Hello everyone,
This is my first p&m blog and I will certainly try to keep it up to date as far as my spare time allows it.

Let me start with brief introduction: I am male in early 30-ies, married and father of one child (until I get better job so I can have at least two more ). I started playing GW games when I was around 10 years old and my introduction games were Talisman and Space Hulk.
After few years I became proud owner of Warhammer Fantasy (the one with plastic gobbos and High elves and card stand ins, not sure which ed is that and dont have enough motivation to open new tab and ask Google).
I played fantasy for a long time but then gaming experience started to change, all of a sudden more and more people stopped having fun with toy soldiers and started using terminology like "RAW", "RAI", math-hammer and stuff like that. Warhammer fantasy became extremely boring for me and I stopped playing it and shelved my Chaos Warriors (In my whole fantasy gaming I played Khorne, and even didnt wanted to take wizards in army- well you know, khorne dislikes magic and stuff like that).
After that came GorkaMorka, all the best words for Mad Max orks and started through it playing 40k. Since I saw in those fantastic tomes page with Night Lords iconography crossbreed with Khornate symbols I decided that they are going to be my army.
In the same time I started studying law so that took most of my time until I graduated (right now I live in a pretty crappy country where someone without political or family connections cant do anything, so I as a graduated lawyer work as a receptionist in a hotel so if someone from Canada or New Zeland here holds an immigration agency feel free to contact me ), and got baby so most of my budget went away from hobby.
Thankfully there are a lot of kind people still in the world which donated me a lot of bits and with some second hand buying and swapping I got hold in a last few years on lot of chaos space marines.
So right now for a price under 60 pounds I managed to get enough bits to convert or represent all of units from our codex (by our I mean CSM), vehicles I mostly do from paperhammer templates.

That wasnt so short introduction but without further delay I will speak of my hopefully growing army.

I view my company of Night Lords as a still coherent force which managed to stay pretty strong after the start of a Long War. In short totally opposite of Exalteds warband from pen of fantastic ADB. To show that my company still holds pretty strong contingent of Dark Mechanicum I will convert or scratchbuild most of new vehicles because I cant stand the look of those dino robots or dragon. Also my obliterators are going to be some kind of Mechanicum constructs.

Here are the pictures of the first two squads.

Claw I







Claw II










I know that most of those pictures arent best but as soon as I found something better to take pictures I will post new ones. Also red in some of them looks strange so they look like there is no highlights and also after those have been taken I finished those models which needed final touch ups.

P.S. I am not a native English speaker so pardon me if I made some grammar or spelling mistakes.

Hello everyone, just a quick update to show some life signs. More on this later.

Aegis defense line (made of cardboard, sprues, and balsa) - This has to be one of the greatest thing in this edition Aegis and quad gun for 100 pts, fantastic stuff. I just dont go to war without one anymore.





Note: I am missing one short section in this pic, it hides somewhere.

Count as Noise marines (mostly kitbashed with some guitar strings and green stuff experimenting)



My cardboard rhino with two t-l bolters and havoc launcher for the first claw. Needs some more working when I get some spare time to work on him. There are some highlights on him but camera washed them out.







And my Kharn kitbash conversion, well who wouldnt want to have in their chaos armies favorite nutty.

@San 76 - Thank you very much. Well if I had some more spare time to invest in paper building that would look much better, but for me my aim is tabletop quality so I am satisfied with how it looks. There are some small things left to do like vents, some trophies etc.

@Moltar - well I dont like over complicating stuff, it really looks nice on the table. As I said earlier my aim is nice standard table top quality. Hope you will like quad gun conversion also. I thin I will be able to finish it in next few days.

Lord Al Ahn smiled, showing his sharpened teeth, Dark Mechanicum allies granted our army with precious Forgefiend warmachine. It radiates destruction and malice from its hull.

If only revered Magos could find a way to attach something else on those land raiders instead of sponson lascannons and hull heavy bolters, but how do loyalist do that manages to stay out of their artifical sight.

Here is my forgefiend Dlak Prsava cardboard-wire-hotglue conversion (maybe scratchbuild would be appropriate term) .
As I said I can stand original figures and wouldnt in a life time give so much money for them so I went and built myself one based on brass scorpion. Its base is still unfinished and I need to wash some cables and highlight them.

New update. Last few days rushed in a second, so I had only time to finish spawns and to start work on some count as noise marines and count as plague marines and Dreadnought (helbrute, seriously GW?).

Hunting beasts (count as spawn)- These beast are residents of Night Lords ships. They live deep in the bowels of the ships in permanent dark, hence the albino skin. Night lords terror claws are hunting these bests which are then released on prey before the main army arrives.
Imposing, mutated, frightening carnivores were idea behind these spawns as I play my Night Lords without visible mutations. Marks are tolerated, because nobody in VIII legion cares about "personal orientation" or interests in divine of other members of claws.





Flayers, condemned, red gauntlets,wearers of sinners red (count as Night Lords with mark of Khorne)- This are my Khorne marked marines. They are equipped with chainblades mounted on the polearm and boltpistols. They are fearsome fighters who usually can be seen in more close quarters combat.
I will repaint them with red colored gauntlets to show that they are already condemned by Warbringer Al`Ahn and will try my best with green stuff to cover their armor with flayed skin.



Plague marines are going to be represented by heavily equipped marines. Skull on the shiields has three eye sockets to represent myrk of Nurgle. I have to put some more guitar wires on them to achieve effect I am looking on them.
Also a lot of things is hard to see because of black primer but I should have some painting in progress in a few days.



Work in progress still-unamed Dreadnought.



Count as Lucius paint in progress, a bit blurry photo but my camera really desnt want to get decent pic of face.

I like your count as Lucius. I like the pose and his backpack. I like your fluff behind your spawn too. Nice update.

@Moltar - Lucius is kitbashed from old school Warriors of Chaos legs and whip hand from charioter, sword is from marauder kit and backpack is standard one with exhaust turned other direction with pipes made from ear-sticks (I believe that is not correct word but you all know what I mean by that), I even sculpted screaming faces with green stuff and his face has thin red lines across it (something like Hellraiser) but whatever I try I cant get decent unblury photo of him.

Kharn the betrayer PIP - only first few of red coats. Please ignore axe color it was used as a test piece for something else. I hope I am going to be able to finish it in next few days.



I really enjoy using this guy in my armies, he is kinda weak with 3+ and 5++ but who can resist enormous fun when he starts hitting .

Here it is rage incarnate, bloody one, chosen of Khorne, blood spiller, champion of the World Eaters and myriad of other nicknames- Kharn the betrayer. I really really like this guy and liked him since I first saw rules for him in editions long long ago. In my humble opinion meanest "mother sleeper" in 40k.
Those are best pics I managed to take, sadly my camera just cant take decent photos but I believe that you will be able to see everything. I tried some OSL because of that Heldrake conversion which fires its flamer. On the left hand he has a World Eater symbol hand drawn but couldnt get decent focus so I didnt uploaded it, also take notice that in pics it looks a bit shinny but in true world he is mat also red color is again strange, seems that I dont know how to take red specter colors -dont know why that happened. Hopefully I would be able to borrow from someone good enough camera to retake pics of all units again.

@Moltar-This is my first try on OSL so I must admit that I am pretty satisfied with it. Probably I will improve it over time.

@Brother of Bone- I tried everything but my really old camera cant get decent shoots, for example last update with Kharn is taken under daylight but as you can see it still destroys a lot of Highlights and shading, freehands etc.

@WangoFett - well currently it seems that they are most popular thing in my blog.

Cszaba Csizmandia- Warp watcher, Dead talker, Cszaba the hated - Cszaba Csizmandia took over the leadership of 55th company of Night Lords through the blood duel after scourging of Tsagualsa. After that he was headed to the Almighty Eye where he met Al Ahn and joined his warband to became second in command. Al Ahn has high regard in Cszabas skills in necromancy and warp sight and values his tactical advices and counsel. Fact that with Cszaba came big portion of 55th also helped a lot, and ofcourse a powerful sorcerer is always a good ally. As a token of rulership he still carries power sword taken from the previous commander of 55th, to serve as reminder how are going to finish all who oppose him.

I run this figure as a count-as Ahriman or "ordinary" sorcerer. He will be painted in regular Night Lords colors and that stuff under his legs is going to be painted probably in greenish hues to simulate tormented souls which now abide his will.











Here are some WIP pics of count as Noise marines with their rhino APC. Fluff for them will come when I finish them.

@Moltar - Glad you like them Moltar. There is still a lot of work on Sonic Youth marines, right now I just blocked main colors and they are ready for polishing and small details.
To be honest, sorcerer right now looks like lot of different pieces glued together (well technically speaking it is) but I hope with some good color I will succeed in finishing him in line with my vision and idea.

Just quick update to, last few days were really busy.
Here is my Night Lords commander or leader, whatever suits you. Pics are not so good as usual bu I believe you can get some idea how is he going to look. Cape is covered in small chains with some heads attached, arms are magnetized (as a matter of fact all my heroes and most of the champs have those tiny little pieces of happiness), piece on his shoulders is somewhere from tank accessories and I also put him some Catap. shoulder guards to get some bulk, after all he is my leader he should be big, strong and intimidating. He stands on some Dark Mechanicum dreg conversion (It was built years and years ago and personally I dont like it very much but for some reason my wife is attached to him so she put "veto" on replacing him. Well you know its not very good to argue with better half .).
As you can see by these photos I start armor color with ultramarines blue and then work it up to the tone I like. Problem is I have only this one dry old school, pot so I have to literally scratch pigment from the bottom to apply it to the mini.
Hope you like this extremely PIP, WIP etc figure and I will try to finish it in next few days.

Thanks for watching...

Hello everybody, short delay in process but here is new update.

Lord Al Ahn, he has face tattoo to recreate skull image (dont know can you see that in my photos) and also on the left shoulder he has small heraldy of my hometown (sometimes I fell very homesick, so this is a really big satisfaction for me when I manage to put some reference that reminds on it). Town is called Karlovac if you want to search it to see how does town heraldy looks.
I know that pic is pretty blurry but just couldnt get better one and wanted to show you some progress.



These are my count as Noise marines with their champion which went plastical surgery to get that bestial look (long time in warp travel doesnt help either, I presume) with their rhino Gos`podan.





And last, update on my count as Ahriman.

Hello brothers of the VIII. and rest of you who dont realize the power of the Night Haunters sons.

A little update to show that I am still alive and that I am working painfully slow but still manage to do some progress.
Pictures coming in a hour or two...
First better pictures of my Lord. He is still PIP but coming along really nice. I still have to do some battle damage on chainfist and paint that servitor under his foot.






Here we have count as Ahriman. Colors of "souls" under him are kinda washed out. In real life (not photographed) they are more, how would you say, vibrant. Still need to finish his cloak and some minor details.





This here is bodyguards of my Lords, Al Ahn (terminator lord) and Csaba (count as Ahriman). They are not Atramentar but lets call them terminator claw. I need to paint lightning on them some freehand on shoulders and details on the base. Kinda went overboard with light radiating from lightning claw but what can I say I got carried away.





These are my count as Plague marines. As I dont like mutations on my army (as I said previously) they count as something like elite, breacher squad. To represent their higher T and lower I I made them collars (to represent heavier armor) and shields for protection. Each one of them also carries a plague knife and also champion uses banner top with Nurgle mark, so it is easier for my opponent to differentiate them from "ordinary" marines. There is also WIP of their still unnamed Rhino APC (always wanted to have one of those older variants-you know legion relic from beginning of Long War).




EDIT: I have just realized that I didnt take any photo of plague marines front so those will be posted in some later update.

I really like the job you've done the your marines. You've got a great mottled blue going on and your lightening looks great.

@Gitsplitta - Thanks, blue is really simple - old dry ultramarine blue from those old school pots (I scrub it from bottom ), then washed by home made wash (black ink+soap+water) and then another small highlight with Vallejo blue (think it is medium blue).
Regarding lightning, I see that lot of people are having hard time drawing it but I dont know why, if you have thin point - brush, relatively steady hand (it is not necessary because of look of lightning) and of course color must be watered down (I see this is often spoken as a advice but somehow people still ignore it).

I think there's more to the lightening than just the technique. You've got to have an eye for it. (meaning design) Some people just have a sense for how it should look and theirs looks great, even with rather primitive techniques. Others (like me), have no clue, so technique doesn't really help us out all that much.

@Gitsplitta - considering your skills I cant agree with your statement from last sentence . But all in all I have to agree with your post regarding some people can do amazing things with rather primitive equipment while some can have most expensive stuff and will never achieve same success (I always remember my neighbor who made drums for himself out of old pots, pillows and God knows what else and manage to play various covers from different bands on "that", while me you can give me the most expensive instrument of any kind and it would be extremely hard for me to produce "hearable" music - but probably would be good noise marine).

There's something to be said for having a good eye for art and design. I'm a decent technician and can paint what's there well. I've never been much for adding new stuff though, not that I haven't tried.
