Khornate Daemons into their foes to rejoice in slaughter. The land beneath their stomping hooves rebels and recoils against them cracking and opening with molten rock bubbling up from deep underground, incinerating the enemies around the Bloodthirster.[1b]

Exalted Greater Daemon of Khorne

An Exalted Greater Daemons of Khorne surpasses other Khornate Daemons in size and thirst for war, being the most fury-filled. They butcher through the ranks of their enemies and leave great rives of gore in their wake. They are armed with a Mighty Axe of Khorne and a Lash of Khorne, a vicious barbed whip, forged in the fires of Khorne's forges.[3][1a]

They are very much like Bloodthirsters of Unfettered Fury, but better. When a lash entangles a opponent escape is impossible. The molten rock that comes from beneath their feet is stronger. They are better at leading fellow khornate daemons at rejoicing in slaughter.[1a]
