The greatest of Khorne’s servants, a physical embodiment of the Blood God’s rage and never ending thirst for blood – Bloodthirsters are huge creatures, desiring only death and devastation. Manifesting in the Mortal Realms, a Bloodthirster of this prodigious size is known as Exalted, and surpasses other Khornate Daemons in size and thirst for war.
In the grim Darkness of the 41st Millennium, the only Bloodthirster of this immense size seen by the servants of the Imperium is named as An’ggrath the Unbound, the Deathbringer and Daemon Lord of Khorne. In each of the few times he has been summoned over the 10,000 years since The Horus Heresy , An’ggrath has brought unfettered destruction to the Imperium, with countless worlds falling beneath his axe.
Armed with a mighty Axe of Khorne and vicious barbed whip, the Bloodthirster – Greater Daemon of Khorne is a towering model, standing at 24cm tall and with a wingspan of 27cm. It stands on a resin scenic base.
Rules for using this unit in games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar can be downloaded HERE. Rules for using this unit in games of Warhammer 40,000 can be found in Imperial Armour Volume Thirteen – War Machines of the Lost and the Damned.
This set contains one complete multi-part resin model. A 130mm round base is included.
One of the most heavily armed and armoured of all the Knight chassis in service, the Acastus Knight Porphyrion rivals even the Scout Titans of the Legio Titanicus in terms of size and power. Armed with weapons that can obliterate even the most heavily armoured target, it is truly a force to be reckoned with.
Taller than even the towering Cerastus Knights, the Acastus Knight Porphyrion is a dominating presence on the battlefield. The Knight’s main weapons are a pair of twin-linked Magna Lascannon, devastating weapons an order of magnitude more powerful than even the Sollex pattern Heavy Lascannon of the Mechanicum Taghmata.
Where a Knight Paladin may carry a heavy stubber as a secondary weapon, the Porphyrion is armed with a pair of autocannon which are often replaced with Lascannon when additional anti-armour firepower is necessary. It’s Ironstorm Missile Pod has a substantially larger payload than those found on more common Knights, though in battle-zones where the danger from airborne assault is apparent, this system can be replaced with powerful Helios defence missiles.
Rules for using the Acastus Knight Porphyrion in both Mechanicum Taghmata and Questoris Knights armies in Horus Heresy games can be downloaded HERE.
The Acastus Knight Porphyrion is a complete, multi-part resin kit. It includes several optional secondary weapons.
