Does anyone know where I can find an assembly directions page for this model? My box didn’t come with any, and I REALLY don’t want to. The Blood Slaughterer, also known as the Blood Slaughterer of Khorne, is a large, gore-splattered Daemon Engine made of brass and black iron that is. DO NOT post full rules quotes from the BRB or Codexs, as we do not want any The blood slaughterer is going to slaughter your bloody.

The Brazen beasts, mechanical mayhem, daemonic destroyers of the Khorne Daemonkin! Today is all about the Hellforged Hunting Pack Formation! In this installment of Tactica Khorne Daemonkin I will be discussing the one of the Formations available to the Khorne Daemonkin and ways in which I feel it can be used to its utmost potential! I will do a separate article for each Formation so I can go into detail on army composition and tactics execution.
This is a rippa of a formation! Not only are there no crappy tax units but the units included are some of our strongest! Add the formation bonus on top and you have one scary army! Follow the Alpha Engine, on any turn that the Brass Scorpion makes a successful charge all units in the formation may re-roll thier charge range, wasted on Maulerfiends which have fleet but invaluable on other units.

Just make sure you charge with the Scorpion first each turn so you do not miss out on this benefit. Swift and Bloody Vengeance, this rule is fantastic! This means, in true Daemonkin style, the more your units die, the stronger they become! Add the formation wide Rage and Blood tithe boosts and we are talking Maulerfiends with up to 10 attacks!
Rues guy is a true beast, not cheap coming in at points but he can put some serious hurt and is well worth it in my opinion. Lets take a look at what he can do…. His invulnerable be boosted by allied Grimour or cursed earth too. Ranged attacks are not to be forgotten, remember being a superheavy he can target multiple units.
Get this guy into your enemy lines and watch him wreck up the place! Just remember you must fire at least 1 weapon at the unit you plan to charge, this will probably be one of the Hellmaw cannons. The Defiler is a very strong and versatile unit but I feel he is overcosted and outclassed by his daemonic brethren.
Sorry crab man but you are not invited. This guy is a horrible match for this formation, Helrakes are bliod strong units but in this formation they do not gain a single benefit.
Are Khorne Blood Slaughterers any good?
If you need a template weapon you are much better off adding the Soul Grinder as it brings a template, benefits from the formations rage, benefits from re-roll charge range and benefits from the additional attacks. Now here is a unit that most certainly IS invited, these rjles are extremely fast and when equipped with lasher tendrils are also damn near un killable in combat!
These guys are also a great way to protect slxughterer Brass Scorpion against powerful combat units, lets use an imperial knight as an example. Alternatively if you charge a Maulerfiend in to support your scorpion you reduce the Knight to a single attack!
Trust me, Maulerfiends have got your back bro!
Normally I am dead against these guys, I find them to be a tad too expensive for what they achieve on the battlefield and feel they are simply outclassed by the other choices in the codex, however, in this formation I think they really work. Sure they get little to no benefit from any of the formations rules but they do provide substantial fire support and back field objective control that no other units in this formation can provide.
Sure the Soul Grinder can take a mini battle cannon that almost alway misses but this guy can put out 8 strength 8 shots making him formidable at taking out fliers or light vehicles, alternatively for an extra 25pts you can upgrade him to put out 3 S8 Ap2 blasts considering how much high strength Ap2 combat you have I would recommend the Hades Autocannon.
If you are taking this formation on its own I would seriously consider adding one or two of these guys to hold your backfield while your scorpion takes the fight to the enemy. These are extremely versatile units that have a variety of loadouts. I did an in depth analysis of Soul Granders in part 3 of this series, remember when using them in this formation that they can deep strike and benefit from every rule in this formation. Making them much more intense in close combat. I recommend giving them Warp Gaze and deep striking so you can get into combat asap, alternatively give them no upgrades and Run!
These guys are grouse! They are pts and can be taken in units of 3 usually but in this formation they must run solo. Ranged attacks come in the form of a 5pt upgrade called the impaler, which in my opinion is an absolute must. My favourite use is risky deep strike to get nice and close, then drag em in and get the charge the turn you arrive! You cannot declare a charge the turn you arrive, but the impaler rule over rides this as you simply count as having charged.
These guys are most certainly welcome to the party! Just keep in mind thier special rule Blind Fury, that forces you to move towards the closest enemy where possible, this can be painful and makes Blood Slaughterers practically useless for objective capping. Also while on the topic of the Blood Slaughterer, if you want to see a speed painting turorial on how to get one painted in under 1 hour head over to my YouTube channel! Last but most certainly not least is the Decimator!
He is not cheap coming in at pts plus upgrades, but he is pretty nasty! Lets break him down…. Place him as close to his original position as possible as if he had just arrived from deep strike. With weapons and mobility restored and D3 hull points! On a roll of 1 he is destroyed and on a roll of he remains and we roll again next turn.
Blood Slaughterer of Khorne
For ranged firepower this guys has a plethora of options, he comes standard with 2 siege claws with built in heavy flamers and can swap them blod for the following:.
This weapon cannot be fired if the Decimator moves and only 1 can taken per Decimator. While the idea of S10 Ap1 large blast sounds exciting I much prefer the other options.
Personally as a balls to the walls Khornate Combat lunatic my favourite loadout is the standard with 2 siege claws with inbuilt Heavy Flamers. Thats slauhhterer pretty easy 10 attacks all at S8 Ap2 with Shred. This loadout is your anti horde and anti transport. If he inflicts a penetrating hit on a transport the unit inside suffers 2D6 Heavy-flamer hits! And if it is open topped they likely slaughtefer 2D6 In the shooting phase too!
This guy is an Ork or Dark Eldar players worst nightmare. Thanks again for tuning in! Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for the next instalment of Tactica: Search anything and hit enter. Crimson Fists Rules Leaked. December 29th — Imperial Knights Dethroned.
