Default Blood Pact Help

Hello boys and girls, my worldeaters are coming to a close (6 more raptors and 2 more rhinos to go). Although my next army is going to be a Godzilla nids force, I can't help to look far into the future at the next army on the block, Blood Pact. I have made a goal for a 1500pts Blood Pact list (which should be up by the end of the week).

Now my list will mainly be made out Storm Troopers [Grenadiers] and hardened vets. Now my question is how to model these troopers and vets to be fitting of blood pact? Also, what about is a good commander model for blood pact? And any other tips and pointer that you can give me will be very much appreciated.

Here's a link to the GW site that can help you with that: Click!

Remember you gonna horns, some signs of mutations on those Blood Pact of yours. If you don't like the colors, you can make the Son Of Sek which is purple, I think. Or maybe make your own traitor army. Use either Cadian or Catachan models.

The distinguishing features of the blood pact are black or bronze "grotesques", masks that are designed to strike fear into the hearts of their enemies. They also have heavily scarred palms, but obviously that doesn't really translate into modelling the army.

Oh, and red armour (duh!)

A mate of mine has a blood pact force, and he used the classic Raptor heads to show the grotesques.

Hello guys,

I have come up with a few ideas on, what to use for models:

Storm Troopers [Grenadiers]: I really like the Kasrkin models, I think i will get those and Chaos them up.

Hardened Veterans: I have toss around a few ideas. First being using the Cadian Shock Troops box set with the Beast Herd box set. My second idea is using some Necromunda models, mainly the House Goliath Gang.

Commander: A model caught my eye, Mordheim Hunter model looks sweet and i think would be a great commander.

Of course i'm open to ideas and suggestions.

Sounds like a solid start... the Kasrkin models should be a good basis for Blood Pact cos they already have masks, a bit of greenstuff will reult in a pretty good "grotesque".

I started sculpting the Grotesques, its not actually that tricky a project with a bit of practice, a small blob of GS goes on the face, you then pull out the nose and push in the mouth, followed by marking out the creases, add teeth once the mouth is cured (or before if you feel upto it) and yoru pretty much done.




Personlly though I'd go that bit further an jsut use Cadian plastics, perhaps with some other bits like the Catachans and Chaos Marauders mixed in for the whole lot, uparmour them with Chainmail, and the odd plate and your most of the way there.

They look sweet, I feel inspired... if only I didn't already have several projects on the go...

I think it is somewhere lol, but since the OP was asking for ideas about it made sense just to drop them in.
