- "Stood from horizon to horizon, filling the air with their shrieks, gibbers and howls of blood. Their battle banner strained in the coppery wind that blew across their ranks. It was a banner of deepest, darkest red, with but a single rune and a legend of simple devotion: Blood for the Blood God. At some secret signal all fell silent, and then came a single shriek of dark and bloody loyalty, a pact of hate and death. It echoed from leathered skins, and grew to shake the clouds. And far above the Daemon's ranks, there was an answering roar of bloody approval, torn from Khorne's brazen throat."
- —Tome of Blood[2a]
The Bloodcrushers of Khorne, known also as Soulcrushers, the Feet of Khorne, or even Juggers, are the most favoured of all Bloodletters. Bloodcrushers are Khorne’s shock cavalry, a deadly combination of battle-frenzied Bloodletter and the unstoppable crushing mass of a Juggernaut of Khorne. When the daemonic legions go to war, bellowing hordes of Bloodcrushers stampede across the battlefield, trampling Khorne’s foes into unrecognisable pulp.[1a]
When battle begins, Bloodcrushers relentlessly hurl themselves at the strongest point of an enemy’s lines. Here they hack, maim and gore their way through the strongest troops the foe can muster, exulting Khorne’s name with savage joy for each enemy slain. After this initial charge, the Bloodcrushers become totally overwhelmed by their burning need to claim yet more skulls for the Blood God. The Daemons often quarrel at this point, with both Bloodletter and Juggernaut trying to charge towards a different chosen foe. Such contests of wills are commonly brief. The need to spill blood overwhelms any attempt at rational selection, and sends the Bloodcrushers rampaging towards the nearest foe.[1a]
