Title: Children of Old Night

I've recently been playing games where my two sons use my PH World Eaters versus my "Traitor Guard." They're modeled to represent the Blood Pact of the Guant's Ghosts series, but in PH terms, I'm calling them the "Children of Old Night," just another benighted world that has turned to the worship of the Warp Powers... until the Legions show up with other plans. When the gaming gets to the Heresy itself, these guys can obviously represent Horus' corrupted Imperial Army perfectly.

Here's the command squad, plus a Rogue Psycher. The armored guy represents Iron Hand Straken, the big monster Lifeward counts as Nork Dedog.

Infantry (plus their platoon commander and a "commisar" champion of Khorne). PLENTY more of these guys...

Special Weapons Squad with three suicide bombers (demo charges.) I don't want to jinx myself but these guys are scary accurate with the scatter dice...

I'm not sure where to start laying out comments on how awesome I think this is! First of all, great idea and concept, and it's really good you can use this to represent different forces (I'm sure you could even get a Necromunda gang in there somewhere!)

I love the variety of models you have used, really effective use of some old minis and conversions, and you've made them all sit well together because of the unified colour scheme and style. They look to be really well painted as well, I think these guys are definitely deserving of some close up photos in higher res! user posted image

And of course +1 for using some kind of traitor dwarfling! :)

Here's "Bloodwen, Daughter of Khorne" who can represent IronHand Straken or a Herald of Khorne, or whoever. She's 90% done, just planning to add a little flock and a few strands of concertina wire to her base.

Looks amazing (disgusting? :D) !

What miniature have you used, and what stuff have you included on the base there?

Looking good.

Is Bloodwen, converted from the old Lilleth model or just some old wyches?

I echo Pacific in saying that the base for her is impressively appropriate.

Bloodwen has Old Lelith's body, the face of a witch elf, and the hair of a daemonette. I'm gonna swap out her sword for a hellblade, 'cause I think it would look cooler. The base is the pile of corpses from the Vampire Counts Corpse Cart with a few very small changes (for example, I cut away the rats gnawing on bodies because these have been freshly killed..)

Thanks for the kind compliments!

Finally cobbled together another Stalk Tank (count as chimeras) and some Priests to add a little close-combat "oomph" to the army.

Amazing stuff mate, looks like this army must be a nice outlet to let your imagination run riot!
