The 19th Company, Night Lords Chapter

When Games Workshop originally created the Night Lords as a traitor chapter the fluff linked them to the chaos god of war. As I bought into this concept all of my chaos space marines have carried the mark of khorne either overtly or as insignia.

As the universe and the narrative around it have been expanded, the chapter has been decoupled from a specific chaotic force – they’re now pitched as renegades without daemonic allegiance. Fortunately the narrative leaves plenty of scope for individualism, so…

The 19th Company of the Night Lords, known as the Skull Reapers maintain their following of the Blood God. They fight along side other Khorne followers such as the World Eaters and the hellish forms that emanate from the Khornate realm.

Chaos Nutters Part 1

Turns out that these days in 40k you need some surprisingly dangerous in large number type units to distract your enemies and to camp out on those objective markers.

Chaos cultists, renegades or whatever you want to call them seem to be the go to unit so I thought I’d raid the old miniatures box and see what I could dig out and found these…

Yes that’d be three metal figures (L to R) namely a Guardman, a Scavvy and a Bratt. Horrendously painted (in possibly enamel) with what appears to have been a decorators paint brush by a person with no talent. When you get a box of random figures it can be lucky dip. Time for a bath in paint stripper…

Stripped back to bare metal and in need of a bit of final scalpel work to get the last remnants of paint off ’em. Then onto a bit of conversion work and raiding the bits boxes to make these:

Time for paint and to get some better photos…
