Deathrattle

Deathrattle are the vast sprawling undead empires of skeletons overseen by queens and kings.

Overview

The Wight Kings rule huge empires from their barrow thrones, tomb palaces and mortuary keeps - their populations were once living and vital kingdoms that have been destroyed by war or pestilence or simply crushed by time. Many of the inhabitants of these empires still act much as they did when they were living, toiling silently to build and maintain cities and towns, clear woods and forge weapons and tools.[1]

Their armies are a sharp contrast to the ravening hordes of the Flesh-eater Courts, marching and fighting in disciplined ranks of infantry with proud cavalry formations of Black Knights - the noble warriors of the king or queens lands. The Grave Guard are equally elite warriors, heavily armoured in the best materials their nation can provide, and like the Black Knights, their weapons are enchanted and deadly.[1]
