The Avatar of Khaine are black iron statues made by the Daughters of Khaine in the image of the god of war and murder, Kaela Mensha Khaine or more commonly known as Khaine.[1a]

Creation

Avatars of Khaine are merely iron statues, but it is through the blood rituals of the Khainite Priestesses that these metal titans are animated into terrifying life.[1a]

Combat

Either from atop a Cauldron of Blood or striding across the battlefield on foot, these black iron juggernauts are a terrible sight to behold. The statue of Khaine will unleash a roar of horrifying anger and spew torrents of molten metal blood upon the foe, while it will swing its massive sword to hack down those deemed enemies of the Khainites, creating a whirlwind of limbs, blood and gore.[1a]

Hagg Nar

The War Covens of the first temple field more Blood Cauldrons than any of the other sects. Under the watchful eyes of these iron giants, the priestesses of Hagg Nar have perfected the art of bringing them to live. Iron Avatars of Khaine are commonly sighted amongst the war hosts of Hagg Nar, tearing apart the enemies of Khaine in bloody rage.[2b]

Where in other temple-cities, Khaine is still most commonly depicted in its male aspect, in Hagg Nar the newly ascended Morathi-Khaine is reshaping them in her image.[2a]
