"Because the Wolves kill cleanly, and we do not. They also kill quickly, and we have never done that, either. They fight, they win, and they stalk back to their ships with their tails held high. If they were ever ordered to destroy another Legion, they would do it by hurling warrior against warrior, seeking to grind their enemies down with the admirable delusions of the 'noble savage'. If we were ever ordered to assault another Legion, we would virus bomb their recruitment worlds; slaughter their serfs and slaves; poison their gene-seed repositories and spend the next dozen decades watching them die slow, humiliating deaths. Night after night, raid after raid, we'd overwhelm stragglers from their fleets and bleach their skulls to hang from our armour, until none remained. But that isn't the quick execution the Emperor needs, is it? The Wolves go for the throat. We go for the eyes. Then the tongue. Then the hands. Then the feet. Then we skin the crippled remains, and offer it up as an example to any still bearing witness. The Wolves were warriors before they became soldiers. We were murderers first, last, and always!"

—Jago Sevatarion, speaking about his VIIIth Legion

Well, it's high time I started a log for my Night Lords, seeing as how I no longer have my Emperor's Children, so I've got a hole to fill.

 

So, this is where I'll be recording the progress of my little band of murderers, as they grow larger.

 

Also for those wondering the colour scheme (and for me so I don't continually forget what the colours for the lightning is laugh.png), here's a breakdown:

Fluff pieces I've done up involving Night Lords (may or may not involve my Warband):

Looking good! The eyes on those Plague Marines are something else! Also, brrrrrrrr, the thought of Night Lord Plague Marines is a bit scary...

Messy workstation is messy.... :lol:

Working on the eight Marines to make the two six-mans in the first post into two 10-man squads rocking 2 Reaper Chaincannons each (my goal is to make it so there's three like that for Maximum Dakka. Just need one more box of Havocs).

Thanks! And yes, Night Lords Plague Marines are probably the most terrifying thing possible. I had an idea for a bit of fluff for them, I'll post it when it's done.

 

But to give an idea: The Plague Marines for my Night Lords are the remainder of their company's Breacher Squads.

Now to finish the other four to make the other six-man into a ten, which will then leave one squad left to finish painting :lol:

Coming along nicely.

 

Curze’s blood spatters and the sorcerer’s green object source lighting are quite impressive!

Thanks? It's not mine, but I felt it's fitting

Finished Third Claw last week, forgot to post the finished picture here:

Additionally, I've finally come up with a name for my Warband: The Fangs of the Father (kudos to anyone who knows what that's referencing).

 

I also came up with a bit of fluff because someone at the local Warhammer store is running a narrative campaign, and completely by accident set it in the Demeter Sector.... The site of the Pandorax Campaign (which is perfect for literally all of the players, as all of them are using forces that were represented there :lol:).

 

Said fluff:
Pandorax Campaign (959-961.M41): The Fangs of the Father sent a strike force of three-hundred Astartes to aid Abaddon the Despoiler in his assault on Pythos. While they stayed out of the ground battle this force, under the command of Targos Kastax 'the Breaker', do battle on the Imperial fleet. With numerous Dreadclaws and Kharybdis, they lead a direct attack on the Dark Angels Strike Cruiser Caliban's Fury. In the ensuing battle aboard the ship, the sorcerers and techmarines of the Night Lords send out a psychically enhanced blast of scrapcode, scrambling the Imperial fleet's targeting systems. In the chaos of the battle, Caliban's Fury is captured after numerous Night Lords terminators teleport directly onto the bridge, slaughtering the command crew of the vessel. Caliban's Fury makes an emergency warp jump and disappears from the battle, and is assumed lost with all hands.

Nostramo's Retribution: A Strike Cruiser of the Fangs of the Father, the first sighting of which was 961.M41. The craft is often used in ambushes and raiding of Imperial shipping lanes, as strangely, it gives off the IFF of a Dark Angels vessel. Only when within close visual range, and seeing the symbols of the VIII Legion, does its victims realize the mistake of letting the predatory craft into their midst.

It's specifically because he said he wanted to troll the Dark Angel player and asked me to do it for him :lol:

Just finished the Dark Vengeance Chaos Lord I've modified ever so slightly (added the metal Night Lords Chaos Lord's backpack) to fit into my Night Lords:

I'm really, REALLY happy with how the cape came out. Could have done the sword better, but it looks good from Tabletop distance, so....

Ugh, who thought it was a good idea to make a model that's 70% trim?

Really nice! I just found about your Night Lords. I was scrolling the topic and just about to ask, where are the raptors? Then noticed you had few of them built ;) Would love to see some more pictures of them! The old Chaos Raptors are one of my favourite minis :)

I'd take more pictures, but they're currently not finished, the pictures that are in here are what they look like. It's because I need to get the OOP old-school jump packs (friend of mine is ordering them soon-ish) so I can make copies of them.
