Soul Wars has brought a new era upon Age of Sigmar. As a new dawn rises, a new faction is also born in the form of the Nighthaunt. Soul Wars has officiated the Nighthaunt as a fully fledged faction!

In this week’s pre-release line up in Games Workshop, a new set of malevolent spirits from the Nighthaunt will join the fray!

Nighthaunt Bundle

Price: $200

This bundle contains 2 sets of Easy to Build miniatures along with Kurdoss Valentian, accursed lieutenant of the Nighthaunt. Included in this bundle are the following:

1. An Easy to Build Reikenor the Grimhailer, mounted atop a winged Nightmare named Kyallaron, clutching its reins in 1 hand and a great scythe known as Fellreaper in the other.
2. A pair of Easy to Build Dreadblade Harrows – these Knights of Regret ride spectral mounts, and make lunging attacks with their dreadblades held aloft in their right hands.
3. Kurdoss Valentian, the Craven King: a hunched, slumped figure on a crumbling throne, this menacing model is armed with the Sepulchral Sceptre and is flanked by 2 Wraith Heralds.

If you just want to hand pick a miniature or two, the miniatures can also be bought separately. Here’s how much each will cost you.

Kurdoss Valentian, The Craven King
Price: $90

This is a multi-part plastic kit that contains the components necessary to assemble Kurdoss Valentian, the Craven King. This kit comes as 19 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 60mm Round base.

Seated silent and unmoving on his cracked, crumbling throne, Kurdoss is a hunched, slumped figure who nonetheless exudes an aura of pure menace, with his sinister, 3-pointed crown entirely enclosing his face in a skull-like mask. One hand clutches the arm of his throne, while the other holds the Sepulchral Sceptre – far from an ornate, bejeweled ceremonial staff, this is a solid weapon designed to crack open the skulls of those who rouse Kurdoss’ fury. Flanking him on either side are his accompanying Wraith Heralds, who are bound to him eternally – one as a banner-bearer, the other carrying a trumpet. The twisted forms of tormented souls rise high above Kurdoss, and the whole miniature is borne aloft on a swirling column of ethereal energy which attaches to the base.

Easy to Build: Reikenor the Grimhailer
$65

This kit assembles Reikenor the Grimhailer, mounted on his steed, the Nightmare Kyallaron. Push-fit, with no glue required, this kit is incredibly straightforward to put together and comes on pre-colored turquoise plastic. It also comes as 11 components and is supplied with a Citadel 75mm Oval scenic base.

Reikenor the Grimhailer is an impressively aggressive-looking and sinister Nighthaunt miniature. His ethereal form is clad in a tattered cloak, beneath which is visible a skeletal mask, and thin arms grasping his weapon – a great scythe known as Fellreaper, which features a grave-sand filled hourglass hanging from a chain – and the reins of his mount, a winged Nightmare named Kyallaron. This steed is magnificent, despite its necrotic status – large, tattered wings sprout from its back, and on the whole, it has the appearance of impressively muscular power, even with its ribs visible and its legs being nothing more than bone. Its armored helm is covered in dripping corpse candles, as is Reikenor’s, and the whole miniature is depicted swooping low over a graveyard scene, a sinister winged skeleton statue providing the support.

Easy to Build: Dreadblade Harrows
Price: $45

This kit assembles 2 Easy To Build Dreadblade Harrows. Push-fit, with no glue required, this kit is incredibly straightforward to put together and comes on a pre-colored turquoise plastic sprue. It also comes as 12 push-fit components and is supplied with 2 textured 60mm oval bases – these feature the graveyard detritus expected from the Nighthaunt.

The Dreadblade Harrows are a pair of mounted spectral knights, seemingly a touch more solid than many of their Nighthaunt brethren, but no less sinister. Each is armed with a dreadblade held aloft in their right hand, with their left hands clutching the reins – one set spiked, one set ornate – of their steed. Not much else is visible of the Harrows themselves, with a helmeted skull peering out from beneath their cloak. Their mount is large and muscular; its ethereal skin is torn and tattered, making its ribcage visible, with its head being no more than a skull. The rear of the steed is depicted as tailing off into ethereal vapour, as the Harrow emerges from nothing to attack.

The miniatures are designed to be as easy as possible to assemble for new hobbyists while being detailed enough for the hardiest veteran to appreciate.
