Amongst some new miniatures, I received a box of bloodcrushers of Khorne for Christmas. These guys are awesome! After spending a long time pinning and gluing my metal herald of Khorne together, these plastic bloodcrushers are simply a breeze to put together!
The top tip about putting these beasts together is to follow the instructions. Seriously! The three bloodcrushers that one can build out of the boxed set are not entirely interchangable. Having said that, there are ways to customize the bloodcrushers since there are a variety of heads available (both juggernauts and bloodletters) as well as a variety of juggernaut necklace chains, plus a small selection of skulls on chains to add extra ornaments to the bloodcrusher.
I intend to add a bit of scenery to the base of my bloodcrushers. Hence I intend to pin the rear legs of the bloodcrusher to the base. One of the main reasons for this is that the front paws (feet? hooves?) of the juggernaut are raised off the ground on all of the models. Pinning the rear legs to the base therefore adds a great deal of stability to the build and will enable me to insert a few neat looking additions to the base ... but that's a story for another day.
