Keeping in Theme with the World Eater Beserkers I decided to restart my Blood Pact Army and try to get it at least battle ready.
I have a Looted Mars Patern Leman Russ with just the right amount evil.
At the same time I am also painting the Vanquisher Command Turret.





I have have modeled The Blood Pact's answer to Pask,the brillant tank commander
Romellor.


Next are the Dreaded Blood Pact Grenadiers
I used the tiny Khorne symbol on all the helmets in place of the eagle



And I almost have one of every HW squad,just have two left bolter and mortar

Oh these are beautiful. The se of Krieg as Blood Pact is nigh perfect as these models really show brutal dedicated warriors rather than kill crazy slaughterers which too many supposed blood pact armies emphasise. I prefer the Khorne as a martial god including tactics look these imply.

These last two Heavy Weapons teams finishes them up.
I now have one of each type.
I also scuplted a grotesk over a Vostroyan Comm officer for use as either the Evil Master Of Ordinace.
I think tomarrow I bust out the airbrush for the tank and finish baseing the Grenadiers.

That comm officer is excellent he really looks the part. The veterans are keeping up the same high standard. These are some of the finest renegades I've ever seen!

Here is the Leman Russ all finished and weathered minus tracks.
I painted and weathered them separately a long time ago in fact.
This has gone through what I call "The Process" a little bit of everything
Weathering Powders,Oil Paint,Verdi-Gris.
The idea with the icons is the top piece is also the comms anntena as I have it cabled up.

Looking very nice. I'm really liking seeing the Blood Pact, I'm on my second run through on the Gaunt's Ghost series. Are you using Imperial Guard rules with counts as or have you come across a Lost list that you can use?

I'm just curious because I'm looking into starting a traitor guard army myself.

Thanks,

I have finished off the Mars Pattern Leman Russ,tracks and all.
Finished off the small touches like smoke for the exhaust & barrel.
And some fine scratches using a silver pencil.
Please disregard the blank spot where the spare track has to go,forgot to glue it on ,before the pics

The comms guy is self scuplted, any one on the HW teams that are not FW renegades are from Max-mini fallen legionaire heads.

interesting take on these guys... looks like i'm not the only one doing them. not quite sure why you've got the undivided symbols going on? similarly not keen on the use of DKOK as blood pact minis.

that said, love the vox firstborn, and the oxidisation theme's pretty good!

I'm very happy to see you start working on your Blood Pact again, I really like the weathering on the tanks, especially the tracks and the bronze.

If you don't mind sharing I'd like to know how you weather it.

Skrall it is not incorrect to put an Undivided symbol on Khorne Forces.
If it were the only symbol on the tank I would tend to agree with ya,but it shares the space with some pretty large Khorne symbols themselves.
The Undivided symbol is correct for all Chaos forces.
Your take on me using DkoK,well just have to agree to disagree on that one,If I could the enitre force would be made using DKoK Grenadiers.
Checked out your Pact,they are pretty good I might even steal the model you used for a priest for my WireWolves

The Weathering is something I call "The Process" I'll maybe do a tute one day,long story short
Black Primer,
Alclad 2 Steel(boltgun metal),
Latex Masking fluid with sponge,
Paint and Highlight Tank,
Add symbols&Text,
remove mask,
spray with glosscote until satin sheen,
Burnt Umber Oil Paint Pinwash
Spray with Dullcote
Dust Tank Lightly with MIG Industrial City Dirt (ICD)
Use Mona Lisa Thinner Damp brush not dripping and coat model going in the direction of runof(On top ,front to back and down the sides top to bottom to simulate rainmarks)
Dust Tracks Liberally with MIG ICD fix with thinner by barely touching thinner damp brush to model.
Crush up some graphite and apply to the area of track that makes contact with the ground
Use pencil to add fine scratches.

A method from the fine scale community.
For instance the WWII tanks where the armor has a slightly pitted or rough texture like on the sherman.
You take plastic glue and paint it on a plastic model where you want the texturemlet it get soft for about a minute then using an old cut down brush like used to stippling you well stipple it.
It gives the armor a hammer beaten look to it.

thanks man! however, i disagree on the symbology logic. if blood pact are the forces of urlock guar, and he in turn is a world eater (or one hell of khorne devotee murhen) then why would they worship other gods? khorne wouldn't be too happy that they are giving his tithe to other gods, especially since he is the guy who provides them with certain things. just from a fluff stance that is, from a modelling point of view. from a modelling point of view; what ever floats your boat

As for the sek.. pretty good, could use something to make it more khornate though... probably just a symbol or something.

refrence of sek himself';

Hoy there,
Gorgeous blood pact! Very nice indeed. You may well find these heads useful:
http://www.secretweaponminiatures.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=47_48&zenid=v0fltce796n8supbb35mhvrp23
The two variations on Oni Masks. I'm using them for mad-ass non-traitor guard, but they seem custom made purely for blood pact. Getting them onto Cadian bodies requires a bit of filing and fitting, but they look great when they're done.

Also, I like the Son of Sek, although the impression I've got from the books - I may be totally wrong, just talking my gut - is that they're heavy troops, with Carapace armour. I will re-read and check it out, it's high time I did that anyway

Oh, and I am indeed also subscribed. Keep it up!

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - A.E.

Thanks for the link.
I finished off a 10 man Sons of Sek squad,I have my method of modeling renegades down now.
I add armor plate like the FW renegades,knee/elbow pads maybe a groin protector,I like to switch it up not every guy will have kneepads for instance
The latest thing I am working on is the Chimera and what better time than to post up my Armor Painting Tutorial "The Method".
Optimum results are achieved with an airbrush but it is not necessary for most steps.
The only thing I would do differently next time is paint the track separate from the tank for an easier job,I'll just have to be careful on this one.
Taking a black primed tank paint the whole thing a steel color.
I use an airbrush and Alclad II steel but Boltgun Metal will work just as well a good solid coat




Then use Liquid Latex masking fluid and apply with a sponge,do not go crazy less is more.
It really helps to take pictures of this stage like I have done so you can see where all the mask is,some is hard too see once painted over.






Automatically Appended Next Post:
I then used Testors Model Master Olvie Drab enamel to spray the tank olive drab,then using Faded olive drab to dust over the tank after the olive drabwas touch dry.
This can also be made using 3 parts Catachan Grenn with 1 part Charadon Granite.
You want a good solid coat.





Then once touch dry remove the latex mask exposing the steel underneath.
It is important to remove the mask when the model is touch dry the longer you let dry the harder it is to remove the mask.
Keep in mind it takes most paints 24 hours to fully cure,GW included





For the light hearted you can stop right here,add unit markings,pick out a few small details and you are good to go with a better than standard paintjob that would impress anyone.

I only made the mask for the Vostroyan Comms Trooper,the ones on the HW teams that are on cadian bodys are max-mini fallen legionaire heads.
The Sons of Sek have skeleton warrior hands for thier masks
Here is the Segeant of the Sons of Sek squad



I have also figured out a really cool retro way to represent penal legion troops.
Chaos Beastmen with Catachan Arms.
A little putty work is nessessary for the shoulders since they dont line up quite right.
But when covered with fur Impossible to tell.
The guns do not work without chopping the stock off,so I went further and beat the hell up out of it.
With the Catachan camo on the barrel it looks like it is being held togther with tape.
I figure they would give beasts the worst gear.
