Painting Night Lords

I have a vast number of Raptors laying around which I have not made or painted for certain reasons.

I have decided to paint them as Night lords but cant find any good Tutorials.

So can all you Lords of Night post how you paint your Night lords. Also how do you paint all the lighting.

well buddy my bro has a HUGE!!! night lord army like 23k points so.... we had to find a way to mass produce them here it is1. prime them black 2. dry brush them a dark blue color 3. go over the trim in gold .touch up whacky lookin spots and as far as the lightning bolts go use a fine tipped brush or a toothpick and paint lightning bolts in gray then after it dries go over it with white the lighting bolts will take some practice so practice on some leftover spue peices and after a while u should have it down to a science buddy good luck and let me know how it goes

+ rep for you.
That sounds like a great way to do them. I have a few old 2nd Edition Space Marines I can practice the lighting on. As I think good lighting really brings forth a Night lord army.
Now I just need to decide if I am going to use bat helmets or not.
