I'm a huge fan of Dan Abnett's Gaunt's Ghosts novels, and in particular their signature enemy the Blood Pact. I've been wanting to do a Blood Pact army for years, and over time I've planned any number of conversions and projects, but lack of money and general hobby butterfly syndrome have got in the way. I've planned lists using the Imperial Guard codex, and the Forgeworld Renegades and Heretics but never been entirely satisfied, so I decided to write my own Blood Pact Codex.
This is a 54 page document providing all the datasheets and additional rules you would expect to find in a codex from GW, such as warlord traits, stratagems, artifacts and even a new blood-powered psychic discipline - Haematurgy.
Many units and rules are adapted from existing GW rules, with some of my own designs based on descriptions from Abnett's books. I have not yet done any playtesting, but I would welcome any comments and criticisms, especially feedback on points values etc.
