Temporary Bloodletter daemons spawned by Chaos Shrines of Khorne. Data version: 2.0

These Temporary Bloodletters are spawned in two-model units by Chaos Shrines of Khorne, available to be constructed by Chaos Heretics under a Chaos Lord hero. They are similar to proper Bloodletters otherwise, but their weapon deals about 30% more damage, they cannot use Warp or Warp Shift, and they lose Dow2 energy 1611 per second, perishing when out of energy.
