Recommended Posts

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


The Call to Arms is a new multi-forum event designed to encourage us all to start a new army, or bolster our current armies.


The Forums of the B&C are divided up into four Strongholds; Imperium, Chaos, Xenos, and Heresy.  For the next three months the 7 Forums of the Imperium Stronghold will be competing to claim Victory over the other Imperial Forums, with all four 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: 15th June 

End Date: 17th 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 Knights;


4pts   Armiger Knights

10pts Questoris, Valliant, Castellan, and Cerastus Knights

20pts Arcastus Knights, Warhound Titan

30pts Reaver Titan

40pts Warbringer Titan

50pts Warlord Titan



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 2 Wardens (2x10pts), 1 Valiant (10pts), 1x Arcastus (20pts), your vow would be worth 50pts


If you have any questions or queries, or there's a model you want to paint but isn't listed, just @Grotsmasha and I'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 Knights, and the Imperium to Victory!!!

Because I already had a pretty sizable knight army for this years Iron Gauntlet I'd decided on expanding on my Knight House, the House Garaipeña. Call to Arms and IG lined up just so this year that I can vow for both, and in doing so, I figured in for a penny in for a pound. Thus I'm vowing a cerastus, 2 dominus, 2 quistoris, and 10 armiger plus a skyshield. I might have chosen a thorny route, but I've got the power of block painting and Endurance Racing on my side. 6Wpyb70.jpeg

A minor update. All Skeletons have been basecoated in metallic, armor panels are next. There was a slight setback with primer, because of the heat, I ended up with a very grainy texture. The first coats of gunmetal ended up looking more like glitter, but multiple layers and some mixing of metallics with finer grains has helped to at least make it look like it's supposed to be that way.
