Yea I thought the Night Lords were over the top. I enjoyed the book but I don't want the villains to be bad guys, doing bad things because they want to achieve some bad end. It's not interesting. Antagonists who use brutal means to achieve some kind of positive outcome (even if misguided) is relatable, but most Night Lord stuff I've read (only HH) is just them being evil for the sake of it. The World Eaters, Emperor's Children, Sons of Horus, Thousand Sons etc. are more nuanced

Kurze is somewhat more nuanced at times (even if I'm sick of reading about him) but overall I think the Night Lords are one of the most poorly handled legions in the HH series so far, which is a shame because I like some aspects of their background
