Steeds of Slaanesh are the favoured mounts ridden by the Daemonette cavalry known as Seekers.
Steeds of Slaanesh are swift and powerful daemonic beasts, capable of running for eternity without ever tiring. They are often used as mounts by the mortal and daemonic champions of Slaanesh.
A Steed has a serpentine body propelled on two long, muscular legs. Its head is extremely narrow, little more than a slender snout with eyes, from which a toxin-coated tongue several metres long flicks and darts and can taste the desire of mortals.
Steeds are vicious when roused, their tongues lashing like whips, their clawed feet kicking and eviscerating. They are incarnations of Slaanesh's free spirit, insatiably curious and, like all Daemons of Slaanesh, always crave experience.
When they go for the kill, the Steeds' long, toxin-coated tongues dart out to ensnare their victims, shuddering in delight as they taste the delicious desires present in the mortals' souls.
Here roam the herds of Steeds, hundreds of them roaming freely, like birds on the wing, allowed to flit and run where they please, shifting colour from soft blues to pastel purples and gentle ochres.
