Hey Xeno.

Wow, 118 pages. What a hobbying triumph. I still get your pictures emailed to my inbox but I wanted to post here to let you know that I still subscribe to this thread and no matter what you do, you're still an inspiration. I hope I can paint even a fraction of what you can and I look at your images when I try to elevate my painting skill.

Peace out,
Phil

Personally I think you've nailed the PH Night Lords perfectly and I'm talking GC Night Lords, I've always seen your work on them as the Legion maybe 2 years after Cruze showed up so they are only just beginning to get influenced by his personality and the recruits from his hell hole of a world. I think turning them into AL would be a lot of work and possibly not quite worth it.

More excellent work.

I am not a fan of sideways crests; however, each to their own.

The mud (as seen on the unpainted miniatures) are simply different variants of the GW texture paints with mixed in extra PVA glue and sand/flock (which I got in huge bags for ages ago in about 3-4 different sizes) for more "crunchyness", then a few drops of water and some extra paint. I paint my bases along with the miniatures so any colour on the mud in the building process is purely coincidental.

Breathtaking conversions, can't wait to see them painted!!!!
In those pictures the Cataphractii was early in development. They have since been fleshed out somewhat and gotten a few more squad members. More on that on a later date when I've received the latest FW-order so I can complete some weapon conversions. Hang in there!

Thank you for your kind words, Phil, they are very helpful in getting me through my rough patches when I'd otherwise lack motivation completely. Glad to have your subscription, and happy if I can give you anything back, be it motivation or inspiration or something else.

That's where I'm heading at the moment. I'm thinking Terran marines with a few new Nostraman recruits but somewhat further into the storyline. So they're influenced by Curze but still heavily retain their terran heritage since their company consists mostly of terran marines still.

Thanks, mate. Personally I've started to warm up to the sideways crests (as well as the other crests). Sometimes things grow on you as you go along.

Thanks! Always glad to hear! Hopefully I'll be able to get even more amazing work in here as I go along

It's been a while since the last update (obviously). It's not that I haven't done any work on my NLs, it's just that I haven't been on the mood to take pictures and go through the process to get them into the thread - mostly since a lot of things have happened in my personal life that has taken quite a toll on me.

So, all in all, there are more WIP pictures from different squads and units to come as soon as I can be arsed to take more pictures and type out more in depth comments about the process in making them. Till then you'll have to be satisfied by this guy:

Minor sculpting occurred after that picture was taken. I started to get the detailing to a level I'm satisfied with (which is uncommon). Sculpting will continue to fill in gaps and create more minor details. It's all going in baby steps though to avoid putting a big fat finger in the middle of something that took me 1 hour to sculpt to this level of detail. I'm starting to like this project more and more for every step I proceed though, so there's really no lack of motivation:


Night is coming.

Till next time

Oh I'm getting all tingly in my special places. That crest looks awesome. Really good to hear that your motivation is back for the boys from the night!
