The Black Coaches are funerary carriages from the underworlds. Within these arcane carriages any tangible remains are gathered in a casket that offers a safe haven in which the banished entity can reform. The dormant occupant can feed upon the energies of death, drinking in agony and grief in order to grow strong. On first tasting death, the Black Coach speeds forward before shimmering jets of balefire extend from the wheels, acting like scythes to cut down enemies. When the coach is immersed in sufficient energies it flickers, allowing it to disappear and reappear in more advantageous positions. Onwards it rolls, growing ever more powerful until it becomes a nigh-unstoppable force of death.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Black Coach. Constructed from heavy wooden panels with rivets straining against the ethereal power within, this is a funerary carriage whose drapes are tied back, making a grisly casket within visible; this houses a bound vampire, who can be seen should you choose to model the casket with its lid off. The wheels are wrought from ornate iron – 2 small wheels at the front, 2 larger wheels at the back – with skulls and hourglasses representing death dotted symbolically around. 3 Relic Bearers are careening alongside the Coach, carrying a sword, book and goblet, the personal effects of the vampire being transported. A Cairn Wraith is driving the Coach forward, who can be modelled wearing either a hood or a crown – he can carry a soulreach grasp, a reaper scythe or be modelled with empty, gesturing hands. 4 Nightmares pull the Coach, borne aloft on wisps of ethereal energy – the 2 front Nightmares wear enormous spiked funeral crests.
This kit comes as 58 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 170mm Oval base.
