So you're responsible for this. Nice work here, very nice. I've always wondered who made this. I thought Games Workshop did it themselves.

Awesome thanks man, I do have one OFFICIAL piece with this pic....

but other than that I'm still trying to get my foot in the door, it doesn't help that they have caliber like Karl Kopinski and Adrian Smith (there are others that I could  point you to if you're interested)  that consistently blow my pics out of the water, I don't mind though those guys are what I reach to .

I see. The Night Lords series has inspired me to create my own NL warband that's the A-Team, Ghostbusters, and the Mafia wrapped up in the form of Night Lords.

"I wanted to be a hero".
Well done, the fact that I can tell them all apart at a glance is awesome, you nailed the major details, Xarl's chainsword, Uzas's chainaxe and skin cloak, and obviously Aurum in Talos's grip, among other small but important details. I recently finished the omnibus and the characters you illustrated so well are among my favorite(if most deplorable) characters in 40k and you most assuredly did them justice. Well done.

Super close its -- Variel, Xarl, Uzas, Talos, Cyrion and Mercutian.

Cyrion carries a bolter and has the mechanical arm. The one on the far left is Variel the Flayer. You can tell by the flayed skin on his armor and his apothecary gear. Otherwise, you're correct.
