While this is not a lot of information on this new detachment from Codex: Khorne Daemonkin, this weeks White Dwarf gives an interesting look at just what it is supposed to do. Its called a Bloodhost Detachment, and brings with it multiple Bloodthirsters with more in the waiting as the Blood Tithe grows during the game. Lets take a look at the latest information drop from this weekends White Dwarf.

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
From WD-
A Blood Host Detachment (the force organization chart in the codex) allows you to field two Bloodthirsters in your army. Also you get more as they can be summoned from the Blood Tithe.

The Blood Tithe is a special rule that allows you to gain Blood Tithe pts every time you kill or lose a unit.

Expending Blood Tithe pts gets you abilities which are on the 8 Blood God cards from the datacards set. The first one which is shown in the mag, is Infernal Contempt- which costs 1 Blood Tithe pt and grants all friendly units with the Blood from the Blood God special rule to gain Adamantium Will until the start of your next turn.

You can spend your points once a turn to summon some daemons or give abilities to your units

8 Points you will get a Bloodthirster for free.

Oh... that sounds good.

So time for the Spam of Cheap units of Mutants! Kill them and summon the all-mighty Barry* or let me hold all the objectives!

Manilow, White... Bloodthirsters come in many terrifying forms.

i cant quite figure out what to think about that formation...

on one hand its very deamon'ish, with th growing stronger thing, as the borders between reality and the imaterium fades..

on the other hand, its a bit of a nasty money grab... again.

have not made up my mind yet i must say

Well, structurally, Khornate daemons can't run Summoning lists, not having psykers. This goes a good way towards remedying such an issue, above and beyond "take Portalglyph, Riftbringer, and hope to roll the 'create a new unit' result on the Warp Storm" for Khornate summoning.

Or you know, it actually makes it interesting - As Mossy said above, this is the only way to summon outside of Psykers, so it fits the lore and makes for fun games.

A wee bit tired of hearing "oooh they just want my money" whenever something new gets released from GW. Not from you specifically, mind you, but they're a company that sells a product. You cannot possibly be surprised at the fact that new things are released to sell more stuff.

when i gets my hands on the book, and read the new stuff, im sure i can get into the mood and feel reality break down as the deamons advance.

and this way of using summoning is alot less "money grab" than the summoning for every psyker.

i agree with this although some don't like it at the end of the day it is a business. I live in Australia and if i let the cost of the game get to me then i would never play it. At the end of the day if you don't want to build an army using this book, then don't. then the hobby has cost you no extra. you can still use the Daemons/Chaos space marines codexes to build your chaos armies so you don't need to purchase it to continue with your armies.

me personally don't play using Korne so i won't get it. However when they do something with Tzeentch i will spend my money then.

thus the hobby is only as expensive as you want to make it.

well edited ;)

everything GW do is a "money grab" if by money grab you mean a device that ends in a sale to a customer,that is the very foundation of retail.

I dont know the ins and outs of the book, but anything that allows players more choice on what they can place on the field i think is a good thing,some GW hobbiests seriously suffer from a lack of imagination and a lack of effort when it comes to developing there own army ideas despite wanting a fluffy army,there is a culture of needing an "official" book before people will make there army,rather than just using there own initiative, even now many people will not use FW models in standard 40k.

hopefully this codex is just the start and they will produce the other three chaos gods in relatively quick succession, and if anyone in GW is listening to this make the Glottkin useable in 40k , its such an impressive model it deserves a cross over.

So it would appear this is Codex: Bloodthirster.
Well if they have broken some rules to make them useable, I guess that's a good thing.
Hoping there's some good stuff for bezerkers.
