Allow me first to apologise, there will be no current work in progress photo's for about a week, which is a trick i usual hate when i see i log, so hence the apology, but the pictures will start in a weeks time. and with that...
Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the blood pact log of my humble self. So allow me to explain what is to occur here, over the past few months i have been steadily rebuilding my love for the hobby, as well as parts of my life. around six months ago i came to a head with a depression that had, unknowingly to me, been crushing me for over a year. Suprisingly what pulled me through was just one moment, just one model. The grot tank. It inspired me to build over 3k+ worth of works, and paint around 1-1.5ks worth in just 5 months. However, there comes a point when you hit a limit with an army and even my love of greenskins can't overide the fact that they've become, since 5th edition, one of the lesser races. It also didn't help i'm become a complete tread head. So, i asked myself, whats the solution?
I used to be an iron warrior fan of epic proportions (at one point i had a serious volume of armoured might, including two baneblades back in the days when the plastic kit was only a few months old) but since 2007 i haven't been able to use them with codex; not quite chaos marines. It would be a.... an act of heresy against the dark gods to do so. But there is something else that niggled at me. Chaos. Chaos has always been one of my major draws to the hobby, in fact probably the largest, and in 2007 i made an armoured fist company and a few test models for the Blood pact. This was the result:
At the time i was happy with them, but i got sucked in to orks when the codex came out and i was forever chosen by gork and mork to be a vessel of their will.
But khorne cannot be so easily dismissed, and since i am no longer grapling with my depression on a daily basis, but instead finding ways to beat its causes, i now find the voice of chaos whispers to me. So it was i commited myself to my next major project. How major you ask? Very. Insanely big, to the point where i'm not sure i can justify the expenditure, but at the same time i need to do it. So What is it?
Well, the title sort of gives that away. I want to build a major blood pact armoured division, with a host of lemans, chimera, artillery pieces and super heavies. I want to bring the full might of Gaur to the field, and i want to fulfill my urge to own an armoured company. So next week, as a christmas present to myself, i am buying the models to complete the following 750 list;
it's got alot of blast template potential, enough armour to worry people and enough anti-tank/monstro creature to put down anything too hard.i know the stubber is an unusual choice on the leman, but when i worked the points out i had 10 going spare so i thought to myself... get a stubber, and the leman is the only tank in that list that's going the ability to use it with an increased chance of reaping its points cost back.+HQ+ 125

It'll expand from there, but this is only month 1's list, so i've got alot to do before i start looking for more friends. If there is any C&C going, i'll gladly listen.
