  1. Honourable Fraters, Having recently returned to the hobby after 5 editions break, I have been chosen by the Blood Angels. They had always held a special place in my heart. I have been collecting BA miniatures for quite some time now in a very un-orderly fashoin. A chaplain here, a devastator there. At first I was choosing miniatures by their look and feel. Then there was the "hmm-I-might-need-that-one-at-some-point" approach. All in all I have ended up with quite a few kilos of plastic. Some of those were roughly splashed red and sent to battle. Some remained anonymously grey. Having been a long time lurker of these Halls, I finally gathered my courage and joined the the Blood & Zeal 2018 event. This gave me the opportunity to get rid of some of the sprues that were choking my boxes and drawers. Now with the ETL VI I got the motivation to paint at least some of it to the tabletop standard. The hobby has always been about collecting and modelling for me. I'm hoping that this WIP thread will help me along the way. I also strongly feel the need to contribute to the Community that has provided me with inspiration for years :) My force is based on the 5th Company "Daemonbanes" with elements from other companies and Chapter HQ. Currently completed are: ++Chapter HQ++ Commander Dante, Warden of Imperium Nihilus The Sanguinor ++Sanguinary Priesthood++ (1 Sanguinary Priest) Sanguinary Priest (JP) ++Reclusiam++ (5 Chaplains, 1 initiate) High Chaplain Astorath the Grim Chaplain Venerable Dreadnought Chaplain (TDA) Primaris Chaplain Primaris Chaplain on bike Chaplain (JP) Chaplain (PF) Custodian of the Damned (Judiciar) ++Librarius++ (6 Librarians) Chief Librarian Mephiston Librarian Epistolary (TDA) Librarian Epistolary (JP, sword) Librarian Epistolary (JP, Staff) Librarian Epistolary (Phobos) Librarian Dreadnought ++Armoury++ (2 Techmarine) Techmarine Kadmos Primaris Techmarine Malatesta ++Sanguinary Guard++ 7 Sanguinary Guards ++5th Company, "Daemonbanes"++ (96/100 marines + HQ) HQ: Captain Sendini >>JP, TH, Combi-Melta >>Relic blade, MC Bolter Primaris Lieutenant (PS/SS) Company Ancient Company Champion 1st squad Intercessors (10) 2nd squad Intercessors (5) 3rd squad Heavy Intercessors (10) 4th squad Infiltrators (10 +Helix Adept) 5th squad Incursors (10) 6th squad Assault Intercessors (10) 7th squad Outriders (3) 8th squad Inceptors (dakka) (6) 9th squad Devastators (10) 10th squad Hellblasters (10) 11th squad Aggressors (6) 16th squad Inceptors (plasma) (6) Contemptor Dreadnought Redemptor Dreadnought Leviathan Siege Dreadnought Storm Speeder Whirlwind artillery tank Predator battle tank Baal Predator battle tank "Fury" Vindicator siege tank Sicaran battle tank "Wyvern" Kratos heavy assault tank Razorback APC (TAC) x2 Rhino APC Rhino APC (Deimos pattern) Impulsor Firestrike Turret Drop Pod ++1st Company, "Archangels"++ (40 Marines) HQ: Captain Karlaen, Shield of Baal Ancient Radequisto Sternguard Veterans (7) Vanguard Veterans (5) Assault Terminators (Indomitus) (6) (TH/SH, LC) Terminators (Indomitus) (6) (SB/PF, CML, AC) 3rd Squad Vanguard Veterans (5) (PC/SS) 10th Squad Relic terminators (5) (CB/LC + HF/LC) 11th Squad Bladeguard Veterans (3) 12th Squad Bladeguard Veterans (2) (3 planned) Terminators (Tartaros) (5 planned) ++3rd Company, "Ironhelms"++ (1 Marine) HQ: Captain Erasmus Tycho, Master of Sacrifice ++8th Company, "Bloodblades"++ (4 Marines) 2 Invader ATVs ++9th Company, "Sunderers"++ (6 Marines) 13th squad Eradicators (4) (6 planned) 14th squad Eradicators (2) (3 planned) ++10th Company, "Redeemers"++ (23 scouts) HQ: Captain Borgio, Master of Recruits 1st squad (CCW +ML (8) 2nd squad (Bolters +HB)(6) 3rd squad (Bolters + HB) (6) 10th squad Scout Bikes (3) --10th Company Vanguard detachment-- (19 Marines) HQ: Vanguard Captain, Master of Reconnaissance Squad Pi Eliminators (3) Squad Sigma Eliminators (3) Squad Omega Eliminators (3) Squad Omega Eliminators (1) (3 planned) 13th squad Suppressors (3) 14th squad Suppressors (3 planned) 15th squad Suppressors (3 planned) 16th squad Incursors (5) (10 planned) ++The Lost++ (12 marines) Chaplain Lemartes Death Company Dreadnought Death Company (6) Death Company Intercessors (5) ++Air Support++ Stormtalon gunship ++Imperial Supporting Elements++ Inquisitor Nicolau d'Salas (another thread) Eversor assassin Culexus assassin (another thread) Callidus assassin (another thread) Imperial Knight Armiger Warglaive
  2. For the benefit of the Unforgiven and as a special thanks to Captain Semper for last year's ETL I made an out of competition vow to finish painting a Fallen warband before this year's ETL. Hopefully pictures of these heretics will inspire you to paint more units for this year's ETL. I have some proper Dark Angels too but they're a long way down the queue at the moment. http://i.imgur.com/LRwLUwq.jpg In case the Interrogator Chaplains need the names .. for their records, they are as follows: Cypher {1st squad} Lord Lancelot Sir Galahad Sir Gawain Sir Bedivere Sir Tristan Sir Percival {2nd squad} Sgt Ramesis Brother Tiberius Brother Aaron Brother Nymeon Brother Bathsheebus Brother Tyrael -- The reason for the different titles are so that I can distinguish between the two squads if they get into a multiple combat but each squad's Fallen Champion is either labelled 'sgt' or 'lord'. It could also be that they represent different factions within the Fallen brought together by Cypher. But are they their real names? Everyone knows what liars they are... They were designed with the rules from Gathering Storm III: Rise of the Primarch, which was interesting as that was the.. second time (?) Fallen have ever had actual rules but it felt a lot better than just CSM labelled as Fallen; these had the veteran statline and the full equipment complement of a standard CSM (or upgraded Grey Hunter). Thanks for viewing. If you need any close-ups of individual models don't hesitate to ask.
  3. For the first time in the ETL, we are introducing the title of "ETL Master Artificer", a title to be decided by the B&C community at large. The list above contains the names of the ETL VI participants that obtained the title of the Artificer in alphabetical order, and is the group from which the Master Artificer will emerge! Vote which one you prefer, and to help you decide, I have included in the next post, pictures with examples of the Artificers' work with pictures made and approved by them. A few pointers" Any member of the B&C is welcome to vote - you don't have to have participated in the ETL to do so. This is open to all. Vote on the basis of the quality work done (personal criteria obviously) - not on the basis of the in-Universe faction you prefer You do not have to justify your vow. If you want to leave comments however, feel free to do so. You may vote more than one option! You don't have to choose only one - unless of course you like only one option over and above everyone else. Vote which one(s) you prefer, and to help you decide, I have included below, pictures with examples of the Artificers' work with pictures taken and approved by them. This topic will remain open until Sunday, August 12, where the rank of the Master Artificer will be awarded to one of the above Artificers! 1. Augustus b'Raass: A Typhus to die for! 2. Calyptra: Scourges ready for the party! 3. FearPeteySodes: Space Wolves attack! 4. Interrogator Stobz: Who let the Warhounds out? 5. Jam Master Flex: Yellow galore! 6. Kizzdougs: Heresy most heretical - are you Alpharious? 7. KrautScientist: Armiger with driver? 8. LutherMax: Suave Raptor Captain on cog wheels! 9. oldschoolsoviet: Knights are incorruptible, right? http://i.imgur.com/YgJzieX.jpg 10. Shas’O R’alai: Big Yellowfin Tuna 11. Spagunk: Maybe a happy Chaplain lives here 12. Tankus Wokus: An Ancient and an ancient Apothecary 13. TheOneTrueZon: Moody Film Noir! 14. Vay: Yes, that's the Manta you're looking for! 15. Vykes: Horus' own!
  4. Okay, so here is my Dusk Crows 2nd Company project, an effort to reduce the grey pile of plastic and actually get models painted. I've made a good start during the ETL VI with these guys: I'm happy with the final decisions on colour scheme, chapter markings and how they turned out. The bases will be done, I just need to work out what colour will look best. I have some scouts with camo cloaks, which will be done to match the base. I'm leaning towards black/grey as I'm happy with how the grey crossbelts look on the assault marines. I also intend to make a gaming table in the same colour, time permitting. Which I never seem to have much of. After some thought I'm aiming for 1000 points of marines. Next up are these guys: Yes, some basic tacticals partially put together 20 odd years ago and wallowing in unpainted hell. I've made a start on changing bases to 32mm, dug the bolters out of my bits box and rummaged for an hour looking for the missing shoulder pads. Some reposing was required as when I put them together I appear to have been obsessed with not having them all look the same, so 7 out of 10 appear to be shooting at the air which looks odd. (Especially as no fliers existed in game at the time!) There was something strangely satisfying about clipping the plasma gunner's hands off and filing to fit the plasma gun. This was stolen off a Space Wolf in exchange for flamers, so the purity seal hides the rune on it. The one on the other side will be filled to not show. I know tacticals are not considered great, but I'd feel guilty not running at least one squad. Don't panic brothers, scouts are also on the list.
  5. Whilst the BA Showcase thread exists for everything, the following thread is to showcase our endeavours during our historic ETL VI campaign. Don't be shy, show off your work below!
  6. Hello again. Its time to show off my WIP command Razorback with t/l assault cannons. Actually I need advice. I was thinking about writing '4th company' on the banner somehow but don't know if this will ruin it. What do you think? Is it enough that 4th company has the green spot colour? The banner was downloaded from Wargames Foundry, in the free downloads section. It's actually a Viking standard but I repainted the background green and filled in the internal lines on the raven image. The Apothecary is one of my favourites. I'll refrain from retaking pictures of my ETL units until I've painted a few more details on about 16 marine infantry, like that missile launcher tactical marine in the last picture. Until then I'm more in the mood for painting tanks or drop pods.
  7. Right folks, it's that time of year again: the ETL is upon us. This is what we've been building towards. What is the ETL? The acronym for E Tenebrae Lux, the ETL originated as a painting challenge put forth by the Dark Angels sub-forum. This has since blossomed into a full on, inter-forum painting competition whereby an individual vows a legal unit (or units) for a particular faction and has to paint them to completion (in the owners eyes) within a three month time frame. The faction with the most points painted is crowned the winner earning eternal glory (special signatures, etc) and a year's worth of bragging rights. ETL I can be found here ETL II can be found here ETL III can be found here ETL IV can be found here ETL V can be found here Our Heritage As you all know, Blood Angels and their Successors study the arts. Our extended lifespan allows us to pursue and master the finer things in life and it is often remarked how exquisite the works of our artisans are. Certainly our preponderance for Artificer Armour, master-crafted weaponry, tapestries and so on show this off and back in the real world, some of the best painted models on the B&C are Blood Angels. In the previous painting challenge, the Librarium challenge (which is currently on permanent hiatus) our faction had a long and distinguished roll of honour whereby we won the event year ofter year. However, for the first three events this hadn't transferred into the ETL: In ETL I we finished fifth (out of seven participants). In ETL II we finished fifth (out of eight participants). In ETL III we finished seventh (out of eight participants). That said, we threw the form book out of the window for ETL IV: We finished fourth (out of seven participants) and within sight of second place Our participant level (83) was at a record high Our number of vows (130) was at a record high Completed points (41,285) was at a record high Final score (26,197) was at a record high ... and this set us up nicely for ETL V – where we came fifth. Wait, what? Despite being in third place throughout, generating our highest ever final score (29,116), and knocking out a completion rate competition high of 86.5 %, we were knocked down into fifth place (out of seven participants) by a small matter of 3000 points come the end of the competition. Our commitment can't be faulted. Our dedication and morale can't be faulted. What lost us third place was an average vow of 402 points (competition average is usually in the high 700s) and this is what we need to change. Whilst every little most certainly helps (and should you go down this route, knock out the five vows as quick as possible), vowing big (yet manageable) at the start and re-vowing smaller items will put us in good stead for the event. They do say to plan twice, and paint once... However, we haven't been caught unawares. Due to the Gift of Foresight that many of us are blessed with, the Great Baalite Bake Off and Blood & Zeal events have put us in an amazing place of readiness – the B&Z alone has seen us get almost 1000 PL of models event ready. Furthermore, the participation levels, camaraderie, and utterly phenomenal completion rates seen during these have us in tip-top condition going into an ETL – we have never been this well prepared and it's all down to you and how you've responded. This is it, the last push, the assault on Terra of events, and one we can't fail. With our resources, history, and buoyed by the success of the GBBO and B&Z, we remain a dark horse for ETL VI - but only with your unwavering and appreciated support. Our Competition We will have seven other Factions to see off in this event: Age of Darkness (or AoD) are those who play FWs 30k expansion. Make no mistake, their resources are huge, however, we've somehow kept pace the two previous ETLs. Despite their vast manpower they have two glaring weaknesses, the first is their tendency to burnout during the event (meaning if we keep up they can be caught) whilst the second is the perceived stagnation of the game (according to the internet that is). They will be looking to cast off these tags and finally attain their potential – but again, we can't let them out of our sight. This year they will be split into loyalists and traitors where they compete together and against one another for the three titles Chaos (comprising of the CSM, 1kS, DG, R&H, & Daemons fora) are the reigning champions with a winning streak stretching back to 2014. To make matters worse, they have also been bolstered by the addition of Codex Thousand Sons and Codex Death Guard. However, all is not lost! Constant winning breeds complacency whilst a backing as large as they can potentially command can result in a lower completion and re-vowing rate. One day they will be caught and made to pay for their crimes against us. Split into Heretic Astartes (C:CSM, 1kS, DG), R&H, Daemons - combined for ETL Magister, but competing against one another for the other two titles Dark Angels are due a good run and having had their Codex around the same time as ours there should be enough in the tank for a painting bounce. They will also want to “put us in our place” having finished below us for the past two events. A wounded animal is dangerous and if they can get their motivation going we'll be in trouble – like us, they are sleeping giants of the B&C painting event history. We are with them for ETL Magister, against them for the rest Imperial Forces of Reknown (IFOR – comprising of the Guard, Ad Mech, Imperial Agents, and Sisters fora) have the potential to be huge – carried by the Guard and Ad Mech fora, their vows are often massive give the super-heavies at their disposal. With the Sisters star rising following their teaser a few weeks back, recent releases (including Custodes), and wanting to get rid of the wooden spoon from ETL V, they will have a point to prove – and that's before we know if they will be joined by the Grey Knights and Deathwatch fora (confirmed) Playing against one another for Primus Inter Pares & Dominus Exercitus, together for ETL Magister Index (comprising of Codex Space Marines) is another historic superpower who we've been slugging it out with over the past two ETLs. Their resources are vast but with an older Codex they could struggle. However, many have a point to prove and that includes the Black Templars who will not only want revenge for Blood & Zeal but will want to show they are still a force to be reckoned with. Dangerous – even moreso if they are reinforced by the Deathwatch and Grey Knights fora. We are against them for the solo titles but join with them for ETL Magister Space Wolves shocked everyone with their run during ETL V. However, this could well have been their so called “miracle run” (coined by our run in ETL IV) and the pressure is on for them to keep it going. Couple that with a lack of Codex and it will be hard for them but we should not write them off as to do so is perilous at best: certainly they will be the ones knocking out the super vows rather than the tiny ones. We are against them for the solo titles but join with them for ETL Magister Xenos (comprising of the Eldar factions, Necrons, Orks, and Tau) are the new kids on the block and an unknown quandary. What is certain is that they will be taking members from established Factions meaning many of us will be dripped dry of the talent we need. Don't fret if your friend is a secret xenos worshiper, for this is your time to shine and push us to glory! Team Xenos for ETL Magister but split into their four parent fora for the other two titles The ETL VI Captain Semper has already hinted that basic rules will be the same as the previous years (albeit with an added xenos threat), however, he wont be drawn on which of the two historic start dates he is set to use. This means that we can assume the following: Challenge window 01/05/18 - 01/08/18. Regardless of when the date is, the first vow must be made within one calendar month of the start date Maximum vows to be five, maximum of 20,000 points per Frater for event; A new one can be made once you have completed the previous one. Any uncompleted vows nullify your entire points haul All models to be a legal Codex entry and WYSIWYG Two images - an unpainted/primed one and a completed one - are all the evidence you need (although more and participation is encouraged). These will need to be posted in the Stratagem thread when it goes live New for ETL VI! - Three titles: Primus Inter Pares: the Forum with the highest score WITHIN its Faction - Favourites Dominus Exercitus: the Forum with the highest score AMONG ALL Factions (similar but not 100% like the Primus Inter Pares of old) - Dark horse ETL VI Magister: the Faction with the highest score among all Factions - Dark horse What Can I Do? Basically, we have between 3 and 5 weeks to get ready. Use this time to plan your vow(s) into manageable chunks and then get them finished modelling-wise and undercoated. For example, paint all your red models as one vow, your black models as another, vehicles as one, etc If you are magnetising, vow the expensive choice! Also, things like hunter-killer missiles count as they are WYSIWYG so add them to your vehicles even if it's via blu-tac! Remember that the level of completion is what you are comfortable with. For example, my gaming group requires a minimum of three base colours and for the model to be based in order for it to be considered battle ready. That's as far as I'll be going, though I may throw in some detail if needed (seriously - I can shade, and highlight when I have more time) Imperial Knights, Forge World Knights and Titans will again be likely candidates for our vows Assassins, Deathwatch, Legion of the Damned and units available through stand alone Formations (i.e. Stormtalons from the Adeptus Astartes Stormwing) are not permitted due to either having their own sub-forum on here or being part of another ETL-Faction's Codex Relevant BA units from the GWs Indices, FWs Indices and BA-legal experimental FW units are permitted. For points, you will need to use the most up-to-date source Participate! Check our stratagem thread regularly, join in the with banter, check other threads for inspiration; ask, and be absorbed by the event. The ETL grafts together the whole website in one voice and with one goal and as with any online community, you get out of it what you put into it. In short, take up your paint brush and take up the challenge laid down by the PCA forum to bring honour to our Faction. We are the sons of Sanguinius; it's time to once again make our father proud. Death Company and Feast of Blades Following the ETL in September is the From Rage to Salvation event. As is our way, those who fail their ETL vows (and thus gain the Oathbreaker vow) will form the Death Company. During the RTS they will have a final chance to complete their vow before the year is out and gain salvation by casting aside their Oathbreaker vow early. Feast of Blades will run for many of our HQs painted during the ETL and given the amount mustered during B&Z many of us should have a suitable choice. If you're interested, follow the above link and make sure your vow is completed! Tags /equip modhat The correct use of tags can be found here. Basically, this is a method of making things easier to search to people can gain fast, easy access to your work and that of others. The official ETL tags are: E Tenebrae Lux E Tenebrae Lux VI ETL ETL VI ... in addition to all the usual things like Blood Angels WIP, and so on. If we can remember to add these to our work then that would be great.
  8. Greetings Unforgiven. We are about to embark on a Crusade against our brothers and sisters (and some traitors/xeno's) of the B&C-forums. The E Tenebrae Lux is upon us and we require the full strength of the Legion to achieve victory. Will you stand by the side of your Brothers or will you allow our adversaries to walk over us? The biggest annual painting event, E Tenebrae Lux, is about to start in a couple of weeks. You can find more information about the event itself in this thread. If you have units that have been begging for a layer of paint for some while, this event might be just the thing for you The ETL is a special event for us Dark Angels. Captain Semper, our greatest Commander, is the architect of this wonderfull event that originated from this part of the forum. We managed to achieve victory during ETL II, while the last two editions were less in our favour. In both ETL IV and ETL V Chaos managed to win the events while the Dark Angels placed 6th out of 7 factions. I say it's time to rise up from the depths where we are right now and claim back our rightful place in the rankings. The hobby isn't just about painting, but about assembling the actual models itself as well. Assembly of the models aren't relevant during the ETL, only the painting. A model is eligible for vowing when it's still on unpainted on sprue, assembled & primed or anything in between these two states. We can start preparing for the fight by making sure we lose as little time as possible during the event itself. We can do this by my preparing our vows NOW. So open those untouched boxes, snip of the pieces from the sprue and start glueing. The goal of this thread is to motivate you to have an actual force ready before the start of the event, even though it will be a grey plastic/ primed army. If we can start this event by just painting units/models and not waste time building them, we'll have a huge advantage. Unclog those bottles of glue and sharpen your hobby knives ladies and gents, we're about to start our Crusade. So post below all your preparations for the ETL. Your plans, your conversions and all of your assembled models. Flood the thread with our future reinforcements! If a mod has additional/better information or a better gift with the word, feel free to hijack my initial post.
  9. It is not our technology that will enable us to prevail in this galaxy. It is our shared sense of honour and commonality of cause that unites us and will give us the power to defeat our enemies. For those who don’t know what the ETL is, it’s an annual painting event where participants are invited to vow to paint 40k-legal units of their preferred army in a period of three months, recording their points’ values. Participants may make up to 5 such vows with a limit of 3,000 pts per vow – but no limit to the amount of units pledged. Apart from the individual challenge of completing the pledged units, each forum is competing as a team against every other forum of the B&C by adding up the points of each individual participant’s entries to work out the total score for the entire forum. The forum with the highest score wins. But be aware: if you fail to complete your second or any subsequent vow then all previous vows are nullified and will not count towards the total of the forum! And there is another catch: the total points of each forum are modified by the completion rate i.e. the total completed points over the total points pledged. So failing to complete subsequent vows (thus nullifying all your previously completed ones) has an augmented negative effect on the completion rate and hence on the forum score. So be extra confident when you up the stakes. This is of course a very brief description of the event. For more details you may take a look at the previous ETL here (ETL V), but also expect some additional changes for this year’s event! The expected time to launch is in early or mid May. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Aur'ocy shath'r'i tskan sha Tau'va. Soldiers of the Fire Caste!

This will be the first time that the might of the T'au Empire will be mobilised to enter the ETL for The Greater Good and the Ethereals expect all Shas, Por, Kor and Fio caste members to acquit themselves well in the coming storm. It is the time for our young Empire to show these upstart races the strength of our mighty Her’ex’vre - the Kor'vattra will darken their skies with Sun Sharks, Razorsharks, Barracudas and Tiger Sharks - shoals of Hammerheads, Skyrays and Piranhas will rent their puny vehicles - Devilfish will carry our brave Shas towards the foe ably supported by our Kroot and Vespid allies and the heavy footfalls of our mighty Ta'unar will turn their bones to jelly in fear. Participants vowing for the T'au Empire will be able to draw units from the Codex and Forge World units so let’s take this opportunity to organize ourselves, measure our strength and see what everyone plans to pledge. We have a great range of miniatures, an updated 8th Edition Codex and the flexibility of a young and vibrant race! Remember, the miniatures may be assembled and undercoated – but not otherwise worked on at the time of vowing them! It is but a Kai'rotaa in the future - be ready! When the Ethereal call... who will answer?
  10. BROTHERS PREPARE, ETL VI WILL SOON BE UPON US! For those who don’t know what the ETL is, it’s an annual painting event where participants are invited to vow to paint 40k-legal units of their preferred army in a period of three months, recording their points’ values. Participants may make up to 5 such vows with a limit of 3,000 pts per vow – but no limit to the amount of units pledged. Apart from the individual challenge of completing the pledged units, each forum is competing as a team against every other forum of the B&C by adding up the points of each individual participant’s entries to work out the total score for the entire forum. The forum with the highest score wins. But be aware: if you fail to complete your second or any subsequent vow then all previous vows are nullified and will not count towards the total of the forum! And there is another catch: the total points of each forum are modified by the completion rate i.e. the total completed points over the total points pledged. So failing to complete subsequent vows (thus nullifying all your previously completed ones) has an augmented negative effect on the completion rate and hence on the forum score. So be extra confident when you up the stakes. This is of course a very brief description of the event. For more details you may take a look at the previous ETL here (ETL V), but also expect some additional changes for this year’s event! The expected time to launch is in early or mid May. Feel free to ask any questions! ------------------------------------------------------------------ The ETL has a special resonance with the Dark Angels as it originated as a challenge of the Dark Angels Forum against all the forums of the B&C in the wake of the popular, but now extinct, Librarius Painting Challenge (LPC) which was the previous inter–forum B&C event. The Dark Angels not only won the last two LPCs but also managed to win ETL II – a much greater event in scale and scope. Participants vowing for the Dark Angels will be able to draw units from our Codex and Forge World units compatible with the Dark Angels so let’s take this opportunity to organize ourselves, measure our strength and see what everyone plans to pledge. We have a great range of miniatures, an updated 8th Edition Codex and the single-mindedness of the Sons of the Lion! Remember, the miniatures may be assembled and undercoated – but not otherwise worked on at the time of vowing them! So who’s going to take up the challenge? And what do you guys plan to paint in the service of the Lion? THE INNER CIRCLE EXPECTS THAT EVERY MAN WILL DO HIS DUTY!
  11. Update: April 29th, 2018 Semper has posted the rules. Check them out! Update: April 23rd, 2018 Updates over Oi, listen up, ya gits! Coming up soon is the 6th E Tenebrae Lux event, an annual Bolter and Chainsword army painting challenge! And of course, with the introduction of Xenos to the B&C, this is the first one where we Orks can show who’s best. It’s us. Cause we Orks. What’s ETL? From the host of the event: So what? So this is our chance to show that the Ork community on the Bolter and Chainsword may be small, but we’re passionate! From what Semper has said, all the Xenos forums will be one team. And I don’t know about you gits, but I ain’t going to let some pointy-eared panzees, toothy bugs, or metallic tin ‘eads show us up. Orks always pull their own weight! Personally, I have never participated in an ETL, despite having been a member for the entire time they’ve been run. But I am excited for this opportunity, which happens to fall on the exact right time for Orks. Seems likely that our Codex will probably land right in the middle of the event, providing ample opportunity and motivation at the best possible time! But our WAAAGH!!! is more like a wagh Yes, we’re a small community in the B&C. Yes, we cannot expect to compete with the established forums. But much like a WAAAGH!!! grows exponentially as more and more Orks flood to it, this is a chance for us to establish our community on these boards. Furthermore, the ETL factors completion percentage into the final score, so if we and the other Xenos manage to complete most or all of what we vow, there is always a possibility. More likely, we can just show up a forum that has been here longer. After all, an Ork never loses. Ok, what can we do? ETL works on making a vow, and completing it before the end date. You can check out this link to the previous ETL to get a much more in depth look at what you can expect. With permission, I’m plagiarizing some of the Blood Angels’ post, relying on Jolemai’s experience to make up for my complete lack of: I’m going to focus on smaller vows, nowhere near that 3000 point mark. I think shooting for a high completion rate would show the rest of the board the Ork players are for real, and to that end, I’d encourage making manageable vows. You can always make additional vows (up to 5 total) if you find that the spirit of the competition has inspired you like an Imperator titan inspires a Mek. In addition, I’ve included some more of Jolemai’s wisdom: We can do this! Start prepping those models, planning the vows, and get talking. Let’s build up our little community and showcase why Ork players are the best. As Ghazghkull said: “We iz gonna do this coz’ we’re Orks an’ we was made ta fight an’ win!”
  12. The ETL is back after a year of hiatus. It will start on May 1st and will last until Aug 1st. Apart from being tuned to 8th Edition rules and Codices, this ETL will be the first time that Xenos will be participating. And in the case of Tyranids that will also include Genestealer Cults. For more details you can check this thread here: http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/345917-its-been-a-long-time/ Feel free to ask any questions you might have either here or in the linked thread above. :)
  13. The Chapel was shrouded in darkness, save by the candles lit to mark the passing of fallen Sistren. Hundreds, thousands even, lined up evenly at the front, flickering and guttering by a slight breeze from the draught made by the doors opening. Canoness Saffron Sera of the Order of the Dauntless Spirit did not turn around. Many footsteps echoed as they approached and she knew no fear. The newcomers waited in silence as she finished her ministrations to both Him on Earth and to Saint Lucia, the Saint of the Order. As she stood, she addressed her guests. "Sisters. I bid you welcome." Turning, she saw a number of Canonesses from other Orders, from both the Convent Sanctorum and the Convent Prioris. A multitude of liveries, colours and Heraldries. Her heart both swelled in awe of the sight, and felt heavy with the news they had all heard recently. "It has been confirmed?" A Canoness from the Valorous Heart nodded. "Yes. It has been verified thrice. The ritual draws near once again." The ritual. The Sisterhood was found wanting last time. A valiant effort, but ultimately for naught. Still, she could feel in her bones that circumstances would change for the Sisterhood. Whilst they would fight well again this year, next year had much better prospects... Welcome to ETL VI! As many will know, within a week or so, the boards infamous painting challenge will begin! This year will be quite different in some respects, due to Xenos being allowed on the forums! That said, whilst we are a smaller group, we can still make waves by making sure any and all vows made are completed 100% and be recognised for such a feat. All Canonesses report for duty! ^_^
  14. Hail, brothers and sisters of the long war! As the followers of the corpse emperor draw closer, we shall muster and unify our forces. This year’s ETL VI is more competitive than ever, as the history-loving fools and the followers of the corpse emperor are putting in a significant effort. Yet, as we bask in the eternity of chaos, we shall laugh in the face of their futile efforts. We shall show these upstarts who the real Primes Inter Pares are: All chaos players of the CSM, Daemons, and Heretics chaos forums of the ETL VI are hereby called upon to muster their forces and VOW THEIR SOUL TO CHAOS. Come forth, legionnaires and renegades, murderers and sycophants, worshipers and dilettantes! Answer our call to fire up your forges, collect your miniatures, wet your brushes, and start painting! The Soul Vow is a satellite event of the ETL VI, aimed at doubling, tripling, quadrupling, or even quintupling the points of your first ETL VI vow. There is no limit to the amount of times you want to multiply your points. SOUL VOW FORMAT Those who wish to participate must post their Soul Vow in this thread in the following format, and before they make their second vow in the strategium (excepting those who have already re-vowed before the start of this satellite event). The aim is to double, triple, quadruple, or even quintuple the amount of your first vow's points in the entire ETL. Suppose your first vow in the ETL was 1000 points and you vow to double that amount in this event, then when the ETL closes you must have finished a total of 1000x2=2000 points in the entire ETL. So your first vow's points count to the total amount. As the vow limit in the ETL is always five, you have four vows to make this multiplication. In the example here, you can complete a second vow of 200 points, a third of 500, and a fourth of 300 points, after which you have fulfilled your Soul Vow of doubling your first vow's 1000 points. Please post your Soul Vow in this event, using the following format: “I, [name], vow my soul to chaos and swear to [double / triple / quadruple / quintuple/etc.) my first ETL VI vow, amounting to at least [X] times [points cost of first vow] points total completed on or before August 1st, 2018. Should I fail the forces of chaos and not complete my sworn points, I shall bear the Badge of Failure until the year-end.” COMPLETIONS As this is an ETL VI satellite event, the ETL is leading in terms of completions. Only those completions counted in the OP of your relevant Chaos Forum will be counted here. So please make sure that your completions are recorded on time. If yours haven't been recorded, please contact Captain Semper, the ETL VI event organizer. PREVIOUS BLACK CRUSADES Black Crusade I Black Crusade II Black Crusadie III REWARDS Naturally, there’s a banner* and/or medallion* for those participating, and there will be medallions with pips for those who complete their SOUL VOW! **Just as a quick reminder to all to keep an eye on the amount of image space used in your signature. The limit it 999pixels x 100pixels. Just so you can gauge it better, the sizes used on the graphics here are: Banner= 300x100 Square= 100x100 Medallion= 33x100 You can also add images to your 'about me' page in your profile. This is a great way to display your hard work in forum events like this one and the upcoming E Tenebrae Lux. FAQ: Q: If I make a soul vow, do I have to fulfill the doubling/tripling/etc. in one single vow or can I use as many as I want? A: You can use as many vows (up to four) as you want to fulfill your soul vow. Suppose your first vow was 1500 points, and your Soul Vow is to double that amount in the ETL, you can use up to four vows to fulfill your Soul Vow - for example Vow 2: 600 points, Vow 3: 200 points, Vow 4: 400 points, and Vow 5: 300 points. How you fulfil your Soul Vow is up to you - but remember: completion of your latest ETL vow is most important. Q: Can you explain what you mean by 'multiplying your ETL VI vow' by using the standard example of doubling? A: If you double your original ETL VI vow, your total ETL VI points should reach at least twice your original vow's points. So suppose your original vow is worth 1500 points, the total amount of your completed ETL VI points should be at least 3000.

  15. Hello everyone, This is my ETL VI thread to toss in various pics and musing as I work through my vows. To start, here is my first vow and progress picture: Progress 1: Now currently I am working on the second half of this squad. In between what painting I can get in, I have been trying to update my transfer game a bit. So as a test I bought some Liquitex Gloss medium and did a 3:1 mix of gloss to water. Using Saint Duncans method of gloss coat, transfer then matte coat I set up a test figure to verify if that method will work for me. Once done, I then did some foam to stipple some layer red on the figure to nice effect. Here is my test mini: I think it works and so my next step is to use this method as often as I can. The trick for me is to be patient which is REAL difficult for me to master as the closer I get to finishing, the more I tend to power through all the detail work and stuff. Anyway, currently my eyes were dilated so no painting today for me. I should be better tomorrow and be able to get through some more of the second half of the squad. Need to start putting base color besides red (blacks, tabards/scrolls, silvers etc.) on them.After that, I can start working on detail work and the like.
  16. Within the dark days of the Horus Heresy, not everyone fought in the fires of a battlefield. Malcador the Sigilite, second only to the Emperor Himself, waged his own battles within the shadows and darkness surrounding the nascent Imperium. Agents and assassins, outcasts and renegades, all played a part within his schemes. To him, each were a piece of a puzzle, whether they knew it or not. His goal? To secure humanity's’ survival, no matter the cost. While the Emperor worked to preserve the Imperium and stop the Warmaster, the Sigilite was the contingency, thinking of the impossible and trying to preserve what could be lost if the Warmaster won. Did he succeed? In a sense, he did.To this day, humanity still lives on the edge of a knife, it’s enemies ready to pounce. Yet it still lives, his marks unseen by the common eye yet still felt. Did his schemes end with his death? For some, the Silent War died with him, never to be spoken of again. The Truth? It never stopped. In fact, his schemes have only multiplied, replicated and multiplied by his successors. Malcador himself was only a larger piece on the board of the galaxy. Here lies the tales of his successors and is rivals. Here lies the Silent Wars. Well, it took me longer than I thought it was gonna take but here I am. I've been meaning to get a WIP log up but due to real life I've been a bit occupied and have really had the time to get much hobby time. With the ETL VI popping up though I've decided to try and get some models pumped out for that. Right now I'm focusing on some Primaris marines in the colours of the Alpha Legion though once I get them done I'll post up a bit of fluff for the unit. So far I've got a 5 man squad of Hellblasters in the works along with a Captain I've converted from the Dark Angels Lieutenant model that you can see below: As you might be able to tell from the back photo, I do also have a Leviathan which I bought a while back. Honestly I just really like the look of it, simple as. Here's a better picture of it right here: I'll most likely leave it until nearer the end of the ETL, I don't know if it's viable since I already started putting on the blue before the event started but we'll just wait and see. Lastly, before I wrap up this post, I do have two Deathwatch members who I've been painting up for a campaign one of my friends is running inspired by the Deathwatch campaigns done by Miniwargaming. Hopefully the campaign will start up soon but I've still got some time to finish the models up: First one is your normal avergae kill team member, a Red Hunter. I've always had a small interest in these guys so I might end up doing more of them later down the road. Second is a Red Scorpion apothecary taken from the Mark iV forgeworld set. I've really liked the model and to get him tied into the Deathwatch a bit more I replaced part of his right arm with the wrist-mounted comns panel thing the Deathwatch tend to have. Both are still WIP but it's mostly just tweeks here and there to sort them out along with the bases. In any case, I hope you've enjoyed seeing the start of my road down ETL. Any C&C is welcome, after all I can't improve my skills if I don't get any feedback. Thanks for reading :)
  17. Here is my vow for ETL this year: They are currently in the process of being primed right now, so I'll crack on painting ASAP!
  18. So it's that time of the year again.... Here are my 'before' shots from today, as I got the staff from my local GW to prime and spray them in Caliban Green (except the Reivers and characters, who have been kept in black for the moment) Intercessor Squad 1: Hellblaster Squad 1: Reiver Squad 1: Reiver Squad 2: Aggressor Squad 1: Ancient, Chaplain and first Lieutenant: Second Lieutenant: I'm actually really impressed with how this guy turned out. I knew I wanted to include the robotic arm from the Hellblaster set, but the secondary pistol arm was initially going to be a quick swap out of the standard plasma pistol on the arm from this character for a bolt pistol, but it looked a bit same-y to the other lieutenant. The only other Primaris bolt pistol arm I had to hand was the one from the Intercessor squad, and despite it also being held out straight it actually looks quite good (in my eyes at least). Plus the sword hung at the back just felt really cool to do - makes him feel a bit like a Primaris Cypher... It took a little longer to get all my models sprayed than I was originally planning, so I only really did a little work before I had to pack everything up. I decided on going with the Aggressors to begin with as it's a small squad size, and I just felt like starting with them. I'm going to give the entire range of models a bronze trim to the shoulder pads to give the models a bit more colour and also to keep them united. Aggressor Squad 1 - WIP 03/05/2018:
  19. I started a Brazen Claws project not long ago. I already have a WIP thread in the Forge but I would like this thread to have fluff and tactics as well as painting in it. First off, test model: (Missing the freehand symbols, which will be done later, and varnishing, ditto.) This afternoon I made my first vow for the ETL. All the models will be painted as Brazen Claws. Hopefully this will be the first of many vows as I have over 4000 points of unpainted Space Marine stuff at the moment... Fluff-wise, most of this army will be "sourced" from the 2nd Company, with some auxiliary forces from various other Companies. I didn't really like the idea of using the chest eagle to show company colours, as is mentioned in the Chapter's official fluff, so I've gone with coloured shoulder pad trims. Thanks for looking and, as always, all comments are welcome!
