A Bloodseeker Palanquin is the dread conveyance of a Sanguinarch, an honoured vampire who seeks only the richest and most potent blood to sample. Leashed spirits and wailing banshees swirl about this construction of sinew and bone, and mounted at the front is a cauldron containing the Sanguinarch’s finest concoction, an elixir utterly intoxicating to her Soulblight kin.
Unit Size: 1 Points: 300
Battlefield Role: Leader, Behemoth
A Bloodseeker Palanquin is a single model. The Sanguinarch strikes at nearby foes with her Bloodletting Blade. She is mounted on a palanquin carried by a swirling Spectral Host that fights with shimmering Ethereal Weapons. Above the palanquin, the tortured banshee spirits of failed assistants scream a Wail of the Damned, while scanning the battlefield for choice specimens.
