Hi brothers, this is my first post on the board. I am currently working on a night lords force. Im going for a mixed armour look and have got hold of a couple of forgeworld kits to mix and match with regular space marine kits. Im hoping this will give the impression of a force which has been salvaging and stealing different armour over the millenia. So without further ado here is my first test model:

Still gotta get a drill and sort out that barrel but apart from that what do you guys think?

I love how you did the paint on the helmet and really like the clever use of the backpack. Mk III armor really doesn't allow for much space for the lightning, though. I like it overall and am interested in seeing more.

I like him. The destroyed eagle is a nice touch. The freehands on the helmet and shoulder pad are fantastic. I dont like the blood though.

very nice.

freehand is very well done. blood looks good in its positioning but not 'wet' as you would expect it to be

also liking the metal backs to the legs for a bit more detail and variety in the scheme

I really like the guy ripping his helmet off, I'm going to use that for one of my future champion marines or so. And I love them all sofar, the MkIII guy though could look a ittle scary, but I guess that can wait until you paint him in awesomness. You are making me so hyped on this army, that now I want to make mine like that too :cuss

I am digging this army and I like your style of mixing different armor pieces etc... That to me is what a CSM army is all about. Pillage and plunder whatever pieces of armor and weapons you can get your hands on to continue the fight and watch the galaxy burn!

I most say, that these are some great models!

I too am also painting (well, sooner or later) a Night Lords force, and I was wondering if you would be so kind as to share what paint you used for your bat wing helm crests on the Marine reloading his bolter?

That marine hacking up the gaurdsmen looks sick!

Thanks for all the encouragement i appreciate it and will keep churning out these guys.

@ sinners red: Cheers mate i had a look at your thread all those boxes remind me of my table at the moment. Pretty daunting stuff looking forward to seeing your project come together. the red recipe is really simple. its just khorne red with a nuln oil wash, then go back over it with more khorne red leaving the recesses, then highlight with evil sunz scarlet. i finish the model with a matt varnish as i allways manage to rub off the top layers with my fingers plus it takes the shine off which i think fits the theme.

No but seriously - I wish I could paint that fast.

Nice conversions here, nice painting. Although I'd add a bit more bright highlighting for red parts.

IMHO, of course.

Sorry, my English isn't very good.

This guy's my favourite - a more subtle conversion than the others, but he looks like an absolute bad-a$$.

Looking forward to seeing him painted.

Love it
Its, "space wolf," not "Space Wolf," or "SPACE WOLF," or "spacewolf" I'm the only Astartes cool enough to spell his name without capital letters! But if you're feeling decorous, you may add a "THE" in front of it.

Next guy is about to charge in with his squad and hes picked out his foe; "YOUUUUUUU!" Also hes not a techmarine... he just killed one and stole his pouldron lol.

And to finish up my latest bit of painting.

These are beautifully painted, and the conversions are top notch. I like your use of imperial armour mixed with Chaos. The skull painted on the test model makes the loyalist helmet look suitably scary. I might have to borrow this idea for a chaplin...

Bolter dude looks ace!

I'm not usually a fan of the "everyone wears a skull-helm" school of thought, but your dudes may have converted me...

Good work, fella! Now paint more! More I say!
