This Old Bloodthrister

Kylar The Destructor, my Khornate Daemon Prince of course started out life as a imposing Bloodthrister in 2nd & 3rd Edition. Then the really huge and imposing Bloodthrister came out and this figure went to the sidelines for a short time. I had intended to make a Daemon Prince for my World Eaters but there was only that really lame, small metal miniature. As I was painting the new Bloodthister the obvious idea occurred to me; make the old greater daemon into a daemon prince. I swapped out the whip for a  homemade halberd/war-fork thingie, put him on a round 40mm base, add a new paint job and Kylar was (re)created. I don't have any pics of the "before" but I am still happy with the "after". I have been tempted to make a new version of Kylar out of the current plastic daemon prince kit, but for now, I'm sticking with the heavy lead version.

Blood for the Blood God!


  1. Love that model. Have a couple myself. Great to see him.

  2. I've got one of the variant bodies from that model that I found in the bitz bins years ago. I've toyed with building a demon prince out of it as well. I wonder how different it would look with some leftover plastic parts...?
