Default Decisions on a return to 40k

Having recently made a few bucks on eBay, after much persuasion by a gaming buddy, that money has been reinvested into 40k, a system I have pretty much ignored since the advent of 6th Ed. As a start I've ordered the new Prospero box, a Leviathan dreadnought, and a Cerastus Knight-Atrapos. The plan is to build a Legion force that could be used in either 30k or 40k.

My only problem now is that I can't decide which legion. I really like the more-black-than-yellow IF scheme on the assault marine below, but I also keep getting drawn back to the Night Lords. I think their contemptor is best in the range, and, well, they have Sevatar.

So, time for some input from the Heretics. IF or NLs?

I have seen the black and yellow theme done very well and like it too, but if the NL have models you dig you'll likely always kick yourself for not having them.

There are some really nice IF minis, like the command minis, Pollux and Sigismund. It's more the character of Sevatar than the actual mini.

I am genuinely stumped.

Dang. Well ya gotta look at, not to mention paint, the army so go with what pleases your eyes the most I guess. 30k Legions all seem pretty samey to me in terms of balance so I doubt you'll shortchange yourself tactically with either choice.

Edit: What weapons did you get for the leviathan? I am soooooo jealous!

Was just browsing my pal's Fist pictures. I'll leave this here...


Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Two siege claws and the quad autocannon. They'll be magnetised, so I may pick up more down the line.

That yellow and black is very, very sexy.

However, how much of a ball ache is painting yellow?

Tough call...

That doesn't look to bad actually. That looks like Gw's yellow/ ochre base color with airmail additional highlights and washes.

As long as your white undercoat is even it should work out well.
