Every wonder which creatures have which color of blood and what kind of gore is available for the different bloods colors? Having nothing better else to do, I decided to dig into it and discovered the following:
Bones & Gore:
- Red Gore has 25 models including 15 bones.
- Green Gore has 13 models including 5 bones.
- Yellow Gore has 8 models (12 if including white bones) including 0 bones (4 if including white)
- White Gore has 5 models including 4 bones.
Creatures & Blood:
- Most creatures have red blood including beholders, mind flayers, troglodytes, and Orcus.
- Bugs, reptilians (except trogs), and demons (except Orcus) have green blood. Ettercaps, gargoyles, trolls and gelatinous cubes do as well.
- Zombies, ghouls, mohrgs, shadows, and umber hulks have yellow blood.
- Skeltons, mummies, liches, and most golems have white blood.
- Elementals, spectres, wraiths, oozes, and placeables have None.
- The DLA gems golems have ****.
It strikes me just how much more gore red blood has compared to the others, slightly more than twice as much! Also it appears that the intent of white blood is to have bones and nothing else. Although that doesn’t explain why golems have white blood. Yellow appears to be for diseased undead. Green blood seems to be a catch-all category for magical creatures-which-are-not-diseased-nor-skeletal.
For my custom content, I am going to change the blood for all constructs to None or **** except for the bone golem. Umber Hulks will have green or red blood instead of white. And given how there is twice as much red gore as green, I am going to give some serious thought to changing a lot of creatures to red blood as I prefer to have a lot more gore in my combats.
