Warhammer: Vampire Counts Coven Throne / Mortis Engine
The monarchs of the night are often borne to war on gilded palanquins known as Coven Thrones. These bone-framed constructs are held aloft by the departed spirits of those slain by the Vampire and doomed to bear them into battle for eternity. Of all the Vampire bloodlines, it is the Lahmians who are famed for their use of the Coven Thrones, and as such they are often bedecked with rare artefacts and scrying pools full of the blood of innocents. Despite their luxury, these ostentatious palanquins are potent weapons - a coven of Vampires fighting as one is as formidable a prospect as any Dragon or Daemon Lord. The Mortis Engine is both a tomb and a shrine to the most powerful Necromancers to walk the world. Once dead (properly dead), the remains of these powerful wizards are enshrined within the Mortis Engine and borne to war by a host of spirits bound to the infernal device. Surrounded by wailing Banshees and pulled by Undead revenants, it is a terrifying sight to behold. Yet amidst the cacophony of Undead souls stands the Corpsemaster - the keeper of the reliquary - a source of unimaginable power. With bony hands he removes the case that holds the artefact and unleashes its power upon the battlefield. Foes wither and die in droves as the Corpsemaster allows the Mortis Engine to releases its true power, which only grows more intense as the battle reaches its gory climax. This multi-part plastic kit contains 87 components with which to build one Vampire Counts Coven Throne or one Mortis Engine. The kit comes with plenty of optional extras, including two very different heroes - the sinister Corpsemaster surrounded by a swarm of howling Banshees, and the seductive (but no less deadly) Vampire and her handmaidens. This kit comes with a 50x100mm chariot base. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly.
