A Necropolis Knight.

Necropolis Knights are the Tomb Kings version of the mortal heavy cavalry. If the best best a mortal can hope for is a horse overloaded with armour, the Nehekharan finest ride the animated stone snakes. Their heavy tails can literally shatter bone with monstrous swipes, while dipping giant fangs in warm flesh. Even if the wound itself is not lethal, the victim is still ultimately doomed; the statue's head conceals poison sacs, further likening to the real snake.[1]

It is only logical that only the best will get to ride these beasts and the knights have a lot in common with the Tomb Guard, including the life-draining spear in their bony hand.[1]
