Khorne ekkweht ghhrrerk shketh! Urlock Gaur rehketig oskrekkh!
++ Loading translation matrix++
++ Translation complete: Khornes Bloodsoaked fist! Urlock Gaurs Iron Will! ++



Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the blood pact log of my humble self. So allow me to explain what is to occur here, over the past few months i have been steadily rebuilding my love for the hobby, as well as parts of my life. around six months ago i came to a head with a depression that had, unknowingly to me, been crushing me for over a year. Suprisingly what pulled me through was just one moment, just one model. The grot tank. It inspired me to build over 3k+ worth of works, and paint around 1-1.5ks worth in just 5 months. However, there comes a point when you hit a limit with an army and even my love of greenskins can't overide the fact that they've become, since 5th edition, one of the lesser races. It also didn't help i'm become a complete tread head. So, i asked myself, whats the solution?

I used to be an iron warrior fan of epic proportions (at one point i had a serious volume of armoured might, including two baneblades back in the days when the plastic kit was only a few months old) but since 2007 i haven't been able to use them with codex; not quite chaos marines. It would be a.... an act of heresy against the dark gods to do so. But there is something else that niggled at me. Chaos. Chaos has always been one of my major draws to the hobby, in fact probably the largest, and in 2007 i made an armoured fist company and a few test models for the Blood pact. This was the result:



At the time i was happy with them, but i got sucked in to orks when the codex came out and i was forever chosen by gork and mork to be a vessel of their will.


But khorne cannot be so easily dismissed, and since i am no longer grapling with my depression on a daily basis, but instead finding ways to beat its causes, i now find the voice of chaos whispers to me. So it was i commited myself to my next major project. How major you ask? Very. Insanely big, to the point where i'm not sure i can justify the expenditure, but at the same time i need to do it. So What is it?

Well, the title sort of gives that away. I want to build a major blood pact armoured division, with a host of lemans, chimera, artillery pieces and super heavies. I want to bring the full might of Gaur to the field, and i want to fulfill my urge to own an armoured company. So next week, as a christmas present to myself, i am buying the models to complete the following 750 list;


+HQ+ 125
Headquarters Unit
Grenade Launcher x4

++ Troops ++ 240
Veteran Squad #1
Grenade Launcher x3
Chimera

Veteran Squad #2
meltagun x3

++ fast attack ++130
Vendetta

++ heavy support ++ 255
Leman Russ, heavy bolters, heavy stubber
Hydra

Total 750


it's got a lot of blast template potential, enough armour to worry people and enough anti-tank/monstro creature to put down anything too hard.i know the stubber is an unusual choice on the leman, but when i worked the points out i had 10 going spare so i thought to myself... get a stubber, and the leman is the only tank in that list that's going the ability to use it with an increased chance of reaping its points cost back.

I've managed to find a mini i could paid without any draw backs to future progress, one of the rogue psyker units i got off a friend. I've decided to make him a Gore Mage (played as part of the battle pysker unit). This is how he looks;






Allow me to explain my scheme; standard pact, red cloth, dark iron/black armour, however in this case i've gone with a lot of blood. a hell of a lot of blood. The reason is; gore mages use blood to envoke daemons and do dark rituals, so whilst not strictly a psyker they tap into the warp. The result of this, in the case i'm using is that rivers of blood flow from them whenever they begin a blood ritual, and since blood in the realm of khorne is usually boiling, you can see why it's melted the snow theme i'm running with. The skin has turned blue from lack of blood/oxegen (which wouldn't be fatal unless he got perils of warp and was exsanguinated)

C&C welcomed on him, i'm quite happy with the rivers of blood thing, since this is a khorne army it kind of makes sense...

thanks for the kind words guys!


Update time guys, this is something i've cobbled together out of a few bits. I've decided to redesign the heavy weapons teams in my armies, giving them more mobile fact responce feel as well as avoiding the boring tri-stands the corpse worshipers use. I'm also testing out the basing technique i plan to use

Now for the update, in 8 days i have an apoc game, and foolishly i decided to roll guardsmen. since i ownly own 2 lemans russes that haven't been... remodelled my Gitzkrieg i need to make more. PAPER TIMEZ ahead. i need to make 7 standard pattern russ, and one more of these bad boys;





Thats right, i'm rolling a 3 man tank sniper squad. Apoc is the perfect scale for these guys to work at, since i've never been able to justify them in normal games. I've remodelled an old russ i got from ebay in that squad, since it had No spons and needed a new turret i've rebuilt it. it needs some work before its complete (any some heavy bolters) but so far i'm happy with the framework for it.

This update is well overdue, it contains some of the work that will be popping up. Now before i start there are several errors i will correct; the rivets are mishappen because i've only just glued them on (and i wont have time to file them to size before i can return to the tank in a weeks time), and one of them is missing. However, those asides, i think its a good way of showing how i'll be taking the tanks down unique and varied pathways as i attempt to create several generations of tanks in the same force.

How did you do the wheels on the Heavy Weapon Team?

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Llamahead wrote:How did you do the wheels on the Heavy Weapon Team?


hey llam, i used two different sizes of tubing i got at a DIY store, then ran a rig through the middle of two plasti-rods. once they set, i cut the front legs of a normal set, and stuck the pin/back leg onto the plasti-rod axle. then LGS'd the feth out of it.

Ok, update.






C&C welcome, i'm happy to explain the process or design choices to anyone who's curious.

soon as i can find some replacements for the broken drill bits i have, yeah. having a hard time atm, i can't get out to nearest large scale DIY store since i don't drive and my local town stores are having a hard time stocking things (wierd thing to be short of) due to the weather and a busted cargo boat.... admittidly, good excuse since shops here are running out of food.

Update time, sorry for the bad photos, its hard to get good lighting in the evening. the grotesques do look better in the real world, but the close ups that'd show the detail are causing my camera to have a fit. This is my command squad for the small scale army, and its WIP chimera. I've also made a Eviscerator priest, though he's a dark mechanicus reject.

There just awesome! I like that dark mech priest. Very orginal and creative!

The CCS is really well done and the Blood pact feel is there in full force. I like how you make the Company command with the spikes and the helmets have been filed down to give them a proper look instead of just plain cadian heads.

I'd love to play against this army using my Tanith and Allies from the Sabbat world Crusade (Phantine Skyborne and Padrus specfically)

Keep up the great work!

@swamp; oddly enough i've got a match against tanith in jan. i'm trying to get a 750 finished in time for a skirmish match.

Update time; i forget to take pics of the vendetta i'm working on, so here is a fixed two hander priest, my new priest WIP with a two- hand...er weapon, and lasgun servoskull, a modifed lord commissar who's a lot better looking IRL and the first of the melta veterans.

and this is a chimera i'm working on with magnetised weapons, the autocannons more of wish from the IA1 chimera, used a heavy bolter, and the multi-laser for WYSIWYG games.




I've got alot to do to get them up to scratch, i need to rebuild 3 of the lemans, finished chaosing most of them, and refit my baneblade from its iron warrior build to a blood pact build.
