Night Lords Revisited

I think I'm going a tad too fast with my Pre Heresy Space Wolves project and decided to take a break from it. Had a game with my BA based Night Lords army last weekend with a Dark Eldar army and they performed extremely well (will post a bat rep if I have the mood) But when I looked back at my Night Lords, I don't know, something was amiss. Then I realised I wasn't really happy with the paint job on some of the models particularly the Atramentar Terminators. They lacked 'drama' and looked dull. I know I was aiming only tabletop quality but it seems they're not up to the standards I'm looking for. So 'editing' the Termies are the logical thing to do.

Currently I don't have a representation of one of the Atramentar's champion, namely champion Malek. I had a spare unused Space Wolf Terminator and decided to use to represent Malek. As you can see in the picture below, he's wielding a Thunder Hammer as per the novel. I purposely made the model a dirty with snow dirt, scratched armor and grisly trophies and also appeared freshly killed a Blood Angel marine. I like how the base turned out for my SW project and decided to use for my NL as well.

Here are more pictures of the 'edited' Atramentars.

I've built and started painting another Talos model but this time without a Jump Pack. I've to tweaked my army list a bit after a few rounds and found out that he's more suitable leading the Atramentars rather flying around with the Raptors. The prospect of getting shot at and die early in the game compared to the rest of the NL doesn't really appeal since he's the prophet and all. So now he will lead the Atramentars aboard the Night Stalker (Storm Raven). Below is the current look after a heavy wash of Citadel washes. I will post more pics once I finish painting it.

So that's it from for now. To all Night Lords fans, Ave Dominus Nox!


  1. The termies look really nice bro.
    Esp love the gutted marine torso :)

    Hands are from ghouls parts??

  2. Lol, yeah..i got like tons of those zombie parts, so might as well put it to good use.

  3. Awesome Night Lord you have there Faizal! Khairul mentioned about your night lord army and so I come and take a look, now, there is only one word that can describe my current state of mind "WOW!"

    I'm hooked on Aaron Dembski Bowden's night lord series too, so far anything that written by him is never disappointing (First Heretic is awesome as hell!), the last installment of Night Lord trilogy (Void Stalker) is coming out this year, be sure to grab it!

  4. thanks me! Yeah I've started solely because of the Night Lords novel by Aaron! Are u planning to start a Night Lords army as well? If yes, this year could be the right time as the new Chaos Codex is coming out soon! Currently I based my NL army using the BA codex (booo!..hisss!) lol!

    About the new novel, yeah I'm planning to get it once the ebook is already out.

    1. Yeah, sort of wanting to start.. either Night Lord or Word Bearer(damn you Aaron...), (I guess I will start it only after 6ED/New codex is out, but will stock up chaos stuff starting now =D) until this moment I still haven manage to get any game with my (under construction, almost done, almost...) Black Legion.. LOL, hobby noob here.

    2. No problem dude, we've all been noob once lol! Take your time, I'm slowly building an Iron Warriors army as well other than my Space Wolves and my Vampire Counts..I'm wondering if have too much on my hands already, hehe..
