Lylyth, Herald of Everblight

I have finished painting one of my warlocks. I actually finished her a few months ago, but I am lazy and have just now posted her. This is Lylyth, Herald of Everblight. She is my ranged warlock. A warlock is the commander of an army. In a normal Hordes game, the objective is to kill the opposing warlock or all of his/her warbeasts. Lylyth has an awesome-sauce ranged attack, and if she hits, she can cast a spell on the target which automatically hits, plus her warbeasts can charge the target for free. She doesn't have too many spells or very much fury, the energy expended to cast spells, but what she does have is really good for wiping out large units of weak models. And then the warbeasts can charge in and finish what's left. What I don't like is that she doesn't have eyeless sight. None of my warbeasts have eyes. They instead use supernatural senses to locate things, thus negating the problems created by fog, forests, and other such concealing obstacles. Lylyth, however, despite always having her eyes covered by her faceplate and sensing things with her magic, cannot surpass these same things. This makes me angry and makes absolutely no sense at all. As for the fig, it's pretty awesome-sauce. I really like her cloak blowing in the wind. Well, hopefully I can post some other figs if I ever get them painted.
