Hi all!
i have recently been inspired to do a pre heresy army by none other than Noserenda (the guy with the wicked alpha leigionarres:cool:) and as such i decided to do a alpha legion army but soon after i read about konrad kurze's batman-like vigilantism(apart from actually ripping apart the bad guys and ruling the entire world!)and listened to the dark king. This in turn made me want to do a Night lords army aswell, so while pondering the idea of an army in either pre heresy night lords armour or pre heresy alpha legion armour i came across a blog from the ledgendary doghouse and that clinched it for me.(i am CERTAINLY not saying that my army will be anywhere near as good as his abandoned force!!:eek:)

so of i went with a pocket full of christmas money and i bought-....well you'll just have to see won't you?

Lemme know what you think guys and pictures will be posted after a day of sheer painting(ie around 6 O'clock tomorrow night!!)
just to let you know, updates will be posted every weekend.(don't you just hate Real life and Work!:))

Yours sincerly Deadpool

This sounds like a great idea with a lot of potential. I must admit though that my knowledge of the Pre-Heresy NLs is very limited...but I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

interesting idea to bad your font colour is likely to deter me from reading it. Dark blue on the standar black is very hard to see.

Cool! I was very tempted by Night Lords Originally, but went with Alphas for being sneakier :D Looking forward to updates!

Its always nice to be described as having wicked models too! :D Thanks again!

cool the light blue works much better, achieves nightlord effect and colours while still legible. Good start, Im not up on my fluff for them completely but they are on a planet that never sees light of day? I would imagine them as being white or extremely pale flesh tones.

Th captains sholder pads were normal blank space marine(i used a chaos one for his right shoulder as i thoght it looked cool)glue them almost awkwardly on top so that the bottom of the shoulder pad is facing outwards, and then getthe fantasy orc warboss curved shoulder pad and glue it on top.(had two from orc army :D)
have started work on Batman hiself and when i get mys grubby dark-blue-paint covered hands on my camera monkey(Noserenda knows what i'm talking about.thos damn monkeys....always running of and stealing the last bit of piz-....):oanyway as i was sayig...wen i find my monkey(probably tomorrow night!) i shall post WIP pics...

Till Then,i bid you adieu

thanks coalescence! my camera broke so have taken funds from my night lords to buy another on thursday batman isgoing well and i have also decided to make a squad of the emperors guard, and am also sculpting a very special charachterwho shall be used as grey nights and a inqiusitor respectively (plus now my army shall be led by an even more special character along with batman.)

just a tip: pre-heresy the only chapter wearing the aquila was the emperors children and if you got the patience you could try studding the shoulder pads for a pre-heresy feel.

saw another pre-heresy builder using fantasy chaos warrior helmet which looked really awesome

hence my re-doing of squad Kai;)
i do plan on ,as i have custodes and special imperial charcters in my army, giving the chapter master i am working on an aquila, and the venerable dread an aqulia (remember in the third edition of the space marines collectors guide where a guy had a pre heresy ultra marines army and EVERY squad commander and capain had a aquila,)


saw another pre-heresy builder using fantasy chaos warrior helmet which looked really awesome
i've seen that too, but fluff wise,only the thousand sones had helmets like that.

BTW i know i might be slightly offputting to have a blog with barely any picture done by a guy who's name is not very well known, i promise all of you,by saturday, there will be an abundance of pictures!
heers and any comments are welcome!

Great work there Deadpool, I have one complaint.... everytime I see your avatar in these forums I think its me and I get confused lol. As a little tip for you, I am doing Pre-Heresy Ultramarines currently and I have found that for making studs on the armour.
Using something with a fine point but not too fine, such as a large needle, if you take this and dip the end into PVA glue.Then using the pin, dab onto the area you want the studs (such as the shoulder guards), it comes out looking like the studs. And of course you can always layer it aswell.

To be honest I did think about Pre Heresy Night Lords but im crap at lightning effects and if I was to do a Night Lords army it would have to include lightning on the armour so.....
Also as another tip, has anybody suggested the Forge World Red Scorpians?? They use Mk. 5 armour I believe. I ordered some myself (still yet to arrive), but ive seen them used for Pre-Heresy purpose and they seem to work. Just another pointer for you.
Also how is the remake of our Primarch coming allong, sad to hear it got a test flight. Also have you got any plans to make the Tallonmaster?
Awaiting more from you!

Night Lords had lightning before the Heresy as well. It was just paint at that time and not actual lightning as it is on post heresy Night Lords.

Lightning effects are quite simple by the way....just paint enchanted blue or a similar color on the armour first and then paint a thin line of white on top of it without covering the blue completely. This will create a "glowing" effect. at least thats how I do it on my Post Heresy Night Lords. Just remember not to over do it or it will detract from the model as a whole(make it to "busy" so to speak).

BTW the reason for the dante sculpt is because i love devil may cry and i plan on making a nostramo militia with him at its head
(using the catachan models as escaped prisoners and phsycopaths. and it will be a legitimate swarm guard force.{like i'll ever use it as a seperate army:D})
plus the militia have their own official theme song.
imagine the gears of war trailer as a background,but with a gang of catachans(but pale and with navy/black clothes.) and this song.

hi evryone!
jus a quickie, bought a box of catachans and would have bought the battleforce but then the new ones coming out with more prettys so i stayed myself and settled with a 20 man box. they arent primed yet but i surely will in due course.
i had to sell my pre heresy terminator captain for a handsome 30 (to much of a good offer!)so shock horror now i am down to 1 HQ!! (plus primarch.)
upon this horrifiying realisation i've decided to make a libraian thx to the Tempus fugitives caracter update. :D

anyone have a idea for a pose?
best pose will be scuplted!!

ASURMANDOS:
a terran born, ibrarian asurmandos was a veteran of the unification wars and as such wears armour addorned with eagle honors.Like his primarch asurmandos suffered from foresight but upon meeting his primarch on the night world of nostramo,a new power manifested in asurmandos.Asurmandos could now sense the fears of those around him and through his phsycic powers,create a halucagenic effect that only those targetted by his power could see.These halucinations incorporated the fears sesnsed and often drove those victims to the point of insanity.
