Default Bloodthirster Kit sighted

There are three different heads with different types of horns and helmets. Large armoured hooves, thigh straps, regular upper body strapps and gladiator kindof armour. Super muscular, like a super ripped world's strongest man mixed with a Khorne daemon.
I guess this means Skarbrand is dead for good according to End Times, right?

Except Skarbrand has two axes and daemons can't truly die.

And it doesn't look like this kit makes him. Also, to quote -

Quote:
Skarbrand leads a vast army of daemons to Naggaroth and intecepts Malekith on a trip to see his Mother, he was then killed by Malekith when their forces met and his army defeated.
Still a headscratcher that the kit doesn't make Skarbrand, but this might be an explanation as to why.

Well, I suppose they could do with Warhammer what some other fantasy settings tend to do with demons, where if the corporeal body is slain they have some kind of spirit or essence that goes back to whatever nightmare dimension it crawled out of.

boobs. that is all.

bah, I'm 75% done a longterm scarbrand conversion, worst case it will just be a shelf model

definitely looking forward to the new bloodthirster model though.

That is actually the fluff. However given there doesn't seen to be a Skarbrand option here, "removed from Codex/Army Book" is a possibility.

If I'm honest, creatures like Greater Daemons should be the equivalent of Lords of War, and I for one am not complaining if he goes. It's likely that with their being no model for him that he's now caput in 40K as well. It doesn't need a convoluted explanation either, he was kind of shit in the first place.

Yes, my post predates yours by about 5 hours.

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?
