Unlike many Chaos cultist warbands, the Pact fights as a disciplined army, and this is what makes them so effective compared to the disorganized Chaotic masses. Consisting of highly trained, vicious soldiers and alien mercenaries, the soldiers of the Blood Pact know no fear or hesitation. They have overrun entire worlds and caused the people of the Imperium no small amount of suffering and woe.
These troops are painted up as Blood Pact - a unit of chaos cultists who are actually decent troops and certainly have the law of numbers on their side. I will play them with the terrific Iron Ivan "Disposable Heroes" rules, using a 41st Millennium supplement I made myself. If anyone wants to see it, I can provide a link to my Google Documents page where it "lives" now. I have rules and stats for Guard, Space Marines, Orcs, and Blood Pact troopers.
The unit below is a squad but is more like 3 fireteams right now. Each team has 1 support weapon. I am currently repainting all of my guardsmen and will post them soon. After that, get ready for some Sci-Fi Disposable Heroes action! Orcs and all... Huzzah!
