theorigin's Night Lords warband (Feb/Mar/Apr done)

Post by theorigin » Wed Jan 29, 2014 4:15 am

Hello all, this is my first post on the forum.

I'm going to build and paint a "no devotion" Night Lords army, which have the following restrictions:

1. No affiliation with the Chaos powers. This means no units with the Demon USR, no Demon weapons, and can't take marked units (unit can't be marked).

2. Take little or none Heavy support units and vehicles.

3. Units must take Veterans of the Long War if possible. HQ and unit sergeants prefer taking lighting claws as combat weapon. List must include Raptors.

Here is my 1,000 point ZM list, using the attacker FOC:

HQ.
Chaos lord *1
Lighting claws *2, Jump pack, Sigil of corruption, VotLW.

Elite.
Chosen * 5
Flamer * 2, VotLW.

Troops.
Marines * 10
Heavy bolter, Champion with lighting claw, VotLW.

Marines * 10
Plasma gun * 2, Champion with plasma pistol, VotLW.

Fast Attack.
Raptors * 10
Melta gun * 2, Champion with lighting claw and melta bomb, VotLW.

Raptors * 5
Melta gun * 2, Champion with lighting claw, VotLW.

This is my commitment for February: 5 raptors with champion. I'm a bit low on cash right now, so I can only pick up 1 box of raptors.

I'm currently traveling with my family for Lunar new year, so this picture is taken on a hotel bed.

So my February commitment is finally done, the photos are kind of bad because I took it with a friend's phone at my FLGS.

Thank you so much for playing night lords and using raptors. I love the look of those units and they are such an awesome unit. Thank you...thank you, thank you!

And you painted them really well too ;)

So.... I was really busy with work during March and April, finally finished these five raptors earlier this month.

I'll try to finish ten troop CSMs this month. Since these are not as hard to paint as the raptors, I think they can be done in time.

Holly cow man those guys look great! I can't to see the rest of your stuff. You have definitely inspired me to paint my raptors. Keep up the good work.
