Games Workshop World Championships Preview: Night Lords bring terror to Kill Team

More Heretic Astartes are coming to Kill Team. Games Workshop has revealed a new Night Lords warband to field. Known as Nemesis Claws, these kill teams are brutal, unhinged murderers who commit the darkest atrocities. They’re dedicated to the art of terror and ambush.

Their faction ability In Midnight Clad obscures them from enemy fire while lurking around terrain.

They like close combat sporting lightning claws, Nostraman chainglaives, and lethal poisoned blades. Even those who opt for ranged weapons like plasma guns and missile launchers find ways to festoon them in hooks, blades, and barbs.

The kit uses the Chaos Space Marines as a base and comes with an extra-large upgrade sprue full of macabre tchotchkes, from draped skins and trophies to winged helmets and flensing blades. There’s also new wargear for building unique Nemesis Claws operatives – like the Ventrilokar icon bearer, who carries a sorcerous totem built from the ruined corpse of a murdered Space Marine.

What’s even better, with the way Warhammer 40K 10th edition is, you can pick this up and add it to your Chaos Space Marine force!

The Night Lords’ Konrad Curze represented the WWE Royal Rumble

This weekend, the 36th annual Royal Rumble was held by the WWE. One of the major draws for it is a match where numerous wrestlers enter the ring in random order and the last one to remain in the ring wins. Warhammer 40K fan Shayna Baszler entered fifth in this year’s match and sported gear inspired by the game’s Night Lords forces.

Baszler entered fifth and was eliminated sixth by the combined force of Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky lasting 13 minutes and 28 seconds.

So what do you think of Baszler’s gear? Does it do the Night Haunter justice?

Contekar Terminators and Phyrr Cats are up for Pre-Order on Forge World Now

Forge World has two new pre-orders up now on the site. You can add to your Horus Heresy Night Lord forces as well as expand your Escher gangs. See what you can get now!

Elite shock troops adept at sowing panic and dismay with their arrival, the Contekar Elites’ talents for steadfast prosecution of war was much vaunted amongst the Legions during the Great Crusade. Contekar Terminators are butchers and murderers of a high order, to be called upon when the VIII Legion wished to bring more than terror but utter and abject despair and destruction upon a foe, to bur their armies, infrastructure and agriculture, and to topple the foundations of their civilization.

You can order them now for $98.

Escher gangers are attracted to the big cats of Phyrr in particular for their exotic looks and killer instincts. Such beasts are rare in the extreme, and smuggling them planetside to Hive Primus is no mean feat, so they are an incredibly rare sight as pets even amongst the hierarchy of House Escher. Yet seen they are, and when the opportunity to acquire such a beast, or even better, a mating pair, arises, Escher gang queens will go to any lengths to secure them.

You can get two Phyrr cats for $33.
