Default Blood pact?

Im kind of not even sure if this belongs under imperial guard but i was wondering if anyone knew the backround information on bloodpact stalk tanks and their AT-80 light tanks

they are partialy fetured in the sabbat worlds crusade books with guants ghosts by dan abnett

like how the stalk tank looks and what its weapons are.

I think Stalk tanks are essentially a psychic and slightly smaller version of a defiler.

Rules wise you could give it the hell hounds rules. Which fit since the attack is an area attack at range.


the other tanks were pretty much the really old russ variants. AFAIK

My take on Stalk Tanks is to use Sentinel rules, the Multilaser represents a pulse laser by description, it is a walker as opposed to any other option rules wise which is appropriate and in terms of how tough it is, I'd say it was fitting, one example which makes it feel appropriate to me is that one was run over by a heavier armour piece I forget if it was a Reaver or Brigand in Sabbat Martyr (during the engagement when three Life Company Vanquishers enagaged Bloodpact armour).

As to the Reaver, I'd suggest a FW Conqueror as being the best rules set to use with the Brigand as a regular Leman Russ.

yeah

i got smaller defiler answers from lots of websites

but if i were to use sentinel stat lines or hellhound statlines i was wondering how i would convert such out of a actual defiler

a hellhound i could make work....

I'd use Sentinel stats, to be honest. Afterall, Stalk Tanks perform basically the same role, and are armed with multi-laser type weapons.

Why convert it out of an expensive defiler when you could convert it out of a cheaper Sentinel or two and be a more reasonable size for a light support vehicle.

i would use a defiler to make is chaosesqe

and they are described to have 6 legs that worked arachnid like

according to dan abnett.

i like the idea of using the hellhound stat line as in the they are assualt vehicles and take a little more firepower to bring down then a sentinel.
