Thus I decree:
I, Brother Cambrius of the Liber Astartes, vow on the honour of my Chapter to paint and present at least 2 Tactical Squads, a Vehicle and a Commander of my new army, the Vanquishers on or before the 31st of March, 2011. I promise to provide at least two WIP updates, preferably with pictures, in that time. I vow that if I should fail, I will provide the Librarium with an article and wear the Signature of Shame until my penitence period is done.
Having failed last year's challenge spectacularly, I still carry the sig of shame and I patiently await for the Librarium's revamp when I'll post up my article on making my Cambrius Pattern Helms. I have also decreed that should I fail again, I will also work to add two further articles for failing twice in a row, thus I would have to submit three articles overall, one of them being my article for last year's.
But onto the actual challenge I have set myself. I've decided to start a fresh army to build and paint for this year's gaming, which will hopefully include me participating in a Doubles Tournament and also an inter-Uni competition in April. After painting numerous miniatures as part of my ongoing Operation Reclamation project, I decided to go with making a purple Chapter, as painting with purple was so easy and satisfying. You don't see many purple armies either, unless they're Hawk Lords or Pre-Heresy Emperor's Children, so it'll stand out nicely.
After consulting the many, many chapters I had created using the SMP, I decided to choose and work on a Chapter I called the Vanquishers:
They are a Crimson Fists descendant, who specialise in City fighting. I intend to portray that with the modelling, giving a close quarters firefight aspect to the models. I'll also be adding random bits and pieces to the bases to hep emphasize this, however much of it will probably be sprues cut up in various ways to represent this as I have no City bitz to use. I also intend to use the moulded Crimson Fist shoulderpad bitz and other iconography available from GW's online store, to help make the models stand out a little bit more.
Onwards with the challenge!
