I was wondering what u guys thought about the night lords because im trying to decide between them and EC...thank you
Well, consider their strengths:
Night Vision: Could be good, depending on how you play.
Raptors: I love em. You can have so many now...it's almost sick. Infiltrate them wiht all them Plasma Pistols.
I would base this decision on Fluff. Would you rather see Night Lords swoop down quickly upon the helpless ranks of the enemy, or would you like to see the Emperors Children unleash all that sonic energy and tear the enemy apart?
Night Lords could be a painting wonderland, as well. I'd go with them.

Slaaneshi is much more easy to paint and much more stronger in CC, due to their warp Scream ability.
Hard to say. I like my NL army, but my friend`s EC is a good army too. Just decide from fluff position and from you feelings, to whom your soul belongs - to She Who Must Not Be NAmed or Great Chaos Undivided! =)
As expressed by twohats and wulfenstain it all comes down to fluff (usually) but if your like me it's strengths/weaknesses so consider these
Night Lords:stealth adept,more raptors(Good) + possible more fast attack
mark of undivided only,no ded. to gods (vehicles) + no daemons (bad)
E. Children:Warp scream(GOOD!),slaanesh armoury + favored units
mark of slaanesh is a must,No khorne,they're pink(TERRIBLE):w00t:
So consider both. i personally prefer E. children but if you play them try to make them only pink enough to make them E. children

Thanks for the help guys based on fluff(i dont know that much about Ec because i dont have the right index asartes books)im thinking about night lords but i still have a list typed up for EC.thanks for the help.
Don't disregard Furies either, in your Night Lords. Yeah, Raptors are cool, but they're expensive, and 4 squads of 10 Furies each can give any opponent a headache (except maybe Tyranids). Plus, with inflitrating chosen with daemon icons (basically a generic daemon bomb), you can drop the furies on them right away and throw your opponent's ranks into, well, chaos.
Here's an idea... pre-heresy night lords. you can use the space marine(shutter....so not right)assault squads and still use your chaos list. don't get me wrong, i love raptors, but i'm a huge fan of plastics. plus you can mix in some of the night lords bits to make the stand out.
40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)
That sounds very sexy actually, plus the modeling capabilities are limitless .
What are you thinking about using for a Lord in these Night Lords?
