Fear not gentle readers! I have neither died, fallen into the Warp or been reduced to a gibbering Spawn – although I will admit to having lost momentum a little with my horde of Berserkers over the last week or so, mostly because real life has been gobbling up the time that I might otherwise have been painting. In an effort to get back on track I decided to finish off the last member of my first squad of Khorne Berserkers. You may recall that I had recently decided to split my growing horde of blood-mad warriors into two separate squads of eight men each. Squad Kadrax – the second squad -– are already well underway but before I go any further with them there’s one last model needed to round out the first squad.
Like all frustrated Warhammer fans I know that no squad is complete without a banner and to my mind there are few things as evocative of the impractically pseudo-medieval quality of 40k than warriors rallying to a flag or an icon of the gods. With that in mind I rounded out the squad with an Icon of Wrath to remind my berserkers that they battle in Khorne’s name and for His glory.
And there we have it – the Blood Beasts are complete at last and, if all goes according to plan, a second squad is soon to follow. Until then here’s a couple of group shots to keep you going.

That’s a a very nice squad there mate. Bloody, rusty, lost and grim. Nice quality photos too. Is the icon from the Bloodreavers?

Cheers! That’s right, it’s the bloodreavers banner from the starter set. I have the banner from the bloodreavers stand alone box as well… you can’t have too many banners after all…

Cracking job mate, you can’t beat a good banner… Flags for the Flag God!!

…and banners for his throne!
