What is The Call to Arms, I hear you ask?


The Call to Arms is a new multi-forum event designed to celebrate the coming of Warhammer 40,000's new, 10th Edition, and encourage us all to start a new army, or bring our current armies into the new edition.


The Forums of the B&C are divided up into three Strongholds; Imperium, Chaos, and Xenos.  For the next three months the 8 Forums of the Xenos Stronghold will be competing to claim Victory over the other Xenos Forums, with all three Strongholds being compared at the conclusion of the Event.

There are two categories for Victory in both the Forums and Strongholds, the Forum/Stronghold who has painted the most points worth of models, and the Forum/Stronghold with the highest % of completion (Participants vs Completions).

Start Date: 1st July 

End Date: 30th September



How do I join in?


Models for The Call to Arms have been allocated a point value based around their size, the time they take to paint, and the amount of effort generally taken to paint them, this is why some models of different sizes appear in the same categories, and why Characters are worth more.

The below list should cover every model for the Votann;


1pt    Hearthkin, Hearthguard, Bezerkers, Thunderkyn,

2pts   Pioneers

5pts   Sagitaur Transport

6pts   Hekaton Land Fortress


5pts    Leader and Unit Composition: 1 OR Epic Hero, Einhyr Champion, Grimnir, Iron Master, Khal



1pt    3 Munitorum Barrels, 4 Munitorum Crates, Zone Morialtis/Gallowdark Column, Octarius Ramshackle Bridges

2pts   Aegis Defence Line Section, Aegis Defence Platform, Galvanic Servo-haulers, Thermic Plasma Conduit Section, Imperialis Ruins Wall Section, Zone Morialtis/Gallowdark Wall, Octarius Scrap Heap/Barricade

3pts   Fronteris Vox Antenna, Fronteris Auspex Shrine, Thermo-exchanger Shrine, Octarius Oil Rig, Necromunda Fuel Tanks

4pts   Munitorum Container, Mechsnicus Transterrsnic Gantry, Galvanic Servo-crane, Big'ead Bossbunka, Skull Alter, Noctilith Crown, Octarius Ramshackle Walls

5pts   Tidewall Droneport, Tidewall Shieldline, Feculant Gnarlmaw, Miasmic Malignifier

6pts   Fronteris Landing Pad, Mechanicus Forgeshine, Mechanicus Galvanic Magnavent

8pts   Fronteris Hab Bunker, Manufactorum Administratus,

10pts Zone Morialtis Gang Stronghold


Note: Custom/Scratchbuilt terrain- use this list as a guide as to how many points tour terrain is worth, but please make sure to mention your terrain is custom when Vowing.



All points are per model. For example if you pledge 20 Hearthkin (1ptx20), 3 Pioneers (2ptsx3), a Sagitaur (5pts), and a Khal (5pts), your vow would be worth 36pts


If you have any questions or queries, or there's a model you want to paint but isn't listed, just @Grotsmasha or @Triszin and we'll be more than happy to help you out.



Please feel free use this thread as a place to share your thoughts, ideas, and WIPs throughout the Event to motivate and inspire the Leagues, and the Xenos to Victory!!!

So, any fellow Kin taking part in this?


I'm new to the Space Dwarves, but yes indeed!


Dyno-Mine Extra-terrestrial and Colonial Holdings Ltd stands with you!

(Just called D-MECH by most Kin)

A corporately owned Minor League with big aspirations, and a good eye for mineral wealth extraction We've got plenty of expendable valuable workers, lucrative contracts and a whole lot of yellow paint - what more could enterprising Kin want? :biggrin:

I gotta say Trokair, I really like that colour scheme. It's both straightforward and striking in all the right ways.


Dyno-Mine Extra-terrestrial and Colonial Holdings Ltd reports a completion also! 8 Points secured in the name of the Ancestors:


(Plus my two test dwarves from before the event)


I've really enjoyed painting these guys, and while I can't fit more in before the Call to Arms ends, D-MECH is definitely going to pursue a vigorous recruitment program (as in I'm gonna buy more Dwarves) in the future.

Don’t tell the Kin, but part of the inspiration for the scheme was a Duncan video painting a gold and green LotR Elf.


The other part of the inspiration was more dwarfish though, a brass and red scheme I used for my Necromunda Squats (which itself was a test for what evolved into my World Eater scheme).


Also Kudos to you on the yellow scheme, I am always a little scared of yellow as a main colour in a project.
