This is blog about my 40k Night Lords army and other painting/sculpting/fluff that I can think of. I'll be sharing painting and sculpting techniques that I used and maybe we can get a discussion going.

Bring on the Beer and Pretzels!! (Night Lords 1500pts)
So, I got to thinking the other day (trust me, it's not something I do lightly).
In my experience there are two types of gamers... competitive players and beer and pretzel players. Now, I know this is a very grey area as there are some very competitive or tournament players who love and immerse themselves in the fluff and there are also those players that Just want a fun game but could care less about the background.
I tend to be the beer and pretzel gamer myself. I want a fun game with an army that lives up to its fluff. I don't really care if I win or if I get my ass handed to me as long as everyone has fun. I tend to avoid the double lash daemon princes or any other "sure-fire" list modifiers that have worked for others. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with using a double lash DP with six obliterators. It's just not the way I like to play. I'm certainly no perfectionist myself when it comes to my army lists but I do try and stay away from spamming units.
Lately, with my Night Lords, I've come up with two lists to play depending on how "tainted" I'm feeling at the time. Both lists are approximately 1500pts. My friend and I agree on 1500 points because we feel we can get a good sized army without it becoming too much of a Landraider slug fest. We think that this forces us to be a little more creative on how we play. I'm not sure this is how it plays out in the end, but we enjoy it just the same.
