Greatest of all the Daughters of Khaine icons are the Cauldrons of Blood. These altars of war bear not only an iron effigy of Khaine, but also a sacrificial cauldron that is key to many powerful rituals. The presence of a Cauldron of Blood inspires nearby worshippers, offering them mystical protections while it crashes into enemy battle lines, wreaking havoc in the name of its murderous god.

A Hag Queen on Cauldron of Blood is a single model. The Hag Queen opens the throats of her victims with a Blade of Khaine whilst gifting the god’s worshippers with draughts of Witchbrew from her chalice. The Cauldron of Blood upon which she stands is crewed by two Witch Aelves, who leap from its dais to attack with their Sacrificial Knives. Atop the cauldron looms an Avatar of Khaine, a towering statue that can be animated by powerful blood rites to spew forth a Torrent of Burning Blood before smiting anything that stands in its way with destructive sweeps of its giant Sword.
