Millennia ago the warriors of Squad Kadrax followed the Lord of Claws out of the ashes of Skalathrax and away from the ruins of the World Eaters legion. Down the long centuries since they have sought for nothing but to heap skulls at Khorne’s throne. The first Lord of Claws has long since wasted into spawndom, blubber-mad and mewling its blind spite, and the man who claimed his throne is a more subtle master – though no less savage for all that. The Kadraxi care not; like their bloody god they seek only battle.
This will be the last Khorne update for a little while. Word on the street is a Black Crusade is coming, and when it arrives I want to be ready for it. Before I am however I want to clear a few other projects from my painting desk, most importantly the unruly mob of Orks who’ve been waiting in the corner for quite some time. Before it’s their turn though there’s still on more addition required to join my berserkers – a champion to lead the third squad.
Of course that mace is much too big to wield one handed and just waving it around like a maniac will only end up with him injuring himself – probably before he gets the chance to harm his comrades and certainly before he gets anywhere near the enemy. This time however the rule of cool wins out!
Here’s a group shot of Squad Kadrax so far (click it to see a bigger image). In time I’ll be adding three more members to get the numbers up to eight but for now the squad is complete. And here’s the three champions of my berserker squads together. Standing next to his brothers the new boy looks like a right short-arse – mostly because I didn’t want to give him any horns or trophy banners that would stick up and foul that flailing chain.And, because I forgot to do this in the last post, here’s the three icon bearers enjoying their own little group shot.But wait – there’s more. I may be planning to tackle some different projects for now but that doesn’t mean I’m abandoning the Blood God long term. As soon as I saw the huge Khornate sigil carried by the Bloodsecrator in the Age of Sigmar starter set I knew I wanted to use it somewhere in my collection. Trouble is it’s just too big for any normal warrior, even a space marine, to carry. Time to call in an abhuman and build myself a second Ogren berserker.As I’m sure you know by now, comments and feedback are extremely welcome so if you have an opinion you’re burning to share get it in the comment’s box. Until then – Blood for the Blood God and all that!
