Blood for the Blood God?
So, I finally succumbed to the will of chaos. I was torn between lizardmen and wood elves, but while waiting for the new book and miniatures, and wanting to get the web exclusive marine off the website as a present, (my bank account fast dropping and payday a LONG way off) I got myself a Champion of Khorne and some Warriors. I decided stuff it. The call of the dark gods got to me, and I like Khorne and Nurgle, so thought I'd start making some berserkers to get something simple to begin with.
They finally arrived yesterday, and after a quick trip to the post office, I was soon home, sat at my desk with supplies in hand, ready to begin trimming. Now, since I started collecting and painting, which is about 20 years ago, I have never cut myself while trimming my models. However, with knife in one hand, and Champion of Khorne in the other, I set to and managed to hack into my thumb (admittedly my fault), and blood started to spill. It was a good gouge. Finecast doesn't hold up to a knife quite like the regular models.
I finished off trimming it, and then did the warriors, which went without incident, but then it hit me. The first time I heed the call of the dark gods, and I spill blood, albeit my own, while tidying a Khorne miniature. Is this the work of the blood god himself? And is this a good omen? Does this mean I'm favoured in the eyes of one of my chosen deities? And should I scrap Nurgle altogether and just go full on Khorne? Or, should I take this as a bad sign?
