Hi, i'm not sure where to put this - i've found a model in a pile of models I have and i'm not sure what it is?!

Its a skeleton chariot with wings - I *think* it was for previous Tomb Kings but possibly oop VCs. :confused:

I cannot find any pictures of it online so i'm having trouble identifying it!

No idea what it is and quite frankly I dont like the model at all, roll on new TKs I say :p

Many thanks :)

And apologies if this is in any way inappropriate.

Nate.

Arkhan the Black?

Yep, sounds like Arkhan the Black allright. The model is positivly ancient, from the late eighties or early nineties I think. Back then, there were no Vampire Counts and Tomb Kings; instead there was the catch-all "Undead" army book. Arkhan was Nagash' lieutenant, and rides around in a necromantic chariot made from the still-living heart and wings of a Manticore.

It was a liche character that had a big flying chariot! It came from the 4th edition book from before they separated the two armies.

I heard a rumour that a GW employee's family member actually picked up the mold and dropped it so it was no longer made.

It was a really brutal character I remember that much. Like everything in 4th edition undead, totally overpowered compared to anyhting in the new books.

I'd gladly take it if you really don't like the miniature. :)

A shame considering how cool Arkhan was, though the new books seem to be doing their best to remedy that.

Yeah, seems fine for me, especially for it's time.

The chariot is much better than the rider though, I really like the concept of the beating heart and wings of a manticore.
