Tucking their wings close, the Khinerai known as Lifetakers plummet down at high speeds. At the last moment they spread their leathery pinions, snapping their descent as they swing their sickle-blades with maximum force. Foes that survive this devastating assault can strike back, but the Lifetakers are masters at turning their heartpiercer shields to not only parry blows but to puncture organs. Even as nearby enemies rally to pin the Lifetakers in combat, they rise above the melee in a flurry of beating wings, looking for the next target. For such unfortunates, the last thing they will hear is a sudden rush of wind before the Lifetakers’ deadly assault reaps its toll.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 5 Khinerai Lifetakers. These Khinerai wear open-face helmets, making the twisted sneers of their bloodlust plainly visible as they soar through the skies on enormous, spiked wings. Their armour is minimal, designed more to be streamlined for aerial maneuvers than actual protection – thick plate would drag them down, providing a disadvantage to these high-speed killers. Each Lifetaker carries a horrific barbed sickle in one hand, with a heartpiercer shield in the other; these shields are aptly named, featuring large, sharp spikes. You can build a Harridynn, which is the unit leader – she is denoted by her unique hairpiece and loincloth. Each model is attached to its base via a sculpted ruin to which their base connects, providing the dynamic, aerial look they require.
The Khinerai Lifetakers come as 61 components, and are supplied with 5 Citadel 40mm Round bases. This kit can optionally be used to assemble 5 Khinerai Heartrenders.
