Event Description:

 

Welcome to the 8th iteration of the Sons of Dorn Expansion (formerly known as the Imperial Fists Expansion), an event designed to motivate you to get your unpainted models out of their dusty boxes and to slap enough paint onto them to call them "finished"!

 

If you want to join in, follow these four easy steps:

  1. Gather your unfinished models that represent one of the many Chapters of Rogal Dorn's bloodline (or even the mighty VIIth Legion itself);
  2. Take a picture of them in their current state and post it in this thread along with a vow to paint them before the end of the event (Sunday 24th April 2022 at 23:59 in your timezone);
  3. Once the models are painted to a level that you are happy with, take a picture of them and post in this thread to mark your vow as complete;
  4. If you've managed to complete your vow before 24th April and feel like painting some more, go back to step 1 and do it all again!

If you lack the inspiration and/or time to come up with an inspiring vow, consider using the following example as a foundation:

 

I, (insert forum name), vow in the name of Rogal Dorn and the (insert Chapter name) to complete (insert unit/model name and quantity) by 24th April 2022.

For Dorn, Terra, and the Emperor!

 

If you have any questions, check out the Q&A section below. If you can't find an answer to your question below, feel free to ask in this thread or contact Dosjetka via personal message (PM).

 

Now get building and painting in the name of our Primarch and the Emperor! :thumbsup:

 

Event Q&A:

 

Q: Can I vow models that already have paint on them?

A: Yes! You can vow any model as long as you consider it to be unfinished.

 

Q: Can I paint up my models in the colours of a custom Chapter of my own design?

A: As long as you claim them to be from Dorn's gene-line, you can!

 

Q: Can I paint models that are currently in service of the Deathwatch or the Legio?

A: Of course, as long as they're from a Dornian Chapter; they still wear their Chapter colours with pride on their right pauldron after all!

 

Q: Can I vow models that are vowed in other events?

A: Yes!

 

Q: Can I post ongoing progress pictures or just when the final ones?

A: The more in-progress pictures, the merrier!

 

Q: Is there an event banner for my signature space?

A: I'm glad you asked! It's tradition on the B&C to have signature banners for events and this is no exception! I've already got the banner in my signature, what's your excuse? :wink:

I, Dosjetka, vow in the name of Rogal Dorn and the Black Templars Chapter to complete an Emperor's Champion, six Crusader Squad Initiates, three Assault Squad Initiates, and a Razorback by 24th April 2022.

 

Failure is not an option.

Does it count if the Imperial Fist is basing material? 

How big is the piece of basing material? Is it a shoulder pad or something similar, I'd say no. If it's a complete or almost complete model (a dead Space Marine, for example), I'd say yes.

Pretty much an entire Space Marine, yeah - torso, head, legs and so on.

Perfect timing! I could use some motivation, before pic to come.

Welcome to the Expansion, Jud! Looking forward to seeing more of your work. :thumbsup:

 

Do models for a Heresy Imperial Fists Legion count or do they have to be 40K?

Of course. Derp, I meant to say that they can be Legion models, too! :facepalm::smile.:

I, Reinhard, vow in the name of Rogal Dorn and the Black Templars to complete High Chaplain Grimaldus and retinue, 15 Primaris Sword brethren and 16 Primaris Crusaders (9 initiates and 8 neophytes) by 24th April 2022.

 

No Pity! No Remorse! No Fear!

 

EDIT: The before pictures.... Missing a single Neophyte and initiate which are currently in transit so ill take a photo of them later

 

Grimaldus is far along but not done, missing highlights & details. The retinue is still on the sprue, figure i'll add a shot of them when they're assembled

First 3 of the sword brethren are really far along as well, but not finished yet:

Next 12 don't even have heads or arms yet, on account of me not having chosen what they'll go with:
