I've decided to collect all the Night Lords upgrades, models and kits that I could find online (Which consists of a surprising amount of Forgeworld Rhino and Land Raider doors), and figured that a list would be very useful for myself and others. You can buy plenty of these as recasts, but I would advise against doing so for the doors because they're a little bit too small to fit into their respective vehicles. That and recasts tend to be of lesser quality, so avoid them if you can and money isn't a problem. Of course I may very well have to accommodate recasts in the end if even Ebay cannot provide!
So without further ado:
You can easily find the above from recasters, but (Like the original, surprisingly) the area above the Rhino window is very thin and brittle. So if you get a set from Ebay with this problem, that doesn't necessarily mean it's a recast. If none of the pieces fit into the Rhino perfectly however, it's definitely a recast. This video should give you an idea of what the kit should look like on a Rhino.
|Night Lords Rhino Doors (Most recent, still out of production though!)|
I've only recently bought one of these from Ebay. The rest of his items looked very legitimate and actually fit into Rhino door spaces, so we'll see if I was right when they arrive!
|Chaos Night Lords Rhino Doors|
I've only seen this on Ebay attached to existing Rhino's, which were entirely basecoated and being sold for 40-ish quid. Not exactly an ideal buy, but it should give you an idea of how rare some sets can be.
|Deimos Pattern Rhino Doors|
Already bought these from Forgeworld, despite not owning a Deimos Pattern Rhino.
|Chaos Night Lord Land Raider doors|
These Chaos kits are probably the oldest Night Lords specific Forgeworld kits there are. They look super cool and you can still find the World Eaters equivalent on Forgeworld here. I really wish I bothered to buy things online back when these bad boys were still kicking about!
|Night Lords Land Raider Legion doors (Most recent version as of April 2019)|
You can still get these on Forgeworld. Mine are of FAR better quality than the recasts I also got. For a 60 quid kit like the Land Raider, I'd honestly use the plastic doors that come with it before I'd use my recast doors. I just don't trust them!
|Night Lords Land Raider Legion doors|
Seems like it's a running theme for Rhino and land Raider door kits to have alternate versions for side doors with the same front armour/door.
|Night Lords "MK2B" Land Raider Legion doors|
According to a Forgeworld 2014 catalogue that I found online, these are the MK2B version of the Land Raider doors found in the image immediately above it. I'm going to assume that it was either a mistake or some kind of "let's sell a set of Rhino doors with the Land Raider front door" scheme to make some extra cash... It doesn't make much sense to me and I'm not actually sure if the Rhino doors even fit the Land Raider! I'm not pushed about this one to be honest, I don't think it even counts as a collectors item if you already have the other two sets.
|Night Lords Transfer Sheet|
I don't have this, but for the sake of collecting, I really just want one. When I eventually have all of the Rhino and Land Raider door sets, I'll get a chance to use these guys. Or I could just get a Fellblade!
|MKII Night Lord shoulderpads|
I've already gotten some MKII Night Lords shoulderpad recasts that I don't reeeeeally want to use on genuine forgeworld resin because a few of the recasts really sucked (lots of obscured detail). it's super cheap stuff though, and as far as balancing cost vs. effectiveness, it's worth it. My problem is that if I'm going to spend hours painting a model, it NEEDS to be the best version of that model to make it worthwhile for me. So I'll probably not use any of my recast resin at all!
|MKIII Night Lord shoulderpads|
Already bought these from Forgeworld. You should still be able to too at this time of writing.
|MKIV Night Lord shoulderpads|
Already bought these from Forgeworld. Not much else to say here! I did get a second set new-in-box on Ebay though.
Already bought this from Forgeworld in the Sevatar Strike Force. And it looks ace.
Already bought these from Forgeworld. One broke after falling from my desk, making me wonder if the brittleness of recast resin is worse than genuine Forgeworld resin or not. I also have recast ones and they're about the same really. Still should be grand for hacking the emperors lapdogs to bits while counting as chainaxes.
|Night Lords Praetor in Terminator Armour|
|Night Lords Praetor with weird-looking jump pack. Yes I was surprised to see this too. It looks like it shouldn't help him with jumping.|
|SEVATARION, FIRST CAPTAIN OF THE NIGHT LORDS AND PROFESSIONAL BADASS GUY WHO TALKS SMACK TO HIS OWN DAD|
|Konrad Curze. It's simple. We become the intergalactic, space-faring batman who strangles people to death with their own intestines.|
|Night Lords Leviathan|
|Night Lords Chaos Dreadnought/Hellbrute|
|Night Lords Hero/Lord|
Believe it or not, I have amassed four of these over the course of several years because I'm absolutely certain that they'll be gone soon. I panic-bought two, along with several other kits during the Vigilus clearout/rollout and was kinda proven right when the Iron Warriors upgrade kit, old Dark Apostle, now-old Chaos Space Marine squad kit and metal Chaos Lord went out of stock. Fans of noticing fine detail may see that the sword is completely out of line with its handle.
|Night Lords Etched Brass|
|Night Lords Terror Squad Torso's|
And I think that's juuuuuuuust about every modern(ish) Night Lords related paraphernalia I could find/remember. I thank god that they aren't as popular as the Death Guard/Nurgle or the World Eater/Khorne. I don't think I have it in me to hunt down a Plaguereaper, Plague Hulk or a bunch of those Khorne fortress walls! Here's a list of OOP Forgeworld stuff if you're interested though. I'm not going to bother with dice or badges or paint, because I just don't really care about them nearly as much as I do about the models. If I've missed anything here, please drop a me a comment and I'll add it to the list!
Ave Dominus Nox!
