Can you tell me everything about bloodthister??
I want to play with it and i dont know everything about him.
What is his armour save with obsidian armour?? Is it 3+??
Waiting for any posts
The Bloodthirster is one of the most powerful units in the whole game, and it's pretty straight forward as well. Just charge something and watch it crumble in front of your giant daemon. You are right on the Obsidian Armour, and as long as you have some backup and make sure you break the unit you're charging (which the Bloodthirster is an expert on) you should be fine.

BT is a killing machine, but can't do everything. Two things in my mind contribute to using one well:
You want to hit things in the flank if you can, to avoid challenges, and break things in one go. You also want to hide him from Cannons, Bolt throwers and things, it won't take long for misiles to kill him these days, esp being a large target (best example - Skink Blow pipes, look out for these!). For this reason, Furies and Hounds work well along side him, to kill such threats.
As for timing, charge too early in the front and he'll lose combat (I charged a block of Brettonians 1st turn in the front, big mistake...), charge too late and he may not do enough damage to win (I waited too long once, and it just let him get shot up), this is all trial and error, once mastered, he's almost unstopable.
He also has a few options for his gifts depending on what you want him to kill. I tend to go for Dark insanity, Immortal Fury and Collar of Khorne. With this setup, he can still kill anything he wants, through sheer amount of attacks, and has a little extra protection from magic in my mono-khorne list. If the list had more magic defense than 2 dice, I'd use armour instead.
Hope that helps.
