Blood Sisters are powerful warriors used as bodyguards to High Priestesses or Bloodwrack Medusae, or as a potent vanguard for the war covens. Each Blood Sister is equipped with a heartshard glaive – a heavy polearm ideal for driving driving through armour and ribs to cut out an opponent’s heart. Blood Sisters can also channel the blackness of their tainted souls into a strike known as the ‘scáth touch,’ solidifying victims into an unmoving crystal statue that remains horrifically aware. The ultimate in cruelty is for a Blood Sister to thrust her glaive quickly enough to tear out a foe’s beating heart even as the scáth touch turns them to crystal, trapping them forever in a state of unimaginable agony.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 5 Blood Sisters. The first thing you’re likely to notice about these miniatures is their legs, or rather their lack – reshaped in the image of their creator Morathi, everything below their torso has been reshaped into that of a sinister, twisted serpent. Above the this they feature metal waist pieces with attached sashes, and armoured breastplates. The Blood Sisters feature intimidating full-face masks, each with expressions of fury and snakes framing their wild, swept-back hair. You have the option to build 1 model as a Gorgai, the unit leader: she can be distinguished by her uniquely jeweled mask, specific heartshard glaive and her grisly trophy – the heart of an unfortunate victim, clutched proudly in her left hand.
The Melusai Blood Sisters come as 100 components, and are supplied with 5 Citadel 40mm Round bases. This kit can optionally be used to assemble 5 Melusai Blood Stalkers.
