Dark Riders are most commonly employed to range ahead of the main warhost. In battle, they take delight in skirting the enemy flanks to attack war machines and cut off lines of supply.
The Dark Riders are mounted on 5 Dark Steeds and are distinguished by the 5 cloaked torsos. There are a variety of options to add to the miniatures including 5 stowed repeater crossbows; 4 spears; 5 unique embossed shields; 5 sheathed swords; and a choice of 14 heads (6 helmeted, 5 masked, 2 with scarves over their mouths, and 1 with twin hair braids that can be used as the Herald). There are also additional parts to make a standard bearer and hornblower.
The Dark riders come as 98 components, and are supplied with 5 60mm Oval bases. The kit can optionally be used to assemble 5 Doomfire Warlocks.
