Well, before we get into the Heavy Metal here's a look at my latest ten Blood Pact Troopers. These guys are predominantly the Forgeworld Chaos Renegade torsos, so there wasn't quite as much conversion work. I was able to put that conversion time into the Stalk Tank you saw earlier in the week.
While they're easier to build, I still enjoy painting them. I'm up to 5 squads plus the command squad. Not too bad. I'm going to take a break from the troopers for a while and concentrate of getting some support painted for them.
This weapons team is rocking a short barreled autocannon. I saw this look somewhere online earlier this week and liked it so much I had to steal it. Thank you anonymous modeler.
Here they are, the first two tanks that'll be supporting my Blood Pact. On the left is the Malcador Defender. I was originally going to use this tank in my Genswick 33rd Rifles army, but its "old school" feel is just perfect for the forces of the Archenemy. The tank on the right is the Valdor Tank Hunter. It was just too cool to leave out of my collection!
I love the crude feel of the Malcador Defender. The long, low profile is broken by the nest bristling with 5 heavy bolters. These guns can bring lots of dakka to bear on many parts of the battlefield at the same time. Note: the tank will not be a dark green, but the Dark Flesh color of the Pacters fatigues.
The Valdor is obviously compensating for something, but I'm sure that Neutron Laser will be able to deal some stunning blows against enemy armored formations.
More on the armored support for my Pact later!
