"Vecteek couldn’t come. So I came instead. You have called and I have answered. You sought the Harbinger of Doom. I am he, little sorcerer. I am your Doom. I am Skarbrand. I am your death..."

—Skarbrand, summoned forth by the foolishness of Grey Seer Thanquol











"I will rip the bones from your body and leave your skin to rot! But your skull I will give to the skull-god, and it will be one among the multitude"

—Skarbrand, The Exiled One







"Run, fleshing! You cannot hide!"

—Skarbrand, during the Battle of Karak Angkul

    IMO, basing on his lore, Skarbrand should be the DLC-FLC LL...for (Monogod) Khorne's roster, obviously.

    I'd like to see mah boi U'zhul The Skulltaker and both Valkia or Arbaal as the 2 core-Khorne-LLs~

    I'm looking forward to DoC, they'll be great.

    I'm pretty meh on Skarbrand though, he's devoid of personality.

    And hasn't this thread been posted before?

    Skarbrand and Bloothirsters = Balrog from LOTR. Nobody hates Balrog!

    So hard for me to decide what chaos characters I am excited for most. It keeps fluctuating based on which gods I am most in favor of moment to moment... I feel like a Norscan LL.

    Purely on the 4 greater daemon characters that are in the limelight.....
    1. Skarbrand
    2. Kairos
    3. N'Kari
    4. Ku'gath

    When everything in the freaking roster is Balrog variants with (literally) no personality it becomes dull, boring and repetitive.


    Khorne is the worst chaos god.

    I adore Balrogs.

    Therefore I hate Bloodthirsters. Bloodthirsters are an embarrassment in comparison.

    All the gods need each other, they were all designed to work together after all. Khorne needs the others probably the most as he doesn't bring anything really new to the table. Khorne is war and rage, but all the others bring war.

    Skarbrand represents this, he literally has no personality. That's his actual gimmick; no personality, just rage.

    Dual axe bloodthister, yes ofc. Skarbrand good option for monogod LL.

    I realy tired from fight only vs WoC during chaos invasion. That why i so want monogods. I want a 5 races (maybe Beastmen too but meh) that invasion onto whole world.

    I’ll gladly take Skarbrand but I’m not kidding myself, Khorne and his Daemons are so very, very generic. I struggle to find a single sort of daemon for Khorne or indeed a character associated with him that I even remotely like. That is why I love the Daemons of the Changer of Ways. They aren’t what you’d normally think of when it comes to daemons and the multicoloured hosts of Tzeentch put a bit of absurd colour on the canvas of Warhammer daemonhood.

    You are right there, I mean I will probably enjoy a bit of bloodthirster action but at the end of the day there isn't much else to Khorne. Cannot wait for Nurgle and Slaanesh myself, the Unclean One and Keeper will probably be extremely fun to use.
  • Vanilla_GorillaVanilla_Gorilla Posts: 13,404Registered Users
    I actually get Khorne a lot more than most other folk. In my last bout I was in the warmup area yelling in rage, so I get that bit.... it's just boring. Khorne would be interesting if he was more a neutral force, but he's straight evil so he's just not.

    In terms of placement Skarbrand is a big bad Greater Demon. He makes sense as a DoC LL. For any potential Monogod LL I'd go with Valkia and/or Skulltaker

    you realize that the original description of a balrog was man-sized, right? and that balrogs weren't described as looking like they did in the movie at all. bloodthirsters came after balrogs, but before the movie balrogs.

    Yes, I knew about them before the film, in fact I think I prefer the book's more mysterious take on the things (not that the movie had much of a choice, I suppose). Though "man sized" might not be quite correct, the thing was big. Not nearly as big as the movie version, but clearly larger than your average human. Gothmog was known to have troll bodyguards so presumably he was at least about that size. We know they had a fiery "mane". We know that they seemed like they maybe might have had wings (of shadow). We know they were wreathed in flame when they so wished, but almost oily when immersed in water. They had whips of flame (which caused quite some consternation amongst the Noldor) and swords of flame, though Gothmog used a black axe. Magic was as known to them as it was to Gandalf (the Grey at least), for when Gandalf attempted a shutting spell the Balrog seized the rings on the other side of the door and the counterspell it used was so strong that the door shattered. They are hard creatures to pin down, and certainly fit the idea of a primeval horror well enough.

    A Bloodthirster is a big red demon with axes and/or a whip. They're angry and good at killing things. Whoop de doo.

    I'll admit to not being sure what would happen if a Balrog was pitted against a Bloodthirster. There is a fair chance the Khornate Daemon would win, though the comparison is a flawed idea in and of itself, but for style points I have to bet on the Balrog. Valarauko are not to be underestimated.

    I actually love big brother Khorne, the personification of the devastation.
    Kinda love how the Gods differently acts during their raids against the mortal world.

    Skarbrand is a potential #1 place LL for Khorne roster but...i would like to see U'zhul or Haargroth before.

    Yeah all the Khorne characters are the same: “so there was this guy/thing right? It got reaaaaaally angry and killed loooooads of stuff. The end.”

    If they emphasised khornes martial honour rather than him being so angry all the time there might be some space for personality. Im just imagining all the angry shouting every time i click somewhere playing them 😖

    The universe would be much more interesting with grey gods, unfortunately they're all black.

    Khorne would be great grey, but as is he's straight evil so he suffers more than any other god.

    Worship to Khorne.

    Fantasy is not very keen on Chaos Undivided characters, afaik there was only one non-retconned Undivided Demon Prince who basically went complete nuts and considered as a failed experiment of the Chaos Gods.

    What I like about 40k is actually well-written undivided Chaos legions (Iron Warriors, Alpha Legion, Night Lords, Word Bearers, etc) with some spark of originality and distinctiveness, compared to FB's "ooh we're named chaos warband\characters, so we have to be stereotypical followers of some of the 4 Gods!!!"

    They're gonna need it for all of the monogod glory.

    Still hope we get the monogods, battle of the gods would be awesome.

    Agreed, of course with Mortal followers as well each Chaos God has own unique looking Warriors and Knights, Champions and Lords, Daemonic Heralds, Spawns of Chaos and you name it. Also would be great opportunity to introduce Daemon Prince as Lord.

    Since we talk about Skarbrand, Valkia should me Mortal Legendary Lord.

    Nah, undivided just like on the TT and the lore is best.

    Skarbrand is an undivided LL. Skarbrand is from the DoC army book which is -like all chaos army books- undivided. It gives the possibility to represent all the lore (mono, duo, trio, and undivided) while monos represent a tiny slither.
