Description: Epic Night Lords

Well I figured it was time to start posting some progress on my epic stuff. I've not decided on the background fluff for the army yet but eventually it will incorporate troops from other legions.

Anyhow, heres some pics of what I've got and the rather small amount I've painted so far.

Here's the army as it stands at the moment. Still missing 3 Knight Errants, Stormblades, Ordinatus Armageddon & Imperator Titan.

Night Lords Infantry, not much progress as you can see, I've painted up one base of Tactical and one of Assault, I'm hoping to sit down and get the rest painted this week.

Jeez, something tells me that's more than 3,000pts.

Loving the stuff done so far dude, especially the tiny Night Lords Legion Symbol. The colour scheme for the knights is also quite impressive.

Lovely stuff - I echo Ahriman on the awesome Night Lords symbol; and I think you've got a great colour scheme down for the scale. It's easy to get cluttered at this size, but the clean contrast between the red and blue (and the groovy terror markings) makes them obviously the Night Lords.

I like the basing on the forgeknights and Warhounds, and the posing on the Reaver is awesome.

Looking forward to seeing a completed formation of assault marines (they're a spiffy formation to keep your motivation up, as there's just four of 'em, and no transports!), and to seeing the painted army build. :)

Cheers guys :)

@Ahriman: yeah I've got waaay over 3k but oh well. I've managed to con a few of my mates into playing Epic too so hopefulyl we should be able to have some huge battles worthy of the crusade...once we learn the rules! As for the Knights I jsut wanted something different since they always seem to be blue and yellow when you see pictures of them. Plus it will tie in nicely with the White/Gold scheme of my Titans.

@Apologist: I was rather inpressed myself at the legion symbol and the tiny little lightning bolts on thier legs, now lets see if I can do the same on 200+ models and not go insane.

I actualyl kindof stole the idea for the bases from you, well your Ultramarines at least, I'm going to do them with a little plaque on each with the engines name. Speaking of which, do you know anywhere that does the lipped bases in bigger sizes? The biggest I can find is 50mm and I need 70mm for any Warlords I get and 100m for the Imperator which is winging its way in the post to me right now :) it shall be aptly named the "Terminus Ultimo"

Wil lbe getting some painting done tonight as my Knight Erraants and Ordinatus Armageddon arrived today as well :)

Sorry, don't know where you can find rolled shoulder bases in those sizes, but Dragonforge do lots of large bases that would be suitable.
Here's the bevelled-edge (GW-style) base blanks

No I think about it, Privateer Press might do 100mm rolled shoulder bases for their new super-giant thingies (sorry, don't know the official name).

You might consider trying an attack-bike base (available from lots of compies) or the oval from a Dreadknight/Valkyrie base for Terminus Ultimo a round base will take up a huge amount of space and make things awkward for movement etc.

Wow lovely stuff, really like the old retro-style rhinos and predators. And of course more squats will be awesome user posted image
