Since this model could be used for WFB OR 40k, it does sort of deserve it's own attention. Especially considering all that buzz about the alleged Khorne suppliment. For all we know, the Bloodthirster kit could end up not being for the End Times exclusively but as part of the overall Daemons range.

anyone else hoping it makes Be'lakor?
To be honest, I just saw Rumor, didn't see it had a topic so I posted Discussion Thread. And considering the pacing of 9th Ed thread (and that it might be maybe slightly off topic there, not that the other threads usually somehow get derailed), well...

...In other thoughts, a Be'lakor is unlikely but it would be nice considering he's still a metal/finecast model. In personal opinion, Be'lakor really should get his own kit or be an option for the Demon Prince (or some sort of Super Demon Princes, a la the Maggoth Lords/Verminlords/Mortarchs).

Yeah, at this point, all the threads relating to 9th ed sorta overlap, so this once can remain a happy thread.

For some reason, I think Be'lakor gets some page time in the next End Times books. Or at least that's what the rumours are pointing to. It would be nice to see Be'lakor get some sort of plastic model, but if he remains finecast.... well we know what that means for him. Gotrek's axe to the cranium.

I'm looking forward to this kit.

Hopefully, it'll be him fighting Gortek & Felix. Apparently this is where that subplot is going.

Then I wonder just who this Bloodthirster is. And if he's that big, then how freaking big is the Archaon kit going to be?

I doubt Archaon's going to be a big kit - they didn't re-do Karl Franz, Malekith or Tyrion for their releases and while Karl Franz is pretty new (and large, because he has a griffon the size of a house instead of a horse), the Malekith model is absolutely fucking awful and ancient, and Tyrion's certainly not getting any younger. Nah, there'll be a seperate big kit for the Archaon book; either the Bloodthirster, which would be a bit of a shame because it's unlikely they'll get two big kits and that would disprove the Van Horstmann on Baudros/Lord on Chaos Dragon kit which I really want to happen if Fantasy's going to stay happening the way we hope.

Damn, those all sound incredibly awesome. If true, I imagine I'll buy one... but damn, they'll still suck in 40k. At least Daemons are a WHFB army, too!

Archaon is supposed to be riding a dragon though. I thought it was going to be a Lord/Van Hortmann/Archaon triple kit?

Maybe that's going to be the Maggoth Lord/Mortarch equivilant, and the Bloodthirster will be the nagash/Glottkin equivilant

I'd be surprised, as Dorghar is the Steed of the Apocalypse and, I believe, one of the things that makes Archaon the Everchosen along with the Slayer of Kings, the Armour of Morkar, the obvious Crown of Domination, the Mark of Chaos Ascendant (that might be Abaddon's one, but it's basically the same), and the Eye of Sheerian. Giving him up for a dragon would be kinda weird.

I'd be pretty happy with him remaining on the steed, unless... it turns into a dragon or something like that. I'm just recalling the initial rumour we heard, which called for this kit, the dragon one, and something else.

Though, each ET release has only come with one multi-model kit, and this sounds like this is the one for ET: A

I'm not too familiar with Archaon's fluff, but if his horse is a daemon I suppose it could be "promoted" to a dragon or something, no?
