I am equipping my bloodthirster with immortal fury and armor of khorne and then i am not so sure what else i should give him. Flaming sword seems nice, axe of khorne in nice but not sure i really need it with his high strength. Dark insanity seems pretty nice and the "average" is about 9 attacks which is 2 more than normal, but of course i could roll snake eyes and get 4 in a crucial round of combat... Any suggestions of some of the other equipments and experience of them especially dark insanity? thanks!
I'm going to go with Dark insanity - You've got to roll 4 or less on 2D6 to lose out compared to the BT's normal attacks; which although will happen, won't happen too often.
Give it a go, ultimately the game is played for fun. If you don't like how DI is turning out for you, change it. I know I'll be putting it through a trial period!

Personally i would use immortal fury, obsidian armour + axe of Khorne, i had considered the option you mentioned but i think it leaves him a little open against characters, characters should fear him
depends on the rest of your army. In a more or less pure korne army its about the only place to fit in a spell breaker, which can be critical equipment against some heavy magic armies.
Looking at russelt's build, I'd be very likely to take it, mostly because I face HE and VC ALOT, and I want to be able to take someone down with no problems whatsoever. That Taking Tyrion thread really swayed my build ideas :/

No, I don't have any wool.
There are very few things that can survive a round against a BT with immortal fury(there's a good reason why it shares its initials with Irrestable Force) and DI. Against anything with WS 9 or less, you will hit an average of 8 times from 9 attacks. From there, you will likely kill anything T4 or less pretty much instantly (about 7 wounds generally, so you kill things not named Tyrion or Helf "2+ re-rollable save and 4+ ward save" Gottitforthestardragon) and you'll deal 5-6 wounds to anything T5 (which will likely kill it), or 4 wounds to anything t6. That means you can take down a treeman in 2 turns on average. Or a star dragon.
So essentially, I consider DI a kind of OA of its own-> you won't care about the opponent's magic weapons because they're dead.

1) when your in combat his weapon loses its rules (so strength 4)
2) killing blow ignores regen
3) soul hunger means your going to be getting 7 hits every time which means you should get atleast one killing blow a turn
Yes, the HE guy kinda sulked because tyrion the evil daemon killed got owned, was well worth it
why so afraid of tyrion? I dont have the book with me but it seems the hype is his armor saves? what weapon does he have to make bloodthirster want to wear an OA?
I believe its +3 strength so hes actually strength 7 with a 4+ ward save, 4+ regen save and immune to fire based attacks (thanks to a HE FAQ this means if you have a firestorm blade you cant touch him).
Trust me, with a 1+ save ontop of that then dark insanity is a very bad idea, while you can kill troops Tyrion will rape your army with his bodyguard. Mind you i wouldnt say affraid is the right word just like many of the special characters you need to right equipment to deal with them.
Against tyrion: OA, Axe of khorne, soul hunger/if
Against everyone else: DI, Armor of khorne, if?
Is there anyone else I should be very cautious against? I heard something about vampire count and some popemobile?
