“All gods are dead – except the God of War”.
Phrase repeatedly found carved into the flesh of the loyalist dead, Isstvan V Dropsite Massacre war zone.
From Forgeworld’s The Horus Heresy: Massacre Khorne; now there’s a chap who knows a thing or two about demonic steeds. He wouldn’t be seen dead allowing his followers to ride into battle on giant blow-flies (frankly unhygienic), multi-breasted fish-horses that exhale intoxicating musk (utterly impractical) or disks of energy accompanied by schools of flying sting-rays (just plain weird). That sort of carry on makes him REALLY ANGRY! Far better, really, to go to war mounted on a huge, bloodthirsty mechanical rhinoceros.I recently picked up the Skull Cannon of Khorne, having been impressed by it as soon as I saw it. What more could any chaos fan want than a sentient artillery piece that’s prone to devouring people? My only complaint is that the gun is rather piddly but that’s a minor point. As it happens I’ve yet to get it assembled, let alone painted, but I did built the Herald that comes with it – unused if you don’t build the kit as a blood throne, and mounted it on a juggernaught I had left over from an abandoned project. Here’s the result, Zakhrath; the Talon of Fury, ready to go and kill in the Blood God’s name!
