The Battle of Castobel
The Lesser Daemons of Khorne are known as Bloodletters, and it is they who form the core of Khorne’s vast battle forces. Bloodletters are amongst the deadliest warriors in the galaxy, possessing immense strength in their sinewy limbs and savage in the ferocity of their brutal charge into battle. Their skin is the colour of blood, and the coppery scent of gore surrounds them like a shroud. Bloodletters are uncommonly disciplined daemons, able to form complex formations on the battlefield and manoeuvre for the best advantage. Such formations do not last once the Bloodletters engage the foe, however, as the daemons are too focused on competing for Khorne’s glory in the brutal frenzy of combat. Bloodletters are armed with great two-handed weapons known as hellblades. Legends claim that the souls of angry daemons form the core of the hellblades, and that each razored edge is sharpened by pure hatred. No mortal-forged armour can withstand the assault of a hellblade, and the carnage wrought by these wicked weapons has broken the wills of uncounted mortal foes over the millennia.
