Nighthaunt

Even the boldest warrior might lose his nerve when confronted by the Nighthaunt, for these ethereal horrors are every dark folk tale and lingering nightmare made manifest. With phantom blades and icy, spectral claws, they tear the living asunder, sending their souls screaming to Shyish to face Nagash’s judgement.
