One of the most favoured of Khorne, the Exalted Deathbringers kill in order to ascend further in the glorious name of the Blood God. Every attack wrought with their hideous weaponry, every kill made, every panicking enemy slain without mercy or hesitation brings them closer to the pinnacle of bloodlust. An Exalted Deathbringer is a furious, whirling torrent of sheer violence, leaving nothing alive in its wake.

Miniature Review

For the final miniature in the box I left Redarg, the most corrupted of them all. Between the face and horns that strongly resemble Khorne and the skin tattoos on his chest and back he barely looks human.

Once again he is equipped with an enormous weapon and despite his pose being static it is very menacing. Something I've really enjoyed with this box is each miniature could easily pose as a hero of a warband and are certainly not just rank and file troops.

Blood For The Blood God

After my last attempt I decided to play it safe and just stick with the blood effect on the weapons. I spent a bit more time applying thin stippled paint to the areas where the blood faded away, and I think it's resulted in a much more natural effect.

Basing

After gluing the miniature to the base I mixed sand with glue and applied it around their feet. Normally I apply the glue first, then sprinkle the sand on top, but this way I found you get much fresher mud look. I then base-coated it with Rhinox Hide, then applied highlights of Mournfang Brown and Steel Legion Drab, then a wash of Agrax Earthshade.

Afterwards I applied some Citadel Scorched Grass in patches as well as some Leaf Litter by Green Stuff World and gave them and the grass a final wash of Agrax Earthshade.

Roundup

I think the blood effect on the axe is the best I've managed so far. These guys were fun to experiment on and for the time I spent on them I'm happy with how they all came out. I'll have to see if I ever come back to expand this unit or even start a new army. If I do I'll defiantly go a bit more crazy with the blood effects, blood for the blood god after all!
