Way back at the very beginning of 2012 GW released the Coven Throne. In my opinion the model is fantastic and was a pleasure to paint. I tried my hardest to paint this one more gently and patiently than I normally paint most other models. I always have a soft spot when painting anything that involves female vampires. What do you think ?

The whole model is impressive, but I particuarly like the base. It provides good contrast with the more vibrant reds and greens on the throne, but does a great job of reinforcing that undead feel of being cold and desolate.

The sculpting of the vampire ladies is lovely, but I think the models suffers from the same problem as for example the Chaos Warshrine – they made it too tall just for the sake of having a big model. When you look at the model from behind you notice that the throne is attached to two rather flat halves of spirits with a lot of empty space in-between. I would have liked it better if they had done away with everything below the horse riders so that the horsed had contact to the ground. The freed up sprue space could have then be used to fill the void between the two spirit halves. The result would be a still a big yet more compact model that would look a little bit more like an unholy coach.
