Warlords of incredible power and menace in their own right, the Varanguard have grown into creatures of immense cruelty over many lifetimes of merciless slaughter and conquest. Each individual Varanguard has led countless campaigns across numberless centuries, having risen through the ranks of Chaos upon a fountain of blood - they command the respect of mortal lords and kings, Daemon Princes and Daemon Kings, for when they ride into battle, it is at the bidding of the Everchosen alone. Their allegiance lies solely with Archaon, and the Three-Eyed King understands perfectly how to use their massive killing capacity. Where the Varanguard ride, subjugation follows. This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble three Varanguard Knights, sinister champions of Archaon. Each knight rides a daemonic steed - a barely-recognisable, twisted mutation of a horse covered in brutal armour. The kit comes with a hammer, an axe, a sword, three spears and three shields, six heads (three bare, three helmeted) and six shoulder pads - your emissaries of Archaon will look exactly as harsh as you want them to! 111 components in total, with three included Citadel 75x42mm Oval bases.
Even for creatures of Chaos, Manticores are particularly ferocious, possessed of an innate stubbornness that propels them to fight for their territory against even the most overpowering odds. No matter what their adversary, the Manticore will launch itself roaring into a bloody and brutal conflict from which there can be only a single victor. More often than not, providing their foe isn't too much bigger than them, it's the Manticore that will stand triumphant. Such wild, animalistic rage does not go unnoticed by the Slaves to Darkness. Champions will seek out, tame and ride these monstrous killers into battle, revelling in the carnage and spurring the Manticore on to more and greater acts of terror. This multi-part plastic kit contains one Chaos Lord on Manticore - a finely detailed kit that comes in 62 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 120x92mm Oval base. This kit can be optionally assembled as a Chaos Sorcerer Lord on Manticore.
A magic user of terrifying renown, able to wield fell energies and bend them to his grim will, a Chaos Sorcerer Lord is a fearsome foe to encounter. Able to bestow his followers with daemonic essence, boosting their skill, strength and endurance to unholy levels, his magical abilities and oracular visions make him indispensable. This plastic kit contains one six-component Chaos Sorcerer Lord, and is supplied with one Citadel 32mm Round base.
