  9. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/med_gallery_62972_10568_113192.jpg In order to keep the Black Rage in check, on the eve of battle the Blood Angels bend their thoughts to prayer and to the sacrifice of their Primarch so many centuries ago. Chaplains move from Frater to Frater, blessing each in turn and noting those amongst the brotherhood whose eyes may appear a little glazed, or whose speech is slurred or over excited. Some, almost all, overcome the ancient intrusion into their minds. Much of the Frater’s training is directed at controlling it, beating it down into the depths of their being, but for some the imprint of Sanguinius is too strong, the memories too loud and demanding. As the Captain Semper dictates the E Tenebrae Lux, - the Bolter and Chainsword’s very own Mass of Doom - the chosen ones fall into the arms of their priests, and are taken away to form the Death Company. To join the Death Company is to consign oneself to destruction. These Frater seek only to atone for their failure; a last chance at salvation is far preferable to the slow slide into blood-madness. Their avatar is repainted black, and decorated with red saltires that symbolise Sanguinius’ wounds at the Arch Procrastinator’s hands. Honour scrolls are affixed to their signatures, commemorations of their actions in life and affirmations of their worth, even in these dark times. It is to the Chaplains that the task of leading these lost souls normally falls, for their zeal can cut through the madness of their Death Company brethren and help shepherd them toward the foe. However, strong-willed Blood Angels heroes, and even the gold-armoured Moderators, have demonstrated the ability to direct these fallen warriors into the fight. It is the duty of these individuals to ensure that their comrades’ tragic sacrifice counts for all that it possibly can. After all, every Blood Angel who succumbs is a heroic protector of Humanity, and has more than earned the opportunity to attain peace. Furthermore, the Death Company can be a fearsome and tide-turning weapon if properly deployed. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_822138.png Honourary Neophytes However, the Death Company never take to the field alone... The rage within the Bolter & Chainsword Death Company threatens to consume them entirely. It is only through our assistance and guidance that they can overcome it, something that together we can all achieve. Put your Faction to one side and take to the field with these lost souls, help them cast aside their rage and reclaim their honour; help them finally gain their salvation. From Rage to Salvation is the annual, casual painting event in the Blood Angels sub-forum with the focus on encouraging the Frater to finish those half-complete units in our collections, or to paint up something new to add to them. This year we support the B&C Death Company (those BA players who failed previous B&C painting events such as the ETL) in helping them to finally complete their vow(s) with encouragement, support and vowing of half-completed stuff alongside. Perhaps you've still got that copy of Space Hulk which you haven't started, or the models from Shield of Baal: Deathstorm that need some work. Perhaps you've got some unfinished Blood Angels gather dust that could do with being completed. Why not become an honourary Neophyte and lend your assistance? To enter, all you need is something legally available to Faction: Blood Angels or Legion Astartes: Blood Angels and paint it up (or continue painting it up) before 30th November 2018. Should you achieve this, there is an award lying in wait. For more information, either follow the link above or drop me a PM; we're certainly happy to have you should you be interested. Looking forward to seeing more 40k and 30k stuff soon! [clearfloat][/clearfloat]
  10. +++ FROM RAGE TO SALVATION+++ http://i977.photobucket.com/albums/ae257/Pendragi/40k%20art/Blood_Angel_Librarian.jpg OVERVIEW Welcome to "From Rage to Salvation" the Blood Angels's painting event! We all have that half complete army, the squad you always wanted to expand, the Death Company jump squad that was left half-done. The Librarium Painting Competition and the E Tenebrae Lux built on that with competitive incentives by challenging the other forums. There are many who did not participate, other’s who failed their vows and even more did not vow as much as they had hoped to. The "From Rage To Salvation" will provide us with a incentive to complete our half done projects. This is simple, low level event that I hope will allow us to complete our old projects and start new ones at a time when the Blood Angels needs both enthusiasm and loyalty. RULES Duration: 3 months from September 1st to November 30th, 2013. Participants can join at any time during the life of the event. Entry requirements: As this is a Blood Angels event, participants must pledge Blood Angels (or Successors) units from any system covered by B&C. So 40k, Forge World (Horus Heresy & Imperial Armour lists), Epic, BFG are all welcome! Models can be at any state of completion when entered, from completely unpainted to almost done! Re-vowing: If participants have achieved their target before the end of the 3-month period they can pledge again. AWARDS: If participants have achieved their target before the end of the 3-month period they can pledge again. If at the end of the 3-month period they have completed ALL their pledges they'll get the IRATUS DOMINUS badge. If not they have failed Sanguinius and may carry the badge of CARCERES IRA! Behold and feast your eyes on the: IRATUS DOMINUS http://i977.photobucket.com/albums/ae257/Pendragi/40k%20art/gallery_52275_4552_20046.png And the: CARCERES IRA http://i977.photobucket.com/albums/ae257/Pendragi/40k%20art/gallery_52275_4552_22336.png The award is won, and may be carried, when completing a vow but lost if any vow's are incomplete by the end of November.

The rage within us is the Blood Angels' darkest secret and greatest curse, but it is also their greatest salvation, for it brings with it a humility and understanding of their own failings which make the Blood Angels the most truly noble of the Frater Domus. Take to the field with these lost souls, help them cast aside their rage and reclaim their honour, help them finally gain their salvation. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Welcome to the event Welcome to the fifth incarnation of "From Rage to Salvation" the Blood Angels sub-forum’s painting event!

We all have that half complete army, the squad you always wanted to expand; the Death Company jump squad that was left half-done. The Librarium Painting Competition and the E Tenebrae Lux built on that with competitive incentives for painting new additions by challenging the other forums. However, there are those who did not participate, those who failed their vows, and those who did not vow as much as they had hoped to. The "From Rage to Salvation" event will provide us with an incentive to complete these half done projects and to keep the inherent artisan flame inside us burning for longer. In its simplest form, this is a casual event that will allow us to complete our old projects and/or begin afresh in a stress-free setting, all at a time when the Blood Angels need both enthusiasm and loyalty from Frater new and old alike. For those new to the event, welcome! Should you be interested, the servitor-thralls have unlocked transcript logs of the first and second event and these can be found here and here respectively. To our veteran participants, welcome back! http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Spirit of the RTS Just like the ETL, there is a set of unwritten rules for self-regulation amongst the Frater. Like any painting competition on the B&C, they exist to help you all to improve your technique and the standard of your painting, be it asking and giving advice and generally improving your painting regardless of your skill level. Bear in mind that one shouldn’t compromise their skill level during this competition - it’s better to do a smaller vow painted to the best of your ability than a large sub-par job (according to your own personal standards of which you are the only judge). A good example of that is basing. The fact that doing bases is not compulsory for a Primary Vow in the RTS is for the benefit of those who do not yet posses the skill of doing proper basing or have yet to decide on what scheme they wish to use. If, however, you do posses the skill and you will not consider the model complete unless you base it then it is expected that you do base it. In short, this event aims to help you achieve something you can be proud of. Something you can say that the RTS helped you complete and quality over quantity will always be preferred. In addition to completing those half done jobs, the purpose of the RTS is also give the opportunity to people to paint their minis how they like them, not necessarily according to GW doctrine- it’s all about creativity and imagination. As such, it is possible to see some unorthodox painting/modelling - such as World Eaters Legion Rampager Squad suitably converted to Flesh Tearers Death Company or Stormcast Eternals as Hammenators/BA Daemons (see below). All these are totally welcome and well in the spirit of the event. However, if people are using the count-as to just paint totally unsuitable models (using Space Marines Tacticals to represent Blood Angels Tacticals for example) then this works against the principle of the RTS. After all, the RTS is all about faction loyalty to that of the Blood Angels. Another point (that is actually part of the official rules) is that it is expected that you start work on your entries after you submitted your vows and not before. Similarly, one should not mock the competition by entering (for example) a Tactical Squad needing only their eye sockets painted as a Primary Vow, and so on. Lastly, the RTS is an opportunity to paint your army while having fun interacting with other Frater within the BA community. There is an element of friendly competition – which is intended and welcome; friendly banter is not only tolerated, but anticipated. That said, this is still intended as light-hearted fun. Please keep that in mind in your exchanges and also that there may be a language barrier or that people can be on a different wavelength. Make sure you use appropriate tone and don’t forget the smileys – they go a long way to give context and remember, B&C rules always take precedence so play nice. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Rules for the RTS Below are the rules which govern From Rage to Salvation 2016: Duration Just under three months from September 15th to November 30th, 2016. Participants can join at any time during the lifetime of the event. Entry requirements As this is a Blood Angels event, participants must pledge anything relevant to our Faction from any system covered by B&C, chosen from the “Primary Vows” list below. You may pledge as many of these as you wish. Additionally, you may choose something off the “Secondary Vows” list to work on alongside your Primary Vow. You may pledge as many of these as you wish and both this and the Primary Vow must be finished for your vow to be deemed complete. Finally, Secondary Vows can be added at a later date once cleared with me by PM but can't be made without a Primary Vow Models can be at any state of completion when entered, from completely unpainted to almost done! Each vow must be finished before another one is made A vow is registered by declaring your vow and posting a starting picture. It is declared complete when you post a completion picture A vow is made using the following template: Primary Vows Primary Vows are any unit that can legally be chosen to represent a Blood Angels force in the 40k universe at the time of writing: Any legal unit from Faction: Adeptus Astartes Blood Angels Any legal unit from Faction: Legion Astartes Blood Angels Any legal unit from Battlefleet Gothic pledged to the Blood Angels (or her Successors) Any legal unit from Epic 4000 pledged to the Blood angels (or her Successors) Anything from the following list: Cypher Any Cerastus-pattern Knight BA-themed Fortification Any Imperial Titan Marauder Bomber/Destroyer Secondary Vows A Secondary Vow represents all the little extra things that go along with our collections. Things such as pintle weapon choices, magnetisation choices, single Tactical Marines, and so on go here. These can be added at a later date should you wish, but they will need to be cleared with me first via PM. Any unit/model upgrade for those in the Primary Vow category Any extra/alternative weapons for those in the Primary Vow category Artwork for those in the Primary Vow category Fluff for those in the Primary Vow category Bases and/or transfers for those in the Primary Vow category Daemons – only a legal unit of those that can be summoned via Malefic Daemonology Anything from the following list: Any Imperial Knight from Codex: Imperial Knights, Gerantius, or the Obsidian Knight Any Assassin from Codex: Assassins Any Inquisitor from Codex: Inquisition http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_109145.jpg Death Company Death Company As is customary with the ETL, those who fail their vows bear the badge of the Oathbreaker. To tie in the RTS with the ETL, this year the Oathbreakers have been inducted into the Death Company whereby they will receive their own special mission:To fully complete their ETL vows thereby casting aside their rage and attaining salvation Those admitted to the Death Company ranks have been automatically entered into this event. Ideally, they should be carrying the BA Oathbreaker badge in their signatures from the ETL event: http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/gallery_62972_10568_73818.jpg Should they complete their vow and attain salvation during (or even before) the event, they are encouraged to pledge something else. Should they fail, damnation and a fate with Astorath awaits... Re-vowing If participants have achieved their target before the end of the three month period they can pledge again. There is no upper limit on vows but any failure will nullify all previous completions. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Awards If participants have achieved their target before the end of the three month period they can pledge again. If at the end of the 3-month period they have completed ALL their pledges they'll get the IRATUS DOMINUS badge. If not they have failed Sanguinius and may carry the badge of CARCERES IRA! Behold and feast your eyes on the: IRATUS DOMINUS http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/gallery_62972_10568_26224.jpg And the: CARCERES IRA http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/gallery_62972_10568_20441.jpg The award is won, and may be carried, when completing a vow but lost if any vow's are incomplete by the end of November. As for the Death Company, if Salvation is attained there may be a secret award lying in wait... Who will shine the most in this display of loyalty to our Primarch and Legion? http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg FAQs Q: How incomplete can something be for a valid entry? A: The rules state that something can be entered from unpainted to almost complete, however, as per the spirit of the RTS paragraph, you should vow something that will earn you the Iratus Dominus award. For example, a Tactical Marine Squad that requires only its eye sockets painted green isn’t a suitable Primary Vow. If in doubt, send me a PM. Examples: Suitable vow: Unsuitable vow: Q: Why is the Imperial Knight a Secondary Vow when the Cerastus Knight is a Primary Vow? They are the same Faction choice. A: Quite correct, they are both Faction: Imperial Knights. However, at the time of writing the Cerastus-Knight Acheron/Atropos/Castigator/Lancer and the Questoris Knight Magaera may be chosen as a LoW choice for a Blood Angels force using a Combined Arms Detachment, whereas the Imperial Knights do not. Q: Given that we can use any Formations we want in our army, with the only restriction being how they interact with our other Detachments/Formations, are Formations permitted for the RTS and if so, what Faction may they be? A: As this is an event with a BA focus, the only Formations allowed are those with Faction: Blood Angels. Q: Why are Allies not allowed within the RTS when there are non-BA choices to choose from? A: Allies are not a valid choice for the RTS as this is a BA event. However, there are exceptions. The Primary Vow exceptions are those which can be fielded within a BA-specific Force Organisation Chart. The Secondary Vow exceptions are those which often appear as singular units alongside BA forces and ones which many Frater have in their collections but are considered illegal to paint for the ETL. Q: Why have I been entered into this event without my knowledge? A: If you have been automatically entered into this event it is because you failed your ETL vow. Please note that there have been notifications of a challenge for those who failed since the last month of the ETL. Basically, it gives you an extra four months (1 in the gap between ETL and RTS, and 3 for the RTS event) to complete your vow. Please don’t be offended, we’re all eager to see your vow completed! Q: What do you mean by a BA-themed Fortification? A: Basically, we don't want any old Fortification entered. As this is a BA event, and Fortification needs to be suitably identified/claimed by the Blood Angels. This could be simple as adding transfers to the walls, to a full Baal-flavoured scratchbuilt Bastion. The limits are simply your imagination. Q: What does a sample vow look like? A: Vows can be a combination of things: you could choose one or more from the Primary Vow list, or a selection of choices from the Primary and Secondary Vow list. For example, a vow could be: Tactical Squad Tactical Squad and Bolterback Tactical Squad, transfers for three Tactical Squads, and all three new FW pintle-weapons for a Cerberus. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Acknowledgments Many thanks to Taranis for inventing the From Rage to Salvation event for for his blessing as we continue it in his absence. Thanks to the Moderation Team for their blessing regarding the event's revival and for their assistance. Thanks to Charlo and Herald of Sanguinius for their work on the signature awards ...and finally thanks to the B&C and the B&C Frater for being here and thereby having an interest in such things. Hope you all enjoy the event! http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Vows The Angelic Host What follows are the vows of the Angelic Host. These follow the vow format for non-Death Company Frater and will be separated out into Primary and Secondary Vows where appropriate. The Lost What follows are the vows of The Lost. Note that as they are charged with completing their ETL vows before making any further vows, their vows are slightly different from those who are entering the competition and using the RTS format. 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 RTS tags are: Rage to Salvation RTS RTS 16 ... 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.

We all have that half complete army, the squad you always wanted to expand; the Death Company jump squad that was left half-done. The Librarium Painting Competition and the E Tenebrae Lux built on that with competitive incentives for painting new additions by challenging the other forums. However, there are those who did not participate, those who failed their vows, and those who did not vow as much as they had hoped to. The "From Rage to Salvation" event will provide us with an incentive to complete these half done projects and to keep the inherent artisan flame inside us burning for longer. In its simplest form, this is a casual event that will allow us to complete our old projects and/or begin afresh in a stress-free setting, all at a time when the Blood Angels need both enthusiasm and loyalty from Frater new and old alike.For those new to the event, welcome! Should you be interested, the servitor-thralls have unlocked transcript logs of the first event and these can be found here. To our veteran participants, welcome back! http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Spirit of the RTS Just like the ETL, there is a set of unwritten rules for self-regulation amongst the Frater. Like any painting competition on the B&C, they exist to help you all to improve your technique and the standard of your painting, be it asking and giving advice and generally improving your painting regardless of your skill level. Bear in mind that one shouldn’t compromise their skill level during this competition - it’s better to do a smaller vow painted to the best of your ability than a large sub-par job (according to your own personal standards of which you are the only judge). A good example of that is basing. The fact that doing bases is not compulsory for a Primary Vow in the RTS is for the benefit of those who do not yet posses the skill of doing proper basing or have yet to decide on what scheme they wish to use. If, however, you do posses the skill and you will not consider the model complete unless you base it then it is expected that you do base it. In short, this event aims to help you achieve something you can be proud of. Something you can say that the RTS helped you complete and quality over quantity will always be preferred. In addition to completing those half done jobs, the purpose of the RTS is also give the opportunity to people to paint their minis how they like them, not necessarily according to GW doctrine- it’s all about creativity and imagination. As such, it is possible to see some unorthodox painting/modelling - such as World Eaters Legion Rampager Squad suitably converted to Flesh Tearers Death Company or Stormcast Eternals as Hammenators/BA Daemons (see below). All these are totally welcome and well in the spirit of the event. However, if people are using the count-as to just paint totally unsuitable models (using Space Marines Tacticals to represent Blood Angels Tacticals for example) then this works against the principle of the RTS. After all, the RTS is all about faction loyalty to that of the Blood Angels. Another point (that is actually part of the official rules) is that it is expected that you start work on your entries after you submitted your vows and not before. Similarly, one should not mock the competition by entering (for example) a Tactical Squad needing only their eye sockets painted as a Primary Vow, and so on. Lastly, the RTS is an opportunity to paint your army while having fun interacting with other Frater within the BA community. There is an element of friendly competition – which is intended and welcome; friendly banter is not only tolerated, but anticipated. That said, this is still intended as light-hearted fun. Please keep that in mind in your exchanges and also that there may be a language barrier or that people can be on a different wavelength. Make sure you use appropriate tone and don’t forget the smileys – they go a long way to give context and remember, B&C rules always take precedence so play nice. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Rules for the RTS Below are the rules which govern From Rage to Salvation 2015: Duration 3 months from September 1st to November 30th, 2015. Participants can join at any time during the lifetime of the event. Entry requirements As this is a Blood Angels event, participants must pledge anything relevant to our Faction from any system covered by B&C, chosen from the “Primary Vows” list below. You may pledge as many of these as you wish. Additionally, you may choose something off the “Secondary Vows” list to work on alongside your Primary Vow. You may pledge as many of these as you wish and both this and the Primary Vow must be finished for your vow to be deemed complete. Finally, Secondary Vows can be added at a later date once cleared with me by PM. Models can be at any state of completion when entered, from completely unpainted to almost done! Each vow must be finished before another one is made. A vow is registered by declaring your vow and posting a starting picture. It is declared complete when you post a completion picture. A vow is made using the following template: Primary Vows Primary Vows are any unit that can legally be chosen to represent a Blood Angels force in the 40k universe at the time of writing: Any legal unit from Faction: Adeptus Astartes Blood Angels Any legal unit from Faction: Legion Astartes Blood Angels Any legal unit from Battlefleet Gothic pledged to the Blood Angels (or her Successors) Any legal unit from Epic 4000 pledged to the Blood angels (or her Successors) Anything from the following list: Cypher Any Cerastus-pattern Knight Fortification Any Imperial Titan Marauder Bomber/Destroyer Secondary Vows A Secondary Vow represents all the little extra things that go along with our collections. Things such as pintle weapon choices, magnetisation choices, single Tactical Marines, and so on go here. These can be added at a later date should you wish, but they will need to be cleared with me first via PM. Any unit/model upgrade for those in the Primary Vow category Any extra/alternative weapons for those in the Primary Vow category Artwork for those in the Primary Vow category Fluff for those in the Primary Vow category Bases and/or transfers for those in the Primary Vow category Daemons – only a legal unit of those that can be summoned via Malefic Daemonology Anything from the following list: Any Imperial Knight from Codex: Imperial Knights Any Assassin from Codex: Assassins Any Inquisitor from Codex: Inquisition http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_109145.jpg Death Company Death CompanyAs is customary with the ETL, those who fail their vows bear the badge of the Oathbreaker. To tie in the RTS with the ETL, this year the Oathbreakers have been inducted into the Death Company whereby they will receive their own special mission: To fully complete their ETL vows thereby casting aside their rage and attaining salvation Those admitted to the Death Company ranks have been automatically entered into this event. Should they complete their vow and attain salvation during (or even before) the event, they are encouraged to pledge something else. Should they fail, damnation and a fate with Astorath awaits... Re-vowing If participants have achieved their target before the end of the three month period they can pledge again. There is no upper limit on vows but any failure will nullify all previous completions. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Awards If participants have achieved their target before the end of the three month period they can pledge again. If at the end of the 3-month period they have completed ALL their pledges they'll get the IRATUS DOMINUS badge. If not they have failed Sanguinius and may carry the badge of CARCERES IRA! Behold and feast your eyes on the: IRATUS DOMINUS http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/gallery_62972_10568_30745.jpg And the: CARCERES IRA http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/gallery_62972_10568_24083.jpg The award is won, and may be carried, when completing a vow but lost if any vow's are incomplete by the end of November. As for the Death Company, if Salvation is attained there may be a secret award lying in wait... Who will shine the most in this display of loyalty to our Primarch and Legion? http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg FAQs Q: How incomplete can something be for a valid entry? A: The rules state that something can be entered from unpainted to almost complete, however, as per the spirit of the RTS paragraph, you should vow something that will earn you the Iratus Dominus award. For example, a Tactical Marine Squad that requires only its eye sockets painted green isn’t a suitable Primary Vow. If in doubt, send me a PM. Q: Why is the Imperial Knight a Secondary Vow when the Cerastus Knight is a Primary Vow? They are the same Faction choice. A: Quite correct, they are both Faction: Imperial Knights. However, at the time of writing the Cerastus-Knight Acheron/Castigator/Lancer and the Questoris Knight Magaera may be chosen as a LoW choice for a Blood Angels force using a Combined Arms Detachment, whereas the Imperial Knights do not. Q: Given that we can use any Formations we want in our army, with the only restriction being how they interact with our other Detachments/Formations, are Formations permitted for the RTS and if so, what Faction may they be? A: As this is an event with a BA focus, the only Formations allowed are those with Faction: Blood Angels. Q: Why are Allies not allowed within the RTS when there are non-BA choices to choose from? A: Allies are not a valid choice for the RTS as this is a BA event. However, there are exceptions. The Primary Vow exceptions are those which can be fielded within a BA-specific Force Organisation Chart. The Secondary Vow exceptions are those which often appear as singular units alongside BA forces and ones which many Frater have in their collections but are considered illegal to paint for the ETL. Q: Why have I been entered into this event without my knowledge? A: If you have been automatically entered into this event it is because you failed your ETL vow. Please note that there have been notifications of a challenge for those who failed since the last month of the ETL. Basically, it gives you an extra four months (1 in the gap between ETL and RTS, and 3 for the RTS event) to complete your vow. Please don’t be offended, we’re all eager to see your vow completed! Q: What does a sample vow look like? A: Vows can be a combination of things: you could choose one or more from the Primary Vow list, or a selection of choices from the Primary and Secondary Vow list. For example, a vow could be: Tactical Squad Tactical Squad and Bolterback Tactical Squad, transfers for three Tactical Squads, and all three new FW pintle-weapons for a Cerberus. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Acknowledgments Many thanks to Taranis for inventing the From Rage to Salvation event for for his blessing as we continue it in his absence. Thanks to Captain Semper, Grotsmasha, knife&fork, Morticon and Warriorfish for their blessing regarding the event's revival and for their assistance. Thanks to Charlo and Herald of Sanguinius for their work on the signature awards ...and finally thanks to the B&C and the B&C Frater for being here and thereby having an interest in such things. Hope you all enjoy the event! http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10568/sml_gallery_62972_10568_1098.jpg Vows The Angelic Host What follows are the vows of the Angelic Host. These follow the vow format for non-Death Company Frater and will be separated out into Primary and Secondary Vows where appropriate. The Lost What follows are the vows of The Lost. Note that as they are charged with completing their ETL vows before making any further vows, their vows are slightly different from those who are entering the competition and using the RTS format.

From Rage to Salvation is a casual painting competition with the focus on encouraging the Frater to finish those half-complete units in our collections, or to paint up something new to add to them. Perhaps you're working on something for the Blood Angels Legion right now; perhaps you've got a Blood Angels Legion project on hold and gathering dust; perhaps you've been looking for and excuse to paint those BaC and BoP boxes as reinforcements for the Blood Angels Legion in anticipation of the upcoming release(s)? Well, now is a good a time as any to resume or start them! To enter, all you need is something available to Legion Astartes: Blood Angels and paint it up (or continue painting it up) in our Legion's colours and upon completion before 30th November 2018, there is an award lying in wait. For more information, either follow the link above or drop me a PM; we're certainly happy to have you should you be interested. Looking forward to seeing more 30k stuff soon!
