"Ultima ratio regum. (The final argument of kings)"

 

Welcome to the armor depot of the 42nd Armor Company of the 8th Legiones astartes. You read that right! I'm doing something out of the ordinary.This is the journey of a unique company found within the Night Lords Legion. This is the documentation of a 30k/40k force centered around armor. Big guns, big armor.

 

This thread was started a while back, so going forward I'm going to allow folks to jump around to key points. Finished conversions, finished paintjobs, lightbox photos, the like. I won't be removing the WIP's, so you can see the creative processes, but this index should allow you to navigate easily. 

NAVIGATION INDEX:

+++PERSONNEL+++

I have a shot of a dreadnought I was making for this company too. I'm not sure if I want to grab Deredo's or Leviathans for his ancient brothers.

Looking great so far my friend! I like the look you've got going on the armor, and the posing is excellent! Keep it up my Nostraman friend! Looking forward to seeing more!

Nice paint work with the blood splatters, really digging the crest of spikes of the fella in the second picture.

Hello one and all. It's been a while, and the Warp hasn't been kind to me. It has been rather kind to the 42nd company. Without further ado... 

 

Here are some WIP shots.

And some marines of the 42nd.

So... are you saying that Heavy Armour is the ultimate answer to life, the universe and everything?


"I have of late - but wherefore I know not - lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilential congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust? man delights not me: no, nor woman neither. Nor woman neither."

For me, the Sicaran is a no brainer in the Night Lords armoury. Packs a punch and is a “fast” tank so it’s the best of both worlds.

Loving your stuff so far, looking forward to a Night Lords armour company. Should be cool.

I've got three deimos predators waiting to be assembled. Once I finish those, the Land Raider, we'll see about a Sicaran. msn-wink.gif

 

Have another few tacticals that I missed uploading earlier

Damn, your models look intimidating. Is the Land Raider draped in human skin, or did it GROW skin due to the mutating influence of the Daemon possessing it?

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

I love the coherency of your unit's colour scheme. And they radiate a brutality befitting one of the worst traitor legions! How the hell could the emperor not see that coming??

Well done :)

Some armor has rolled off of the Forges, ready to deploy for the 42nd...

This is but one of three deimos predators I've got lined up. they're magnetized to be used with all possible options. I also wanted some opinions. Blue or black bolter casings?

Why are chains wrapped around the Predator's twin-lascannon? Do you plan to suspend severed heads from the muzzles, to better intimidate the enemy? Maybe use the lascannon barrels as a display rack for a mutilated corpse?

Chains because... why not? But I guess I could dangle a head from the chain at the end there!

Impressive. As for teeth, maybe paint them silver, to unnerve people and make the Night Lord more intimidating?

Every motorpool needs an engineer, and that's where this guy steps in. An oddity, I'm sure. You have no idea how hard it was to find references for "Night Lord techmarine"! They simply don't seem to exist! Which is odd, because someone has to warn the bloody terror squads that they're stapling trophies too close to vital components, or not using "allocated trophy racks as appropriated", right?

He's still a WIP, but you'll see just what he's in charge of upkeeping sooner than him, I'd wager.

Your Techmarine looks promising. Is he from the pre-Heresy Legion? (I expect the Dark Mechanicum's disciples to wear something other than the red of Mars, as they no longer follow Mars' orthodox teachings.)

I approve of extraneous chains. The answer to "should I add a chain to this" should rarely be no.

Hello everyone! I didn't mean to leave you all in the dark so long. I finished the bloody landraider! Those tracks were... censored.gif Actually, I finished a lot of things. I just haven't took pictures and posted them here. So without further adue... 

 

Update on the predator from prior.

 

KHv3kX6.jpg?1

Still a work in progress, but good enough that i've played a few matches of 40k with it. Sponsons are magnetized, turret is magnetized. 

1EoMOvn.jpg?1

 

Going to have to split my post up for further additions, but let's see what else I've cooked up...

Another ancient has been added to the 42nd.

 

askh4SH.jpg?1

TLnABcs.jpg?1AnlH0of.jpg?1

 

He really needs a name! Suggestions are open!

 

A minor update to the techmarine from prior...

 

MGA7LYo.jpg?1

 

...and other command officers of the 42nd. From left to right, a praetor/captain. Techmarine forgefather. (Painfather?) Apothecary (turned sorcerer in 40k, he's entirely magnetized) with a moritat/chaos lord on the furthest right. His left hand and coil come away to be replaced with a chainglaive or whatever I so choose. Can't wait to show you when he's finished. 

 

nLLNQ5Z.jpg?1

 

Some marines from second claw. 

 

I'll leave you all with this WIP. More armor!

 

uzwQSYG.jpg?1

 

I have some destroyers in the works (raptors for 40k), and once all of this is finished, you'll get to see it first. I'm already wishlisting a leviathan and maybe some sicarans. ;)
