And that's it, when you use mounted Hrognak you have a fully integrated figure, hold by a magnet, and you can remote the Orc to make a standalone hero.
The howdah is the platform, not the dino, chap. The dino is something like a triceratops (not sure if it's any specific dinosaur, but something along those lines).
Howdahs are platforms placed on the backs of large animals (usually elephants) in the real world, often used for parades, hunting or warfare. This is how a large number of war elephants were employed in real life - they'd often have a howdah with archers mounted inside it.
Cool idea, though.
