It took me the whole damn summer, but I finally finished painting up a minimum-sized unit of Chaos Space Marine Terminators for my Night Lords warband, the Reavers of Deculon Prime. What can I say, I’ve been prepping for a big Frostgrave game and otherwise preoccupied by other projects!
I showed off Durgis Varghast a few months back, but now he’s been joined by two more brutal heretics. These are all the old metal Chaos Terminators (with plastic trophy racks because I couldn’t get my hands on any metal ones) mounted on chunks of cork.
Anyway, here is Mors the Halcyon, who can recall hefting his ancient autocannon and firing upon the defenders of the Imperial Palace during the Siege of Terra. Now, after centuries of implacable bitterness, he still serves the vaunted Atramentar brotherhood (consisting of veteran Night Lords equipped with the highly revered suits of Terminator armor) and wishes only to see his former Legion returned to its former martial glory. He seeks new and unexplored worlds from which the Legion might draw new warriors.
At his side is Klaudach Xar, a veteran scarred by centuries of raids, skirmishes and clashes on the fringe of Imperial space. After so many years spent far from the front lines of war, Klaudach yearns to take the fight to the Imperium once again. He has joined up with the Reavers of Deculon Prime in hopes that they will put his skills to use against the defenders of mankind.
Here’s one more pic of the whole group.
I always like coming up with name and little backstories for my guys — particularly for figures like these, which took me a long damn time to complete and are intended as sort of display pieces for my nascent Night Lords army. Let me know if you like where I’m going with this fluff!
