Black Coach

Primary tabs

On the field of battle, Black Coaches channel magical energy, making them both stronger in defence and on the charge.

Legend has it that the driver of a Black Coach is a Wraith of some kind, and that grisly Nightmares pull it to war. On the battlefield, it feeds on magics wielded by sorcerers both mortal and ever-living. Driven on by the undying will of the Vampire couched within it, the Coach crushes or scythes down the ranks of the enemy without slowing. By creating a Black Coach, the Vampire's retainers can transport their master's rejuvenating form to places of slaughter. This allows the Vampire to revivify himself, drinking in the coalescing energies that swirl around the crucible of war. Each Black Coach is a magnet for such baleful forces; as it drives onward, it draws in the energies of the battlefield, shimmering with sorcerous power until it is all but unstoppable.


Attribute Description
Can Cause Fear This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.
Can Cause Terror This unit can cause terror, making its melee target rout for a short time. Units that cause terror are immune to terror and fear themselves.


Ability Description
Black Nimbus

A pulsing nimbus of darkness envelops the Black Coach, making it sleeker and more resistant to enemies.

Black Scythes

The Black Coach manifests gleaming scythes, as sharp as the night is dark.

Unholy Vigour

The Cairn Wraith and the skeletal steeds pulling the Black Coach are filled with unholy vigour.


The dead do not rest easily in the Old World. Those summoned by Vampires and Necromancers no longer have mortal concerns - they serve only their master's will.


The Dark Magic binding has failed. Both flesh and necromantic energy slough off the subjects, leaving naught but dust.
