Those chaps look savage, the chaos bikers have some nice brutal details that suit the Night Lords well.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Breachers done; I felt like I was painting them forever! Next up maybe treat myself to doing a command squad.

The bloodstains on the boarding shields are a GREAT touch, most appropriate for the Night Lords.

Those look fantastic dude, how did you do the red hand prints? I'm loving the shields, they look printed, is that the case?

Thanks guys!

I used fallout hobbies bloody handprints but I put them on too early in my stages so you could barely see them, at the end I sort of traced over what I could see with Blood for the Blood god and added splatters with the same and a toothbrush.

The shields are from popgoesthemonkey

No worries, they are fun! Though the decals are thicker than gw/fw ones so it takes a couple layers of gloss to blend them in.

Really nicely done, I think you've nailed the look of those guys. The bloody prints works really well, it's a lot more subtle than draping them in bloody trophies and I can imagine them battering their way through a defensive line crushing the enemy under foot as they claw at the shields.

Big fan of these. Love the banner bearer, though I think he looks at home on the same sort of base as the others!
 

Excellent work. Are they Atramentar?

Depends on what he feels like running them, but Atramentar were typically depicted as having the Nostraman Lion pad on their right shoulder. Though less lion, more sabre-tooth if we're following Sevatars' FW model.

Those look like the Pop Goes the Monkey pads.

Nah I don't think my small force would warrant having any Atramentar just yet, they're relatively small fry!

 

As HNL says the pauldrons are from pop goes the monkey - the spikes are cool but I think I would try and use the contekar shoulders for the legion icon if I were to do it again.

Great work on the command squad, the spikes are really brutal and the chainmail marks them out as elites.

 

Looking forward to seeing the Land Raider!

This weekend I had my first couple of games of 30k in prep for my first event at the end of the month.

I asked to play against 'something fast' and 'something slow', and no mercy - mistake 1/1

 

I had a delegatus, two terror squads with volkite chargers, a night raptor squad and a unit of hussars in a terror assault RoW.

 

RG had a beatstick praetor, dark furies, mor deythan, tac squad and assault squad.

My deployment against the Raven Guard decap strike; two drab forces fighting in a drab city #photogenic

 

7FXFHmgl.jpg?1

This terror squad is immediately charged and destroyed by dark furies and a praetor. My bad, boys. 2/2

 

xCkY1j1l.jpg

 

My hussars charge into the fray to avenge their brethren, (or grab their stuff) but are cut down with ease. Should have learned 3/3

 

gcOGWG9l.jpg

The other terror squad hides takes cover to avoid fire from mor deythan skulking around my deployment zone

 

FJZpYjYl.jpg?1

After considering their options, the terror squad opted to choom and charge the assault marines. They wipe the unit but are then shot to pieces by the tactical squad lurking in the building next to them.

 

qZwtBngl.jpg

My Night Raptors eventually deep strike in miles away and spend a couple of turns getting to the action - wiping out a tactical squad before being shot by mor deythan, charged by dark furies, and killed. 4/4

 

With that I was tabled; juked out of my shoes by the RG.

 

 

Next up was an Imperial Fists force - two units of breachers, some cataphactii, and a quad launcher/gun? 

MZ2cT5Fl.jpg

A terror squad once again gets charged ASAP by the terminators and praetor, but three of them manage to survive. One terminator got plinked in overwatch which was fun.

My night raptors counterattack the terminators and pretty much just bounce off the 3++, also my huntsmaster gets his head caved in a challenge.

Next turn, my delegatus accepts the praetor's challenge, rends with his headsmans axe and doubles the IF out. Fun!

 

n1izUtll.jpg

After eventually grinding out the terminators, my night raptors turn towards the breacher squad behind and get drilled by bolter fire. The delegatus survives, charges the breacher squad, wins combat and runs them all down. Fun!

 

On the other side of the board, terror squad 2 and hussars attempt to kill the second breacher squad, but get shot by the quad gun/fail first charge/whiff a load of attacks/fail morale and scurry away.

 

AseY87Pl.jpg

Look at those smug breachers.

 

Two not very close games but I had a good time.

Did not like paragon blades, plasma, dark furies, T5 breachers, big 3++ termi shields or passing fear tests. Pls remove.

However thoroughly enjoyed night fighting, preferred enemy, rending, deflagrate and outnumbering people.

Bang on with the muted, dark blue. Some NLs are far too bright. Also very impressed with the blood spatter on the breacher shields. Looks veyr credible.

Finally finished this LR - I did a lot of procrastinating research before getting round to painting it.
