A warm and bloody welcome back to Carpe Noctem! If you're reading this you might be wondering what's changed and what's going on at Carpe Noctem.

The simple version is that with the launch of Age of Sigmar CN slowly started getting quieter, many members including myself going dormant. But, like all good vampires, we're resurrecting ourselves! Partly that is due to the launch of Soulblight Vampires, and you can view some of their amazing models in the second post of this thread!

To live in the new times, we've made some changes to the forum layout, reduced the sections and hopefully made it easier to know where to post. We're a forum for all things Death in Age of Sigmar (Soulblight Gravelords (the new vampires), Nighthaunt (the ghosties), Flesh-eater Courts (Ghouls) and Ossiarch Bonerepeapers (Skellie Super Soldiers). We also still continue to support Vampire Counts in WHFB for all editions, including The 9th Age.

For the moment we've got some amazing articles to share, and we want to see your models, your painting logs, your stories and your questions! Now, to start you off with:

  • Want a quick overview of what happened between WHFB to AoS, including the armies? Look here
  • Want a more in-depth breakdown of what happened in the Age of Sigmar? Look here
  • Reviews on each of the Death armies in Age of Sigmar - Coming Soon!
  • The fully updated WHFB timeline, including the movements and fate of each of the Master Vampires - Coming Soon!
We're also going to be highlighting articles every week, so keep checking on for new painting guides, stories, artwork, and more!

So glad to be back, it's been a while!

Work is hyper-busy for me until mid July, but from then expect me to be posting full-steam about a particular Vampire painting project of mine.
What's that you ask? Why, it shall be surrealist-art-inspired Soulblight Gravelords of course!

Hey @Aren! Brilliant to have you back in the Cryp 😁

That army concept sounds amazing! 🤯 I can't wait to see your painting log 👍 hope work isn't too mental until then!

It kinda means Seize the Night (instead of Carpe Diem - seize the day) - suitable for our vampiric home on the web!

Thank you for all the work that you are putting into this revival DoN :). All these new topics to guide members around the forum are very helpful.

Thanks very much, although I can't take credit for it. Before my time there was another, older vampire, simply known as Master Vampire! Unfortunately he disappeared over a decade ago now.

I'm glad this site found the Carstein Ring!
We always had it, we just had to use it 🙈

Yup, you know what it's like when you've got loads of jewellery! Forgot we even had the ring until I found it underneath my socks 🤣

it is said that "within strange aeons even death may die".
That could be true, but we are beyond death.
Nagash is certainly not having any of that "death my die" malarky and neither are we!

Got the email notifications and finally some time to log in again. I'm still not into AoS, but also still painting undead and (occasionally) playing other games. Some of those new vamps look great!

Welcome back! Fresh reinforcements from ancient tombs are always welcome.
You'll see that many things are going on, Carpe Noctem is flooding with unholy vitality.

quick survey.

in gaming forums, among the most common things people look for (especially newcomers that are entering the hobby), are suggestions on tactics, lists optimization, guides about the best options and so on.

Here on CN, in our tactical subforum, we have a dedicated thread on VC tactics for WHFB
I'm slowly completing the great tactical thread for Tomb Kings (again, WHFB)
AoS is still uncovered...
I'm doing a general overview for Nighthaunts, there's still much work to do but i believe it will be a good point of reference.

Is there someone that could take care of the other AoS undead factions (or at least help me in the task)?
Soulblight, FEC, Ossiarch... IMO it would be really nice and useful to have a complete collection of "tactical guides" for every undead army.

Yes I have been thinking the same and I would love to make a handbook for Soulblight.
