Tell you what - the other Gods of Chaos must be getting mighty jealous of Khorne these days with the amount of love the super-agro deity has been getting.
This and last year have seen multiple Khorne releases, while Nurgle comes in at second, Tzeentch and Slaanesh don't even get in the race - in fact the new kid on the block, The Rat King, is probably up there challenging Nurgle for second place.
This week sees the preorder for The Exalted Deathbringer, a likely lad with an eye for blood and a head full of horns that would make any Beastman jealous. Speaking of which, have you noticed a distinct lack of Khorne-aligned Beastmen? Why?? Where did they go? Surely not all to Nurgle...
This week also sees Nurgle get another run, the Forge World Chaos Imperial Knight... & that's about it!
Is this worth a buy?

I have reason to believe this is what happened to Slaanesh - one wrong joke to this guy (above) and Slaanesh's finely honed athletic physique was probably ripped asunder - never to be pretty again!
That's not true, but it's a good story!
The Exalted Deathbringer is basically the stage between being one of Khorne's best fighters and the sizeable transformation into a Bloodthirster. As you can see, the growing pains are pretty unattractive!
When I first saw this figure early last week I wasn't too sure about it. It didn't scream "Khorne" to me. Sure it screamed "I have horns, can I smash your skull in", but was a bit of a departure from the usual bronze armoured champions of Khorne that have been around for years. Then when I saw him today he grew on me, like a blessing from Nurgle, and a bloom of love appeared in my heart - but when I went online and saw the sprue (below), a moment of despair grew; no alternate head/ arms/ weapons and no poseability!
Welcome to the Age of Sigmar where it's statue vs. statue. *SIGH*. It's still cool though... for a statue!
Where are the mass influx of new kits? Where is the buzz of a new army to build? It's not there!
Think you're dropped the ball on this Games Workshop.
This issue didn't grab me at all. Buy some paint instead!
