First Founding (30th Millennium)
Chaos Lord Hemek
Dark Blue and Brass
The Nightwing is a warband comprised of Chaos Space Marines of the Night Lords Traitor Legion. Led by their Chaos Lord Hemek, this powerful warlord expressed a strong desire to join with Abaddon the Despoiler and his Forces of Chaos during the 13th Black Crusade. There is little other information on this obscure warband in current Imperial records.
- Hemek - Hemek is a high-ranking and powerful Night Lords Chaos Lord, leading his own warband known as the Nightwing. During a rare meeting of all the lords of the disparate Night Lords' warbands since their end as a cohesive Space Marine Legion with the death of their Primarch Konrad Curze during the Horus Heresy, Hemek expressed a strong desire to join with Abaddon the Despoiler and his 13th Black Crusade in 999.M41.
The Nightwing's colours are the same as their parent Legion, the Night Lords. Their armour is night blue with a mysterious network of lightning bolts that constantly play across their armour when in combat. This is framed with brass.
The Nightwing's badge is the same as their parent legion, the Night Lords, a bleached skull with red coloured Chiropteran wings superimposed over a black Star of Chaos.
