New Blood Pact models & desk

I was pretty excited a couple months back and posted that Blight Wheel minis would be making a model that was perfect for use as Loxatl.  Well the model will never be put on the market; GW issued a cease & desist order.  So the search for good Blood Pact models continues!

I found these great heads from Blight Wheel that are perfect for Blood Pact.  They're right up there with the ones from Maxmini.  I ordered them as well as their walking tank for fear of GW trying to make them stop production of those as well.

I can finally stop converting helmetless heads to have a mask!

The helmet is bigger than my other models, but it still works.

The mantis walking tank is much bigger than I imagined a stalk tank, but it certainly works!  Only the large pieces are pictured here, the smaller leg bits and forward grasping arms & top gun are still in their baggie.  I cleaned all his parts up, not too many mold lines, but they usually ran across a smooth surface so they were a bit annoying.

A titan must have stepped on him.

I also went through my Blood Pact links here, deleting the dead ones and putting in more specific links so you don't have to trawl through an entire photo album to find the Pact pictures.

Lastly, I picked up a new painting desk from IKEA that is tall enough I don't have to hunch over to paint or build.


  1. Great to see you blogging Pact again, your work was an inspiration for my on BP army. I have a fair bit of work converting that Mantis tank to look more like a Stalk tank, I will be posting some pics of that on my blog in the next few days.

  2. Sir Tainly, that is quite an honor as your work is fantastic. I'm especially covetous of your scratch-built vehicles. I was just ogling your U90s today in fact (and canned a future post welcoming your blog to my Blood Pact links, funny enough). They have just the right amount of M7 Priest to them. My thanks for your kind words. Best of luck with your move!

  3. Nice to see you back ! Good to see your blood pact still going from strength to strength.

  4. I'm still shaking off the rust, but it's good to blog again. Thanks for the encouragement!

  5. Nice! Love how the blight wheel heads look - those are gonna look great!

    I was surprised at how big the mantis tank was when I put mine together. It's a beast - looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.

    Welcome back, mate!

  6. Thank you sir! I built seven or eight Pact troopers last week for no good reason, but the mojo still isn't back.

  7. Thanks! :) I'm moved now, but just waiting for my 40k to catch up with me now. I have some big plans for my BP army in the next few months so hopefully you'll like the projects as they come about. One or two might even be something commercial, but I need to get a few things in order before that can happen.

  8. Looking forward to it!
