+++Age of Darkness Loyalist Outpost (AoD-L)+++


Recommended Posts

+++AGE OF DARKNESS LOYALIST OUTPOST+++

 

http://fortressofunforgiven.homestead.com/ETL_6_Poster_02_Forum_AOD_Loyalist.jpg

 

Welcome to the Age of Darkness – Loyalist (AoD-L) Outpost. AoD-L belongs to the “Age of Darkness” Faction (AoD). Here is the home for those Horus Heresy fans of a Loyalist inclination. 

 

HERE IS WHERE YOU MUST POST YOUR VOWS

 

Here you must also post your “before” and “after” pics of your vows as well as any WIP you may want to share. You may also use this thread to discuss the progress of the event with your fellow participants, exchange ideas, offer and receive modelling/painting advice and generally have some ETL–related fun!

 

You can vow any Units from all official Black and Red books or PDFs (even experimental) – provided the points are taken from the latest version. 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: THE COLOURS OR LOYALTY AND TREACHERY
The only limitation is that participants of the AoD-L Outpost cannot choose units explicitly labelled “Traitor”. Other than that, there is no restriction. You can paint whatever Legion or other HH sub-faction you like provided you respect the condition above. 
 

IMPORTANT NOTE: TITANS ARE TITANS
It is a fact that the AoD Faction will suffer from a discount in points vs. 40k for similar units. This is not viewed as an overwhelming handicap in general, but we believe it is especially unfair for Titans. As such, for Titans and Titans only, the AoD faction will be using the 40k points, i.e. 

  • Warhound: 2,000pts
  • Reaver: 4,000pts
  • Warlord: 6,000pts 

IMPORTANT NOTE: ALWAYS USE THE LATEST PUBLICATION TO SELECT AND PRICE YOUR UNITS
This means that if there is an update of any Red book or a new Black book that revises pre-existing units during the life of the event, then all vows made AFTER the release of the updated book must be priced according to the new book. Also, any official PDF releases relevant to Horus Heresy are also admissible (even if experimental) until an official publication that contains them is released. 
Before you post you vow make sure you familiarise yourself with the ETL VI rules. You can find a link to the ETL VI rules below:

Draws paintbrush... :ph34r.:

 

I, Phatsquirre1, rise to the challenge of E Tenebrae Lux and vow the following for the loyalist faction, in honor of Lord Guilliman, the color blue, (da ba dee, da ba dai) and Him on Earth:

 

FDxaERf.jpg?1

 

1x Land Raider Phobos with Frag Assault Launchers (240)

1x Sicaran Arcus Strike Tank with Lascannons (245)

1x10 Tactical Marines (Whose heads, right hands, and bolters are evidently still on back-order from your friendly local armorium...), but will eventually be bolters, vexilla, extra ccw's, and Sergeant with Artificer armor and power axe. (175)

 

This vow, which totals 660 points from the AOD books, is sworn to be completed on or before August 1, 2018. Success will bring glory in the eyes of Guilliman and Him-on-Earth, failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker.

Hail, brothers! It's a beautiful thing to see the Loyalists' rank swell.

I, StruManChu, being of daring-do and chipper spirit, rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE Lux on the side of the Loyalists in the Age of Darkness, and vow to complete for the all-glory of the Emperor a force of the Throneworld's greatest Praetorians, the Imperial Fists, of 1,380 points total value, on or before August 1st, 2018. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end.

I'm trying to do as many Force Org slots per vow as I'm able, to make sure I'm not just doing the fun stuff. All of these units are taken from the master Army List I wrote up a little while back for my Imperial Fists, which is currently sitting at around 7,000 points. I'm not going to be able to do all that in the three months we have, but I'll do as much as I can. Honour demands no less.

Master of Signals with Artificer Armour, Power Sword & Refractor Field - 130
Terminator Squad (5) with 5 x Thunder Hammers and Vigil Pattern Storm Shields - 310
Veteran Tactical Squad (5) with Nuncio-Vox, Melta Bombs and Heavy Bolter. Sergeant with Artificer Armour, Power Fist - 180
Breacher Squad (10) with 2 x Flamers. Sergeant with Artificer Armour, Power Fist - 245
Seeker Squad (5) with 4 x Combi-Flamers & Nuncio-Vox. Sergeant w/ Artificer Armour, Melta Bombs - 220
Land Raider Phobos with Auxiliary Drive - 235
Bunker - 55
Total - 1,380.

I won't be able to sign off this post with the enthusiasm that I want to without getting told off for rude words, so I'll simply say this...
Ave Imperator!

Well, here it goes again. I have been debating what side to join, part of me wanted to join the traitors because it would allow me to do my hybrid 30/40k Death Guard alongside my beloved Emperor's Children. However, my Emperor's Children are loyalists and as such I can't sully them....

 

My master plan that has never really born fruit was to do a crusade era force, pre Istvaan. I managed to get a decent size of EC done last ETL but haven't really managed too much since. Now is the time to win glory for the Phoenician and the Emperor! The pledge will be a bit cheeky in some sense as it will allow me to finish off half done units - notably the veterans who I have 4 done.

 

My assault marines will be a mix of MK2 and MK4 because I have 1 'Vanguard Vet' elite assault marine done as a concept model and the others have been sat gathering dust as I tried to source parts, so I will add to this unit and start building my MK2s - of which I just have 5. Hopefully over the course of the ETL I'll manage to get a 'veteran unit' and a regular unit of MK2s - meaning 20 marines, but at this stage it will be a vow for 10 of mixed marks.

 

 

I, Eidolon, Lord Commander of the Third Legion, rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX on the side of the Loyalist in this Age of Darkness and vow to complete for the glory of the Emperor and Phoenician a fast attack/air assault themed force as detailed below and coming to a total value of 823 points as described in the Red and Black Books on or before August 1st, 2018. Success will bring eternal glory for the Emperor and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker.

I'll have to create the dozer blade from scratch.

The "auxiiary drive"  :sweat:

Some of the infantry models need minor touch-ups, the land speeder driver needs and arm, and I'll also create a new hatch for the vindicator. Hopefully I'll have everything ready to prime during the week!

Brothers, this will not sbe my last vow, nor shall I fail in any vow. A true son of Dorn perseveres (and uses effective time management).

Small update, I have gone into this event without really having a colour scheme in mind other than some vague ideas. I am using a grey metal as my main colour and I was going to use one or two other metals for various details. So here is a colour test of the four none grey metal paints I found in my box. From left to right, Scramming Bell, Retributor Armour, Sycorax Bronze and Runelord Brass.

gallery_29932_12734_83362.jpg

Which one do you lot think is the best to proceed with. The red and gold metals have good contrast and I think they will work; however the bronze is a little closer to what I had in mind but in the end none of them are quite right, and maybe one of the copper colours would be better.

Any recommendations?

I'm gonna agree with Viridia, the left ones are too strong in my opinion, whereas the two on the right (and specially the runelord brass) blend better, and are similar to most mechanicum paint schemes. Maybe you could use the retributor armour to paint just the coils and some details on the weapon, and use the runelord brass for the rest of parts? Maybe this way the weapon will pop out a bit, but the contrast will not be too strong.

 

Another suggestion: maybe you could try the stronger colours or a golden tone for the "faceplate", if you don't want to do it black.
