@ Lord Thorn: Thank, buddy! I don't get the reference. Johannes Kirchner is a musicion/composer, but how is that related to eviscertion? I'm intrigued. :)

 

@ Biohazard: Aww, Thorn just beat you to it. I made you a flamer toting dude - would that be acceptable? Thanks for providing a name! :tu:

Well first off, that dev squad is amazing. I love the tech marine use as a Sgt, and the cherub is an idea I'm going to shamelessly steal for my own Imperial forces.

For your consideration: XIII Assault Squad Vexillarius, Aldrik Zol'tara. Seeing as how he is carrying the Vex, I imagine Aldrik is devoted to the Emperor, so much so that the Chaplains have taken note of his zeal, seeing in him the potential for another of their number.

Now that you mention it, I found Risa as well, but Bellos Galiko is not a Star trek reference, is it? If you ever do Smurfs, Call a Stormraven pilot something like Titus Pullo, and I bet you can find a place for a Lucius Vorenus somewhere. ;)

I don't care for Star Trek, though I do like Banned from Argo. I've been wondering if that song could be rewritten to fit Warhammer 40,000...

Wow, guys and gals, thanks for the multitude of replies!

I got a bit side tracked, as I realized I hadn't made a Call of Chaos vow yet. So I made one, and Lo and Behold I ended up vowing six units. I guess I'll have to step up my game if I am to become a Warmaster and not a Spawn....

 

This weekend of course also saw the release of Burning of Prospero, and of course I got a box. I traded the Custodes (minus the banner) for a squad of MkIII marines, because I'll probably never going to play Custodes and with my HH Iron Warriors probably need TONS of MkIII. There's a tinge of regret in the back of my mind, as I love the Custodes models, but financially this was the right decision. Yeah, I'll just keep telling myself that.

 

Anyway, on to the first of two Night Lords Havoc Squads with lascannons. I used the BoP plastic MkIII marines - what a joy to have them! Curiously these seem to ahve an even bigger empty space hidden in their lower legs than teh MkIV marines. When I drill into the soles of their feet for the paper clip holding pins, there's a jolt of free room after only 2mm drilling. There's also FW NL shoulder pads and the excellent Night Lords trophy bits that a 3d party Russian designer released a couple months back. I opted for Chaos Warrior helmets for them, because I like the feral look itgives them. I'm not quite sure I'll keep this, though...

Replies!

@ dantay_xv: YES! First price for you. But it's not only Riza - it's also the fact that the Riza Government was called the Riza Hedonate - which I made into a Slaanesh-dedicated pleasure cult. ;) :D

 

@ Biohazard: It is! Most definitely. 

 

@ Trysanna: Yes! Thanks for naming someone. Awesome name too. And I'll take the bit of fluff along with him :)

 

@ SalvationOfReason: You're so cute. Yes, DS9 featured Riza, but it was TOS that first had Riza. So you got the crumbs, but the cookie goes to dantay_xv.... :P ;)

 

@ Race Bannon: Why be ashamed? Don't (self-)hate, celebrate! 

 

@ Quixus: No, Bellos Galiko is a name Acquilanus suggested, which I 40Kified. It's Latin for Gallic Wars, and a shameless and slightly corny reference to Caesar's Comentarii de Bello Gallico, his self-promoting tales of his exploits in what is now France and Belgium. Also, that's a propper schooling of Race Bannon. 

 

@ Vairocanum: Cheers! Yeah, I had to, I only saw the two Inquisitorial thingies when I was already painting it, so made something up to factor them into the overarching fluff of the squad. :tu:

 

@ Lord Thørn: How should I have known Hannes Krichberg = Jack Churchill? His wikipedia page doesn't mention the name Hannes Kirchberg, and I also don;t quite understand the reference in regards to the guy you picked (although I'm known to be a bit dense) - unless it's the fact that Chruchill brought a broadsword to a gunfight and the mini you chose has the biggest sword... Enlighten me! I demand it.

 

@ Race Bannon: Yeah yeah. Face it, you got schooled! And you outed yourself as a trekkie! High fives ALL AROUND!!

 

@ Quixus & Lord Thørn: Kirchhügel also doesn't show up on his wiki page. What are you guys blathering about??

 

@ Knight of the Raven: ??? You've thoroughly lost me, buddy.    OOOooooh so you don't like gravguns, but you do use them!?!?!? Why else would you not have them to spare? Huh? Got you there, buddy! :P

What Teentengee said ^^ According to behind the name, Hannes and Jack are both variations on Johannes(John), and I used a quick bit of Google Translator for Kirchberg ^^

 

And yes, bringing a sword to a gunfight (and being totally badass about it) earns him the right to get an Eviscerator in 40k in my book :P

 

Nothing complicated really ^_^

Aug, thought the whole disrupting Rizas weather system was a reference to the episode of DS9 where that in fact happened :P
Cute? Pfft.
The BoP mk3s are gorgeous. I've found it's really easy to diversify leg poses on them, simply because the legs are already separate pieces.

Edit - the Havocs are looking swell. My inner IVth Legion approves!

It's gravcannons I dislike, not gravguns. I love the latter's look. They're on my magnetized Raven Guard outriders. Of course, I wouldn't even give their rules a second glance if plasmaguns didn't get hot.

Thanks guys!

I finished painting the NIght Lords Havocs. They were initally a drag, but t°later a blast to paint. I realized half-way through them that it has been over a year that I painted any Night Lord, and over two years since I did any infantry models in their colours. Huh. These are also the first I didn't paint with Vallejo Liquid Old Gold but with GW Retributor armour and I have to say the GW paint is a fine, fine substitute. I'm not going back to Old Gold - if only because painting with alcohol-based paints is such a hassle.  

 

About the pictures, it's weird - either the light is off because it's a bit nippy outside and the sun is lower because of the time of year, or Night Lords are just harder to photograph right because of the colour combo. Anyway, picture time!

@ Teetengee: Hahaha you made me go lol

 

@ SalvationOfReason: You're right! That was that episode and I guess the fluff I concocted synced more with that particular episode than with any other! But I swear I just had  Riza in mind when writing the fluff. ;) I'm sorry to disappoint you with the VIII colours on the mini's that you surely hoped would be IVth.... :P

 

@ Knight of the Raven: Oh well, you can't win 'm all! I realy like the brutal, feral look the Chaos Helmets give marines. :tu: I'm not sure I would use plasma even without get's hot. I really like the salvo rule as it still alows fffor charger after firing them... Thoughts?

 

@ Trysanna: Thanks! The sisters might end up as a liason to my fists, but don't count on it. I mean, the Imperial Fists are the most likely chapter/legion EVER to have a Custodian guard as they're based on Terra, but I just don't like allies.

the warrior helmets looks ace there, I hope a mk3 or two made it into the second squad as they are very cool and it's nice to have a mix.
