Anyone ever use these in their army lists? I always ponder it for a bit, but then let it go because I have no idea how to model it, base size etc.
a palanquin is what the slann mage priest rides into battle. Imagine like a disc of tzeench, but maybe a bit bigger. You could buy a slann mage priest, and use his palanquin and nurglify it. When I make my lord on palanquin, he'll be held up by 4 plaguebearers. I never used them, but they can look neat.
Cool Thanks for the enlightenment. Can you please post a picture of your mod when it is done?
Also, the model for Epidemus is mounted on a Palanquin of Nurgle. It's just like a teeming mass of Nurglings carrying a throne.
Yeah, a palanquin is basically just a chair, throne, or small 1-person enclosure carried by slaves, rather than rolled around on wheels or pulled by a horse. When I think "palanquin" I think of Xerxes from the movie "300" being carried about on a giant golden throne on the back of dozens of slaves. Mind you, that's much larger than what is practical in WHFB, but you get the idea. Badmartialarts had it right - Epidemius rides exactly the type of palanquin that is referred to in the Army Book.
That said, I was planning on modeling one of these by taking what looks like a wooden church door or equally large slab of scrap wood, and mount it on top of a 40x40mm base filled to the brim with Nurglings, and have the mounted individual surfing on top of it in a standing position. The church door would be covered in filth and Nurgle symbols (or, as usual, filth in the shape of Nurgle's symbol) and a few other icons and accessories.
This is what I use:

The Dwarf High King also rides on a palanquin.
