Night Lords Standard Bearer?

An interesting idea for a Night Lords icon bearer that had been cooking in the back of my mind for a little while.

Here, I've combined parts from standard chaos space marines (arms, shoulder pads, bolter, bolt pistol and back pack) with a Dark Angles veteran (head, torso and legs) and a banner from Grave Guard (vampire counts range in fantasy battle) that I originally got hold of to create some unique lesser daemons with.

Originally, I had thought to create a unique squad of necromantic chaos space marines, for which this guy would be a natural icon bearer. They'd be "summoning" the grave guard as lesser daemons (raising the dead!). But as I looked at the miniature, it dawned on me that he was looking more and more like a Night Lords veteran. I'm considering painting him up in Night Lords colours and see how he looks. A small squad of Night Lords would be a neat addition to my usual Death Guard troops. So, does this conversion speak "Night Lords" to anyone else?

Looks sweet. I'd definitely steer away from the bat wing helmet if I were going to do Night Lords.

Looks good. Night-Lords flying in to apply some necrotic raising of the dead - nice. I really applaud you idea of using zombies as lesser deamons - it simply makes sooo much sense for Deathguard... especially when plaguebearers are so pricey and you only get 'vanilla' deamons in C:CSM.

I love the idea of raising skeletons as lesser daemons. That model does have a Night Lords vibe to it - the wings on the skull do it for me.

Nice modelling man!
Love that "raise the dead!" thing.
If that isnt a night lord marine, what else would it be?
