Armies played


  1. Greetings, welcome to my thread where I'll dump the things I'm slowly working on. Currently I'm muddling around with a HH NL force just as a break from my 40K & AT, maybe I'll be able to play it one day. These are the first models I've used an airbrush and oils on so C&C is welcome! Praetor Night Raptors Half a Terror Squad I've got one and a half terror squads, a chaplain, an apothecary, a contemptor and five more night raptors WIP
  2. After seeing and lurking in Dragonlover's thread on lurking I though I'd try and motivate myself to start posting more, even if it's just a small update in this thread. So the main aim will be to show the progress as I paint my Loyalist Emperor's Children. Which will hopefully also stop me from getting distracted by other projects on hold. But we'll see how long I last with just the one. So onto a couple pictures. First up is my Leviathan I completed a couple months ago. I know it's not 'new' but it shows what is complete for the project so far. There is also some infantry but after trying Retributor Gold they've been moved back onto the paint table to be updated. I've also recently completed my Loyal Son the Praetor for the Legion. I couldn't resist the new Blood Angel Praetor, and thought, if the Blood Angels can use our Palatine blades, I'm going to claim the Praetors So what's currently receiving paint which shouldn't take too long to appear is the updated and expanded first Palatine, and Tactical Squad supporting a Primus Medicae. Then onto lots of support marines, while doing everything I can to avoid painting Drop Pods. So, back to lurking while painting.
  3. Have what I'd need for a NL Havoc squad. Bonus 5 guys from the HH starter. Any recs? Going to go with chaincannons and plasma gun as default
  4. Hello all! I'm in the (very) early stages of planning a unit of Night Lords Chosen as somewhat of a theoretical display piece. The problem is that while I LOVE the Night Lords...I don't actually play Chaos (pretty isolated without much of a playgroup, as well). While this unit will likely not actually see a battlefield, I won't say never, and would like to keep it legal and useful, just in case. Would it be possible to get some recommendations for common unit size and loadouts for Chosen as a starting point? Thanks!
  5. I've wanted to do a Night lords warband for the longest time and had just been waiting for a new Chaos Codex to drop. Then Heresy 2.0 was announced and I knew i wanted to use the new MK6 models as a base for units I could use in a 40k army and a small 30k army. The over all idea is still in its early stages but here is what lore I've started on. Company/Warband Emblem The Night Lords 56th company, known as the “Midnight Court”, functioned as a vanguard force during the early stages of the Crusade. Their preferred tactic was infiltrating enemy lines under the dead of night. Whereafter they target members of the planet’s ruling class in an attempt to destabilise the enemy’s chain of command. These members would be captured and their tortures and executions broadcasted over the planet’s communications networks. Under the confusion and outrage caused by these killings, the rest of the Night Lords' compliance force would attack. Sergeant Marek Kel of 6th Claw. I've magnetized his Lightning Claw and Chainglaive. What I have finished of 6th Claw so far
  6. Nothing to see here The content is in another castle or just start here http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/222538-another-diy-chapter-blog-for-the-omnissiah-9514/?p=2963992
  7. Captain Valos of the VIII legion Astartes atleast that's what he was back in the great crusade 10,000 years ago now he was a renegade captain of some 80 Night Lords and the strike cruiser Bloody Reaper they were the reapers of blood war band formally the 18th company once nearly 500 astartes strong now a shadow of those better times. Valos grunted as the ships deck rumbled and groaned signaling they were leaving the Warp. "Translation to real space complete my lord" one of his human serfs reported to him causing him to wave to dismiss them. "Auspex reading now" Valos demanded as he looked at the bridge crew run about terrified to be reprimanded the last bridge crew member to be reprimanded skin still hung from on of the vaulted arch ways surrounding the bridge. "sir we detect 3 imperial ships 1 light cruiser of dauntless class and 2 material transports" the auspex officer reported "Good let's begin destroy the Light cruiser and cripple the transports" Valos ordered The Bloody Reaper moved fast being an astartes strike cruiser it was deadly and fast designed to run blockades and take on vessels of greater tonnage it fired two lance battery salvos at the first transport its migraine bright beams neatly slicing off the massive enginarium blocks in bright silent explosions causing the vessel to tumble out of control, as this happened 3 long torpedos left the Reaper crashing into the transport to disgorge it's deadly cargo of 30 Night Lord space marines into its bowels that's when the VoX traffic was nothing but screams coming from the transport. the second transport powered away as the Light Cruiser Dawn of Hope moved to intercept the Bloody Reaper it's broadside macro batteries unleashing a torrent of tank size shells at the strike cruiser causing its void shields to flare like oil on water The Reaper Answered with its own broard side of macro and lance batteries popping the light cruisers void shields with the first barrage before the second began eating into the vessels armour, macro shells ripping great holes into its starboard flank as lance beams cut burning furrows through several decks immolating crew and machinery with equal ease crippling the Dawn of Hope in two salvos leaving it listing and burning, Valos considered capturing it and maybe starting his own little fleet but decided the damage was too great so signaled to finish it as soon as they crippled the second transport. with the order given the Bloody reaper Fired 3 more torpedos along with lance battery fire the lance battery fire cut into the engine of the second transport and the 3 torpedos slammed into the transport repeating the process that had happened to the first transport Valos smiled knowing that within the hour both transport ships crews would either be tortured to death or slaves to work on his ship. The Bloody Reaper prowled round onto the Dawn of Hope like a shark that had scented blood as the ship tried to come about firing its few renaming starboard batteries in defiance of the inevitable, this of course made Valos smile "finish this" He stated The Bloody Reaper eager for the kill opened fire with its prow lance batteries each beam cut into Dawn of Hopes hull one beam smashing into the bridge killing its command crew within a minute of continuous firing the Dawn of Hope was nothing but a burning hulk that may one day be recovered and repaired by the imperium or would just be a wreck to float the void for eternity. Valos waited as the new slaves and materials were loaded from the two gutted transports his gauntlet tapping on the arm of his command throne as he wondered if he should have captured that light cruiser o well that's another kill for the Reaper he grinned to himself as a space marine approached "my lord all items are on board and both transports warp drives are rigged to blow when another boards" the marine reported. "Very good draken" Valos replied before dismissing him, Valos waited until his auspex office shouted "warp point opening." "so the worshipers of the false emperor did get a message out" Valos mused as his ship moved towards his designated escape point. "activate the gelled fields and jump to warp" Valos ordered as he read the new comers, Seraphs might a strike cruiser of the Angels Vermileon along with Bloody thirst and Blood Drop both astartes Nova class frigates also from the Angels Vermileon Chapter as they finished translating into the system Valos own vessel jumped into the warp.
  8. The Wolves go for the throat. We go for the eyes. Then the tongue. Then the hands. Then the feet. Then we skin the crippled remains, and offer it up as an example to any still bearing witness. The Wolves were warriors before they became soldiers. We were murderers first, last, and always! Now that the CSM codex has been out for a month it's time that we dig our own skinning pits (or in other words get our own tactics thread going). This is intended to be the go-to space for musings on Night Lords in 9th edition, army lists, combos, and strengths of specific units. The Flayer's repository is a collection of relevant links and I will update it whenever interesting stuff pops up in this thread. That way you'll find everything you need for the creation of a fearsome Night Lords army in the first post. Alright then, let's hear your experiences with your Night Lords so far. Let's hear the good, the bad, and the ugly. Which units have fared well? Which one will you leave at home the next time? How good or bad are our legion trait, relics, and stratagems in your opinion?

  9. Surprise is an insubstantial blade, a sword worthless in war. It breaks when troops rally. It snaps when commanders hold the line. But fear never fades. Fear is a blade that sharpens with use. So let the enemy know we come. Let their fears defeat them as everything falls dark. As the world's sun sets...As the city is wreathed in its final night... Let ten-thousand howls promise ten-thousand claws. The Night Lords are coming, and no soul that stands against us shall see another dawn. The War Sage Malcharion Hi everybody! I thought it's only appropriate to kick this thread off with a quote from Malcharion, since the Night Lords trilogy is one of the reasons why I came back to 40k. I've spent the last couple years building a modest force (I'm a terribly slow painter) and lurking around on this board, but now I've decided that I might as well join in on the fun. To give you an idea of what my Night Lords look like, here's some stuff I've finished recently. My MkIII squad, led by a still unnamed champion: And two Obliterators, the Eisenfresser: I managed to get my hands on some Gorgons a while back and I have to say, they are lovely miniatures. Naturally I just had to convert/corrupt one of them, which led to this fella: Warpsmith Hadur Cobannus Mars Ultor of the Ghoul Stars I hope you like them. There's more to come. INVENTARIUM Raptor Squad "Sol Invictus" - July 13th, 2016 Ceratus Knight Acheron - August 5th, 2016 Lord on Juggernaut - November 15th, 2016 Maulerfiend - January 17th, 2017 Headsman of Malal - April 26th, 2017 Terror Squad "Profugum" - September 2017 Warpsmith Hadur - January 2019 Terminator Lord Varkaus - July 2019 Hellforged Contemptor - August 2019 Sicaran Battle Tank - February 2020 Emissary Ostisoi - March 2020
  10. I'm awful at introductions, but yes, another Night Lords army blog. Inspired by the Night Lords trilogy and about a decade of "I should really get around to that", this is less of an army project as I don't really play 40k these days and more of an art project for myself. Hilariously, it took me 8 months to settle on a basing scheme, but more on that in a second. The first thing I built and painted for the army was a set of objective markers. The inspiration is rather obvious, of course, but the Souls series provided me with a ton of inspiration for the project, from the ashen waste basing scheme to a general sense of mood I want to approach the Warband and their current engagement. The basing was a nightmare to decide upon. I wanted something that contrasted well with the midnight blue and bronze of the Legion, but nothing too complicated or that'll take away from the models. The final bit of inspiration was the Kiln of the First Flame, this wasteland of ash choked ruins of a once great empire, now crumbled, broken and near forgotten, its inhabitant shadows of a past greatness. There's a lot of fun parallels between the series and 40k. The large base belongs to a Venomcrawler, which currently is awaiting priming. And inspired by the all the Heresy nonsense going on right now, I added a single lost soul to the warband, a forgotten remnant of ancient glory. Some actual Night Lords are on the desk at the moment, though I have no idea when I'll get around to finishing them as I've been distracted lately playing through Final Fantasy 7.
  11. Hi all, after posting most of my finished Night Lords models on my showcase thread, it's time to get back into the saddle of modelling again! I'll try to post as regularly as I can. Of course, inspiration sometimes fades, but I've found it is great to have a community to share your work and hobby with, so when I model and paint, I'll be sure to keep you updated. I hope you enjoy and maybe get inspired as I have been by what I've seen here. Please let me know what you think, be it praise, criticism, or suggestions. Some of the models I like the most have details on them that were inspired by other people's feedback, so feel free! In this thread: NIGHT LORDS run from the first page up to page 51, and between this post on page 153 and page 165 WORLD EATERS feature occasionally from this post on page 23, and heavily from this post on page 108.

  12. Hi all, long-time lurker (to the extent that I legitimately forgot I had an account here and had to get Kurgan the Lurker's help recovering it [thanks man!]) and I thought that, since I'm a responsibleish adult, I felt that I should make a WIP log of my, already sizable collections. Now, my one, true love for factions is the World Eaters/Khorne Daemonkin. Even though it's the smallest of my factions right now, as I managed to luck out with some friends not wanting the Death Guard halves of Dark Imperium, so I got those on the cheap. And the Dark Angels were literally given to me by a friend who said, and I quote "Yeah, they're yours. I don't have the time to play 40k, or the space to store these". So I was just casually given at least 2k points of Dark Angels. So, welcome to my WIP thread. Some pretty pictures: Maulerfiend I'm most happy about how the eyes and legion badge came out Skarbrand Everyone's favorite madman: Khârn the Betrayer Some Daemons and a Spawn Mortarion More to come!
