Wanted to run this idea past you guys..

I will be doing a BA army for sure. However, I could do it while still having my Chaos Marines on the table..as Night Lords. Fluff wise, Night Lords are all about Raptors and care little for Daemonic influences.

So then, would this bother you to see a Chaos Marine army lined up as Blood Angels?

..worst case, I just get better at painting red Wink

That kinda sounds like the idea I was toying with for my blood angels well ok a little more extreme (mine was add choas mutations and bits and such to current space marine models) I dont see any problem with it though I think you would need to do some changeing around of the models so it doesnt look like a normal chaos marine army for it to work in torunament settings.

It would be a straight up Night Lords force painted to scheme, not my Black Legion with Jump Packs.

Actually many times armies represent differernt codexis. As long as everything is clear and no confusing to your opponent you should be fine ( That part shouldnt be hard)

Ever heard of traitor guard? If you can have mutated guard and demonic icon in a guard army , I don't see why you can't do this.

In fact these armies probably earn good points at RTT.

I agree with Sean, friendly games really there are no problems.

The trend now is for people to play in essence a proxy army. The past it has been: Dark Angles = Space Marines, then Vanilla = Space Wolves, now Vanilla = Blood Angles. No matter the color, look or feel of the original army matters as long as they are WYSIWYG. Now a days its all about the bigger and better Codex, and no matter what marine army you play they are typically all the same cookie cutter lists that people dig off a website.

Again, in a friendly setting, really who cares, and even in a casually Tournament setting not sure that it would matter. Hll <-(who turned on the kiddie filter) most people, myself included, barely have their models painted at all or they are just primed so I am not sure color and iconography matter.

The one way I think you could pull this off would be that if Pre-Heresy the combat tactics and style of the army fit the newer Codex you are trying to play. Just because the Night Lords fly around and are primarily assault doesn't mean they are anywhere close to Blood Angles. You would have to look at the "Black Rage" for example. You could explain it away as a Chaos thing but Night Lords are pretty cool and calculated in their hit and run tactics, not like BA's who are down your throat more like Khorne style armies.

This is just my opinion, hll <-(again) Marc if we could get you out to actually play you could use Green Army Men for what ever Codex you want.

This type of thing is pretty common in a tournament setting. It's like archite says, just have to make sure it is 100% crystal clear what counts as what. It also has to be within reason.

Thanks for the input guys..

Pretty sure I'll just stick with red guys having put more thought into it..

..although doing a Pre-Heresy army has been a project I've kicked around for the past two years.
Missing out on ordering some FW Red Scorpions with you guys seems to be a sign for maybe not Laughing
