“Night falls. The hunt begins.”

– Konrad Curze

Ave Dominus Nox

At the end of light, the shadows grow only larger. The macabre hosts of Konrad Curze are ready to bring the night to the battlefields of the Horus Heresy! The Hidden Dagger expansion for Warhammer Horus Heresy: Legions begins with the release of the new Night Lords collection, featuring fresh new artwork and game mechanics perfect for the murderous VIII Legion.

Get ready to shrink the hearts of your enemies with visceral acts of violence and liberate them of their mortal coils in a fell swoop. Summon the darkness into the hearts of your enemies, and unleash the vilest warriors in the Galaxy against the Imperium’s lackeys.

The Night Lords’ dark legend

The Night Lords unveiled their dark intentions on Isstvan V, as part of Horus’ master plan to eradicate three loyalist Legions from the war entirely. The Iron Hands, Salamanders and the Raven Guard were counting on a Second Wave of reinforcements, including the Night Lords, to stop Horus’ betrayal before it spread too far. Little did they know, the Warmaster’s tendrils had spread further than imaginable, securing the loyalty of the Legions that were coming as reinforcements.

Numberless are the atrocities performed by the VIII Legion through the years of the Horus Heresy. From capturing and torturing Vulkan, to bringing endless terrors to the Thramas sector. Theirs is a dark and brutal legend that grows only darker with each of their acts. Konrad Curze and his hosts have made their intentions clear, and eternally forsaken the path of redemption.

Night Lords Warlords

Many Night Lords warriors engulfed the Galaxy in terror, but among them, three of their mightiest heroes were chosen to lead the Legion into battle:

  • Kheron Ophion: Possessing a sense of honour rare among his Legion, his shield is a constant reminder of his greatest failure.
  • Sevatar: Arrogant, ruthless and utterly infamous, Sevatar is a living avatar of the VIII Legion’s dark purpose.
  • Konrad Curze: The feared Primarch of the Night Lords, who brought judgment rather than deliverance to the worlds he claimed.

Eviscerate enemy lines with brutal acts of violence

The Night Lords do not perform clean kills. Their sadistic souls seek to punish their prey with physical and psychological methods before making an example out of any poor soul that stands in their way. Their new Murder trait befits these blood-soaked killers, triggering an effect after defeating an enemy if the damage they dealt in the killing blow is superior to the poor victim’s remaining health.

Unlike Battle Honour, Murder will still trigger even if the troop with Murder dies while attacking. Murder is also not troop-exclusive and can be found on Tactics. Plan your attacks carefully and exploit their new mechanic to get as much value as possible out of your troops!
