But man this thing is incredible. First end times miniature that I'm losing my shit over. So good. Can't wait to see the other variants.

It's about time we saw some of the greater daemons and this boy looks pretty damned impressive!

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Even if this kit is to represent specific Bloodthirsters, I don't see the harm in having this replace your old, outdated cow demons from time immemorial.

Perhaps it sounds petty or whatnot, but blocking line of sight is one of few methods we have to keep a Bloodthirster alive before it gets the charge. Perhaps it's a small price to pay for using such an amazing model, but it would also be lame to have this badass giant only be T6 and die to small-arms fire before it gets to do anything.

I'm not 100% clued in on Fantasy, but doesn't every giant monster in Fantasy have this drawback?

Because shooting in Fantasy isn't as powerful. Plus generally the only good way to deal with big monsters like that with shooting is Cannons since they can do multiple wounds and don't roll to hit like other weapons do.
