Once a courageous vampire-knight who, despite holding no love for Ghur’s mortal races, refused to prey upon those weaker than herself, Lauka Vai’s constant struggle against the hunger within was cruelly cut short while tangling with a Tzeentchian sorcerer. Upon falling into a pool of primordial ooze she returned in an altogether more monstrous form, slaying her fellow knights in a fit of rage before the red thirst could be quieted. Now found among the equally bestial Avengorii dynasty, she leads her fellow vampires with the dignity of a true warrior queen, all the while fighting an unwinnable war against her own base instincts.
Standing tall over the battlefield as a bestial mixture of bat-fiend, drake and vampire, Lauka Vai strikes down would-be challengers with ease befitting a noble knight in monstrous form. While she retains her wits and keeps her thirst at bay, fellow Soulblight monsters hang on her every word, but a deadly rage can descend at any moment and turn the Mother of Nightmares into a charging, howling whirlwind of carnage.
The kit is comprised of 39 plastic components, with which you can assemble one Lauka Vai, Mother of Nightmares, and is supplied with 1x Citadel 80mm Round Base. This model can alternatively be assembled as a Vengorian Lord.
When the first rumbles of Nagash’s great spell of death were felt, many magically-attuned vampire lords voyaged closer to Nagashizzar to better receive a bounty of power from the great wave of death magic. Unfortunately, they bit off far more than they could chew, and the amethyst magics of the necroquake turned those vampires into Vengorian Lords. Bitter at their monstrous fate, they now hide away in remote lairs, only to return leading crusades of spiteful retribution against all who would dare to live a life less afflicted.
While they may look every bit a blood-crazed monster, long divorced of a vampire’s warped nobility, Vengorian Lords are still capable commanders adept at directing their troops to greater acts of violence. They also retain the typical Soulblight aptitude for magic, and when a would-be hero strays too close to their sharp talons a quick swipe is all that’s needed to commend another soul to Nagash. All the while, the Vengorians struggle with their inner bestiality, for it can take just a moment for the thin veneer of stability to give way to a rampage of bloodshed and violence.
