Want to do a replacment unit for Stormtroopers in my
Bloodpact codex wondered what you guys think.
100 PTS
BS4 /scout/stubborn and ruthless(desperadoes)
The equipment / options of avet sqd for same pts.
Overcosted/undercosted would you play against them?
Ive mixed the vets and penal troops to make this unit.

Belongs in the rules development forum..

As to over/undercosted, it would entirely depend on the rest of the codex.

Sorry guys feel free to move thanks for the reply.
Codex basically guard,with more aproperiate units from the vraks list
eg Beserker ogryns/mutant rabble/bloodgor beastman attack sqds
and ogryn handler and chaos hounds.

please dont combine codex guard with the vraks books or it will just reek of cherry picking whether that is you intention or not, I would love for my servants of decay to be able to use valkyries but dont do it for precisely this reason.

if you want your blood pact use vraks 2

I know what your saying.
But i did not just pick out units to make the list harder.
The codex was aproved from my local club.
And only used there.
The vraks list is good .
But is not as organised as the guard list.
The pact seem to be more guard list.
I wanted to take the more khorne elements from the Vraks2
For instance i could not see the pact routed as easily as
the vraks units.
Maybe i should use the Vraks list but bulk out on enforcers.

I dont have access to my vraks series at the moment (back at home) but have you considered disciples of xaphan? I realise taking these would limit the amount of ogryn berserkers however as they are both elites. The death brigade themselves are seen as the elite of the bloodpact IIRC, to me this would make the disciple of xaphan a good choice for them, especially when compared to the vraksian militia you would really see them shine.

I envy you having a club thats cool with FW, usually I have to beg a game with my servants of decay.

I think he is making his own renegade codex using elements of the Imperial Guard codex. He is replacing the Stormtrooper entry with his own unit of Blood Pact Death Brigade.

I think they are fine in the Elites section, however I would give them FC or counter attack....oh and WS 4. That way they are basically what they are suppose to be, powerful heavy assault infantry.

The desperadoes special rule means.D6
1-2 assault 2 las.
3-4c-attack/fleet and fc.
5-6 extra ccw and rending.
This i think makes these guys scream bloodpact.
Just bin to me club.My oponent next week said he'd look
forward to fighting them.With his Adeptus Custodes.
So guys overpriced or underpriced?
And thank you every body for your comments.
And our club is easy going.
Shame not all clubs are like this.
