Aesthetically, the Coven Throne wins easily in my opinion ;).  This is the choice that I would make for my unopened box of the same kit.  Whether that is the best choice for the current gaming environment in Age of Sigmar, I could not say definitively, however, it depends on how much you want to go for theme over effectiveness.  A more vampire-based army lends itself thematically towards the Coven Throne, while a more zombie-based army lends itself towards the Mortis Engine.

Thanks so much. And long time, good to hear from you. I agree with you that the throne is so pretty. Wish i had kept my old VC army. Oh well.

I agree with Iris. If you are only choosing on aesthetics then the Coven Throne wins for me.

Reading stuff on the internet, the consensus appears to be that the Mortis Engine is best taken in pairs, so if you can only take one take a Coven Throne. As ever with the internet it isn't quite that simple, so YMMV.

Mortis engines can definitely do a bunch of damage, especially if you take a few!

I always preferred the Coven Throne myself, but I'm not much of an undead fan either, so I'm sure my opinion is disqualified somewhere :P, haha!

Not disqualifing my friend. Appreciated.

How about the newer build? The bloodseeker palanquin?

Not worth it, unless you really like the look.
