My Night Lords warband is slowly growing. I’m glad I’m painting this group up first and foremost for skirmish games, because I don’t know if I’ll ever have enough painted guys to play a proper army-scale game! With skirmish gaming (such as In the Emperor’s Name), I can hop from project to project, completing a handful of guys here and then spending some time on a single figure, like this one.
Here is Durgis Varghast, an Atramentar Terminator attached to this Night Lords warband. Like all my Terminators, he’s one of the old-school metal Citadel models from the mid-1990s, though I used the newer plastic trophy racks to adorn his armor.
Durgis is a bit small compared to the current scale (creep) of 40k figures, so I will be basing all of my Terminators on chunks of cork (to simulate concrete slabs or rubble).
And here’s a bonus — a creepy little mutant/demon creature I kitbashed long ago and recently painted up for use alongside my Night Lords warband. I’m calling this a “flesh engine” and it’s comprised of a Mantic zombie torso with a Pig Iron Kolony Feral head stuck to an old droid chassis from Reviresco (I’ll wait while you look that up).
The end result is a horrifying little monster that will be at home on most sci-fi battlefields and scenarios.
I’m expecting both Durgis Varghast and the flesh engine to get some action on the tabletop this week. Stay tuned!
