    Slaves to Darkness : Khorne Demonic Legion

    The Bloodthirsters are the most favored servants of Khorne, and the greatest of his Chaos Champîons may aspire to joining their ranks. They exist purely for combat and combat alone. Their bloodlust extends far beyond mortal comprehension, and they will attack everything within their reach with terrific ferocity. They do not know fear, other then of Khorne, and act regardless of the cost or consequences, although the usual consequences are death for whoever or whatever they face. Their immense pride in theur fighting abilities rarely permits them to call upon allies or servants, and they usually rely only upon thei own strength and skill.

    The Bloodthirsters stand taller than a man, and are humanoid, with rangy , muscular build, faces like horned dogs, bestial legs ending an claw-studded hooves and large, togh membranous wings. Their hides are coverd with gore-flecked crimson fur, their wings are mottled black and crimson, their eyes are milky white without visible iris or pupil and their horns and claws have the apearence of blackened iron. Their Chaos Armour is coloured in keeping with Khorne's own hues of black, and red. The Bloodthirsters wield great axes, often in conjunction with whip. (Slaves to Darkness book)

    This model is sculpted by Drew Day Williams from Satyr Studio. The best one inspired by Tony Ackland artwork. But the model below isn't the original model selled by him, it's an enlarged version (143%) in resin, now 60mm from base to the eyes.

      1. Hi David, Indeed, the original model was scan and printed in a larger version.

      2. That is a great idea. I imagine it would be problematic if you didn't own your own metal mini.....but this would be 'fair use' in my country (I think).

    2. Wonderful model from Williams, which we would have liked to purchase, but which we missed by a few days' delay as it was a limited edition - apart from the very high shipping costs to Europe. We too are curious about how you got your scaled demon. Your painting certainly brings it out to the fullest, but compared to the book description we noticed a difference in the colour of its fur (from crimson to brown) and of its eyes (from white to red). Did you consider the original colour scheme or did you immediately opt for the one shown here?

    3. Hi Rodor, I painted without consideration of the physical description From StD book. That's my own version. Regarding the scale up, I alreday answered to David :)
