Night Lord's Support Unit Finished and Army So Far

I have finished my legion support squad and tried to work the effect on the Terminator's power sword into the lightning claw on the sergeant. pretty pleased with it as it is but may go back and add in some lightning patterns when my tiny brushes arrive. I've spent some time moving several miniatures around and changing some of the arms and weapons on them so I at least had a usable force as it stands.

I had been working on parts of several different units and thought this would be a better way to go about things. The two tactical squads don't have special weapons or heavy weapons at the moment but I still have the two flamers painted and am planning on getting the heavy flamers from Forgeworld for each unit. These will hopefully be magnetised so I can switch out which weapons I use.

The additional five marines for each unit are nearly built and ready to go but I first need to finish off my Atrementar Terminators before I can get back to those. I guess after that It will be a case of adding additional units to the army. Armour is something I am lacking at the moment and, continuing with the finishing things I am working on first, I will add two Rhinos to the army as my next purchases.

The Rhinos also present a problem because I may need to do a slightly different scheme so they don't end up looking like something from the movie Tron. I figure I will start them with an all over base of Kantor Blue as apposed to the normal black base coat.

Enough rambling, C&C welcome as always.

Night Lord's Librarian WIP

Evening all,

I have started my Librarian, just the armour panels and base at the moment but hope to get a fair bit more done on him over the weekend. I absolutely love this model, so much detail.

Here we go:

Night Lord's Vs. Dark Angels

So today I played a couple of small games against Raztalin from the B&C. I lost both games using the Chaos Codex but was a great laugh and also got a couple of  pretty cool scenic pictures :)

Painting Night Lords

I have been asked by a few people how I paint my Night Lords so i have spent this morning making a quick tutorial explaining how I paint the main armour panels on each miniature.

Stage 1:

Starting with a basecoat of black primer and then painting in all the armour panels with Abaddon Black.

Stage 2:

I painted in armour all the edges of the armour with a 1/1 mix of Abaddon Black and Kantor Blue (Regal Blue is the old colour)

Stage 3:

This time I painted Kantor Blue over the areas leaving the previous colour showing towards the centre of each panel.

Stage 4:

I then washed the armour on the model with Drakenhof Nightshade (old colour is Asurman Blue). My pot is fairly old so seems to give a slight gloss effect when dry which I don't mind at all.

Stage 5:

This time I painted a 1/1 mix of Kantor Blue and Caledor sky (old colour is Enchanted Blue) over the areas as an edge highlight.

Stage 6:

This time I added Fenrisian Grey (old colour is Space Wolves Grey) as a very thin edge highlight and not letting it go to the darker parts of the model such as the inside of the legs. You can also repeat stages 5 and 6 for the lightning patterns, just adding in pure Fenrisian Grey at the points where the lightning arches and splits.
