Greetings night-walkers! I have returned to this forum to create a blog about my 40k army: The seventh company of the Night Lords Legion.

First up I'll present you with my worst painted minis :tongue:
These are my first attempt at painting chaos marines and I did them about two years ago:

Claw#1, aka Bolter muchachos:

And close up of this guy who is probably one of my favorites:

As you can see I tried to make tiny conversions on each of these models, mainly repositioning the chainsword hands for more dramatic poses. These were painted less than a year ago.

Farewell once again! Comments and critique are welcome as always!

Cool to see a new plog up and running here :)

I really like the bases you've made. Cool touch with the lightning also.

If I were to criticize it would be on the horns and bone part. Atm they are looking a bit too dark and if you lightened them up to stand out more I think it would really lift the minis.

Looking forward to seeing more and yes, forum is a bit slow now days. Have you checked out the Turning the World to Darkness? Hopefully it will spark some activity. If you feel like painting an undead mini you are more than welcome to enter.

Thanks for your kind words and advice @Mad 'At ! And thanks for letting me know about the competition! I'm digging through my Vampire Counts unpainted stuff now to find anything that catches my fancy ;)

I'm hoping to add Night Lords Terminators to my Space Hulk collection, they've been on long term hiatus while I reassess what loyalist Terminators to build in light of bulking up the force for 40K games. Great to see that more Night Lords are out there!

Thanks for the comment @Dragonet ! You should definitelly add more Night Lords to your collection! Spread fear to all who would oppose you! :vampire3:

Now, here come my Chosen, painted a few months ago (followed by some lore on them):

Lore:

The Chosen of Hellath

"Although most believe that the 7th Company is lead by the Atramentar Lord Cerberus, a darker secret is the truth. Deep beneath the dark planet base of the Company lies a hidden Temple to the Dark Gods. Hellath, the once famed Night Lord swordsman has fallen to Chaos and has been exalted to daemonhood. Though his Atramentar bodyguards rejected him and now follow Cerberus's lead, some marines saw the usefulness of his dark powers. Those few bacame his Chosen soldiers. Imbued with dark powers and mutations, the Chosen of Hellath only emerge from the Temple to spread horror on the enemies of the 7th Company, appearing on the battlefield through dark portals screaming with chaos energy..."

Both belong to the Chosen of Hellath cult in my army which explains the mutations.

See you next time good folk! Comments and critique are welcome as always! :thumbsup:
