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

just wondering if any one knows what stalk tanks look like and what their weapons are...

I believe there actually was an article or something done on them once. I'll have to see if I can dig it up...

Google is your friend...

Seriously, a simple Google image search will reveal everything that you want.

And this should be in the "Forces of Chaos" section.

Way to not be helpful, all an image search gets you are some player made, non-canon miniatures :.

There was WD on them a while back, might be hard to lay hands on but it had rules for basic Pact infantry. I'm not sure about the Stalk Tanks, but the Reavers, SteGGs and the Earthshaker carriers (forgotten the name) shouldn't be too hard to make house rules for.

Non-Canon... I wasn't aware there was any?

Anyways, some of my favorites.

An article on the background of, and on how to play with, the Blood Pact can be found in UK White Dwarf #293. Sadly, no pictures nor suggestions on modelling Stalk Tanks and/or AT-80 Light Tanks are given, though it is suggested that a Defiler is used both as a model and a rules-equivalent for a Stalk Tank.

Sadly, the article suggests that the Lost and the Damned army list be used to represent the Blood Pact (with an addition given in the article itself), but with the latest release of Codex: Chaos Space Marines, that might be hard to do in and of itself.

I hope this helps!

Well in my opinion stalker tanks should be light walkers (NOT Massive Defilers)
perhaps using Rules similar to Penitent Engines (fast, Killy but poorly armoured) and witch hunters ain't that bad for representing Blood pact. (storm troopers = Blood pact troopers)
just stay away from SOB's and you cant go too wrong.

Exorcists mightn't be a bad "count as" for the Tank

(fiver Say's y'all think I'm mad. Inquisition "count as" Chaos but honestly the Inquisition are on a fine line.)
