Lady Sigrith, Great Embalmer + 2 head options + 2 left arm options + 25 mm round base.
Available in resin or white metal. Heroic 28mm scale.
Lady Sigrith ranks at the top of the Iron Empire aristocracy and is probably one of the most versed into the Aegyptian lore and mysteries. She is in charge of many funeral and necromantic tasks in the Iron Empire.
Lady Sigrith supervises the proper Embalming and Restoration of her dead compatriots, where Restoration is the process to bring a dead person back from death as a fully functioning Undead. Restoration is complex, long and costly, and so, not everybody can afford it.
Lady Sigrith is also in charge of scavenging enemy corpses on the battlefield and bringing them back to life as cyber-zombies, who will then complement the Iron Empire rank-and-file or act as bodyguards for high-ranking personalities.
The cyber-zombies are created through a much cruder process than the one used on the Iron Empire deceased citizens. And as much as some of the best 'Restored' Iron Empire citizens can pass for actual living humans, no such confusion could ever exist with the cyber-zombies, who look like disarticulated morbid puppets.
During battle, Lady Sigrith uses the different aspects of her necromantic powers to instantly revive some of the deceased before their soul has escaped, as well as reanimate enemy corpses for canon fodder, and more...
THE IRON EMPIRE (IE) The Iron Empire is made up of exiled people that have somehow stumbled upon necromantic knowledge from alien pharaonic gods. They combine Prussian and Germanic influences with some kind of Aegyptian cyber necromancy that allow them to raise the dead and create bio-mechanical aberrations.
