The Lord of Skulls is a super-heavy Daemon Engine of Chaos that is dedicated to the service of the Chaos God Khorne. These massive Daemon Engines are created by the most ambitious and skilled of Warpsmiths deep within their black forges located within the Eye of Terror. Each Lord of Skulls is a grotesque battle construct armed with a multitude of powerful daemonic weapons. The Lord of Skulls takes the form of the upper body of a great warrior of Khorne, mounted upon a set of large tracks. These monstrous machines are powered by steam from the boiling blood of murderers, which swills forth from immense pressure tanks located on the daemon construct's back. When the Lord of Skull's ire is raised to apoplectic levels, it vents great gouts of this fluid into the ranks of the enemy to boil them alive. The machine is festooned with the remains of its victims, their skulls forever trapped within the daemon machine's armour and weapons. The Lord of Skulls appears similar in construction to the Chaos Lord of Battles, another massive Daemon Engine of Khorne, although it is unknown if a Greater Daemon of Khorne is also slaved to the Lord of Skulls or a Lesser Daemon.
The Lord of Skulls is armed with three main weapons, two on its arms and a single, potent ranged weapon mounted within its torso. The war machine always carries a Great Cleaver of Khorne in its right hand and a long-range weapon mounted upon its left arm. The arm-mounted weapon can be either an infantry-shredding Hades Gatling Gun or a Skull Hurler, an aptly named weapon that hurls burning skulls the Lord of Skulls' foes. The daemon machine's hull-mounted weapons can include either a Gorestorm Cannon, a Daemongore Cannon, or an Ichor Cannon.
