Default We Have Come For You! A Night Lords project.

Having taken a four year break from 40k to concentrate on various other systems, I've decided to take the plunge back into the murky pool that is Games Workshop. After selling off a whole load of hobby stuff on eBay, I picked up The Burning of Prospero box, a squad of MkIV marines, the Contemptor and the two HQ minis from the Betrayal at Calth as a starting point.

Having previously overwhelmed myself on projects with a sea of grey plastic, I've decided to go a little easier this time by only assembling and painting a few minis at a time. So far it's just a Lord and a five man squad. I will assemble a five man squad of raptors as well, then get started on the painting.

While the army list will be based on the Chaos Space Marine codex and the new Traitor Legion supplement, the minis will be pretty much all pre-Heresy themed, except for the GW upgrade pack with all the winged helmets that I will use to denote squad Sgts.

I'm not sure what rules to use for the Nostroman Chainglaive, but it will be prominent amongst the army. The 30k rules for them make them basically two handed frost blades with rending, so I'll cost them at something similar to frost weapons.

First up, the nominal new boss. I converted the crozius to a glaive, and while I'm happy with it, the fact the haft is hidden in the cloak makes it look like a standard chain sword, but it'll do for now.



This is the first squad in the army. I'm going to do the squads in groups of five for now. There's not much NL specific bits beyond the shoulder pads and the odd helmet for now.




I took a shot at converting up a chainglaive for the Sgt, and of course FW then release them for sale a couple of weeks later.


Tomorrow I'll assemble a squad of raptors, and then weather permitting get a basecoat on and start painting.

What well manicured hands for a TRAITOROUS RETCH! Stand by for atomic purgation!

The sgts glaive looks quite good, would you consider putting a slight curve in the hard, would make it look more line the forge world one?

Very nice! Love seeing all the CSM conversions coming out with the new book. Love Night Lords. (That ADB Omnibus was the best of their books.) Good work!

I tried bending a bit, but the rod is hollow so it crimps rather than bends. I don't think it's a biggy, because Sevatar's has no bend in it. I preordered the FW ones yesterday, so there'll be few enough conversions from here on in.

Looking good so far, have you thought about adding raptors, maybe the forgeworld night lord specific ones? Especially in relation to the new traitor legions formations.

I was going to put a squad of raptors together next, but before I got the chance a plastic contemptor made its way onto my doorstep. I am going to Night Lords the shot out of this thing.

Absolutely fantastic kit. Put it together in less than half an hour. I will be doing a fair bit of conversion work on it, like twisting it at the waist, and possibly repositioning one of the legs to make the pose a bit more dynamic. Considering it will probably be used as a proxy helbrute, I might add the tentacles from the helbrute kit in place of the claw.

Will you magnetize the beast or just glue him up for a specific role? I was going to glue mine with twin kheres, and just use him as a force multiplier but having second thoughts now
