The Night Lords were one of my original armies from back in 3rd edition. I am not even sure what attracted me to them in the first place, but they will always bring back good memories. So tonights Pics of the Week is dedicated to the Night Lords.

Pics of the Week happen every Tuesday where I share from my Warhammer pic library. I collect these all the time from all over, and sharing them is just fun.




Night Lords via 40k wiki
The Night Lords were originally the VIII Legion of Space Marines created during the First Founding and became one of the 9 Traitor Legions of Chaos Space Marines that betrayed the Emperor of Mankind during the Horus Heresy of the 31st Millennium. They do not worship any of the four Chaos Gods individually, but acknowledge them equally in the form of Chaos Undivided as they ruthlessly spread terror and fear amongst the galaxy's inhabitants. The Night Lords are experts in the use of terror tactics to win battles and demoralise their foes before the main combat even begins.

  1. I never much cared for them until recently, tbough I have played Chaos since the Rogue Trader days. It has been the fleshing out, the advent of the lore, thathas made me come to see them as so much more than I had thought.

    Such a shame that the CSM codex didn't dedicate a page or three to some minor special rules, unique to the chapters we have come to love over the years.

    1. Most chaos never broke down into chapters, and they did. Read the unit descriptions, like how khorn berserkers are primarily world eaters.

      Besides there isn't much left of the old traitor legions beyond warbands fighting over the scraps of what they once had.

    2. Uh...don't khorne bezerkers have universal special rules that make them unique from other forms of marines. You mean to tell me you want them to have more! Pretty sure the Thousand Sons, Death Guard and Emperor's Children have some unique traits as well. The Legions that get screwed are the Undivided, but we could say The Black Legions special rules are freaking 13pts a piece marines! Just roll on your chaos gifts table and stfu! ;)

    3. People act like a 13pt is a steal for chaos marines. Sorry but those marines -who are ok with living subject to horrors of chaos- run off the board terrified if someone shouts 'boo'. Give them the extra ccw they used to have and the icon of vengeance they desperately need to overcome Ld 8 and your looking at about 18 pts per for your basic scoring unit. Same as the chaos lord. People see 65 pts and think 'holy frijoles, what a deal!' without realizing that you need to give him several upgrades if you want him to do anything at all.
      I'm not complaining about the price of these things, just saying people need to realize that the new csm codex base costs are often misleading as kelly has made every tiny little thing from ap4 weapons to 5+ invulns something you must purchase

    4. Stick a dark apostle in with those 13pt marines and stop crying. You don't see space wolves crying over their ld 8. The ap4 is a huge waste of pts too.

      Trying to be funny through text aside. 130pts for 10 marines with bolters in power armor is awesome. Take them for what they are.

    5. Dark apostle? why wouldn't I buy an IoV for 25 pts since fearless is about the only thing the apostle can do well. They get crushed in cc and thanks to challenge rules its hard to avoid. Space wolves have ATSKNF ofcourse they don't care about Ld8, I don't understand your point. Glad we agree on ap4 weapons, do you realize thats what the dark apostle has? Don't get me wrong I'm not crying about my troops here, I'm crying about people assuming since the base cost is 13 thats the way to take them. That 130 pts of marines isn't going to do a darn thing the entire game except sit on an objective, if they don't run away in cowardice. Your much better off giving them upgrades so they can actually try to contribute

    6. So I guess your opinion of the basic troops for SoB would be even worse, 125 pts for 10 (WS3, S3 T3, I3, A1 no extra ccw) and no options for any fancy upgrades just basic special and heavy weapons.

      Delete
    7. I've never played with or against SoB; they just don't seem popular in my area. If its true that this is all their troops are, then I'd have to agree that they're in the same boat or worse. However, if I'm not mistaken, don't they have some army-defining special rules? I honestly don't even know what they are so have no clue if they are worth anything.

    8. Can reroll 1s to hit on the basic troop if you use a faith point and roll usually 4+. They also have a 6++ invulnerable save pretty much army-wide (which has some effect on vehicles but very little on infantry).

      Pretty uninspiring extras, but I suppose it is something.

  4. Night Lords were my first army in 3.5, and it was because I loved the Raptor models & NLs could take up to 4 units of them instead of the 0-1 that everyone else could take. Then I read the fluff on Kurze, and knew I'd made the right decision. :-D. The recent BL books have just been some very tasty icing on an already delicious cake!...

  5. The bot adverts are like a good joke, the punchline is a 180° turn. Still, somehow I feel we have been invaded.

  6. As I'm sure Natfka knows, there's no Askimet support for Blogger just yet, hence all these spam comments getting through, one can only hope it happens sooner rather than later.

  12. Read the ADB Nightlords Trilogy. If you think you loved them before... LOL. They always appealed to me in that they were traitors but never fell to chaos.
