ok i have desided to repaint my cadians as blood pact (after 4 years so lots to strip).
they will be chaos cultists so i am makeing my doctorines fit acordingly
so my doctirines are:
4.Close order drill
i hope a bacic "blood pact unit will be resonably capable on there own (reson for all the doctorines) and a devistateingly organized force (like in the gaunts gosts novels).
i may include conscript platoons to repusent ragtag heretics.
here we go
Command platoon 150pts
Comand squad 150pts
power wepon (chain axe)
1 master vox
Infantry platoon 345pts
Platoon comand 67pts
power wepon (chain axe)
Squad 1A 141pts
Squad 1B 137pts
what do you think? will they perform?
this is a first for me (with all the upgrades) i plan to exspand to 2500pts (as i salvage old minis).
Ok drop the hardened fighters, carapace armour, and die-hards doctrines from your entire army. You only need one vet in your command squad and that is the medic. Finally and most importantly drop the entire vox network. that should save you 132 points if you drop a few upgrades like the sergeants you can take two more infantry squads. Or maybe take 40 or so conscripts to represent those average chaos cultists, or maybe even some imperial citizens captured and forced to fight their liberation force.
Off topic but who is your favorite gaunts ghosts character i personally like Gol Kolea.
IG Best Gen 1st overall of 10 DE 4th overall of 6
Eldar 3rd Overall/Best General of 26--2nd Overall/Best General of 7--1st Overall/Best General of 11
i was kinda going for something new i had a minimalist gaud list previously and they did verry well i just wanted a breath of fresh air... armour saves against bolters would be nice and wepon skill 4 but die hards would be overkill so i will drop that.
this particular army is fluff baced so to bring me to 1500pts i plan to add a second platoon and a leman russ a demolisher and (if they fit) an armoured fist squad. after this i will have 3 units of hardened vets to play with (i took veterans as a doctorine in 4th ed) i may make a light infantry army baced on the tanith/belladon but i would have to do lots of converting as there are only 8 or 9 tanith moddels and no belladon i guess i would have to find some other minis to proxy as belladon...
my favourite gaunts gosts character is between Soric and Kolea (both there storys are tragic in different ways) but rawn,dorden,corbec,milo and varl are high up there to
