    Night lords are all about fast attack. Use lots of bikes, preferably with a plasma gun and flamer thrown in (mine don't leave home without em&#33 Raptors with either meltas or BP and CC kick ass for bringing the fight to the enemy. Night lords have a cool color scheme (my legion's color scheme is derived from theirs), and the best way to paint them is with regal blue(duh), and subtle highlights of enchanted and ultramarines blue, for the effect. for banding burnished gold looks better than shining gold, for a war-torn look.

    Indeed, young initiate. Antioch is right.................to a certain extent. The default Night Lord force customization is to include a healthy mix of fast attack troops in it.

    BUT

    There is another alternative. Unless I am horribly mistaken, Night Lords have a special cover save when in cover. Assuming that I'm correct, take lots of tactical squads and Havocs (no Oblits unless U really need big gunz)...plus furies for cc support. Find cover, and start blasting. The cover save can really help frustrate ap3 weapons.

    Ahhh, finally another Night Lord player.
    Well met Brother TheSlayer!

    About painting:
    I start with a black undercoat.
    Then Regal Blue.
    Then pick out all the armor bands (the border thingys) with shining gold (the darker gold, dont know if its the same where you are :þ)
    The only colors i use in the backpack are Regal Blue and Boltgun metal.
    Then i highlight with Hawk Turqoise.

    About gaming:
    What they've been saying is correct.
    Use your fast attack options to your advantage. Night Lords are allowed to take more Fast Attack than others. And they can also have more Raptors than others.
    Get the hint?
    Bikes and Raptors armed with plasma weapons are my favorite, backed up by a flamer or a meltagun or two.
    Dont be afraid to harass your opponents flanks with your supah fast, advanced cover save units. Then follow up with your rockhard units (Your Lord, Chosen etc.) up the center and take him out.
    I also like to slap some chosen with a Icon and bind some furies in there. This way i can summon up some more Fast attack if my flanks fail or if i need more support.
    Basically experiment with getting the most out of your Fast units while keeping your hard units safe.

    Just a little comment on painting, has anyone ever tried midnight blue and brazen brass? That's what I used to paint my NL (in a distant past), looked pretty sweet.

    Nope your lord wont be able to hit and run.

    And i kinda agree with <-WHiTe~HaWk->. I like Night Lords (you bet your nose i do&#33 but i think the new models are abit silly. I think they should&#39;ve put smaller wings on they&#39;re heads. It looks good on the lord model but a whole army of wingheads?.
    I dont know.
    Maybe it looks good...

    Ok, bad that the lord can&#39;t "hit and run"....
    Rather make sure he has plenty of "no save allowed" attacks, let him join say a squad of 10 raptors...
    Make sure the tarket isn&#39;t just too big, them simply slaughter them...

    Besides the lord has more wounds than a raptor so use him to hold the opponent in close combat while the raptors fall back and prepare for another devestating attack on the unit the lord is occupying...
