Daemon Engines? Excellent choice!


A long time ago (or so it seems) I built this Stalk Tank to fight alongside my Blood Pact army. I've always had the desire to build another one, but have lacked the time required. There also wasn't really a pressing need or an easy way to integrate them into a "proper list".

But now 6th Edition has brought along Allies, and the Chaos Space Marine codex has brought some tasty new Daemon Engines. I think I might have to start bulking out the Blood Pact.


First up, I have a Mantis Tank to put together. It was sent to me by my friend Laurent of Blight Wheel Miniatures. It was designed by one of my favorite sculptors (and new addition to the Citadel stable), Morback! Obviously this saves me a great deal of hassle in building one myself, which means I can get stuck into the painting : )

If you are interested in picking up a Mantis Tank you can buy them online here.

I'm also loving the two new plastic Daemon Engines from today's GW releases. I think one of each of the Fiends will do nicely.

I have two Blight Drones from back in the day, one of which is already painted. This seems like a great time to get the other one painted up too.

And finally, I now have two Helbrutes. Perhaps they'd do well supporting my Blood Pact infantry too?

Lots of great Daemon Engine fun on the way. It'll take some time, but hopefully it'll be worth the wait.

Cheers
Dave

PS. I have no idea if they'll actually be any good in the game, I don't have my Codex:CSM yet, but I'm sure I'll enjoy the building and painting part ; )

  1. With the hellbrute it might be nice to have one as Karruss and maybe the other supporting a small allied CSM army (couple of squads) representing the small number of Marines that seem to tag along with the Sabbat Worlds occupation force. Can't remember the name of the chap from traitor general with an affinity for ballistic silverware but he's the sort I mean!

    1. Refresh my memory again, which book was Karruss in? I'm drawing a blank right now.

  2. That Stalk Tank reminds me of a mosquito. In a good way. Intentional? Also, I am glad you did not paint it as an Asian Tiger Mosquito :P We have enough of those around here these days...although, think of the psychological edge it would give you over an opponent once you put it on the table:)

    1. Hi Geoff,

      Nope, praying mantis all the way. It's based on the sketch from the back of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade campaign book from back in the day. Although with all the West Nile going around, you could be right about the psychological impact.

      Cheers
